Lights and Software
When you power on the Gigabyte AB350-Gaming 3 you’ll notice some lights turn on. Along the edge of the motherboard you have two different lighting sections that light up the acrylic strip.
The PCB separation for the audio solution also has RGB lighting on it. Both of these sections are red by default, but can be changed in the BIOS or with Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion software.
In the RGB Fusion software there is a large slider on the top of the application window that allows you to turn the LEDs completely off on the board. There are three main tabs in the software: Basic, Advanced, and Intelligent. Basic applies a mode to all of the LEDs on the board. The sections you have here are Pulse, Music, Color Cycle, Static, Flash, Random, Wave, Double Flash, and DEMO.
Moving over to the advanced tab here is where you can program each LED section individually. There is a layout of the board and you simply select the LED section you want to program. Then you can set a mode, and with each mode another panel will open up with a color selection, speed, and brightness. You’ll notice a Peripheral devices section which will allow you to use RGB fusion on different devices like RGB memory, graphics cards and more. There is also the ability to save settings to three different profiles.
Finally there is the Intelligent tab where you can have the LEDs react to different things going on inside your PC like CPU Temperature, CPU Usage, CPU Fan speed, LAN Speed, System Temperature, and even set the LEDs on a schedule.
