G.Skill hooks up the TR BBQ with some giveaway goodies

The "second-10th" TR BBQ kicks off tomorrow, and the folks at G.Skill have sent us some hardware to give away to some lucky attendees. G.Skill's contribution is a last-minute one, so the only hardware we have on hand to photograph is the Trident Z 32GB DDR4-3200 CL16 memory kit shown relaxing in a hammock below. This kit spreads its capacity across four 8GB sticks with a spiffy black-and-white paint job.

Somewhere en route are also a collection of G.Skill peripherals. The Ripjaws KM780 RGB is a mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX brown switches and per-key programmable lighting. It also boasts on-the-fly macro recording and a mouse cable holder among its long list of features.

The Ripjaws MX780 RGB mouse is a logical companion for the keyboard. The MX780 is ambidextrous and has an 8,200-DPI Avago laser sensor. Its LEDs are programmable using G.Skill's unified driver system. It also allows for plenty of physical customization thanks to built-in height adjustment and interchangeable side grips.

Last but not least is the Ripjaws SR910 – Real 7.1 headset. Not content to emulate surround sound, G.Skill packed the SR910 with five neodymium drivers for each ear. The headset also has a noise-canceling mic and a nifty per-channel in-line volume controller.

If you're coming to the BBQ, we'll see you tomorrow! If you're not able to make it, you can check out the live stream right here. We start streaming early in the morning and go late into the night, so you can watch everything from the secret rib production process to the grand finale of the fireworks show live. This year, as long as it's dark enough to see, we'll have the live stream chat projected onto a 120" screen in the yard, so come hang out with us if you can.

    I have purchased G. Skill in 3 system builds and have never had an issue with defective DIMMs. I promote this brand to everyone who asks about computers.

    No on the list, but a long long time ago I got a G.Skill SSD that still works fine to this day for some backup purposes.

    So props to G.Skill and thanks for the donation.

    G.Skill:
    Quality products, incredibly tasteless Asian styling.

      I gotta say I totally agree with you.

      Or is taste entirely cultural and one mans tasteless is another mans taste? I’ve pondered this in how some Asian cultures as you say go for the polar opposite of minimalism.

        It’s definitely a regional taste/cultural difference.

        Given that all of the Asian manufacturers are painfully aware of Apple’s vast popularity advantage in Europe and North America, you’d think they’d tailor their product designs to match the minimalism that makes Apple hardware so sexy to us non-Asians as a basic attempt to increase their sales in a competitive market. That’s capitalist competition 101, right?

        Clearly they don’t get it, because we keep getting “L33T G4M3Rz CYB0R6 N1NJ4 DR460N” designs with more lights, logos, and design accents than you can shake a pointy stick at, so whilst all these Asian brands desperately attempt to soak up the scraps of the marketshare, Apple is outselling everyone else by some sick margins and even sicker markups. People will pay SO MUCH MONEY just to [i<]avoid[/i<] garish asian design and get something tasteful (to non-Asians).

    Saw the Trident brand name and was disappointed that it’s not a video card.

      I might still have my S3 Virge graphics decelerator in a box somewhere.
