Package and Contents
GIGABYTE's X38T is a part of the DQ6 series of boards which is their top of the line series with just about every feature you could ever want. The box that you get the board shipped in is a huge oversized one. The front gives you only a few details on the board itself.
The back of the box however gives quite a bit more information along with a full colour photo of the board so there are no surprises on what you're getting from your hard earned bucks.
GIGABYTE's box also has a flip-open front that allows you to get a small glimpse of the board itself along with a bit more information on some of the board's features.
GIGABYTE provides in its package four out of eight SATA data cables in relation to how many SATA ports are available on the board, so if you plan to run six or more drives you're going to have to head down to your local PC shop to get some more cables. The ribbon cable bundle includes a single FDD and IDE setup.
Rather than routing two of the onboard SATA ports direct to e.SATA, GIGABYTE gives you a choice to use them by including a PCI expansion cover bracket that has two e.SATA ports on it which can be plugged into any of the SATA ports on the board.
