Intel i7 8700K and Asus Z370-P Prime mobo bundle @ £443.92 / £403.92 with cashback! at Participating Dealers

Found 22nd Jan
Asus are currently doing a cashback promotion on selected CPU and motherboard combinations which include the latest i7 8700K and i5 8600K CPUs and Z370 motherboards. This is a really good deal if you can find the CPU at a discounted price already via one of the dealers below.

The two best combinations I've come across:
  • Intel i7 8700K Retail and Asus Z370-P Prime mobo @ £443.92 (£403.92 with £40 cashback)
  • Intel i5 8600K OEM and Asus Z370-P Prime mobo @ 339.47 (£319.47 with £20 cashback)

I've just bought the i7 8700K retail and Asus Strix Z370-I mini itx bundle for £519.08 (£474.08 with £45 cashback) - this combo retails for£534.99 on most sites.

CPU and motherboard bundles include: i7-8700K, i5-8600K, i7-7820X and i7-5820K

Looking through the T&Cs, it doesn't matter if the CPU is OEM or Retail.

You should post that separately. I'd vote hot for the free games.
How do you save £90 then?

How does the cashbook happen? Do you get an email from the seller with instructions after purchase?

I've managed with an original i7 920 d0 stepping for the last 8 years I've been holding off until Intel released their spec for the coffeelake refresh which just came out, the 8600k and 8700k are still on top.

I think their i9 range will have 8 cores and stack with a z390 motherboard but I think an hex core will be fine for the next 5 years for me personally.

Holding onto my 290X graphics card until nvidia and amd start releasing cards with GDDR6 memory - hopefully the mining hype will cool down by then and prices normalise

You need to submit a claim with Asus and provide them with proof of purchase from one of their approved dealers. You can't submit a claim until 15th Feb via the link attached to this deal.

In the past they used to send the money via cheque, I'm hoping they have started doing transfers now.

Asus will have a Web form that goes live on the 15th Feb, you fill it in with the serial numbers of eligible products, your personal details and upload a valid invoice.

The retailer isn't involved, you get the cashback from Asus, not your retailer. BUT you have to purchase the specifically qualifying items from the selection of qualifying retailers.

Cheers. Picked up what you recommended the 8700k with the prime P. Thanks again.

I've managed with an original i7 920 d0 stepping for the last 8 years


A bit of an aside, if you want a very cheap upgrade have a look at the Xeon X5650 - same socket, but 6 cores / 12 threads. Can get them for £25 off fleabay, and should work with your MB with a BIOS upgrade.
amazing deal op!
I would go for it but honestly I can't justify doing another upgrade as I only did a full build earlier last year and have the i5-6700k which is more than enough for my needs.

This is a great price for anyone looking to upgrade.

I'm same as you I got an i7 920 d0 and been running it at 4GHz since 2009 with Noctua DEH-D14

I upgraded a couple of years back to a GTX970 though which seems great for 1920x1080 gaming

Really like that idea, wish I tried it a few years ago before I decided to upgrade!

Bet they'd still want £10 delivery.
Voted hot as it is a good deal for this particular setup. However given that Intel wouldnt let you use the 8700k in a Z270 motherboard despite it being practically the same I have my doubts over the future. So personally won't be buying and might go for a AM4 based system soon.

Yeah I can see why you'd be ****** at Intel with the z270 - the z370 is a retrofit to quickly support the hex design.

I'm disappointed in this half way model, they should have gone straight to the z390 and release the 8 core support and USB 3.1 gen 2 with the coffeelake launch.

For me it's not a game changer though, I can always upgrade the motherboard in a few years to support the extra features - the 8700K should easily last 5 years.

with RAM and GPU prices at what they are right now, what are you doing for the rest of your setup?

I’m regretting selling my £600 2016 build, building that same thing now would cost x1.5 the cost

This offer can be used with this posted offer hotukdeals.com/dea…376

I managed to get Corsair 3200 DDR4 16GB ram for £130 second hand which will be suffice for my needs. I've also bought a SF600 PSU which are currently a good price on amazon at £91.99 (It's a mini itx build, everything costs a premium for the size!)

I'll hold off on a graphics card for now, I've noticed a few pre-order 1080ti GPUs that are back down to RRP which is a start. I'm hoping the cryptomining hype starts to cool down soon, might even be cheaper to wait for Nvidia 1180s pre-orders at this rate

Hindsight is a *****, could have made a lot of money on DDR4 and Vega cards! This mining fad has gone silly and when it crashes, we'll have a lot of cards flooding the market for cheap - impacting AMD/Nvidia in other ways which will no doubt hit the consumer, again. Strange times we live in...
Which one would you suggest out of these 2

Is there much of a difference between Motherboards and if so what? Sorry if this seems a daft question but first PC Build

I would definitely go for the TUF version, you get a lot more value for money such as USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, Intel network port and Customs DTS audio support for gaming headsets.

Both boards are very good but the TUF model has the edge. You can compare them via asus.com/uk/…re/
One of the retailers (aria) and their ASUS rep say it's for the retail CPU's only, not OEM (contradicting at least one retailer listing I have seen)

[edit] I have contacted ASUS direct and will relay any information

**Just read through the terms and conditions on ASUS and doesn't mention anywhere about OEM or Retail CPU. Also mentions bundles so can't see them not honouring the cashback**

Noticed last night that Scan are selling the OEM CPU with their bundle. Not bought it yet but will need to reconsider if the cashback isn't eligible because of this. They have the cashback offer plastered all over the bundle deals so will be disappointed if ASUS say its no eligible.

Yea, I'm looking at an OEM CPU that has Total Warhammer 2 + Assassins Creed Origins and is £10 cheaper than the retail, so whatever they say will certainly affect my purchase. Was hoping to order today to have it for the weekend, but I can't see that happening now

Did you hear anything back from Asus? I emailed their promotions inbox a few days ago asking if both motherboard and CPU have to be purchased from the same retailer but not had a reply yet.
Just had a response from Asus:

Hello,
thanks for your email.

Both products can be bought from different participating dealers, as long as they are located in your participating promotion area.

Best Regards,

Your ASUS Promotion-Team



Has anybody received cashback from this promotion? I've heard nothing and the promotion pages look to have disappeared.
