 +====== 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)
 +
 +{{:general:gigabyte_appcenter_sysinfo.png?200|}}
 +
 +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.
