Closer look The Gigabyte G1. Assassin has one of the most interesting layouts I have ever seen. The theme is pure military in nature, revolving mostly around guns, as Gigabyte intends for the board to be your main "weapon" in gaming.

With FPS games being arguably the best selling games, what better way is there to get the attention of gamers by appealing to their fancy? When it comes to the G1-Killer line up, Gigabyte clearly did not cut any corners or take any shortcuts at all. From the LAN controller, Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN sound chip and accompanying circuit, you get all the best components on one motherboard. The cooling system on the G1.

Gigabyte's in 2 X79 Motherboard Features Killer NIC

Assassin is without question the most visually unique of anything we've ever seen. They play the whole military theme very well. The heatsink covering the South Bridge was modeled after a real a magazine clip from an assault rifle, complete with protruding round. All portions of the cooling system are link via a single heat pipe for better heat dissipation. The heatsinks are so well designed to look like parts of a weapon Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN Gigabyte had indicate that they cannot be assembled to become one. Even with the heatsinks being so cleverly designed, Gigabyte still made sure to provide enough room as to not hinder the mounting of any CPU coolers, which is a good thing.

If you had not guessed it yet the G1. Assassin and entire G1-Killer line is a socket motherboard. Currently the available processors are the i7 quad-coreand hex-core and X. Older models like the, and X are also supported though as they are still able to be found. Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN arrangement of the slots might be a little tricky if intending to use more than GPU, so just in case we will outline their configuration. If looking to run a triple or quad card setup then the second and forth can be used, and if configured as such will result in slots 1 and 3 dropping to x8 to match that of 2 and 4 which are only x8 electrically.

Assassin does offer two x1 PCIe slots and one standard PCI slot, though with so much incorporated into the board as is we really don't see anyone needing them. The extra Molex connectors above the first x16 PCIe slot and below the last slot are to provide more power to the PCIe slots, to insure stable operation during heavy loads. The integrated memory controller in the socket Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN is only natively rated up to MHz, but the motherboard here supports up to DDR3 Mhz when overclocking. Assassin is a triple channel memory motherboard like that of most X58 motherboards.

When installing ram it is recommended to use triple channel kits, but dual channel is also supported, and also to populate the green slots first. Being essentially an integrated "discrete" network card allows it to relieve the CPU of the responsibilities of having to process any task, where by letting it concentrate on Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN priority processes, thus lowering network latency. As any serious gamer will tell you, a latency of even 10ms over your opponent can make a world of difference! The sound card, for lack of a better term, which the G1. The components you see in the second image all contribute to the the sound quality and amplification of audio. While not something known by all, and admittedly only possessing a rudimentary knowledge Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN, the capacitors [caps] play quite an important role in an audio circuit.

Like providing stable and clean power to components like our processor, they act in a similar way with audio circuits by filtering audible electrical noise and stray signal interference. Not only that, but they impact the actual sound produced, and response of frequencies being played deep bass or fuller mids for example.

So it's worth mentioning that the caps Gigabyte chose to incorporate on the Assassin's audio circuit are not your typical motherboard grade capacitor that you'd generally find used. Instead they went with high quality audio grade in order to take full advantage of the X-Fi chip, something that sadly not even Creative did until their recent Titanium HD.

We suspect this is likely a result of running out of usable PCB real estate as a Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN of the board being jam packed with every feature but the kitchen sink. As such, the only way to clear the CMOS after a boot failure is to go "old school", by jumping the pins on the black 2-pin header near the mounting hole of the motherboard.


The strange white 5-pin header next to it is where the front panel box connects to, which we will Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2 BigFoot LAN on the next page. However, the real kicker here is the Quick Boost button which will overclock the system on the fly or during boot up. All the headers are 4-pin so to take advantage of the PWM function. Each header can be controlled via the Gigabyte Windows-based applications.
