Description:

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.

All Hybrid Fan Pin Headers
• All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.
• Supports up to 2 amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fans.

New Smart Fan 5 Software
Interoperable Sensors and Fans
Each fan can be customised to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).Fan Curve
Customise fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.
Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage scenario. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.

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—all without having to load Windows.

Ambient LED
Ambient lights are now programmable, You can have them beat to the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to create an atmosphere that enhances the environment of your game, movie or music.

ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp
Exceptional audio listening experience with 120dB SNR and support for DSD128 hardware decode.
Smart Headphone Amp automatically adjusts volumes based on detected headphone impedance.

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.

USB DAC-UP 2 Adjustable Voltage USB Port with Dedicated Power Design
GIGABYTE improves upon USB DAC-UP technologies with USB DAC-UP 2.
USB DAC-UP 2 continues to provide clean, isolated and low-noise power while adding the ability to compensate for voltage drop.
Virtual reality pioneers and gamers alike can rest assured that their expensive accessories and peripherals will not encounter connectivity or power deficiency issues with the GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP 2. With Gaming Gear drawing large amounts of power and having firm specification requirements USB DAC-UP 2 is up for the challenge.

Turbo B-Clock
Built-in Advanced Performance Tuning IC
Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the AORUS X370 series motherboards enable overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to the desired value of their choice. With the new linear range adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 100MHz to 300MHz are now possible.
* Turbo B-Clock overclocking range may vary according to CPU capabilities.

Dual Armor DIMM and PCIe Metal Shielding
Never worry about your heavy graphics card damaging your motherboard again. AORUS’ proprietary Ultra Durable PCIe Metal Shielding reinforces the PCIe connector to prevent slot damage due to heavy graphics card. The DIMM and PCIe metal shield also provides extra strength for when you forget to release the lock while replacing your component, adding a foolproof option which can save your PC’s life.
Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
Enhanced Strength PCIe Design, Support for Heavy Graphics Cards For Extreme / VR Gaming Station
