The Gigabyte 990FXa-UD7 motherboard ships in an attractively designed box with a picture of the dramatically designed heatsink in the center. There is also a list of key specifications along the bottom.
Inside are two half height boxes which contain the peripherals and the motherboard.
The bundle is comprehensive, including a manual, driver and software disc, I/O backplate, SATA cables and several stickers for a case. Additionally, there are a plethora of SLI and Crossfire cables in the box: 3 way SLI bracket, 4 way SLI bracket, single SLI cable and two Crossfire cables. For some reason we received a manual with only chinese text.
I have to say I was surprised that Gigabyte didn’t include a few more SATA cables with this product.
