Hi all,
This in stock, showing over 50 units (unlike my last deal!), and while it's not an exceptional price, there is:
1. £20 cash back from MSI (ends 1st March), plus
2. £25 cash back from MSI for completing a review (ends 11:59 on 5th Feb, review to be done between 15-30 days after purchase), plus
3. A free game 'For Honor' worth around £40 retail price (game released 14th Feb, redemption ends 18th April), plus
4. 2.2% topcashback too.
If the cash back all comes in, then this mobo works out at around £117 plus a free game, which seems a decent deal.

how will the review cashback deadline be calculated, is it from when you order it or when it arrives?

Good deal, might be tricky to get the review cashback though.

For the review cash back, the purchase has to be made by tomorrow, and the review submitted between 15-30 days after purchase (I believe) ... there are detailed terms to be read!
Agree it may be a bit tricky to get!

Having read it, I don't think the cashback will stack but it's still a good deal with 1 cashback and the game.

Sadly, the Asus Z170i pro gaming is still a much better board from a much better brand - despite being a year old. It sells for less than this.

Not much of anything has changed between Z170 and Z270 including processor support.

I bought mine for £92 on Amazon (after £20 asus mail in rebate) in feb of 2016!

Sorry wouldn't touch at this price not to mention all the issues including power issues with these boards with both gigabyte and msi overvolting issues.

msi z270 boards offer hdmi 2.0. all other brands and all other chipsets only offer hdmi 1.4 so if your building a htpc thrn msi z270 is the only choice available

How to get the £20 cash back from MSi ?

I'm only aware of review methods for cash back.
#10
At its price point it's a steal !

I was waiting for the Asus z270i but for £200- no thanks !

My motherBoard is setup and rock solid. Have been gaming the Division at 1440P ultra high settings locked at 60FPS. It's butter smooth and no crashes etc of any kind. No OC as yet as I don't need the extra power right now.

The YouTube mentioned voltages issues can be an issue Overclocking but it is something that can and will be addressed by MSI. They have already got three bios releases and from
Previous experience I know they will keep
I'm supporting and upgrading bios.

Also Asus is infamous for RMA issues. On the other hand MSI are based in Staines uk and a lot more helpful.

Plus Three months extra warranty for completing a quick survey after registering.

I'd like to know that too
#12
If i buy this today which is the last day of the promotion, i can review it until after the promotion ends. So would the review not count for cashback?

After seeing the review, it does look like the motherboard could cause potential problems. Thanks for the heads up.

Interested in this but the T&C for the Review cashback are complicated for me.
Seems you had to buy it, install and review it in the first two weeks, then wait 2 weeks to claim.
Review has to be 'live' before midnight tonight
#16
You have to read the terms, the review has to posted after 15 days from purchase (which has to be made by today), but before 30 days.

Firstly apologies for this long boring post, but unsure of the 15 days

Yes and buried in there is this: "Claimant can only claim for cashback once 15 days have passed since the time of purchase".

You have to be a flippin lawyer just to get some cash back!

Yeah, cheers, it seems so, but this may cancel that out.

I think it 15 days is to counter people getting cash back on products than returning.
