GIGABYTE G1.Sniper LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: board works but not as good as it should

Cons: problems with the board layout, if you have 2 ati HD6900 gpus the gpus must go in slots 1 pcie x16 and slot 5 pcie x8 this is for ventatilation, once board install you are unable to instal any of the edge connectors because the GPUs overlap the headers. The next problem I have is that the sound using 7.1 surround has severe audio clipping. Also it uses a creative CA20K2 audio chip but the creative auto detect software cannot find a creative device.

Other Thoughts: more thought should have went int the layout

1 out of 5 eggs poorly designed motherboard 12/10/2011

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1.Sniper LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: the only pro is that the board works but it not as high end gamers board.

Cons: 1.)design problem the PCIe slots are X16,X16,X8 and if your have 2 HD6900 series board you must run one in the x16 and one in the x8 for ventilation.
2.) when using 2 HD6900 board as above the one board covers the connectors alone the edge of the board so you can't use them.
3.) the sound porition is the worst there is very bad audio clipping when using 7.1 surround sound. Also the creative labs auto update does'nt work on the sound drivers.
4.) The sysem temp 1 probe is buried under the first video card so it always reads high.
5.) Cost to high for the number of problems

Other Thoughts: This would be an excellent board if all these problems were resolved, but that means a redesign of the board. Are ther any motherboard manufacturer that take all aspects of the system in mind when they design a motherboard.

XFX Radeon HD 6990 HD-699A-ENF9 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: board works great fast until it died

Cons: fan control poor made board overheat and die

Other Thoughts: need better fans maybe even dual fans run them at a linear curve equal to the temp. While the board worked it was all they talked about, but, if it dies it not worth anything
