Aimed at professional gamers, the GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper mobo is packed with everything needed for building an uncompromising, high-performance gaming rig. It's based on the latest Intel Z87 chipset, and features a set of new and improved features to take full advantage the Intel 4th Gen Core processor in an LGA 1150 package. For the first time in the industry, this mobo allows you to change the onboard operational amplifier to customize and optimize your listening experience. And with loaded dual networking, maxed out multi-card gaming support, advanced cooling, and looks that could kill, the GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboard is the ultimate choice for serious PC gamers.
Dual Silent Fan/Water Thermal Design The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 motherboard features an extreme heatsink design for the PWM area that allows users to employ both passive, active and water cooling setups. A stylish hollow body heatsink, fitted with a silent integrated fan, ensures superb heat dissipation during extreme performance and overclocked PC gaming configurations. Tube connectors at each end of the heatsink provide easy integration with any water-cooled system. These technologies help combat high temperatures by effectively removing heat from critical areas of the motherboard (such as the CPU VRM zone), allowing it to remain cool, even when the battle heats up.
GIGABYTE AMP-UP Audio GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards are the world's first to feature an onboard OP-AMP socket, allowing enthusiasts to swap out the motherboard's onboard operational amplifier (OP-AMP) and explore personal audio preferences using a range of nuanced OP-AMPs. GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards feature an amplifier upgrade kit that includes a pair of specialized Operational Amplifiers and an IC Extractor. Additional amplifiers can be purchased separately to further expand audio capabilities.
GIGABYTE Exclusive Ultra Durable Technologies GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. With ultra-low ESR – no matter how high the CPU loading – these capacitors come in customized jet black exclusively on GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards. ("Rated for an unprecedented 10,000 hours of intensive operation at an incredible 105°C" – Nippon Chemi-Con)
Gold-Plated CPU Socket GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards come equipped with a gold-plated CPU socket. Enthusiasts can enjoy absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU socket over time, without having any concerns about corroded pins and bad contacts.
2x Copper PCB GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components. It handles greater-than-normal power loads and removes heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.
Extreme Multi-GPU Configurations Featuring the latest PCIe Gen 3.0 support, the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 motherboard is built to handle up to four discrete graphics cards, delivering the absolute maximum framerates at the very highest screen resolutions. The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 supports both 4-Way Crossfire and 4-Way SLI, allowing gamers to see more clearly, aim better, and experience immersive 3D games more realistically than ever before.
