    That's a generous giveaway - guess I'll need to go and win a 6th Gen i7 to go with it.. and DDR4 and a 1080 =[

    Awesome giveaway - If I win, that means I HAVE to upgrade the rest of my rig, right?

    Re: Win 1 of 10 Killer-optimised gaming motherboards

    Such a load of bs. Ultimately, it depends on the speed of your Internet connection. I can leave torrents running @ ~ 1.0 - 3.5MBp/s, someone might be net flixing AND play games with ~ 20-30ms using a non "Killer" NIC. They really are getting desperate to add features aren't they

    I always thought they tried to sell the Killer kit on latency rather than throughput (all that really matters when gaming) - haven't ever read any evidence that the Killer NICs are better than any other - and a lot of people moan about them too.

    Rest of the board looks like a nice upgrade though, and a cheap intel PCI NIC would be an acceptable upgrade.

    It does seem to be a good QoS implementation and if you're the only person on your network it may be worth paying a small amount extra for.

    Of course, most of us share networks with a family or significant other and are far more interested in router-based QoS. It's always seemed bizzare that Killer focused on internet hardware instead of working on gaming routers. Bring out a rock solid £100-150 VDSL router with five years of bugfixes and their QoS implementation and I suspect that'd sell really well. Oh, and tastefully designed too.

    Anyway, looks like a nice motherboard to win. I'd have preferred Micro ATX but I suppose 'Gaming' boards of that cost have to support SLI/Crossfire and sound cards etc.

    So if you entered and won, you wouldn't want it then, right?
