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. Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand high frame rates without compromising on resolution. Gigabyte motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide realistic sound effects for gamers. Gigabyte Z370 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.
