Once the motherboards are fully stress tested, they are
ready to be packaged and shipped. Gigabyte, like most manufacturers, orders their motherboard
boxes from a separate manufacturer and sends them off to be printed.
Once the printed boxes are received, they pass through a machine which
folds and shapes them correctly, then it's down another manual assembly line
where workers place each tested motherboard into its box.
In go any promotional stickers, the cardboard divider, antistatic foam, software
and other peripherals, then they are sent off to be packed into
shipping boxes. The box packing machines are automated, wrapping packing plastic strips around
each box faster than the human eye can see!

We hope you've enjoyed PCSTATS visual tour of
how motherboards are made, and have a better idea of how much work goes
into every component of your system!
Our thanks goes out to Gigabyte
for the unprecedented access they gave PCSTATS to photograph every square inch
of the Nan-Ping factory in Taipei, Taiwan.
