Product Overview 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.

• 3 Fan Connectors.
• 5 Temperature Sensors.
• All Fan Pin Headers Upgraded to Hybrid Fan Headers.
• Supports High Current Fans up to 24W (2Ax12V) with Over-Current Protection.
• Intuitive UI for Fan Control.

All Hybrid Fan Pin Headers
• All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.
• Supports up to 2 amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fans.
• Supports Closed Loop Watercooling, CPU Fans, System Fans, & Watercooling Pumps.

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.

Interoperable Sensors and Fans
Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).

Fan Curve
Customize fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.

Enhanced BIOS Interface
The enhanced BIOS interface also has the advanced features seen in the Smart Fan 5 UI, such as: the ability to set triggers based on different temperature sensors on the board, fan curve definition and the temperature interval setting, which can prevent fan rotation noise caused by sudden temperature change—all without having to load Windows.

Immersive VR Gaming Experience
• VR requires more performance than Full HD graphics for a steady 90FPS or greater.
• Only Gaming PCs can provide the best VR experience.

Realtek® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking
Realtek® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.

Fast Onboard Storage with NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 110mm M.2 (Up to 32 Gb/s)
GIGABYTE's M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices.

Fast USB 3.1 Gen 2 Solution
The latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 offers staggering 10Gb/s transfer speeds. 2x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 along with backwards compatibility with existing USB devices.

GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket
• First Lock: Inserted from the top for better retention.
• Second Lock: Soldered for a stronger bond.

Anti-Sulfur Resistor Design
Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny on-board resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.

High Quality On-board Audio Design
Delivers high quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

• Audio Noise Guard with LED Trace Path Lighting.
• High-End Audio Components.

Humidity Protection Glass Fabric PCB
There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.

High Temperature Protection Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs Design
GIGABYTE motherboards use Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which reduce energy wastage through unnecessary residual heat dissipation. This all amounts to tangible energy savings which are beneficial for both end-users and the environment without impacting system performance.

Refreshed BIOS Easy, Smart, and Friendly
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.

GIGABYTE APP Center
The GIGABYTE APP Center gives you easy access to a wealth of GIGABYTE apps that help you get the most from your GIGABYTE motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, GIGABYTE APP Center allows you to easily launch all GIGABYTE apps installed on your system, check related updates online, and download the latest apps, drivers, and BIOS.

EasyTune™
GIGABYTE's EasyTune™ is a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings or adjust system and memory clocks and voltages in a Windows environment. With Smart Quick Boost, one click is all it takes to automatically overclock your system, giving an added performance boost when you need it the most.

System Information Viewer
GIGABYTE System Information Viewer is a central location that gives you access to your current system status. Monitor components such as the clocks and processor, set your preferred fan speed profile, create alerts when temperatures get too high or record your system’s behaviour; these are the possibilities of the System Information Viewer.

@BIOS
The GIGABYTE @BIOS app allows you to update your system’s BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface. @BIOS can automatically download the latest version from the GIGABYTE servers or you can update your BIOS from a file on your computer. @BIOS also allows you to save your current BIOS to a file, recover your previous BIOS from an image and backup your BIOS to an image.

3D OSD
3D OSD automatically detects and displays your system information during games, allowing you to easily get a hold of your system information without switching between screens.

GIGABYTE Patented DualBIOS™ (UEFI) Design
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

Reviews
Gigabyte AB350M-GAMING 3, AMD B350, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), Realtek LAN, USB 3.1 A, MicroATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great board which can only improve as drivers & BIOS mature I am not normally an early adopter but liked the look of the Ryzen so pre ordered an upgrade to my old living room microATX PC. The Ryzen 1700 is an awesome CPU & this board is perfect for a microatx build. The extra full length PCIe slot, M.2 connector & back panel USB numbers set it apart from the competition. The 65w TDP Ryzen 1700 runs very cool & quiet on the stock wraith cooler & overall this is an amazing value / performance / size setup. If I have to nit pick there are 2 very very minor criticisms. Firstly the M.2 slot is under the graphics PCIe so the SSD gets warm when gaming (55 degree C vs 33 deg for off board HDD). Laptop SSD's often get warm so it will probably be OK. To be fair Gigabyte have crammed so much kit onto this board there really isn't anywhere else it could go. Finally the bios & control software works fine in the most part but just 'feels' a bit slow / temperamental. As Gigabyte figure out how to get the best from Ryzen I am sure BIOS /Driver & software updates will just make the party even better.
