A Fully Comprehensive Cooling Solution
INTELLIGENT FAN CONTROL DESIGN
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its 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 intuitive user interface. 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.
4 PWM/DC Fan Headers
6 Internal Temperature Sensors
Superior Support for DDR4 XMP
HYBRID CORES OPTIMIZATION
With new Intel Hybrid technology, GIGABYTE exclusively creates two new "CPU Upgrade" in BIOS profiles to meet different users' scenarios by adjusting P-Core and E-Core activation and voltage policy.
UP TO 5333MHZ AND BEYOND*
GIGABYTE is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their GIGABYTE motherboard.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.
2 X PCIE 4.0 M.2 SLOTS / PCIE 4.0 DESIGN
GIGABYTE B660 Motherboards are ready to work with the PCIe 4.0 devices which are expected to experience twice bandwidth than the current PCIe 3.0 devices. To reach the high speed and maintain good signal integrity, GIGABYTE R&D uses the low impedance PCB to provide the maximum performance. Dual PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 Connectors with Thermal Guard.

Durability for Years to Come
With GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus, you don't need to install the CPU, memory and graphics card nor enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file (rename to gigabyte.bin) on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button and you're good to go!
Plug the 24-pin & 8-pin power supply cable into the motherboard.
Download and unzip the motherboard's compressed BIOS file and rename to "gigabyte.bin", save to a USB flash-drive, and plug it into the Q-Flash USB port.
Press the Q-Flash button, and the motherboard will start updating the BIOS automatically.
Take Control of your Motherboard
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. * Photos are for reference only.
