Driver MOSFETs - Integration of VRM Components

A traditional Voltage Regulator Module (VRM) consists of a Choke, Capacitors, MOSFETs and a Driver IC. By incorporating the MOSFETs and driver IC in accordance with the Driver-MOSFET specification, we can achieve higher power transfer and increased efficiency at higher switching frequencies to satisfy the growing power requirements of today's processors. Driver-MOSFETs also help to reduce VRM real estate requirements in the CPU zone.

108dB Signal-to-Noise ratio playback

GIGABYTE motherboards feature higher capability audio solution with 108dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback quality to deliver high-performance, multi- channel HD audio. SNR is a comparison of the amount of signal to the amount of noise such as hiss present in the signal (expressed in Decibels). A higher SNR equals a better audio experience. For example, 108dB, is a high audio specification, as this means the audio signal is 108dB higher than the level of the noise.

Overall great MOBO 6/8/2017 1:56:10 PM

Pros: -Great at customization
-Plenty of ports and room for upgrades
-Handles OCing quite well

Cons: -The only complaint I have is one of the PCI Express 2.0 x16 isn't functioning any more. Normal use on it, I had a GTX 780TI sitting on that port for 2 years. Never over clocked the GPU either.
