Turbojet Technology – Unrivalled Thermal Solution

Gigabyte 1 Gigabyte GA G1975X Board

Situated around the hottest components on a motherboard, GIGABYTE proprietary
Turbojet Technology helps to efficiently remove heat generated by the CPU, north
bridge and memory, and is designed to cope with abnormally tough thermal
conditions. This is achieved by directing airflow over and away from heat
generating components; two fans are dedicated to sucking warm air out the back
of the system while another two drive air over the system memory, an area on the
motherboard that is often neglected by cooling systems.

Supports Two PCI Express VGA Cards Simultaneously

Featuring the Intel® 975X Express chipset, the GA-G1975X comes with dual
PCI-E graphics slots supporting two 8-lane PCI Express links for multi-view
output that ensures maximum graphics performance for next generation GPUs and
games. With growing support for dual GPUs amongst PC game developers, the
GA-G1975X affords gamers the best possible visual experience for current and
future games.

Creative Sound Blaster with DTS Support
The GA-G1975X integrated hardware audio controller from Creative Sound Blaster
Live 24-bit, performing heart pounding 7.1 channel surround effects delivers the
most natural and engrossing multimedia entertainment experience possible for
games, DVD movies, music and TV. With DTS enabled functions, DTS ES and DTS
Neo:6, the GIGABYTE GA-G1975X brings you the ultimate entertainment experience
to the PC world.

C.R.S. (CMOS Reload Switch)
GIGABYTE cleverly included a C.R.S (CMOS Reload Switch) that provides convenient
CMOS default settings retrieval and auto system reboot. A smart and
user-friendly tool for overclockers, it allows the user to reload the CMOS
default settings when the system is unable to boot up.

Flexible PCI-e x4 Expansion Slot
The GIGABYTE GA-G1975X provides a flexible expansion interface for peripheral
devices through PCI-e x4 or x1 slots. In addition, the board provides an
interface for various graphics cards and is able to support up to 4 graphics
cards simultaneously with 2 PCI-e x 16 slots.
