Probably this is worth it, though personally I would never pay so much for a motherboard however flash it looked (^ ^). This bundle includes an I5 CPU and a 256 Intel SSD (while stocks last, they say)
You may be able to get £30 cashback from MSI (see comment by phillipgeorge)

Probably not so much to save on here - It's about the right price for the Z270/7600k Bundle. I'd say the real deal is in the free SSD, but if it really is whilst stocks last then this could be pretty average by the time stocks expire.

I paid £250 for my last motherboard, but in fairness it was a workstation model with dual socket 2011s, 8 DIMMs, like 7 x PCI-E 16x, 14 SATA ports etc: Asus Z9PE-D8 WS

Not sure why a regular desktop board's worth that much.

So buy now

This seems like a good deal, I think I might go for this.
Ive waited too long lol I had a look online and can see that if you were to buy this motherboard and cpu seperate from elsewhere then its working out at £429. I looked elsewhere for a similar bundle and found a Gigabyte z270 +intel i5 7600k one thats overclocked and ready to go for £389.99, but that is just motherboard and cpu, no ram or ssd.

Hmm Im thinking its better to go with this one and claim a free SSD.

MSI Boards good?

Seems to be an MSI deal - you can buy an M5 or M7 board and it comes with the SSD (while stocks last) because Novatech have the same offer without the I5 but with the SSD

​This deal doesn't include RAM. I'd say your i7 deal sounds like a better deal long term - Where'd you see it?

I didnt mention RAM? I made a typo , it was an i5 bundle.

The other deals I looked at was just the motherboard+cpu bundle, no ram or ssd. However I have noticed that the free SSD offer is from MSI, so for those that dont need a new cpu then they could go to novatech, amazon or any other site and buy the motherboard and claim the ssd from MSI.

I also looked again at buying seperate but still working out to cost more. Box.co.uk seems to be the best price for both the cpu and motherboard together.

​Google says here, it's an i5 though. On my keyboard t is next to 5! z270 and i5

ordered, cheers op!

Any good cooler to recommend for the i5 7600k? I could use my old hyper 212+, it is huge. But would look to buy something new if there is something better in terms of being more quieter with better cooling.
Any good suggestions?

really? Can't be that bad

£193.99 for mobo on overclockers.co.uk
£213.99 for cpu oem on overclockers.co.uk
Total: £407.98
You save £7.99 if bought separately.
NVMe SSD Value: £79.99 on overclockers.co.uk
Read 1570MB/s, Write 540MB/s

Overall, a £88.98 saving if you desire all 3 items.
An 18.2% discount.

Not bad, but just so you know, every retailer has this M5 mobo promotion which gives out an SSD. It's not exclusive to Box.
Overclockers.co.uk, Novatech.co.uk also have this promotion, where if you buy the mobo, MSI will send you a free SSD.

Box are the ones who seem to be bundling them together, and make it sound like it's them who are giving out a free SSD for this bundle purchase.

Here I still rocking my 3570k. I'm tempted but I just can't do it yet.

MSI support is crap. In fact, it's non-existent. There is no end-user RMA procedure, unlike most of their major competitors. If something fails under warranty and it falls outside the retailer period of responsibility, be very careful who you buy from, as you could have the devil of a time getting it repaired, or replaced otherwise.

Out of interest, where did you buy it from? Can't seem to source that board anywhere near that price?

To be fair no worse than Razer charging twice the price for the pretty lights on Chroma editions. I don't see the point of lighting up stuff you're not looking at like a night club but some love it.

It's why for less than a tenner extra you are better going with the likes of overclockers that will honour manufacturer warranties right out to their end dates, they've even done exchanges for me in the past for entirely different products where the manufacturer didn't produce anything equivalent anymore.

Plus given the ssd is coming from MSI no guarantee you will get one in the least.

guys which ssd is better to use, crucial mx300 or intel 600p?

Nah just a normal SSD.
Thanks for the link on my other comment, Ive already read that and seen some others too. Seems to be mixed reviews on it.

I'm cancelling this anyway. Full 4K is more important to me than the intel ssd. I never thought to check this and assumed it would all be upto date with current standards as its a very new board etc.

Oh well, the hunt continues.

The issue isn't the motherboard for the 4K over HDMI, it's also the integrated GPU on the 7600K; it only supports HDMI 1.4, which won't do full 4K60. You can do it with an adaptor to go from DP to HDMI 2.0, the adaptors are about £30 on Amazon.

Call me old fashioned, but surely no-one would seriously contemplate using the motherboard graphics! You would fit a proper graphics card

Second hand on ebay. Tbh looking back I should have just bought a used dell workstation, probably would have been cheaper. Suspect it was being sold cheap because 4 of the 8 DIMM slots do not work.

I bought this motherboard about a week ago. The free SSD drive has been shipped out already. You simply claim from their website. It's a great motherboard.

I paired mine with a 6700k as I was able to buy that CPU second hand for £220 so saw no reason to buy a Kaby lake for considerably more.

MSI have also emailed me a £30 cash back offer for the motherboard. I paid £200 for the board and once you factor in the £30 cash back and £80 SSD it adds up to great value if you can get it.

​I didn't have a problem getting a 2.5yr old motherboard replaced by MSI under 3 year warranty. I did get 3 faulty ones back, but it was eventually fixed. Lol
