Product Description

Overwhelming Power.
Indisputable Supremacy.
Unrestrained Potential.

The GIGABYTE X399 enthusiast motherboard with AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processor. Do everything, do it all at the same time, and do it without sacrificing responsiveness. Render. Stream. Compile. Encode. Work or Play. Real-World Productivity or Virtual Reality Entertainment. The GIGABYTE X399 enthusiast motherboard has the power to overwhelm your most daunting workloads.

The New, Ultimate Platform for Desktop
With up to 16 cores, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper processor can command 32 threads, the most multi-processing power that has ever been unleashed on a consumer desktop. Overwhelm your workloads with 40MB of processor cache, without sacrificing efficiency thanks to the world-class IPC performance of the “Zen” architecture.

Quad-Channel DDR4 for devastating memory bandwidth, 64 lanes of incredible PCIe 3.0 connectivity, and native USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gb/s support on a chipset. With every processor multiplier-unlocked to be configured as you see fit, the Ryzen Threadripper platform is create to keep you on the bleeding edge of tomorrow.

Free NVMe RAID Support
NVMe RAID for AMD Ryzen Threadripper platform is now supported for free. By combining multiple NVMe SSDs together into a RAID 0, 1, or 10 array, it is possible to greatly enhance disk performance or data integrity. With a single GPU in the system, up to 7 NVMe SSDs array can be supported by GIGABYTE X399 motherboards.

4-Way Graphics with Premium 48 PCIe Lanes Bandwidth
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature a unique PCI Express design that utilizes 100% of all 48 lanes from the CPU when in a 4-Way or 3-Way graphics configuration providing the full bandwidth available and provide the best graphics bandwidth possible to the user.

Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Direct from CPU
GIGABYTE X399 Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s potential.

Triple M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 drives—Thermal Guard. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2 devices as it helps to reduce and dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.

Server-Class Digital Power Design
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards use an all digital CPU power design from International Rectifier which includes both 4th Generation digital PWM Controllers and industry-leading 3rd Generation PowIRstage controllers. These 100% digital controllers offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from their new AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.

IR Digital PWM & IR PowIRstage ICs
This new generation of IR digital power controllers and PowIRstage ICs feature Isense technology, which provide more precise current sensing accuracy. This helps evenly distribute the thermal loading between the PowIRstage ICs, preventing the overheating of each individual PowIRstage, resulting in longer lifespan and better reliability.

Server Level Chokes
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature Server Level Chokes.
- Server level reliability
- High current capacity
- New design reduces heat created by power loss and provides efficient power delivery to CPU VRM area.

Gold Plated Solid Power Connectors
Make Good Connection and Significantly Lower the Wires Capacity
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards feature gold plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin+4pin power connectors for offering stable and affordable power supply while CPU overloading. Gold provides superior conductivity and signal transmission than standard implementations, also providing far better reliability and stability over time by resistance to metal corrosion caused by frequent use overtime.

Armor
GIGABYTE X399 motherboards are designed with an aggressive stance, but looks are just the beginning. The armor on the GIGABYTE X399 motherboards are created to offer best-in-class performance while still staying cool.

Base Plate
GIGABYTE Motherboards are the perfect choice when starting your PC build. With an integrated base plate, GIGABYTE Motherboards give users a strong foundation to build their Gaming PC. With larger and heavier coolers, graphics cards, and even memory modules the GIGABYTE Base Plate is perfect to help support any enthusiast’s build while reducing cuts and stings from sharp areas of the motherboard.

I/O Shield Armor
With an integrated I/O shield building an GIGABYTE Gaming PC is even easier. Gone are the days of realizing that the rear I/O was forgotten or lost.

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.

Hybrid Fan Pin Headers & Temperature Sensors
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—giving you absolute mastery over your PC.

New Smart Fan 5 Software
Interoperable Sensors and Fans
Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).Fan Curve
Customize fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.
Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage scenario.
For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.

USB with Precision Digital Fuse
Utilizing a digital fuse, motherboards are able to avert against over-current damage by reacting faster, with greater precision, and avoid unexpected voltage from external devices.

Digital Fuse Design
Activates when the current reaches its trigger point, this design is much more precise than traditional fuses.

Dual Intel GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Software + Intel WiFi
Dual Intel Gigabit LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.

USB Type-C Front Panel Connector
Equipped with next generation connectivity onboard GIGABYTE X399 Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C header for USB 3.1 Gen1 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.1 drive or charging your new mobile device.

Fast USB 3.1 Gen 2 Solution
The latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 offers staggering 10Gb/s transfer speeds. 2x faster than USB 3.1 Gen 1 along with backwards compatibility with existing USB devices.

RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs
With GIGABYTE X399 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 GIGABYTE X399 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 X399 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.

RGB Fusion
Multi-light zones are equipped with high brightness RGB LEDs, namely the Accent LED PCH Overlay, Digital LED strips and RGBW LED strips. When it’s all set and done, your system will shine like never before.

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.
