Up Close - Packaging and Accessories

The Aorus logo has always been attention grabbing and on a box as large as that within which lies the X399 Aorus Extreme it is doubly arresting. The front is big and bold whilst the reverse manages to highlight all the key features without dissolving into incoherence. You're definitely left in no doubt about what the X399 Aorus Extreme brings to the party.

The addition of a lid within the lid is a recent development in the world of packaging and Gigabyte have used this canvas to express a sentiment which is as valid a battle cry to the human race as a whole given the current world situation as it is something simple for gamers. We should all team up and fight on whilst politicians destroy the world around us to remind them who is really in charge.

Within the box is the full range of accessories that you would expect to find on such a premium motherboard, starting with the thick and detailed manual, some cable ties, and the all important driver CD.

Elsewhere there are a selection of cables including a full set of ones to connect your LED strips to the Aorus lighting headers on the X399 Extreme. You can also tell how high up the Gigabyte range the Aorus Extreme is simply by the quality of the SATA cables, far beyond that we regularly see included with a motherboard.

I like reviews when you get wound up and fire 1000 words/min. In recent times videos were neat and organised. I thought you've lost your touch Tom.

Really worrying from Gigabyte. They are still not raising from the slump.Quote

My current board is Gigabyte and I'm very happy with it. But at this rate my next one certainly won't be.Quote

I had purchased this board prior to your review based on I/O components (USB 3.1G2). I wish to thank you for your efforts which made me aware of the issues this board has. Shame on Gigabyte for their lackadaisical petty attitude. Some organizations would have acknowledged your point and then ignored you. I applaud those few who will work with you and am glad I went with AMD .Quote

Sorry but £1700 on a CPU and £450 on a Mobo... if that's not enough to serve as a great server/workstation out the box without the need to overclock there is something seriously wrong! Why would you even try overclocking such hardware?Quote
