    Very disappointing,most boards are the overused red,the others that are gold is a bit too much like Asus last gen,and the only 2 orange boards is garbage.I mean 4 phases on the Z97X-OC seriously?And 8 phases on the OC force?And both are only
    x4(or x8)/x4/x4/x4?Thats is just retarded.Does gigabyte want to get rid of this series or something?And where are the Green G1 boards?Without them G1 is not G1.

    Guys don’t believe this, it is a bunch of really obvious photoshops. Check for other sources, and I am very disappointed in you Kitguru…

    I gotta say that I’m rather disappointed in the fact that they’ve ditched their usual color scheme for the G1 boards. I know a lot o people will disagree with me on this, and the fact that they’ve also made a Black version is a great idea but changing the green and black color scheme with gold and black that is just a disappointment.

    Maybe there is a chance there will come a Sniper board with the original color scheme and to be honest i think that the whole gold is a bit overdone on these boards, I wouldn’t have had a problem with it if it had been more subtle but there will most definitely be some people out there who likes it.
