GIGABYTE G1.Killer Sniper 5 Retail Packaging

From a personal stand point, I prefer packaging that focus’s on the product and not some flashy packaging that doesn’t tell you what you’re getting but is only designed to catch your eye. In the case of the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 Intel Z87 motherboard, the package focus’s on the product while still maintaining an eye catching package. It may not have the flashy computer generated model waving her sword around, but if you’re in a retail store you’re still likely to at least pick this board up. On the front of the packaging the G1.Sniper 5 name stands out like a sore thumb against the black background. Above the name we can catch a  glimpse of the heatsink assembly, and a couple of things are immediately noticeable, but I’ll let you ponder on that until the next page when we break down the board layout and features.

The back of the packaging for the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 has no shortage of marketing text! At the center of the package we have an image of the board and surrounding the board GIGABYTE breaks down the features for us.

Opening up the outer shell of the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 packaging we can slide the heavier duty internal packaging. This box is much stronger and designed to prevent damage during the hazards of shipping.

Opening up the lid for the interior box we can see our first mostly unobstructed view of the G1.Sniper 5 in all its glory.

Removing the box containing the board we can find the bundle that accompanies the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 is separated and secured within the compartments below.

    This review seems to be between the Giga. G1. Sniper 5 and the ECS Z87H3-A2X, not sure how the Asus Z87 Pro made it to the party but whatever…. comments kind of miss matched with benchmarks graphs.
