Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 Motherboard

APH Networks
28 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The highest raw overclock I was able to obtain with my Intel Core i7-4770K was marginally under 4.50 GHz (4.489 GHz to be exact, if you are really that picky) with the multiplier set at 45x. It took me quite a bit of time to manually get these results, so some variance may cause instability. With those set, I ran Prime95 on my Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 on all four cores for an extended period of time to ensure stability.

Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z87 Motherboard

17 February 2014
  • Summary: When hardware enthusiasts look to build a gaming rig they often look at the upper high-end for their product selection.  This isn't because they need it or will use all the features but, because those systems offer the most in terms of power and expandability it is the logical choice.  In this review we looked at the Gigabyte G1 Killer Sniper Z87 gaming motherboard which is not the top of the line but rather a reasonable version that anyone could buy.
  • Pros: Onboard Hardware Audio Solution, Excellent Color Scheme, Standard ATX Motherboard Size, Thicker and Stronger PCB, Matte Black Finish, Improved UEFI Support, Enhanced Overclocking
  • Cons: Would like to have more than four fan headers, No DVI on I/O panel

Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z87 (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review

7 January 2014
  • Conclusion: As someone who has observed trends in high-end Intel motherboards over the successive generations, P67/Z68 to Z77 to Z87, it is easy to see that standard is rising rapidly. In just a few years almost all vendors are producing fantastic motherboards and now that standard is rising again. However, more importantly – what the G1 Sniper Z87 shows – is that the standard can still rise while the price is kept at affordable levels.
  • Pros: Excellent high quality audio with class-leading customisation options, A visually and functionally stunning dual UEFI BIOS, Onboard BIOS switches and Power/Reset/Clear CMOS buttons, Clean aesthetics and layout, Very easy to overclock with, Killer E2200 networking chip, 3 year warranty, Extremely competitive pricing
  • Cons: Limited fan header options, Six SATA ports may be limiting factor for some people

Gigabyte G1. Sniper Z87 Motherboard Review

  • Conclusion: The Gigabyte G1. Sniper Z87 proved to be a lot more than I was expecting, especially when we get to how much it costs. Currently, it can be had for $169.99 at Newegg , which is a grand bargain in my opinion. Sure, you don’t get things like extra third party SATA controllers, built-in WiFi, and a few other bells and whistles; but you also don’t get the $300 to $400 price tag either.

  • Excerpt: When Intel launched their Haswell range of CPUs with the release of the socket 1150 based Core i7-4770K major motherboard manufacturers were able to release a wide range of new boards to support the new platform. One of those boards was from Gigabyte, the G1.Sniper 5 , and we found it to be an excellent high end board.

12 April 2014
  • Summary: Nos hemos llevado varias sorpresas, todas ellas agradables con los nuevos controladores gráficos de Intel, una de las más relevantes es que ha desaparecido el bug que lastraba el rendimiento de todo el equipo en varias configuraciones. Pero también vemos que ahora el test OpenGL de Cinebench R15 ya funciona correctamente y no da mensaje de error, así que lentamente Intel va poniendo las cosas en su sitio.
  • Pros: Utiliza la revisión C2 del chipset Intel Z87, Impresionante estética, Buen sistema de sonido integrado, Buena tarjeta de red integrada, Precio razonable
  • Cons: Han rebajado calidad del PCB pasando de Ultra Durable 5 a UD4 Plus, Las BIOS Gigabyte en modo clásico siguen con poca fluidez con el ratón

  • Excerpt: Рынок диктует свои законы, и производители материнских плат во второй, обновлённой волне продуктов для платформы Intel LGA1150 стали выпускать особые, прежде кажущиеся неуместными, изделия. Особый интерес для них составляет аудитория геймеров, ведь вполне очевидно, именно они являются наиболее заинтересованными лицами в области обновления собственного аппаратного обеспечения.
