RGB Fusion with Digital LED Support With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs. RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGBW / Digital LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colours and patterns, RGB Fusion on AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
AORUS Gaming Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v digital LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.
Multi-Zone Light Show Design 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.
Independently Programmable Onboard Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its colour from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colours. • RGB/UV: RGB/UV light strips can illuminate your PC with a fluorescent glow. With UV reactive cables, paint or liquid your PC can radiate with a luminous glow. • True White Colour: RGBW light strips can produce a pure white colour instead of mixing R/G/B to produce an inaccurate white. • Richer Colour: With dedicated white LEDs, light strips can produce a richer and brighter colour on the colour scale. • RGB Calibration: Different light strips sometimes have different RGB pin definitions, RGB Fusion software can relocate each pin location for the best compatibility.
GIGABYTE RGB Fusion APP Don't just make your PC shine, make it a work of art that friends will envy. With the GIGABYTE RGB Fusion mobile app users can watch as they control the lighting within their gaming PC. This gives users ease of access as they try and adjust colours and speeds for different modes, all this can be achieved away from the keyboard and monitor of their PC.
RGB Fusion (Advanced mode) With the all new RGB Fusion software, users have access to different preset LED lighting configurations with choice of colours. You can even set the LEDs to synchronize with your favourite music or have them change colours to indicate the CPU temperature. For true lighting experts there is an Advanced Mode, which can be fully customized by individual area with its own effects and colour transitions, along with specific duration and transition times. • Independent Control: Customized different colour for different section of board. • Synchronize with AORUS Graphics Cards: Synchronize colours with select AORUS video cards to complete the feel of your system. • Synchronize with RGB FUSION READY Peripherals: With a dazzling array of products supported, RGB Fusion is the software that brings it all together, letting your accessories synchronize to the same beat. • Fully Customizable: Adjust lighting animation with colour stops, colour duration, transition period, and colour effects. • Lighting Profile: Save, export and import profiles to quickly change effects based on your preference and to share with others.
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.
Fan Stop Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.
Hybrid Fan Pin Headers Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers—giving you absolute mastery over your PC. All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.
New Smart Fan 5 Software 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.
Interoperable Sensors and Fans Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).
Fan Curve Customize fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.
Durable Design and Easy Installation With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier and convenient. Users can expect excellent durability with the durable design of the pre-installed I/O shield.
Make Good Connection and Significantly Lower the Wires Capacity AORUS 400-series motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin power connectors for offering stable power supply while CPU overloading. Solid Pin Power connector advantages: • Larger contact area for electricity. • More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat. • Ultra durable and longer lifespan.
Industry Leading Ultra Durable PCIe Armour The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from AORUS reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
Start Sulphurisation Protection Sulphur 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-Sulphur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.
Diagnostic LEDs, Hardware Troubleshooting at a Glance Onboard LEDs controlled by the system BIOS indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component (CPU/DDR/VGA/HDD) is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
GIGABYTE Patented DualBIOS™ Design GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
Easy to Install "G Connector" Design The tiny cables of the front panel connectors can be hard to manipulate as space is restricted and indicators being tiny. With the G Connector, you can connect all the FP cables at once, simplifying the process of building your next PC and saving you some frustrations.
