Packaging and Accessories



The G1.Sniper 2 uses a similar design to the other boards in the G1-Killer gaming series boards. The packaging has a military feel and is designed to look like an ammo box, rust spots and all. Highlighted on its front is the G1-Killer series logo, X-Fi audio and the Killer E2100 NIC which the back side has an in depth features explanation.


Typical to most recent motherboards, the G1.Sniper 2 has a matte box inside the thinner cardboard box. This is likely to provide flexibility and cut down on print costs. Opening the top cover we see the board is in its own compartment on the top and beneath we find the accessories. In addition to typical accessories, the G1.Sniper 2 comes with a poster and full set of stickers.


A few accessories of interest are the Front Access Control Panel and a branded I/O panel cover. The Front Access Control Panel allows quick access to a pair of USB 3.0 ports and Power eSATA. The Front Access Control Panel also features a Quick Boost button that allows users to instantly overclock their system with the press of a button.
