Gigabyte G1.Sniper X58 review -
The motherboard piece by piece

This ensures stability -- but also reliability and extended lifespan.
Once we flip the board around once more, we again stumble into the six DIMM slots, DDR3 of course. There is 6 x DIMM support with a maximum of 48 GB, DDR3 2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory.
There is support straight from the BIOS and XMP profiles, and of course then higher with overclocks. All the way down we stumble into connectors, and SATA ports. What I miss on this mobo are power/reset buttons.
