The GIGABYTE APP Center provides a centralized location for all the GIGABYTE Windows-based utilities. The @BIOS applet can be used to backup and update the board BIOS. THe Ambient LED applet is used to adjust the appearance of the audio separator line LEDs with options for always on, pulsing, and a breathing type pattern. The EasyTune utility can be used to configure board settings, including bus speeds and voltages. The System Information Viewer applet displays board component information, monitored device information, and provides an interface for automated or manual fan configuration. The EZ Setup applet houses driver configuration utilities. The Game Controller applet allows the user to create customized keyboard and mouse hot keys and macros for use in-game. Fast Boot provides the user a GUI interface to modify the BIOS Fast Boot setting and the OS-based power loss setting. The Cloud Station app allows the for interaction with and control of the base system from a remote device via a wireless connection. The Smart TimeLock applet allows the user to define computer and Internet usage time for a user via its rules-based interface. The Smart Recovery 2 applet controls time-based system backups with the ability to create a new partition image file one time per hour. The ON/OFF Charge applet allows for configuration of USB port charging characteristics for attached devices. The USB Blocker applet is a security mechanism allowing you to block specific types of USB devices and access. The V-Tuner applet allows for user configuration of graphics card related core speed, voltages, and fan speeds for supported graphics adapters.
EasyTune with System Information Viewer
The GIGABYTE EasyTune and System Information Viewer applets provide access to board information concerning the CPU, memory, and attached devices. Additionally, board settings, including voltage, bus speeds, ratios, memory timings, and fan operation can be manually manipulated through the easy to use GUI interface. Speed presets are also available for automated overclocking using the applet. Note that when you invoke EasyTune, the System Information Viewer automatically runs in its minimized state via the Hardware Monitor window. The System Information Viewer window becomes visible by clicking the left arrow icon from the Hardware Monitor window.

The Ambient LED applet provides the user with settings for controlling the audio PCB separator line LED and rear panel LED illumination. The LED embedded along the audio PCB can be disabled entirely, or set for operation in always on mode (Still Mode), Beat Mode that attempts to match the LEDs pulsing to active music, or Pulse mode which gives the LED a regular pulsing appearance. The rear panel shield LED can be enabled or disabled only.
The Game Controller applet provides the user with macro record capabilities and settings for customizing mouse pointer appearance as well as mouse and keyboard responsive and mouse polling rate. All settings and macros can be easily tied to user defined hot key settings as well.

The V-Tuner applet provides access to real-time monitoring information for the sysetm graphics card's core speed, memory speed, and GPU utilization. Various card settings, including core and memory speeds, as well as card voltages, can be manually manipulated through the sliders in the GUI interface. Additionally, the applet provides the user with the ability to customize up to for settings profiles.
Killer Network Manager
The Killer Network Manager applet provides the user with settings and monitoring tools for configuring the on-board Killer NIC adapter for optimal use. The Performance and Killer Ethernet screens show network statistics for the network adapter, while the Applications and Network pages give the user control over adapter operation and application based traffic prioritization.
