    GIGABYTE Active OC Tuner

    With GIGABYTE's exclusive Active OC Tuner BIOS function, CPU* can work with AMD P.B.O. for gaming and other light workload applications with the highest CPU boost clock, but when the applications require all CPU cores horsepower, it automatically switches to the Manual OC mode where it can utilize the high frequency for all the CPU cores.

    Active OC Tuner with Auto Switching

    AMD P.B.O. mode for fewer cores with the highest CPU boost clock, better for gaming.

    Manual OC mode for all cores with high CPU clock, better for content creation.


    GIGABYTE Motherboards' unparalleled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming performance.

    Fins-Array III with NanoCarbon Coating

    Fins-Array III upgraded thermal performance by using new extended Irregular fins and louvered stacked-fins design which not only increases surface area by incredible 10X compared to traditional heatsinks but also improves thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.

    8mm Mega-Heatpipe

    8mm Mega-Heatpipe has 30% wider diameter than traditional 6mm heatpipe and is able to transfer more heat under same time period.

    M.2 Thermal Guard III

    M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 9X optimized heat dissipation surface and double-sided M.2 heatsinks to prevent throttling and bottlenecks on high-speed/ large capacity of PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs.

    8-Layer & 2X Copper PCB

    2X COPPER PCBs design effectively lower the component temperature by its high thermal conductivity and low impedance.

    Fins-Array III

    GIGABYTE new generation Fins-Array III delivers the ultimate thermal performance by using Extended Irregular fins to fill all available space and vastly increases surface area. A piece of Fins-Array III heatsink surface area is larger than 2 full size ATX motherboard PCB, therefore it tremendously boost thermal efficiency and heat exchange performance.

    Fins-Array III

    Single Fin surface area: 1678mm2 Extended Irregular fins design to increase more surface area 10X total heatsink surface area

    Nanocarbon Coated Fin Array Heatsink

    As CPUs get more powerful, VRM modules get hotter under ultra high performance. Being the first adopters among industry using NanoCarbon as coating material to enhance thermal radiation speed up heat dissipation. Nanocarbon is coated onto the heatsink through electrostatic adhesion. The coating material covers the entire finned heatsink with 200μm in thickness. In that way, heat is dissipated more quickly. The tests show 10% cooler with the NanoCarbon coating.

    M.2 Thermal Guard III

    M.2 Thermal Guard III constructed with 9X optimized heat dissipation surface to prevent throttling and bottleneck that high-speed/ large capacity of PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs may cause, especially under heavy workload.The special design of heatsink grooves in the direction of CPU further enhances the in-chassis air flow and optimizes the heat convection efficiency.

    Throttle-free Performance

    The result is based on internal lab test for reference only, real performance may vary. Test conditions are under open case, 25˚C ambient temperature, no airflow, AIO Cooler and the latest Gen5 SSD running IO meter for two hours.

    * The appearance design of M.2 Thermal III may affect the CPU tower cooler installation; therefore, it is recommend to use CPU liquid cooler.
