Fan Header Control

cooling gaming PCs with ease

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.

All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode. Plus, it supports up to 2 amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fans.

Smart Fan Software

Control Fan Power performance with this X370

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.

Intelligent BIOS

enhanced BIOS interface with GIGABYTE AORUS

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.

Audio Output Components

High Quality Onboard Audio Design

Delivers high quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

Anti-Sulfur Resistor

true resistance and durability

Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard 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.

Realtek GbE LAN

with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Software

Realtek Gigabit 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.

GIGABYTE APP Center

Easy Motherboard Manipulation and modifying

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.

Features:
EasyTune | System Information Viewer | @BIOS | 3D OSD

Temperature Protection

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.

Moisture Protection

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.

TriDef SmartCam

Custom Gaming Stream Mod Software

To facilitate being the full streaming solution each AORUS motherboard includes TriDef SmartCam software, you are now able to remove backgrounds without the hassle of using a green screen. Through the SmartCam application you can now apply live filters, and fully control your background, not only while streaming, but also through other video applications such as Skype.

*Free 1 month TriDef SmartCam License.

Onboard M.2 Storage

PCIe Gen3 x4 110mm M.2 (Up to 32 Gb/s)

AORUS' M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices.

Gigabyte AB350M-GAMING 3, AMD B350, S AM4, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), Realtek LAN, USB 3.1 A, MicroATX is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from BIOS bug prevents Linux usage This board has a bug in the BIOS that means that linux won't boot. Apparently this bug affects all Gigabyte AM4 boards, and they have known about it since March and refused to fix it. You can read all the details on Lauchpad, Bug 1671360. Even if you never plan to use Linux, I don't recommend Gigabyte because of their poor attitude to customers. If they won't fix a bug now when the board is current, then how likely are they to fix a windows one in a couple of years time, when there are newer products to sell instead. I also found issues with the placement of the internal SATA sockets. They are on the edge of the board, and became inaccessible when mounted in my mATX case. The one good thing is that after all the problems I had, Scan processed my return quickly and gave me a full refund without fuss.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mATX board Decent board, few downsides, mostly related to being a new platform that still needs tweaks. The RAM speed defaulted to 2133Mhz despite my 2600Mhz RAM. Changed in the BIOS but after reboot went back to the default. This seems to be fixed with the most recent BIOS update (F2) so remember to check Gigabyte's site for the most recent version. Otherwise this board does everything it needs to do, no problems or instability (other than the RAM issue). The red lighting is a nice touch and you can turn it off if you don't like it. Lots of ports in easily accessible places. Could have done with another fan header but that's about the only thing i would change.

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.
