The Box and Goodies -
The box for the G1.Sniper M3 is the now familiar “ammo can” style with some extra imagery to go with it. The flaming skull and dagger are meant to look like Special Forces insignia. Again all of this is meant to give the feeling that this board will be the perfect thing for your gaming needs. The front of the box shows off some of the real features that should make this a great board for gaming. Here you have the SoundCore 3d from Creative along SLI, Crossfire and Gigabyte’s 3D power and BIOS.
The back dives into these features and more by breaking them out into the four categories we talked about above. We were a little surprised to see that Gigabyte did not make the specification listing a little larger ad cut back on the marketing hype. Usually people looking at this level of board want more fact than marketing.
The military theme does not stop at the outer box though. Inside is another box with the same pixel pattern camouflage. Under the lid of this board are all of the goodies that Gigabyte has thrown in for you. As you can see it is not a bad haul although we were more than little surprised to only find an SLI bridge.
