In order to look at a finished frame a user must render the frame to disk which bypasses the GPU. First a few answers to some possible questions. The printed material consists of the main manual which is well documented except for one important page. Larger heatsinks will be more easily accommodated. Sisoft Sandra Memory Benchmark. For the novice DIY there is one fold out sheet that very much impressed me.

In other words the BIOS settings were standard as far as anyone can set the time and date, ensure the ram is 2 or 4 way interleave and at CAS 2.

Other than that tip it was all rather simple and painless. In the quest for features, options, overclockability, stability and price the question is has Gigabyte bat a home run? It is a complete overview of the basics to build your own computer from the ground up.

I would think if you are passing 80 degrees Celsius then you are yigabyte on your way to losing a chip. The flaw, for me, is the vertical orientation of the heatsink ears. Though in years to come it will come in handy when the owner loses the manual.
