Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintains their performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via the intuitive user interface.
- Headers & Sensors
- 4 PWM/DC Fan Headers
- 6 Internal Temperature Sensors
- Cooling Features
- High Current Support
- Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water cooling Pump, and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection
- Precision Control
- Up to 7 temperature/fan speed control points for the precise fan curve
- Dual Curve Mode
- Slope/Stair dual-mode for different user scenario
- Fan Stop
- The fan can stop completely below users specified temperature point
|Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI
Improve fan curve UI
Slope/Stair dual graph mode
- We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.
- Fan curves can be quickly switched with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenarios. The slope is a traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, the fan keeps at the same speed between specified temperature intervals.
- For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.
Fan curve profile
- Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.
- 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.
Dual PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 Connectors
GIGABYTE Ultra Durable Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their Systems’ potential.
RGB FUSION 2.0
With B560 Motherboard, RGB Fusion 2.0 is even better with Addressable LEDs. RGB Fusion 2.0 offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 on B560 Series Motherboards are now upgraded with Addressable LED support. With external Addressable LED strips, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
With B560 Motherboard will support either 5v or 12v Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion 2.0 with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.
Solid Pin Power Connectors
B560 motherboards feature solid plated ATX 12V 8pin power connectors to offer a stable power supply during CPU overloading.
Solid Pin Power connector advantages
- Larger contact area for electricity
- More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
- Ultra-durable and longer lifespan
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.
