As part of a team building exercise, the team's goal was to build a system from available parts with the following goals in mind:
- Team work: everyone on the team must contribute to the build
- Build design: component selection & overall cleanliness of the build
- Speed of build: 4 hrs 30 mins was the maximum time allowed to complete the build
- Speed of system
- Cable management

The team was competing against team" Revenge of the Nerds" whose build log is here:

Here is a shot of the parts that were available to the team:

Thanks - it would be ideal to take more time and do some customer sleeving.

The team is going to get another week to do some additional tuning, overclocking, & cable management - not sure if they will decide to tackle sleeving during this time as well
