Gaming 9 Cooling Performance

Smart Fan 5
Smart X299 Motherboard Cooling Technologies

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.

FAN STOP
Intelligent Fan Behaviour

Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.

X299 Cooling Control
Hybrid Fan Pin Headers and Temperature Sensors

Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—giving you absolute mastery over your PC. All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode. Includes support for one High-Current Pump up to 3 Amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fans.

New Smart Fan 5 Software
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.

X299 Chipset Power Performance

IR Digital PWM
IR Digital PWM and IR PowIRstage ICs

This new generation of IR digital power controllers and PowIRstage ICs feature Isense technology, which provide more precise current sensing accuracy. This helps evenly distribute the thermal loading between the PowIRstage ICs, preventing the overheating of each individual PowIRstage, resulting in longer lifespan and better reliability.

Server Level Chokes
Built-in Advanced Performance Tuning IC

GIGABYTE X299 series motherboards feature Server Level Chokes. Server level reliability / High current capacity / New design reduces heat created by power loss and provides efficient power delivery to CPU VRM area.

X299 Cooling Control
Hybrid Fan Pin Headers and Temperature Sensors

Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the X299 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 90MHz to 500MHz are now possible, so that overclockers are not limited to the 5% ranges of traditional straps.

CPU PEG bus, chipset PCIe bus and DMI bus (link between CPU and chipset) have the ability to change from default of 100MHz linearly up to 200MHz synchronously (Turbo B-Clock overclocking range may vary according to CPU, chipset and used devices capabilities.)

GIGABYTE X299 Speed Enhancements

Intel OPTANE
PERFORMANCE FUELED BY OPTANE

The GIGABYTE X299 Platform is the first enthusiast platform that supports Intel’s latest Optane technology. Optane fuels storage performance by acting as a cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional mechanical drives.

M.2 with Thermal Guard
M.2 Thermal Guard

With the AORUS X299 Series Motherboards, M.2 Thermal Guards are critical for enthusiasts who want the most out of their storage drives. The AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2s as it dissipates and reduces the heat on these storage devices.

U.2 Adaptor
NVMe Performance for PCIe SSDs

The new Intel 750 series SSDs offer an incredible increase in performance over SATA drives. Using the NVMe protocol which takes advantage of the fast bandwidth of PCIe Gen3 x4 lanes (32 Gb/s), the drives are a clear advantage for users looking to boot their OS faster, load their games in a flash and access large files without waiting. By implementing the U.2 Adaptor to support the 2.5” Intel 750 Series drive, GIGABYTE ensures that the users can benefit from the best performance (U.2 Adaptor is purchased separately. SSDs and cables not included.)

Easy Control Over the X299
