Default Gigabyte & G.Skill RAM sponsored build

As some of you may already know I am the President of the Houston-Imports.com Counter-Strike:Source Clan. We hold a bi-monthly LAN party in Houston and have been sponsored by the likes of Gigabyte Technology, G.Skill USA, Nvidia, Bawls Energy Drink & AMD. This time around our August LAN is sponsored by Bawls, Gigabyte and G.Skill. Gigabyte and G.Skill have been gracious enough to provide me with products for testing and this is what I've gotten so far....


Parts List:
Intel C2D E8400 (3.0ghz/6mb/1333fsb)
Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme
Arctic Silver Ceramique
Gigabyte Provided EP45-DS3R motherboard
Gigabyte Provided NX88T512HP Graphics Card (G92 8800GT 512mb)
G.Skill F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ DDR2 800 4-4-4-12
Western Digital 300gb Velociraptor 16mb 10,000rpm
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w
Antec P180B or Lian Li PC-7B

my special E8400


this is a fresh set of D9GMH based DDR2 from G.Skill, this ram is the F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ model from G.Skill otherwise known as 2GBHZ.


This is the velociraptor I'll be using in the build.

Is this an engineering sample? Pre-release version of the EP45-DS3R v1.0?


Here was the included driver disc that worked just fine


So many rear ports! PS2, SPDIF, Optical, Firewire, 8xUSB, 2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports & Realtek 7.1 Audio


2xPCIe 2.0 Ports, 8-pin power, DDR2 1200, 45nm and 1600mhz FSB official support.

That's nice, it's a shame Gigabyte wouldn't part with HD 4870 though!
