    Product Description

    PERFORMANCE

    10*+2 Phases Digital VRM Design with Low RDS(on) MOSFET

    Optimized for 8-Core Intel® Core™ CPU

    GIGABYTE GAMING series motherboards use a 10*+2 phase PWM+ Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs design to support the latest 8-core Intel® Core™ CPUs by offering incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power- hungry and energy-sensitive components as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability.

    * Doubled from 5 phases with current balancing.

    Benefits of Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs

    • Optimized gate charge to minimize switching losses. 
    • Lower temperature, smaller size, better thermal characteristics.

    Advanced Thermal Design

    MOSFET Heatsinks

    Multiple cuts on heatsinks improves thermal performance by increasing heat dissipation surface and maintain stylish aesthetic.

    Thick Thermal Pad

    Improved thickness of the thermal pad to 1.5mm, gives superior heat dissipation of MOSFETs.

    Pre-installed I/O Shield

    With an integrated I/O shield, building an GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier. 

    Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4000MHz and Beyond*

    GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4000MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their motherboard.

    What is XMP?

    DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.

    * XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module. Please visit www.gigabyte.com to see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.

    2-Way CrossFire™ Multi-Graphics

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

    LIGHTING

    Support RGB Lighting Effect in Full Color

    Personalize your next PC rig to your liking by selecting the color of your choice to illuminate the external RGB light strip.

    AUDIO

    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 the most realistic sound effects for gamers.

    Audio Noise Guard

    GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting Illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.

    CONNECTIVITY

    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.

    The Industry's Leading LAN Static-Electricity & Surge Protection

    GIGABYTE motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard and its components against potential damage caused by static electricity. GIGABYTE motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.

    Dual-Mode M.2 Slot Design

    Support PCIe NVMe + SATA SSDs

    GIGABYTE Motherboards are built with dual M.2 slots. With a PCIe NVMe + SATA dual-mode design on M.2 slots. This configuration is designed for flexibility and adaptation to fit most users' and gamers' requests.

    PERFORMANCE FUELED BY OPTANE

    The Z390 Platform supports Intel's latest Optane technology. Optane fuels storage performance by acting as a cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional mechanical drives.

    Native Intel USB 3.1 Gen 2 Controller

    Intel's native USB 3.1 host controller provides USB 3.1 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps .With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

    COOLING

    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 and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—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 preferences. 

    For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.

    ULTRA DURABLE

    Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor

    Industry Leading Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor

    The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.

    Ultra Durable™ Memory Armor

    GIGABYTE exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion/twisting and plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.

    Solid Pin Power Connectors

    Z390 motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin + 4pin power connectors for offering stable power supply while CPU overloading.

    Solid Pin Power connector advantages
