AORUS 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 & Temperature Sensors

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.
  • Includes support for one High-Current Pump up to 3 Amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fans.

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.

System Information Viewer

GIGABYTE System Information Viewer is a central location that gives you access to your current system status.

This is the first top of the line motherboard I have ever purchased, admittedly I chose this one over others because of the crazy deal you get with the free water cooler and steam code. Now that i have installed it I can 100% recommend this board to anyone. Overclocking so far has been a breeze with the generic CPU UPGRADE options in the Bios, I put my new Coffee lake 8700k straight upto 5GHz with it and its very stable, passing 3d mark, prime 95 stress tests etc keeping under 90c maximum temp in the test which it will never go to under usual loads (70c whilst gaming). the RGB colours are great, with the windows Gigabyte app you can set them to do all sorts of patterns and separate colour combinations across the board. you won't be disappointed with this board.
Website User on 1st December 2017
This motherboard is pretty sweet, the customization on the RGB is insane. Perhaps a little over the top, but if RGB is your thing then this mobo has plenty. It's good value for what you get at this price range (£230), plus you get a free 240mm cooler and £40 steam codes... also you get a whole A4 sheet of stickers with cool logos, I've stuck them all around the edge of my monitor and on my bedroom door so my mum knows not to disturb me when I am pwning noobs. All in all it is a sweet mobo, great audio, great looks, impressive functionality, great value, great buy!
