Hello and welcome to the EK 10K Challenge on builds.gg, brought to you by EK Water Blocks!
The EK 10K Challenge looks for the best PC builds on the Internet. The builds.gg community will vote on the entered builds, and there will be $10,000 USD of prize money for the top 3 builds participating in the contest.
Thanks to noblechairs, Endgame Gear, Performance PCs, Crucial, Thermal Grizzly, EK Water Blocks, and CableMod, there is also a massive selection of hardware prizes that will be awarded to random people who have voted on builds during the contest.
To enter this contest with your build, you need to first login or sign up. Then, simply prepare and publish your build!
The contest is based on the number of votes each build receives. The three builds with the most votes at the end of the contest will share $10,000 USD in prize money. The prize distribution will be as follows:
First Place: $5,000 USD
Second Place: $3,000 USD
Third Place: $2,000 USD
Don’t even have a build to enter into the contest? You can still win! By simply voting for your favorite builds, you will be entered into a random draw for a ton of awesome hardware prizes, graciously provided by our hardware partners. Here's a list of prizes that are up for grabs:

To qualify for our participation prizes, simply vote on at least 10 builds that are entered into the contest. Every 10 builds you’ve reviewed (either by voting or by passing) counts as one ballot, and each person can earn up to a maximum of 100 ballots. The more you vote, the more chances you have to win!
Everyone who has entered a build into the contest, and has not won any of the previous prizes, will receive 5 ballots towards this random draw.
