Introduction

The G1.Assassin is the most high-end socket LGA1366 motherboard from the Gigabyte series "G1-Killer," which has a "gun-like" design and is aimed at gamer enthusiast users. It has eight SATA ports (six SATA-300 and two SATA-600), eight USB 3.0 ports, six memory sockets, and four PCI Express x16 slots. Let’s check it out.

The G1-Killer series is a set of motherboards (by now, all compatible with socket LGA1366 CPUs) which brings high-quality sound and network interfaces (we will see more details in the next pages). The G1-Killer motherboards also have a graphical design on the box, manuals, and even heatsinks, that resembles weapons and warfare. Other models are the G1.Sniper and G1.Guerrilla.

The portrayed motherboard comes in the XL-ATX form factor, measuring 13.5 x 10.3 inches (345 x 263 mm), which means it will not fit standard ATX cases with seven slots.
