Super Shield - Locked and Loaded Heatpipe and 5 Smart Fan Connectors The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2 features the distinctive heatpipe design that it is as deadly to heat as it looks. By effectively spreading the heat from the critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU VRM zone and quickly dissipating it, the G1.Sniper 2 remains cool, even when the battle heats up. Modeled after common firearms issued to soldiers deployed to a warzone, including pistol, rifle and ammo magazine, the Locked and Loaded heatpipe design utilizes a unique fluting technology similar to a rifle barrel fluting, which allows for maximum heat dispersion. Further helping to eliminate heat are the 5 strategically placed Smart Fan pin headers which allow for more precise control of system and CPU fans. Equipped with their own individual thermal sensors, the Smart Fans can be easily controlled via GIGABYTE's EasyTune 6 utility as well as in the BIOS.
