Once done, it’s simple to save and share your lighting profile with others.

Smart Fan 5 Tech

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.

GIGABYTE Smart Fan Software

Control Fan Power performance with this Z270X

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.

Z270X BIOS Interface

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.

Motherboard Audio Technology

Ultra-Gaming features High-End Audio Components

The ALC1220 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec with up to 120dB SNR for crystal clear audio and features such as Smart Headphone Amp, 114dB SNR recording for precise voice chats and hardware decoding of DSD128, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.

GIGABYTE Gaming motherboards use high-end Chemicon audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers.

Z270X USB DAC-UP 2 Tech

Safety for your Expensive Accessories

AORUS 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 AORUS 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.

U.2 Onboard (NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4)

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 port onboard to support the 2.5” Intel 750 Series drive, GIGABYTE ensures that the users can benefit from the best performance.

Rapid Onboard AORUS Storage

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

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

Intel USB 3.1 Controller

Exclusive AORUS Extreme USB 3.1 Motherboards

The ASMEDIA 2142 USB 3.1 controller utilizes 2 PCIe Gen3 lanes, offering a total of up to 16 Gb/s, which means you have extra bandwidth to take full control of the 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 ports. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.

Z270X motherboard 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.

Gigabyte Z270X-Ultra Gaming, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, U.2, M.2, 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, GbE, USB 3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great motherboard for the money I changed from a ASRock Z170 that my 6700k would only run 4.4 stable @ 1.3v. I know I didn't need a Z270 but seems daft not to.. I can run all the way up to 4.7 easily with a touch of voltage or 4.4 whilst undervolting. Far more stable as well. Only gripe I have is it runs around 5-10 c hotter @ load Thumbs up otherwise
