Dual Silent Fan/Water Thermal Design

The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 motherboard features an extreme heatsink design for the PWM area that allows users to employ both passive, active and water cooling setups. A stylish hollow body heatsink fitted with a silent integrated fan ensures superb heat dissipation during extreme performance and overclocked PC gaming configurations.

Water Cooling-Ready

Tube connectors at each end of the heatsink provide easy integration with any water cooled system. These technologies help combat high temperatures by effectively removing heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU VRM zone, allowing it to remain cool, even when the battle heats up.


GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards feature OPT fan support, an additional CPU fan pin header that can be used to connect a water pump and configured for continuous full speed operation. The OPT Fan is also useful for high performance coolers employing two fans.

9 Fan Connectors

Further helping to eliminate heat are the 9 strategically placed fan pin headers which allow for more precise control of system and CPU fan speeds. Equipped with their own individual thermal sensors, 7 of the fan headers allow for complete control within BIOS and the GIGABYTE EasyTune™ utility.

Extreme Multi-GPU Configurations

Featuring the latest PCIe Gen 3.0 support, the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 motherboard is built to handle up to 4 discrete graphics cards, delivering the absolute maximum frame rates at the very highest screen resolutions. The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 supports both 4-Way Crossfire™ and 4-Way SLI™, allowing gamers to see more clearly, aim better, and experience immersive 3D games more realistically than ever before.
