Realtek 8118 LAN is a high performance and friendly network chip for gaming players with automatic bandwidth allocation to ensure the highest network priority of the game or application. It can provide users the most comprehensive features and the fastest and smoothest Internet experience. 

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. 

LIGHTING

Q: Hi, does this (or other B450 boards) come with a BIOS that supports 3rd gen Ryzen? I looked on their site and it seems the BIOS version that supports 3rd gen was released some time ago, but I don't know if the boards stocked have this or an older BIOS?

Well built board. Good lay out. BIOS easy to use and set-up. Only issue I had was with my NVMe M.2 SSD, but after I updated the BIOS, it worked fine. This was a v1.0 board that came with BIOS F41.

Installation went smoothly and system is up and running. I have no idea of its gaming capabilities as I just use it for music purposes where it is working perfectly. Will be ordering same again in the coming weeks to upgrade the other music pc.
