All good things must come to an end, and that includes TR's 12 days of Christmas giveaways. The winner of our final giveaway—drum roll, please—is Jared Hohman. He's the proud new owner of a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 Xtreme Gaming graphics card and a GA-X99-UD3P motherboard. Congratulations, Jared, and look for a message soon from our business guy, Adam Eiberger, with instructions on how to claim your prize. Many thanks again to Gigabyte for helping us cap off our twelve days of giveaways with that great prize package.

More thanks are in order, too. Our 12 days of Christmas giveaways was a huge event, and we're grateful to the sponsors that helped make it possible. Thanks again to AMD, Corsair, EVGA, Gigabyte, Monoprice, and OCZ for helping to brighten the holiday seasons of 12 lucky gerbils. In case you missed a day or two, here's a rundown of what we gave away:

    Would be nice to know, did anyone miss out because of a wrong answer or not responding in time?

    I won nothing, my computer took a dump, requiring me to reset Windows 10, I’ve got to download and reinstall all my stuff, the (x86)program files folder got erased in the windows.old folder, and to top it all off, I barely have 5 minutes away from the shop vac, as I suck up gallons of water just seeping up through the floor and pouring like a waterfall from air ducts in the furnace room…

    Not my best Christmas weekend… 12 inches of water in 2 days… Ugh.

    Thank you TR for setting all this up and bringing a little extra Christmas Cheer! Congratulations to the winners!

    Congrats to all the winners! I’m sure your Christmas has been a little bit more special. Not too excited about mech keyboards but I think those SSDs, motherboards, graphics cards and that sole CPU given away are pretty sweet. Make sure you winners give them a good licking before installing them!

    Speaking of CPUs, screw you Intel for being such a scrooge! If poor ol’ AMD can give away a nice FX chip to help keep a gerbil warm this winter, I bet you guys can give away at least a Core i5 with all your bajillions! But nooo!!! All the Intel board winners here are left out in the cold! Kudos to AMD for being the proverbial poor old woman who still gives a few pennies despite her misery!

    I hate not winning in a Grouchy Smurf way.

    WOOOOT this makes my weekend better. Christmas Eve I woke up to news of flooded basement, it was only about 1/4-1/2″ but it went through garage and onto carpet we need to now replace. BEST NEWS EVER!!!

    I can confirm the answer was 5.

    Congratulations to all the winners. Some pretty sweet prizes.

    I just want to know what the correct answer was for the quiz question.

    PS/Edit – I answered 5. I think it would be appropriate for contest purposes for TR to at least state what the correct answer was, now that it’s all over.

      Me too! Given that I wasn’t selected for any I’m worried that I got it wrong. I put 5.

        • nerdrage

        I answered 5 as well.

          I somehow got 6. Maybe I should change my name to.. HODOR? HODOR!

      Until everyone has replied and been verified as valid winners, the game ain’t over.

      i got the same, 5. who knows. they never post the answers, so it’s hard to say. i really didn’t have a whole lot of time to fool around trying to find more hits.
