Fully Covered Thermal Design
High coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
M.2 Thermal Guard
The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
2X Copper PCB
2X Copper PCBs design effectively lower the component temperature by its high thermal conductivity and low impedance.
Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink
M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
3% Cooler by implementing 2x copper PCB Design
By adopting 2x copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to it's high thermal conductivity and lower impedance.

Dual Curve Mode
Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario
Fan can stop completely below users' specified temperature point
Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI
1 - Improve fan curve UI - We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.
2 - Slope/Stair dual graph mode - Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval.
3 - Manual Input - For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.
4 - EZ Tuning - Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.
5 - Fan curve profile - Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS.
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.
