The color RED is synonymous to GAMING in the motherboard industry, same here the Gigabyte’s flagship X99 model is RED – preparing you for the Chinese New Year!
Here’s the box for the GA-X99-Gaming G1 WIFI.
The packaged contents are amazing, they’ve included multiple multi-graphic card connectors from 2-card SLI up to 4-card SLI. Impressive indeed.
The board itself carries Gigabyte’s signature red theme as seen on many of their GAMING series board.
The CPU12V connection is hidden right behind the heatsink.
What I like about this board is that it comes with a debug LED, not forgetting the other buttons for operational purpose. It’s not placed at the most convenient of location though but my guses is that it’s placed there because it’s one location that’s not affected if you decide to have 4 cards on the system.
The board comes with 1 x SATA Express connector and 10 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors – plenty of ports for your storage needs.
And what’s more impressive is that the heatsink comes with LED, pretty cool.
Get this – the LED isn’t just lit but it’s actually customizable and it works with the Ambient LED found on the board that’s controlled via software.
