Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4000MHz and Beyond*
GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4000MHz 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.

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.

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!
GIGABYTE partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with GIGABYTE Motherboards. GIGABYTE has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a GIGABYTE built system.

COOLING

Powerful heatsink design
An efficient thermal cooling design to provide absolute maximum performance.

X299-WU8 cover with an additional heat sink array for dual PLX chips to ensure optimal cooling and system stability.

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.

Temperature Sensors
Different models have different number of fan pin headers and temperature sensors. Smart Fan 5 function may vary by model.

Temperature Sensors

Hybrid Fan Headers
- 9 Temperature Sensors
- 8 Fan/Water Pump Connectors
- Interoperable Fans and Sensors
- Intuitive UI for Fan Control

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.

ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp

ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio
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.

Smart Headphone AMP
Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics—preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.

LIGHTING
RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs
With X299-WU8 Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard and external LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on X299-WU8 Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With onboard options and external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
GIGABYTE Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v digital LED strips. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.
* Digital LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Digital LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.

Supports RGBW & UV Light Strips
Independently Programmable Onboard Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips
Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colors.

When using RGB/UV LED strips, users can give their systems a fluorescent glow with the use of UV reactive liquid, neon braided cables, and acrylic paint for a wicked-looking gaming PC.

No need to worry when choosing light strips as GIGABYTE motherboards support a wide variety of RGBW/-UV light strips on the market thanks to the RGB Fusion software that allows users to redefine the pin location for the R/G/B Signal.

RGBW Pin Header Support True White and RGB/UV LED Strips

RGB/UV Color
RGB/UV light strips can illuminate your PC with a fluorescent glow. With UV reactive cables, paint or liquid your PC can radiate with a luminous glow.

True White Color
RGBW light strips can produce a pure white color instead of mixing R/G/B to produce an inaccurate white.

Richer Color
With dedicated white LEDs, light strips can produce a richer and brighter color on the color scale.

RGB Calibration
Different light strips sometimes have different RGB pin definitions, RGB Fusion software can relocate each pin location for the best compatibility.

ULTRA DURABLE
Carefully Selected Components
GIGABYTE’s passive components are meticulously selected to guarantee a super stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver their maximum performance. With some of the longest service lifetimes in the industry, our server motherboards build on 30 years’ company-wide experience in motherboard design to attain the highest reliability levels.

Ultra Durable™ PCIe Armor
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.

Ultra Durable™ Memory Armor
GIGABYTE exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion/twisting and plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
