Oh yes, I missed the gun barrel!! I still maintain that they should have used black boards with black/UV slots.

No now you come to mention it I can't see any difference in the two boards. Maybe it's just the price! ;D

The slots might be UV, but ya I do agree I think they should be UV no matter if they are black or blu.

Of course I'd really prefer blue slots since they are taking away the blue PCB already.   Black on black like what's currently on P67 is just too much black I think.

Ya price will be different for sure, I'm sure we'll be able to tell once their web pages are online.

Bit-tech has a preview here, with some news of another possible lineup of the G1 based boards in the near future -one for us overclockers too.

I must admit when I thought about it I did consider maybe there would be too much black. As you say blue UV slots would be good and would keep a bit of the Gigabyte corporate colour in the design.

Ya, I do think it's a bit too much.   The blue or gold tones on the heatsinks do look nice, but I don't think it's enough and they should have colored the slots as well

I can't see the differences between the Guerrilla and the Sniper, can you?

Both Assassin and Sniper have Creative Sound Blaster onboard while Guerilla has Realtek HD audio.
Guerrilla will be bundled with Creative software to support X-Fi (Xtreme Fidelity).

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

What has suprised me is that the manufacturer hasn't incorporated UEFI into the new boards yet.

Lsdmeasap... they should have left the designing to us, would have been a terrific looking board! ;)

Interesting looking boards, especially with the choice of audio. Not sure if I would want to use one though!

Yes, I can see it now. Everything water cooled and it would be supplied with its own chainsaw for modding!!!!  :P
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

Thanks for the info Runn3r!

EFI is coming for sure to P67 sometime soon via BIOS update, not sure about these or not though?

Yes, we could design some good boards I'm sure!

Is it possible to just run an update to patch it or would it have to be hardware encoded first?

The hardware is there already for P67, and it's planned to be implemented sometime.   As for the newer X58's I haven't heard anything yet

I was kinda thinking that these boards were just a proof of concept or a Sandybridge lineup, they will actually be released in x58? why? where are already a great series of boards ud3/4/5/7/9.  Are these G1 boards any better overclockers? or are they just marketed towards gamers.  It's said that these boards have an "Enlarged CPU zone for better cooler compatibility".  As an overclocker I think that's great and looking at the socket area it certainly looks clean.  So I'm not sure who this board is aimed at.

Just seen this on techpowerup


Damn, I'm confused now.  Let me get this right now, the G1 mobos with the green slots are for gamers and the other line of mobos with orange slots which name I don't know yet are for overclockers, and all are x58?.  Someone please shed some light before I go crazy :P :-X

Yeah! I love the look of that orange, but I would have to stick with black or blue, seeing as my case has blue LED fans and such :P

I will be working hard over summer so I can buy me some of that LGA 2011 goodness when it arrives! I hope they have the same look as the SB boards!
