Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5 Review

We would expect that these two benchmarks, being perhaps the most CPU intensive ones, would be the area where the Gigabyte Gaming 5 is undoubtedly firmly at the bottom because of it's smaller overclock, and yet the x264 encoding benchmark produces an excellent result. It just goes to show that you can never assume what the result you'll obtain would be.

Definitely green ties in so well with the Nvidia stock cooler.Quote

You were right! We need those green and black stuff back...
I also like the blue and black ones too... Theres a lack of those boards to.
If i were in the place of Gigabyte i would push out a white and black stuff as well... I think it might be working... Quote

I have to say, with the last two motherboards i purchased, I bought my motherboards based on their colour.

My Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 was all black, because i wanted all-black, and I recently purchased a Gigabyte Z87-G1 SNIPER because it was green.

I think Gigabyte will miss out on the many users that want green systems, then again red is much more mainstream and could attract more users to Sniper series boards.

Personally, I'll miss the green colouring. It was something that ONLY a gigabyte Sniper board can give you. RIP Sniper green, you will be missed.Quote

One good thing about that board is that it has a standard PCI slot. I thought they were obsolete now? If I had known then I wouldn't have thrown my X-Fi elite pro sound card away Quote
