Gigabyte G1-Killer 8 series motherboard
Gigabyte 8 series G1-Killer motherboard is packed with absolutely everything you'll need to build an uncompromising, high-performance gaming PC. Loaded with advanced audio technologies, dual networking, maxed out multi-card gaming support, advanced cooling and looks that could kill, Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboard is the ultimate choice for serious PC gamers.

Gigabyte OPT fan support
Gigabyte 8 series motherboard features OPT fan support, an additional CPU fan pin header that can be used to connect a water pump and configured for continuous full speed operation. The OPT Fan is also useful for high performance coolers employing two fans.

Gigabyte On/Off Charge
Gigabyte On/Off Charge technology is revised and upgraded on all Gigabyte 8 series motherboards, with comprehensive and enhanced charging support for a broad range of devices that include those that run both iOS and Android. Users can enjoy fast AC charging over USB on mobile devices, even when the PC is turned off.

Gigabyte AMP-up audio
Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboards are the world's first to feature an onboard OP-AMP socket, allowing enthusiasts to swap out the motherboard's onboard operational amplifier (OP-AMP) and explore personal audio preferences using a range of nuanced OP-AMPs available on the market. Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboards include an amplifier upgrade kit that includes a pair of specialized Operational Amplifiers and an IC Extractor for easy installation. Additional amplifiers can be purchased separately to further expand audio capabilities.

Creative Sound Core3D
Gigabyte 8 series G1-Killer motherboard features a dedicated Sound Core3D audio processor from Creative, a multi-core sound and voice processor offering high-performance hardware audio processing, with cutting-edge audio technologies including the SoundBlaster software suite.

Nichicon high end audio capacitors
Gigabyte 8 series G1-Killer motherboard uses the highest quality Nichicon MUSE ES series and MW series Bi-Polarized audio capacitors at each channel layout. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

Headphone amplifier - gaming headphone amplifier
Specially designed for gamers, Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboards utilize a high-capacity amplifier which is able to drive 600 Ω loads, giving gamers a fuller range of dynamic sound with crisper details and less distortion when using high quality professional headphones.

Audio noise guard - audio noise guard with path lighting
To help protect and insulate the high fidelity Creative Sound Core3D audio processor and onboard amplifiers from electromagnetic interference (EMI), Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboard features an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board's sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting Illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.

Gold plated audio hardware
Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboards pack top quality gold plated audio and HDMI connectors for improved connectivity and long lasting durability. Gold has superb signal conductivity and will not tarnish over extended periods of use. The Creative Sound Core3D processor is also shielded by a gold plated cover which eliminates electrostatic interference.

Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200
Gigabyte G1-Killer motherboards feature the Killer E2200 from Qualcomm Atheros, a high-performance, adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers better online gaming and online media performance compared to standard solutions. The Killer E2200 features Advanced Stream Detect technology, which identifies and prioritizes all network traffic to ensure important applications that require high-speed connectivity are prioritized over less important traffic.

Gigabyte Exclusive Ultra Durable technologies
Gigabyte 8 series motherboards integrate the absolute best quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability. With ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU loading, these exclusive capacitors also come in customized jet black, exclusively on Gigabyte 8 series motherboards.

Gold plated CPU socket
Gigabyte 8 series motherboard comes equipped with a gold plated CPU socket, which means that enthusiasts can enjoy absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU socket overtime, without having any concerns about corroded pins and bad contacts.

2x copper PCB
Gigabyte's exclusive 2X copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.
