 +====== Configuration Notes ======
 +To get[[https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/wsl2-index|WSL 2]] to work, I had to go into Bios (Del key during boot? I forgot) and enable Virtualization. For me, it was Tweaker → SVM Mode.
 +To configure the fans' rates, run GIGABYTE -> Launch APP Center -> SIV (System Information Viewer)
 +I force the CPU fan to remain at one constant rate until it gets too hot.
 +All the other fans I have on a curve.
 +====== Things To Do ======
 +Check that the video card supports the resolution of the monitor I have. Check which video connections it has.
 +  * Ports: DisplayPort and HDMI
 +  * Maximum Resolution: 7680x4320
