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.

• 5 Fan/Water Pump Connectors.
• 6 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 Fan.
• System Fan.

Diagnostic LEDs: 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.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 3866Hz and Beyond*
GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 3866MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their GIGABYTE motherboard.

What is XMP?
DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module. Please visit www.gigabyte.com to see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.

Industry Leading Ultra Durable PCIe Armor
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.

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 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.

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.

Reviews
Gigabyte Z270-Gaming K3, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way CrossFire, Killer GbE, USB 3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good board It's hard for me to review motherboards as the performance differences are much less immediately measurable as say fps performance with a new graphics card or compute performance with CPU. All i know is everything works perfectly, it's a nice looking board with sweet LED lighting and has a lot of useful features. Though i actually prefer MSI Bios the Gigabyte bios is easy to use.
