Overview

Hardware:
 
 
Price at time of Review: $240.99 on Newegg.com
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Simplistic Aesthetics, Stable performance, Great Value for the money
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Memory Overclocking stability pass 3000MHz.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
Gigabyte priced this competitively and gives other manufactures a run for there money in the same arena. For a board that can support M.2 SATA, SATA Express, Quad/Triple/Dual SLI or Crossfire, and DDR4 memory of up to 3000MHz out of the box, this is a bargain.

Package and Contents

The package of the Gigabyte X99-SLI artwork wasn’t anything new or surprising. Gigabyte doesn’t veer from its design layout too much and it’s sometimes nice to see consistency. This leaves customers coming back to an already successful image. At the front, Gigabyte does a good job at laying out the model number and specifics. It’s simple and gets right to the point like we have seen with other boards in its class.

Here’s another look at the front of the package.

At the rear of the package, Gigabyte does go into a bit more detail about the motherboard and its features. This is great for those who need a quick break down of the specs.

Once inside, the Gigabyte X99-SLI is simplified like we saw with the X99-UD3-P motherboard we reviewed recently. Here we find the Instruction manuals with drivers disk located inside the booklet. We also find four SATA Cables, SLI and Crossfire bridges and the rear I/O Shield. At the price point of the X99-SLI motherboard, we get a much simple package which is likely not a huge deal breaker for anyone.

Now that we have covered the package and its contents, let’s dig into a little bit more detail.
