Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 Motherboard

Gigabyte's G1.Sniper Z87 motherboard is on the test bench at APH Networks today. You might want to give this review a look if you have plans to upgrade to a Z87 board.

When I first came across the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87, my first impression was, this must be an expensive enthusiast board. I mean, it comes with Creative's dedicated Sound Core3D chip and high end Nichicon MUSE ES audio capacitors -- not to mention even a dedicated BigFoot NPU, plus some fancy LED lights on board. If amazing audio (Which performed excellently on our tests, by the way) and network still doesn't convince you for what you're paying, then I don't know what else will, because the Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 retails for only $170 at press time.
