Efficient Cooling for High-End Systems

aio monoblock

Fins-Array IIFins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance. Heat flow that goes through fins will enter from the leading edge of the louver and is then directed by other louvers or fins. This louver directed flow can greatly improve heat transfer performance. Because of pressure difference and flow separation, a circulation zone will be formed between louvered fins. This circulation will cause flow entrain and eject in the vortice form which improves thermal efficiency.

heatpipe ii

Direct-Touch Heatpipe IIWith an extra large 8mm heatpipe and made from a new manufacturing process to narrow the gap between the heatpipe and heatsink, new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.

thermal guard

AORUS M.2 THERMAL GUARD IIWith durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a new thermal solution for large capacity M.2 SSD devices with double side flash. The M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat before it gets too high.

noise detect

NOISE DETECTIONWith the new Noise Detection function, you can monitor the noise level of all devices including fans, CPU coolers, graphics card, etc, in real time. You can also determine how fast your fan speed needs to be. The included noise detection cable doesn't include any sound recording functions, it simply detects sound pressure while protecting your privacy.

headers

8X Hybrid FAN HEADERWith Smart Fan 5 you can ensure that your 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.
