To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and overclocking performance of AMD's new generation CPU, GIGABYTE Gaming series motherboard equip the best VRM design ever built with the highest quality components. Ultra Durable SMD PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 Connector The first PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 Slot supports the latest M.2 25110 form factor. Reinforced PCIe 5.0 M.2 connectors with metal shielding to provide higher strength. Shielded Memory Routing All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference. EXPO and XMP Dual Support GIGABYTE AM5 MB supports both AMD EXPO and Intel XMP overclocking memory modules for maximal compatibility. MB will automatically detect both profiles format in SPD, users can choose to enable one of profiles from BIOS menu and easily reach overclocked memory performance. DDR5 Auto Booster Automatically Boost the Native DDR5 frequency to 5000MHz while the system is under heavy loading by a single click. AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 User Profile Define and create your own SPD profile into Native, AMD EXPO and Intel XMP 3.0 memory modules. One user-defined profile can be saved, loaded either locally or from/to an external storage device. - One empty SPD profile can be defined by users and carry to next computer - Quick memory performance simulation based on user input clock and timing parameters - Profile save and load function to share your memory parameters online AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue. 3% Cooler by implementing 2X copper PCB Design By adopting 2X copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to its high thermal conductivity and lower impedance. SMART FAN 6 Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface. Cooling Features High Current Support Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water Cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection Precision Control Multiple temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve Dual Curve Mode Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario Fan Stop Fan can stop completely below users' specified temperature point Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI 1. Improve fan curve UI We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control. 2. Slope/Stair dual graph mode Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval. 3. Manual Input For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control. 4. EZ Tuning Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve. 5. Fan curve profile Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS. 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E The latest Wireless solution 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E with new dedicated 6GHz band, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 2.4Gbps. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission. First adopter on 2.5GbE LAN onboard 2X Faster than ever - Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5GbE network connectivity, with at least 2 times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking, perfectly designed for gamers with ultimate online gaming experience. - Support Multi-Gig(10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 Ethernet Connecting the Future - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C Featuring the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 design which is doubled the performance than previous generation of USB 3.2 Gen 2. It works up to 20Gbps ultra-fast data transfer while connecting to USB 3.2 compliant peripherals. Through the USB Type-C connector, users can enjoy the flexibility of reversible connection to access and store massive amounts of data rapidly. 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 boards sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. RGB Fusion 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 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard. Friendly User Interface The EASY MODE shows important hardware information in one page including CPU clock, Memory, Storage, Fan. My Favorites Add constantly used items into the favorite menu for quick access. Storage Information Show all kinds of storage information including SATA, PCIE and M.2 interface. Changelog List all changes before saving and exiting bios. Quickly review overall settings modification. Intuitive Load Line Curve Clearly show each loadline calibration setting in an intuitive curve graph. GIGABYTE CONTROL CENTER (GCC) is a unified software for all GIGABYTE supported products. It provides newly designed intuitive user interface to control all essential function. - Unified software platform for all Gigabyte supported products - Intuitive user interface for an eased experience - Modularized control components only for installed hardware - Auto update function to keep system up to date and support future products Multi-key A multi-function reset button that can be reconfigured to other function in BIOS for different user scenarios. RGB Switch Turn off all lighting effect on motherboard. Direct-To-BIOS Boot into BIOS menu directly without pressing any keyboard button. Safe Mode Boot into BIOS safe mode to change specific option without losing other BIOS settings. EZ-Latch With GIGABYTE EZ-Latch, you can DIY your PC in no time, quick and easy. Q-Flash Plus Update the BIOS easily without installing the CPU, memory and graphics card. With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don't need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS.
