    Gigabyte Gaming Box Reviews

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaming ready Its perfect for games if you have thunderbolt 3, just plug and play :)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from We could have had it all... This afternoon, as I got home from work I was so excited to see my package had finally been delivered to my front door. I take the box (mind you it's big) and set it on my bed. I can hardly contain myself as I start cutting away at the packaging wrap and remove from the box... another box! As I continue opening and discarding my seemingly limitless supply of boxes like Sisyphus and his fruitless efforts, I finally stumble upon it - shiny and calling to me, the Gigabyte Aorus gtx 1080 Gaming box wrapped in its protective layer of bubble wrap with two pieces of yellow tape labled? "Certified Gigabyte". At this point I'm just blind with excitement. As I remove the hefty contents of that thin bubble wrap, I hear a sound that made my heart sink and my face drain of all color... a rattle. "What could it be?" I ask myself, not yet understanding the horror that lay before me. A closer inspection at this block of heartbreak reveals the culprit of the rattling, a LOOSE SCREW, not to mention the power supply enterance was not horizontally aligned with the box. I rushed, got all the components together in the right order, plugged them in and installed all the appropriate software to my computer. Figuring a single loose screw could be anything, maybe it wouldn't affect performance all that much. And boy was I wrong. Thunderbolt 3 was ready, nvidia was ready, and when the time came, I plugged power to the gaming box and what do you know? A faint whir of the fan, a loud coil whine, no RGB LED functionality and definitely no sign that this egpu was in any shape of running anything. For hours after, I tried and failed to get this thing running. From restarting my computer well over half a dozen times, installing alternate drivers for programs, and even updating thunderbolt firmware. The box wouldn't give me a break. I finally gave up, I couldn't handle this headache anymore. All I have to say is that until someone begins to realize that a piece of technology as costly and sensitive as this requires more finesse and attention to detail to ensure proper functionality, I strongly recommend that you refrain from buying their products. So patiently I waited. So much I paid. A whole week getting my hopes up on finally being able to up my computing experience. I was going to play Fallout 4 on Ultra settings and start learning CAD. My hopes died in Gigabyte and I AM getting a complete refund. This was my personal experience and it may differ from yours, call it a fluke or what have you, but I've read too many reviews on this product to really be able to say anything positive
