10K Challenge - Winner Announcement

Hello builds.gg Members!

The builds.gg 10K Challenge has come to an end. Over 3,000 builds and nearly 20,000 voters took part for their share of not only $10,000 in cash from CableMod, but a trove of hardware prizes from eleven industry sponsors. In fact, over 650,000 votes were cast over the duration of the contest!

Without further ado, here are your official cash prize winners:

$5000 - Aeris Lignea by Josh Lambeth
$3000 - AXE-R by neSSa
$2000 - ROBO RONE by Diego Gutierrez

Given the sheer number of awesome builds entered, we couldn't just leave it at that. Our friends at CableMod have generously agreed to chip in two additional $500 cash prizes! These honorary mentions were chosen by CableMod staff for their creativity, innovation, and overall badassery:

$500 - Toaster PC Mk. I by DesignSynthetics
$500 - The Mahogany Desk, an all custom, watercooled, dream machine by Husky Bongs

We're sure you'll agree that these builds brought something awesome to the table. ;-)

You can see the full list of winners, including the winners from the random draw prizes, on the contest page.

Cash prizes will sent out to the winners in the next few of days. For the hardware prizes, all winner shipping information will be forwarded to the sponsors so that they can arrange shipment.

Going forward, we are already hard at work on new contests for our members. We have listened intently to your feedback, and will implement a number of rules changes for our contests in the future. Check back tomorrow for a news post about the changes we are about to make.

We are absolutely floored by the response you guys have had to our first contest. A huge thank you goes out to our generous sponsors that helped make the 10K Challenge a reality.

Congratulations to all our winners, and stay tuned for more exciting contests right here on builds.gg!

Sincerely,
The builds.gg Team
