"Jump forward a few more months, though, with the launch of the X79 chipset and we saw that GIGABYTE was getting on the G1 bandwagon straight away. Last week we managed to preview the new GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, but today we get to really see what the new board is about in our full review. Because we've already previewed the board, we've had the opportunity to cover almost every aspect of the board already."

"Third in line is the ECS X79R-AX, which despite its poor overclocking performance is still good enough at stock performance to go toe to toe with the more expensive motherboards tested while costing the least. It has some nice features like the 4-way SLI or CFX setup and the temperature indicator on the chipset heatsink. If money is an issue and you’re not planning to do any overclocking, the ECS X79R-AX is the best motherboard of the bunch."
"Gigabyte ensured that this board was going to appeal to the extreme-enthusiast market. That’s exactly what it does. With the extra real estate that’s present on the board they were able to ensure that the processor would get all of the power that it would need. For the extreme overclocker this isn’t hard to understand."

"With their G1.Assassin 2 from their “Gamer” series, Gigabyte hopes to deliver a board which exceeds anything else in the mainstream market and we will be putting this motherboard to the test, both in real-world and some synthetic tests to see if this board can live up to the claims."

"Gigabyte responded with a new BIOS very quickly, it seems that the older BIOS did not set any failsafe limitations. The new F7 BIOS will throttle down the CPU when subjected to extreme stress, to preserve and overheat the VRM. The board effected where: GA-X79-UD3, GA-X79-UD5, and G1.Assassin 2."
