GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper M5 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Full size PCIe slots, but with reduced pins. Good power design per Sin's VRM power list. Good mix of DVI, HDMI, and DP display ports.

Cons: First boot and complete fresh install of Win7 x64, the Creative Audio showed up in the device manager. Drivers installed perfectly fine. About 1 day later, it disappeared. Ever since, no amount of reboots, changing BIOS audio settings from "enable" to "auto" to "disable", and fresh reinstalls of Win7 x64 will bring it back. I read a couple threads online that a few people seem to have had the Creative Audio die on them, potentially requiring a motherboard replacement. I contacted Gigabyte support. So it's 1 egg until this gets resolved. Once this gets resolved, it'll be back to 4 or 5 eggs.

3 out of 5 eggs Nice Case, Bad Top Panel? 06/10/2014

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl w/ USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case

Pros: Nice case overall so far. Inspected upon arrival, and everything seems solidly built with a sturdy cutouts, sturdy panels, etc. Still waiting for other parts to arrive before building though. Everything is nice except for 1 piece - the top panel (see cons).

Cons: The top panel is super floppy. I can press in on it with my 1 pinky finger, and it flexes in and out, popping back and forth. Is it supposed to be like this? The whole rest of the case is sturdy. Why skimp on the top panel? I think it might be a result of the 2 fan cut outs decreasing the strength of the panel. But given how weak it is anyways, I'm not sure I would mount a dual fan liquid radiator, fans, or anything on there.
