The packaging of a motherboard can usually give us an insight, a first impression if you will that sets the scene. Cheap, flimsy packaging is often used to protect a basic motherboard whereas quality will shine through from beginning to end and hopefully that is what we get here with the GIGABYTE. The front of the design is similar to both their graphics card and previous X99 motherboards using the same font and overall theme.
The box features a flip lid which instead of showing us the actual motherboard through a window, we get a hi-res picture. To the back of the package GIGABYTE go to great lengths explaining the main features of this motherboard along with a useful shot of the I/O area.
GIGABYTE are rarely known for their exuberance as far as the included accessories go and this product is no different with just the bare essentials provided to get you going. 4x SATA cables (2 straight, 2 angled), utility DVD, manual, quick-start guide, warranty leaflet and an SLI bridge are all you get.
