Gigabyte G1.Sniper Motherboard Review  - PCSTATS.com Gigabyte G1.Sniper Motherboard Review
Wed, Jul 13 2011 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Canada turns 144. July 4, 2011: USA turns 235. But what about me? July 3, 2011: That's one year and month anniversary since I have started here at APH Networks. It is also exactly five years and one month ago on this day, that I was given a special present after fully completing karate. What else is special about this day? Another computer here at APH Networks is successfully benchmarked by yours truly. Today, I have been asked to review a blissfully challenging and intriguing product, and this is no other than Gigabyte's high-end desktop gaming motherboard known as the G1.Sniper. "Sniper? Where!?" Incorporating Intel's X58 chipset designed mainly for the first generation Core i7 line of processors, the G1.Sniper is branded under Gigabyte's G1-Killer series, featuring a dedicated high-end X-Fi audio chip from Creative, heatsinks designed to look like the rails seen on rifles, and many other hardware and aesthetically pleasing features. The one we are reviewing today is the "midrange" unit priced about $430 at press time. Before you get too excited, let me briefly inform you that this is a "one shot, one kill" deal. You snooze, you lose; you skip benchmarking results, you miss out on seeing how well this motherboard performs. Or should I really be asking: Are the G1.Sniper's features really worth its $430 price tag? You will have to stay alert to find out!

You do software updates to get the most from favourite programs right? Updating a motherboard BIOS can in a timely manner is also critical. The guide to Flashing a Motherboard BIOS spells out the often complicated steps in plain english. PCSTATS Tips
