love this board

Donta1979, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: Great board, Love mine just wish they had a used gigabyte g1.sniper or gorilla for the price I got this board. Really a nice premium x58 board. Almost a year later and it still runs great, just remember if you get it as a replacement its XL-ATX so you will need a case/motherboard tray that supports it.

Can come prettty close to getting a perfect score on windows PC assessment

unfairlysuspendedlostcash, Ebay
23 January 2013
  • Summary: The Gigabyte Technology G1.Assassin rev. 1.0 (GA-G1.ASSASSIN) Motherboard is a solid board capable of outstanding computing. Greatest strength: fast speeds, reliable technology, excellent look, great expandability. My PCI slots are getting at least 5GB/s. Easily overclocked. Easy to set up due to large size. Durable. Cons: large size (XL-ATX), needs more USB ports for a board of this size. Bios could use some upgraded visuals. Perhaps is improved in updates.

Awesome machine

KUZYA, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: My previous intel would suffer during heavy applications and with it cripple the cpu. Once I installed this board with 16 gigs, plus V8 CPU cooler, my system doesn't go above 50C and 30% ram. Good motherboard, just make sure that's trully the monster you need, cause there are AMD options out there that are much chipper.

Spectacular!

frrrosty, Amazon
7 May 2012
  • Summary: Best deal ever. The price was the best on the internet, and then I got an $80 rebate on top of that. At that price, I should have bought two, kept one and sell the other!

Best gaming motherboard in a long time

Jason Braden "mgrateful", Amazon
7 January 2012
  • Summary: This motherboard is the best gaming motherboard on the x58 platform. Gigabyte delivers in every conceivable way in making this motherboard do exactly what it was made for. AS long as you are buying this board for the right reasons and you actually read the specifications you should be fine.

BIOS Flash

Texman, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: Saw the other review. BIOS flash is no guarntee to fix. I have performed flash updates on multiple hardware manufacturers products. When R&D let's a flash update out your survival rate on hardware is drastically lower. Listing the failures I've seen on hardware wouldn't be fair listing them as most were done on used equipment 6 months or older and when the flashes were performed failures where within 2-3 months with no guarantee it was the flash.

Beware BIOS has issue detecting IDE Drives

William Bowen Sr., Amazon
1 December 2011
  • Summary: Lots of good features. This motherboard has a major issue with not detecting IDE drives during boot up. It takes at five minutes for it to boot up. Gigabyte has a BIOS flash that they say fixes the problem but flashing a motherboard is dangerous and you can toast it if something goes wrong while doing it. Do your own research and Google it for yourself. A manufacture that cannot simple test a motherboard before putting it on the market speaks for itself.

Nice motherboard, but check your case!

Maiken2051, Amazon
23 April 2011
  • Summary: This motherboard has tons of features, but make sure you check your case before purchasing it. The G1.Assassin is a nonstandard size and would not fit in my standard Full ATX case. Gigabyte has a list of compatible cases on its web site.
