New Build Thanks To The Tech Report BBQ!!!

Postposted on Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:41 pm

I know this is a bit late, but I have been extremely busy lately. I just wanted to thank The Tech Report for putting on such a great event, The Tech Report BBQ, and
show everyone my new build that I based around the Intel i7-4770k and GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC
motherboard that I somehow won in the Baggo Tournament (Thanks Zgirl). The BBQ in general was a
great event. The weather was perfect, the food was great and it was a full day of fun that ended with a
pretty sweet fireworks show. I suggest to those who have not been to The Tech Report BBQ to try and
make it out next year. This was my first time attending, I had an absolute blast and will definitely be
going to the future BBQs.

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB, 8-8-8-24/DDR3-1600, 4x4GB (2 Sticks Not Pictured)
SSD: 256GB SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series

Everything in this build is new, except for the EVGA GeForce GTX 560Ti, which came from my previous build.

Thanks again to The Tech Report, and hopefully I will be seeing many of you at the BBQ next year!

There you are! Hey guys, it's the ringer that stole "my" 4770K! Get him!

Good to see you again, JS. Nice to see you got a build together. My A8-660K is still in the box, I may need to pass it along soon, just so it gets used.

Edit: Looked at your pics. Your wiring makes mine look clean! You should take some time to police that up a little with some tape and zip ties. It makes it much nicer to show around. You can always put it back after you take pictures.

Nice build! Better than my system.

Except, you know, the graphics card. ;)

Thanks for sharing!

And we all nod and smile, overlooking the fact that Damage can just step over to the test bench and borrow an LGA2011 plus SLI Titan setup......
