As always we start off with the packaging and bundle. Above you can see what to look for in the stores. Nice looking packaging design by the way.
We received the final retail sample and as such it comes packed with a quite decent product bundle. Among the gear inside the kit you'll find the following:
- 1 x 2-Way SLI Bridge
- Driver Disk
- Four SATA cables
- I/O shield
- 3.5" Front panel with 2 USB 3.0 / 2.0 port headers
You'll also receive a poster and transparent stickers with bullets and logo etc which you can place on your chassis.
Interesting to find in the bundle, we think, is a Front Access Control Panel. The Front Access Control Panel allows quick and easy access to 2 USB 3.0 ports and Power eSATA. The Front Access Control Panel also features a Quick Boost button that allows for an instant overclock with a single press of a button.
This Z68 motherboard comes with video output, we see 1x HDMI 1.4a, that's it. We have absolutely no doubt though that if you spend 400 EUR on a motherboard aimed at gamers, you'd be installing a dedicated graphics card, so the graphics subsystem as such we feel is insignificant.
We review the Gigabyte Force M7 THOR game mouse, a 6000 DPI laser based game mouse from Gigabyte. Head on-wards into the review where we test the product.

We review, test and benchmark the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 motherboard. It is the flagship product amongst Gigabyte's Z77 products LOADED with features and overclock potential.
Gigabyte Osmium review
We review the Gigabyte Osmium mechanical keyboard from Gigabyte's Aivia series. It comes with a lot of features that should be appealing to you as a gamer. For example integrated USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports (through a HUB). The Osmium is a mechanical keyboard, as such is has been equipped with RED flavored switches (preferred by many). These keys have will be long-lived and can withstand a severe beating bringing you the stuff you as a gamer like so much.
