Need help getting 3770k on a G1. Sniper 3 MOBO to 5GHZ

MondayMay 13, When we think of gaming computers, we tend to think of monstrous towers bristling with graphics cards and other hardware. Not every gamer needs or wants such a bulky tower of power.


Overclocking Overclocking the GigabyteG1 Sniper M3 was an interesting but overall pleasant experience. I did run into a few oddities while working with it.


First of all like any higher tier Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 manufacturer, the products using a chipset late in the production life of that chipset tend to be stellar overclockers with very little work. Using automatic settings and adjusting only the CPU multiplier I was able to hit a clock speed of 4. It was actually set for 4. I tried two different versions of CPU-Z to verify this.

Voltage always showed 1. Further investigation showed automatic voltage settings upwards of 1. There are three presets, the highest one being for 4. When enabled the system restarted twice and seemed to lock up.

Upon successfully rebooting itself and getting to the Windows desktop I checked the current CPU speed. Manual adjustment either in BIOS or Easy Tune 6 allowed the clock speed to go up as normal but I found it odd that the software would show a lower clock speed than what the board was set for in BIOS with no evidence of thermal throttling or instability.

With no evidence of instability I pushed on with the automated CPU voltage but set the power phases to give me all these had. That one change allowed me to attain a 4. However the higher automated voltage created a high temp situation. No throttling occurred but 93c was a bit warmer than I wanted it to be. I was able to manually Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 the CPU voltage to 1. This was not the case here.

Default settings of 1. It is not as good as it could have been were it to have BCLK adjustability and better cooling hardware. I wanted to check this one out for awhile and in my mind I always compared it to the Maximus V Gene board Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 was a fantastic mATX board and a great board by any standard.

Features aside I think this board does compare Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 to the ASUS offering as both are kind of targeted toward the same basic audience, albeit with different priorities and budgets in mind. Aside from the overclocking quirks I mentioned the time spent with the G1 Sniper M3 was nothing short of excellent. At no point did the motherboard give me any issues. There were never any problems recovering from bad overclocks or installation issues with the OS, drive detection issues, or benchmark anomalies. The feature set is lean but solid.

Precision is the watch word in all areas of the motherboard's design, with as much attention to detail paid to the motherboards aesthetic qualities as to its technical prowess. While we look at this from a hardware enthusiast perspective it is very much aimed at the gamer that wants to take on a DIY project rather than the hardware purist. Whether or not the electric lime green accent colors are your Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6, is obviously a personal call.

I think the M3 will look right at home in many builds however it is not adorned with Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 bullet heatsinks or other associated "cool" marketing that we have seen in other "Killer" motherboards. This motherboard has seen a fairly healthy release of BIOS over the last year and does not seem to have been ignored in any way, so that is Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Easy Tune6 a good thing. Pulling the add-in video card and relying on the Intel on-chip video out solved this hurdle for me.

Once I had fully booted and shut down, I could then use my add-in video card without issue. Not an ideal situation, and it took me a while to figure it out, but once you are in the know, it is a simple fix if you have an issue.
