Gigabyte’s App Center service pop-up gives easy access to many of the firm's motherboard-specific applications. Most unusual (and potentially valuable) of these, USB Blocker allows users to set access controls for various USB ports to block access from unwanted devices, such as someone else’s infected thumb drive.

Gigabyte @BIOS provides firmware update checks and its FaceWizard utility for boot-screen customization.

Gigabyte Live Update checks servers for the latest version of the motherboard’s drivers and utilities.
