Gigabyte ships the X99M-Gaming 5 in the company’s red and black G1 Gaming packaging. The Gigabyte eye and board name are shown on the front side, while the rear is reserved for a detailed run-down of specifications and features.
Opening the box flap reveals a full-size image of the motherboard – a particularly useful addition to the packaging for in-store customers.
Four SATA cables, a flexible SLI bridge, and the rear IO shield form the mATX motherboard’s basic bundle. Basic it may be, but the bundle is likely to be sufficient for the vast majority of this board’s customers.
Documentation consists of the standard array of manuals and paperwork, the driver CD, and two case stickers.
