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.
