    Gigabyte's elusive LGA1366 motherboard part of the company's G1-Killer series of motherboards targeting gamers has finally seen the lens. The socket LGA1366 motherboard by Gigabyte is based on the Intel X58 + ICH10R chipset, and is given the brand name G1.Guerrilla. To quickly run you through its styling, "Guerrilla" strikes a chord with a very "jungle warfare" color-scheme, which is black+green. This seems to be the case with the G1.Guerrilla, which goes close to looking like an NVIDIA desktop board.

    The CPU is powered by an 8+2 phase VRM, wired to six DDR3 DIMM slots for triple-channel memory; the northbridge heatsink looks like a modular rifle barrel, and the southbridge heatsink like a 5.56 mm magazine. There are three PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots lending 3-way SLI and CrossFireX support, the usual two-port USB 3.0 + SATA 6 Gb/s duet, but a handful of interesting gamer-specific devices, such as the Killer 2100 hardware NIC, an HD audio CODEC that uses X-Fi MB software but high-grade electrolytic capacitors. The motherboard is out and out a gamers' motherboard. Gigabyte already has motherboards for overclockers which don't look very boutique but do the job, under its existing X58A UD5, UD7, and UD9 models.

    Most may think it's cheesy, but I like the magazine-heatsink thing. Looks like a beeaaast

    I guess better late then never, but still I'd rather they focus on a cool 1155 board instead.

    OK, the hardware features are nice... but the design... it looks like childish crap... no grotesque... a high end PC must reek of being monster... not a plastic toy... :shadedshu

    I think this is the first time they actually used the CA20K2 chip. Usually they just stick X-Fi Xtreme Audio on it, meaning it has Realtek/ALI codec with Creative software.

    its a typo. the guerrilla uses a normal audio codec and through software emulates X-Fi. Assassin & Sniper have proper X-Fi chips.

    Yes, they're. But only are for the audio subsystem. And they're high end. And they're goldish.

    Either way, it's interesting to see such high end audio chip integrated on mobo itself.
