Windows settings tab

Third Party Software tab

The GIGABYTE APP Center provides a centralized location for all the GIGABYTE Windows-based utilities. The interface splits apps across three tabs – GIGABYTE APPs, Windows settings, and Third-Party Software. The GIGABYTE APPs tab houses all GIGABYTE developed applets (discussed below). The Windows settings tab houses Windows Admin and Control Panel / Settings applets. The Third-Party Software tab houses non-GIGABYTE applets, like the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility applet. The @BIOS applet can be used to backup and update the board BIOS. The EasyTune utility can be used to configure board settings, including bus speeds and voltages. The System Information Viewer (SIV) applet displays board component information, monitored device information, and provides an interface for automated or manual fan configuration. Fast Boot provides the user a GUI interface to modify the BIOS Fast Boot setting and the OS-based power loss setting. The Smart Keyboard applet allows the user to create customized keyboard and mouse hot keys and macros. 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 Backup applet controls time-based system backups with the ability to create a new partition image file one time per hour. The USB Blocker applet is a security mechanism allowing you to block specific types of USB devices and access. The RGB Fusion applet allows for user configuration of the color and operating mode of the board integrated LEDs and LEDs connected to the RGB 12V header. The Auto Green applet gives user control over the board's power saving features.


The GIGABYTE EasyTune applet provides access to 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. The applet provides a hot key interface to bind up to two user configured overclocking profiles to multi-key settings.

System Information Viewer

The GIGABYTE System Information Viewer applet provides access to board information concerning the CPU, memory, and attached devices. The System Information Viewer window becomes visible by clicking the left arrow icon from the Hardware Monitor window. The applet also provides access to a recorder interface to record values of monitored items over time. You can view the monitored items via a graph interface. Additionally, fans attached to the integrated headers can be configured using pre-determined op-modes or manually via the SmartFan 5 Advanced tab.

RGB Fusion

The RGB Fusion applet controls the active state of the RGB LEDs embedded in to the board as well as LED strips connected to the board's RGB LED 12V header and supported devices installed into the system (like memory and video card LEDs). The controlled LEDs can be configured for any desired color using the color picker control and to operate in a variety of modes including static, pulse, flash, double flash, color cycle, music, random, game, or off. Clicking on one of the device icons opens to the details page, allowing for device independent or even zone independent configuration of the device LEDs.

The GIGABYTE 3D OSD applet provides an in-game interface for real-time viewing of system performance, including FPS, CPU speed, system temperature, etc. The interface can be customized to show in several color styles and screen locations, as well as customized as to what system data is shown tracking. The applet also provides hotkey functionality to quickly show and dismiss the overlay as well as Profile support to load and save configured settings.

Game Boost

The AORUS Game Boost applet attempts to optimize system performance by terminating unnecessary applications to free up memory and CPU cycles prior to starting a gaming session. The Revert function restores any shutdown processes when invoked.

Smart HUD

The AORUS Smart HUD applet allows for in game viewing of video streams. The position, resolution, and transparency of the streaming window can be configured so that the video does not detract from game play.

Intel Extreme Tuning Utility

The Intel Extreme Tuning Utility app provides board and subsystem level information about the CPU and memory speeds, allowing for both automated and manual based overclocking of the board. Additionally, multiple stress tests are integrated into the application for settings testing as well as area to save and retrieve settings profiles.
