    Do people from distant countries like Bangladesh ever win these things? Would be nice to know who wins in the end. Although I'd understand if they were trying to protect people's identity, could they just tell us where the winner is from?

    In all honesty, what is actually the chance of someone from Bangladesh winning? Even if someone did, would he really be taken as a winner and the whole thing would legit be shipped to Bangladesh?

    I've now had two Intel QVLC SSDs and I have to recommend you stay away from them. They;re popular because they're cheaper than the competition and still from a "name brand " but they hit an absolute performance wall if you're moving large files, installing windows, or if it's low on space. PCPer did a review of their first gen NVME drives (I think they're just called the 600p) and showed that in lots of common scenarios they have slower write speeds then mechanical drives, and I hit that problem fairly regularly when I had one. I have a 660p now, hoping they had resolved the issue, but they have not. Once you fill that SLC cache it's painful.

    I want a best pc experience under $3000 (like: what monitor that give's best optimal performance to GPU power and soundcard that gives immersive sound experience with best headset or speaker). I want something that is well balanced and gets 100% performance Monitor-GPU & CPU, Soundcard-Headset or Speaker (either 7.1 or Dolby atmos or something) without unnecessary features that is for shows and I don't use (RGB for example).

    I'm guessing that RGB components are rated a bit lower because of potential software issues, so that's why this had little RGB.

    RGB is definitely a non-factor for the normal DIY builders... it is basically being promoted by the manufacturers and some idiot youtubers for their share. I've built like dozens of system as professional system builders and as a hobbyist, only 10-15% were RGBed as per the customer request.

    I ordered a Noctua DH-15 cooler, listed as compatible for Intel LGA1151 socket, and it only came with AMD mounting hardware in the box, from NewEgg. Using 2 different bracket sets, and one of them mounted up-side-down, I managed to just about line up the holes with the LGA1151 socket holes, and made it work. Long story short; BEWARE online hardware purchases. Returns and RMA are the biggest pain in the ass, so much so, it's often not worth going through.
