I believe that most of you no longer need to introduce GigaBite. It is one of the most prominent hardware manufacturers in the market with booty , Motherboards, And end products for computer users.

With the launch of Intel's Z97 chipset this year and new motherboards, GigaBite decided to launch a new product series, the Gaming Series. If it sounds familiar to you, that's no coincidence. Towards the end of the life of a LGA1155 resident, MSI decided to launch a motherboard with the Z77 chipset that bears the name Z77-GD65 Gaming.

The idea is quite simple. Take motherboards from the mainstream series, rinse them in red and put them in a number of features suitable for the gamers market. GigaBite chose the same name as And in the same color scheme of red and black, which in recent years has become quite popular among advanced users who have previously chosen ROG's series .

The latest launch of the new LGA2011-v3 extender was launched And with it the manufacturers have had the opportunity to showcase their engineering capabilities with highly advanced motherboards under a variety of series. This time we brought to you the most advanced Gigabyte gaming series on LGA2011-v3 and in general - the X99- G1 WiFi


Also within the series GigaBite has different degrees. The simplest is 3, the middle is 5, the top is 7 and the highest is the G1. The addition of WiFi called of course comes from the fact that this motherboard carries a controller Wireless.

Company Profile - Gigabyte X99- G1 WiFi

  • configuration: ATX
  • Chipset: X99
  • chassis: LGA2011-v3
  • Sound Card: SoundBlaster Core3Di built-in
  • Network controller: two. One of the And one of Killer E2201
  • Ports Package: Four of a kind 3.0 and four type 2.0
  • Ports Rear: Eight of a kind 3.0 two-type 2.0
  • Storage interfaces: Eight SATA3 ports, a SATA-Express port and an integrated M.2 SATA and PCI-Express port
  • Fan Connectors: Five, all controlled software

As you notice, the prominent gaming features in this motherboard include controller Designed for gamers and a highly advanced sound card. I will focus on these components later in the review.

Like X99 Deluxe, here too it is difficult to point out its direct competitors to X99- G1 WiFi as there are no panels that are similar in all characteristics. This motherboard is at a price point of only $ 350, and is considered to be the best for a premium board in the Extreme Socket. The X99- G1 WiFi is expected to be sold in Israel at a price of about NIS 1800, which is also lower than the X99 Deluxe.

Package contents


With motherboard X99- G1 WiFi receive User Manuals, Software CD, Six SATA Cables, WiFi Antenna,, A rear IO panel for the chassis and bridges for all types of graphics card sets that you can install on this motherboard. Also included in the package are 8PIN power adapters for those who want to connect more than one connector providing the power into the single port on the board.

In general, investment in these parts is skipped by manufacturers of motherboards. Here, when the mirror is an integral part of the experience, GigaBite decided to invest and give SATA cables with black sleeves. In addition, the back panel has a bright and light lettering so that in the dark it will be easy to identify the types of ports on the back of the case. I would be happy to see these two on every motherboard from the Of Gigabyte and not just the most advanced.

Motherboard - GigaBite Red Eye


This is the X99- G1 GIGABYTE WiFi, and is the company's most advanced gaming board to date. The design of this motherboard is the most attractive to me from the company, and it is evident that thought was invested in the design of the cooling elements and the printed magnifying plate to transmit forward and gaming. I'm very happy that in the past few years GigaBite has left the blue printed boards and moved to black. The eye is a symbol that in recent years has become identified with GIGABYTE's advanced gaming products.

This is the heat sink that covers the chip set, the X99. When a chip has a heat envelope of 6.5W, the X99 does not require Especially advanced. Still, Gghavit added two tubes That go from this body to other parts of the board. Under the heat sink there is a red-eyeed bulb when the board is working.


The expansion interfaces on this motherboard come in a PCI-Express format only. It seems that PCI days are few when it looks less and less with the launch of new motherboards, especially in the Extreme seats. This array of interfaces is optimized mainly for three and four video cards in the SLI or CrossFireX configuration (Anodia, of course). If only two are used , You can take advantage of the big spacing between the first and the third large grooves. Use four Thickness will prevent the ability to use the small PCI-Express X1 slots, but three They would leave one available for additions. Alternatively, using water cooling for the video cards will turn them into thinners to make the small slots between them usable.

As befits the most advanced motherboard in the series, there are no discounts. Only three video cards are acceptable and Gbayte uses the full length of ATX to achieve the ability to have four video cards in the array. Remember, used CPU i7 5820K The budget array will be limited to three only.


This is the array of interfaces designed for hard drives. There are eight standard SATA3 ports in addition to one SATA-Express port, from which you can output two separate SATA3 ports if not in use. To the right of ports there is a SATA power connection to the motherboard if you use three or four . It is not connected to the standard SATA interfaces.


Between the interfaces There are two devices of M.2. The lower is used by the wireless communication, and the upper is empty and is suitable for anchoring the standard M.2 drives Or SATA. Please note that using the upper interface will disable the two most right SATA3 interfaces in the image above.


