    It was a blast showing you around Huaqiangbei, Linus! Thanks for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule. Turns out my editor already has a decent editing rig, so I'll be giving this PC away to a lucky fan in an upcoming video. If you're interested in winning this PC (and some cool and rare Strange Parts swag) definitely keep an eye out for that video.

    I am always baffled that I can get absolutely anything for a very good price on asian online markets. On the other hand on western online markets you usually only get expensive gadgetary and never ever rare cheap components. When I tried to buy 2,5mm ribbon crimped cables in the west it was like "50 cent per cable, minimum 100 cables" - i ordered 400 cables for €7 from a well known chinese site. Same for USB cables to connect a mainboard to a backbracket - none at all in the west, 20 pieces did cost €10 in china, same for slightly special drive bays, replacement fans for my 1070... seriously, i only invest like 2min to search in the west because in the east I can get everything faster, with more choice and a lot cheaper.

    Linus, here is a tip, generally speaking places like this in China are run buy small business renting a booth and most thing in there are over-priced to begin with, but the buyer knows that peopel are gonna bargain and they just act like they are nice and accept a way cheaper price without much going back and forth. And i would have to say 80% of the product there are fake, because large manufacturer have or had factories in China and most of these factory will just do small "underground" business with other factories for extra benefits(money) to give out tech or non too essential secret about a product and let the other smaller factory to make a duplicate of the product to sell. Since they cannot sell it on a big market cause their product will get found out, so they go straight to places like this to sell. And it is part of the reason why they are generally cheaper after so called bargain.

My 12 year old son could have built a PC that would rock out with it's cock out for half that budget. Paid more than they quoted you for the Ryzen that they had to go get somewhere else. God bless you kinda got robbed and your a good man! That PC should rock actually.
