My System Specs


If I remember correctly, the reviews for Gigabyte's previous runs at the onboard 'Killer2100' didn't come back all that fantastic. And I'm leary of any onboard sound that hypes itself as more than onboard. Also, glancing at the layout, I only see 2 PWM fan connecters and only 4 Intel controlled SATA ports. (2x SATA2, 2x SATA3) Topped off by 2x PCI legacy slots being a serious waste of real estate on a gamers MB. Perhaps Gigabyte should have worried less about the frills and more about the fundamentals.
