Different motherboard models have different number of fan pin headers and temperature sensors. Smart Fan 5 function may vary by model.
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.
AORUS ULTRA DURABLE
Industry Leading Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
The innovative 1 piece stainless steel shielding design from AORUS reinforces the PCIe Connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
Sulfur compounds from polution in the air you breathe can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical changes, causing these resistors to open or short out.
If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function quickly and without warning with a costly replacement the only option.
By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design, GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.
