AX370 GAMING K3 ATX Motherboard from GIGABYTE
Utilise AMD4 socket Gaming power with the ATX GAMING k3
The Gaming K3 from GIGABYTE is an impressive motherboard that comes packed with useful features for every-day computing and tools for when you’re gaming. Supporting Ryzen the power performance is already at an impressive level, on top of that it boasts Turbo B-Clock for advance performance, rapid USB 3.1 sockets, advance audio output, Killer Gaming Network and even LEDs to give it that aggressive gamer look. Cooling can be controlled via Smart Fan technology and you can rest assured in the build quality as the AX370 GAMING K3 comes with protective armouring on PCIe and memory slots.
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.
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.
Light up your pc with an ambient glow
Ambient lights are now programmable, You can have them beat to the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to create an atmosphere that enhances the environment of your game, movie or music.
Audio Output Components
ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp
Exceptional audio listening experience with 120dB SNR and support for DSD128 hardware decode. Smart Headphone Amp automatically adjusts volumes based on detected headphone impedance.
USB DAC-UP 2
clean, isolated and low-noise power
GIGABYTE improves upon USB DAC-UP technologies with USB DAC-UP 2. USB DAC-UP 2 continues to provide clean, isolated and low-noise power while adding the ability to compensate for voltage drop. Virtual reality pioneers and gamers alike can rest assured that their expensive accessories and peripherals will not encounter connectivity or power deficiency issues with the GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP 2. With Gaming Gear drawing large amounts of power and having firm specification requirements USB DAC-UP 2 is up for the challenge.
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 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.
Built-in Advanced Performance Tuning IC
Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the AORUS X370 series motherboards enable overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice. With the new linear range adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 100MHz to 300MHz are now possible.
* Turbo B-Clock overclocking range may vary according to CPU capabilities.
Hardware Troubleshooting at a Glance
Onboard LEDs controlled by the system BIOS indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component (CPU/DDR/VGA/HDD) is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
