Saw the one at Box but they don't have anymore. CCL next cheapest with free delivery.

The HUE+ is amazing and worth about £50 so a nice bit of kit free with the MSI board. The board looks to be cool too, review here: eteknix.com/msi…12/

I have the first HUE kit, very nice, although i have decided to light up behind the desk with it instead, as my PC is currently hidden away.
i think this is a cracking deal! thank you
Got this from box.co.uk, amazing motherboard which is already running my 6600K at 4.8ghz, much much better than the budget boards elsewhere! Can't comment on the HUE+ as I've sold mine instantly for £45 on eBay, but heard it's pretty decent.
can you guys recomend a good gaming set up built arround this board please.
was thinking about the memmory posted the other day?

Depends what games you intend to play and what resolution you wish to play said games at. I'll presume 1080-1440p for now:

MB: MSI Z170 Carbon
CPU: 6600K
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2666 to 3000MHz (sweet-spot for performance/price with Skylake)
VGA: GTX 970 (may as well go with MSI's Gaming 4G version to match the board)
PSU: 500-550W will be fine something like https://www.overclockers.co.uk/seasonic-m12ii-520-evo-520w-80-plus-bronze-power-supply-ca-051-ss.html

Then storage wise up to you really. Personally I'd like a 256GB Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD to slot into the motherboard M.2 slot and then a SSHD for storage.
thanks jimmy, I spent hours in the end trawling through everything. I went for the 660k in the end but was a bit put off by people saying it gets hot and apparently consumes way more power than the 6500 (maybe when overclocking?) and mainly dabs who were the same prices as amazon but offered cash back through tab.
