Do you listen to the community?

…because I can’t help but feel that you don’t. If you did I don’t think we’d of ever gotten to the point of needing a public opinion poll to express our dissatisfaction with the Assassin’s aesthetic. I mean people have been bitching about this from day one. I can personally say I wanted to buy this board, I got excited about it when I saw the prototype, then I felt like beating my head against a wall when I saw this

Please, help us all out here and go back to the original design. You WILL see a pleasant uptick in sales compared to prior incarnations. Seriously, don't underestimate how badly you can sabotage yourself with an asinine aesthetic. Even without a case window it'd gross me out knowing it was in my case.

I can see what you are complaining of and would agree that the gun does look a bit childish. I think someone just got a bit carried away after the success of the previous design. You should see the next gen design! Nukes!

Seriously, I would like to see a more detailed and extensive photograph of the whole board before I jumped into dismissing it as no good. The board is tremendous in so many other ways though. I would love to get hold of one to review, gun or no gun. ;)

  I agree with what DM is getting at .... and the review part to boot! ..... but first things first!.....

  …because I can’t help but feel that you don’t. ...... you speak like your of the opinion that we (DM/,I and other on the Forum) have a say in what Gigabyte Do!.....

  "We are a Public Forum".......we have no say or carry any powers re Gigabyte design.....Pricing structure or even what's coming next!

  All I can add is if you don't like it.....Don't buy it .... On the other hand, voicing your opinion as you have .... may be noticed as the forum does occasionally have gigabyte staff trawling the pages.
