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.
