Description

GIGABYTE's 200 series motherboards boast the advanced LED system. With more customizability than ever and a convenient and intuitive UI, you'll have a blast making your GIGABYTE your own. LED enthusiasts now have even more options with the ability to customize multiple zones independently. For a more functional use, the bright and vibrant LEDs can be configured to display the PC's temperature or load. For even more LED goodness RGBW strips are now supported for more true and vibrant whites.

  • Surround lighting

    Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.
  • Swappable Overlay for Accent LED

    GIGABYTE brings even more color and life to your system with an Accent LED Overlay. This overlay complements the RGB Fusion technology in GIGABYTE motherboards adding more flare and style to your gaming machine. With the swappable overlay users can utilize different patterns and designs to make their system their own.
  • Independently programmable onboard pin header for RGBW LED strips

    Not bright enough? You can install standard external RGB or RGBW light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. With RGBW light strips that have a dedicated white color LED, you can have brighter and more vibrant colors.
  • Smart Fan 5

    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.
  • Interoperable sensors and fans

    Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input.
  • Enhanced BIOS interface

    The enhanced BIOS interface also has the advanced features seen in the Smart Fan 5 UI, such as: the ability to set triggers based on different temperature sensors on the board, fan curve definition and the temperature interval setting, which can prevent fan rotation noise caused by sudden temperature change.
  • Front USB 3.1 Gen 2 header

    Equipped with next-generation connectivity onboard GIGABYTE motherboards already support the cases of the future. Onboard headers for USB 3.1 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.1 drive or charging your mobile device.
  • Smart headphone amp

    Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics - preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.
  • High-end audio capacitors

    GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high-quality capacitors help deliver high-resolution and high-fidelity audio to provide realistic sound effects for gamers.
  • Intel GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet accelerator networking

    Intel GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.
  • PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2

    GIGABYTE' M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices.
  • 2-way SLI / 3-way CrossFire multi-graphics

    Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand high frame rates without compromising on resolution.
