Video: GIGABYTE G1. Sniper Z87 Motherboard Awarded ‘Gamers Choice’ on

Following up on a First Look video a few weeks ago, Tiny ‘Tom’ Logan has now given our new GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87 motherboard a really good going over with a full review, and it’s great to see the board pick up both ‘Gamers Choice’ and ‘Value for Money’ awards. Check out his video below.

In fact Tom was pretty much blown away by the sheer value of the board, offering really solid performance and a pretty full feature set for a very, very competitive price point.

“For a barely believable price you're getting equally barely believable performance. You have to overclock the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 to make the most of it, but if you're willing to put a little effort in then there is a monster motherboard just waiting to be discovered and if you buy a K-series CPU you should be getting dirty in the BIOS anyways!”

GIGABYTE Sponsors UK Overclockers Meet Up in Deepest Darkest Nottinghamshire

Last weekend saw an annual winter meet up of pretty much all the top Overclockers in the UK. Attendees (many of which are virtually household names in UK OC circles) included el_gappo, K404, Scooter.Jay, topdog, borandi and Driftingforlife. Noobs and spectators also made the trip to Long Eaton Nottinghamsire where it is fair to say, a good time was had by all.
Check out the video below for some really UK-style OC banter!

As one of the event’s sponsors, it was great to see plenty of Country Club submissions being made on GIGABYTE motherboards. Here are a few you check out:
Topdog using our 990FXA-UD3 an Z77X-UD7
Scooterjay pushing his i7 4770K on the Z87X-OC

Somewhere under all that ice there lies a GIGABYTE Z87X-OC board…

OC3D Take a First Look at the GIGABYTE G1. Sniper Z87 Motherboard


Our buddy Tiny ‘Tom’ Logan managed to get his hands on our new socket 1150 gaming motherboard, the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87. Of course Tom being Tom, the first things he did was shoot a quick ‘First look’ video. As ever Tom goes through the main features, of which there are many, including our signature AMP-UP audio which includes an upgradable OP-AMP, gain switches, a Creative Sound Core3D audio processor and more.

Just to generally sum up Tom’s feelings about the board, he is totally impressed with the overall spec of the board and the more high-end features that you’re getting for your money. In a nut shell, it’s ‘wicked’ value!
