From Dec. 13 at 4:00 p.m. PT through Dec. 18, shoppers can head to www.eBay.com/HyperX to browse charity auctions featuring incredible gaming inventory, such as autographed HyperX products and bundles like the Ultimate PC Gaming Bundle, which includes the HyperX Quadcast, Pulsfire Surge and Cloud Alpha S.