Each side of the processor cradle has four memory slots The new. With a volume of 8 gigabytes per single stick today, the maximum volume you can install on this motherboard is 64 gigabytes. Soon, 16 Gigabytes will be launched that will allow for a maximum capacity of 128 gigabytes. The memory speed depends primarily on the processor memory controller's ability to deal with it, but there is no problem in supporting the frequency of up to 3000 MHz at the moment.


The lower left part of the motherboard is located The voice. Unlike many motherboards on the market, GigaBite decided to choose a Creative chip over Realtek's popular ALC1150. This is because the attainment of even higher sound quality is used in advanced signaling. The Core 3Di on this motherboard is equipped with an Texas Instruments OPA2134 amplifier that provides the juice it needs to deliver sound to high-impedance speakers such as headphones and speakers. Gigabit uses the Japanese Nichicon electrolyte capacitors as part of its electrical system The voice. This is to achieve a natural and cleaner sound. The use of electrolyte capacitors for sound components is common in the music and audio world and these capacitors are preferable to standard solid capacitors using simpler motherboards.


Move to the rear ports on the motherboard. On the back of the motherboard is the screws for the WiFi and Bluetooth antennas, 7.1 sound outputs, including an optical port, eight USB ports 3.0 (blue, white is also used for BIOS update from USB), two 2.0 (yellow) USB ports. There are two RJ45 network ports. On the right is the Killer and left mouse controller from the . The decision is yours to use, both of which correspond to all standard uses you can make on an RJ45 port. One tower has an OC button that automatically accelerates the processor, the F button is a quick entry button for the operating system.

Clicking on it will skip the tests and rituals of turning on the computer and go directly to loading the system from the drive. The small button below is the reset button. In addition, Gigabyte included an integrated PS2 port for those still holding an old keyboard or mouse. This port is known for high compatibility when a computer is installed and is being used by overkluckers who want a quick response in order to get to Bussy quickly.

Power system of X99- G1 WiFi

For the processor power supply system on this motherboard, GigaBite chose my most familiar components from the world of graphics cards. This supply system is digital and uses digital stabilizers. The electronic coils are from Cooper Bussmann (FP1007R3-R15) and are the ones you will find most on the graphics cards such as GTX 780 and R9 290 today. Usually these graphics cards will find a six-step array, here there are eight steps and no problem is expected even when dealing with 300 watts to the socket.

In the mainstream, you probably will not run into such an array on a gaming motherboard. Due to the increased power consumption of LGA2011-v3 processors and the higher overall cost, this is required.


The heat sink for the voltage stabilizers divides heat dissipation with a body Another connected to it with a copper tube.

  1. I especially liked the leather: |
    RGB Keyboards Mice video cards that have begun to put on their side LED
    CPU Coolers and now motherboards

    I am in favor

    It is very interesting the big impact on OC that the motherboard has compared to the deluxe you reviewed a while ago
    Quite a significant difference if I remember correctly you reached a higher frequency and even cooler temperatures

  2. With Core i7 5820K is acting great. Overclock is easily done and with good tension I squeeze the 4500MHZ I wanted.

  3. I don't want to give Killer too much importance. This is a total Qualcomm network controller that has received software that allows for easy monitoring and software prioritization for network traffic.

  4. For me, the killer did not improve pings abroad, the same ping as I get on the old computer with a poor ON-BOARD.

  5. Thanks,
    According to your review and experience, which board is best? The deluxe or the g1
    And what memories to buy that fit best?

  6. If the issue of pings has already arisen, at the principle level is it not solely dependent on the supplier infrastructure? As if there is a situation that if I invest in which special card I get better performance?
    (Asking on a principled level and I have no intention of turning the thread into a Pingyu question)

  7. URL =


    A. Traffic prioritization can only affect the local level, that is, what is happening on your computer. For example, information packets sent or arriving that belong to the game will be handled before other information packets, such as those containing arp queries, etc. (I do not know for sure which types of information packets are preferred, but I understand that it can be set manually, at least partially).
    B. Even if you buy a network card that has a powerful processing unit and a lot of memory (eventually some information packs have to be processed and especially the encapsulation / encapsulation) all that can happen at most is that the information packs will be sent to the network a little sooner and handled a little faster.
    In the end, everything that happens as soon as the information pack gets out of your computer cannot be controlled, and this whole matter of handling the information pack faster or sooner will give minimal improvement at most.

  8. Great review.
    It is precisely the LEDs that make points to this board.
    It looked too ornate.
    And it doesn't really help to see the exits more clearly in the dark, quite the opposite, because these are really dazzling, barely visible holes (that's what the videos look like).
    It seems like they put that option in to attract a younger audience didn't they? After all, what does the board need to flash according to the music I hear or the game I play, you don't see it at all. And even if the chassis sits close to the eye, it only gets in the way that in the middle of the game the LEDs are flashing in front of your eye….
    It kind of reminds me of the small screen gaming keyboards that show data from the game… as if someone would prefer to look away from the screen to the keyboard to see how much life or ammunition they had left….
    A totally visual gimmick and not the most useful.

  9. You can't lower a score on the option, certainly not the option to completely turn off all the LEDs and forget they exist.
