Gigabyte's 200 series motherboards boast the most advanced LED system in the market today. With more customizability than ever and a convenient and intuitive UI thanks to the RGB Fusion App, you'll have a blast making your Gigabyte your own. LED enthusiasts now have even more options with the ability to customize multiple zones independently. For a more functional use, the bright and vibrant LEDs can be configured to display the PC's temperature or load. For even more LED goodness RGBW strips are now supported for more true and vibrant whites.

Key Features
  • Swappable Overlay for Accent LED
  • Independently programmable onboard pin header for RGBW LED strips
  • Smart Fan 5
  • High-end audio capacitors
  • Killer E2500 gaming network
  • Turbo B-Clock
  • Diagnostic LEDs
  • Ultra Durable memory armor
  • Anti-sulfur resistor design
Swappable Overlay for Accent LED
Gigabyte brings even more color and life to your system with an Accent LED Overlay. This overlay complements the RGB Fusion technology in Gigabyte Motherboards adding more flare and style to your gaming machine. With the swappable overlay users can utilize different patterns and designs to make their system their own.
Independently programmable onboard pin header for RGBW LED strips
Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB or RGBW light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. With RGBW light strips that have a dedicated white color LED, you can have brighter and more vibrant colors.
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.
High-end audio capacitors
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.
Killer E2500 gaming network
Killer E2500 is a high-performance, adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers better online gaming and media performance compared to standard solutions.
Turbo B-Clock
Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the Gigabyte 200 series motherboards enable overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice. With the linear adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 90MHz to 500MHz are now possible, so that overclockers are not limited to the 5% ranges of traditional straps.
Diagnostic LEDs
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.
Ultra Durable memory armor
Gigabyte's exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion and twist, plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
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.
