With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.
Hybrid fan pin headers
Hybrid fan headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or voltage mode.
Anti-sulfur resistor design
Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an anti-sulfur design, GIGABYTE makes these motherboards extremely durable.
High-quality audio design
Delivers high-quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create realistic sound effects for professional gamers.
There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions.
