How do msi motherboards and their bios compare with asus?

Each retailer only has a certain number of free drives allocated so you may buy the board and not get the drive. OP a link to a retailer would be a good start. Im torn ive saved £750 for CPU, board and Ram which is easily enough for a i7 and a £200 motherboard and 32gb ram my only problem is i think intel are robbing us the new i7 is around £50 more than the older one and the only difference is a 200mhz bump in speed that any idiot can do within 2 seconds. Im waiting for Ryzen before i make the decision but the moneys burning a hole in my pocket, I missed the Asus Hero board last week because im trying to wait and looking back im kicking myself and should of grabbed one at the time.

Ive always had Asus boards even going back to the AMD Athlon 64 from 12 years ago and have always liked the MSI and this is a very nice board but i stick with Asus as ive never had a board go wrong in all that time. At the minute i have a Asus ROG Ranger with a 4690k in it and this rig has been overclocked since day one and i never turn it off its always put into sleep mode and its never missed a beat. Sorry for my life story

256gb


I recall reading on Tom's Hardware site that there might be a potential issue with life span (or how much data could be stored on these drives before they committed suicide) but looks like Intel later revised the endurance rating by a factor of two (now up to 144TB for the 256Gb version), so probably not an issue for the majority. These are entry level NVMe SSD drives.

my msi board recently went kapuut and took my 4 ddr4 sticks with it. and tried to warranty claim from msi and they wanted me to send it in with my own expense for a refurbished one. In netherland btw. stick to asus or gigabyte.

Heat added, thanks for posting good deal

dont mack me off

Isn't it the same for all TLC SSDs? It does come with a 5 year warranty

Limit seems to vary though.

as far as i can see the drives are claimed from msi, as a result there would be no point adding any retailer.​

God I **** hate MSI promos, make you jump through so many hoops with **** customer service. Plus there's a big chance of it not even going through, I know from their black friday MSI RX 480 promo

looks like these Intel SSD 600P 256gb are worth £80 on amazon, take fees from ebay etc and your effectively getting a new z270 motherboard for £60 off you sell it on ebay, good deal

I was taken aback when the instructions were to cut out the label from the graphic card box. I just took a photo instead of cutting out the label from the box. Hope it goes through. It did say to allow for 10 weeks processing time though. Would be another couple of months for me to wait.

delivery?



​i would assume so.... (_;) isnt that how you get your goods from online retailers? sorry but really dont understand the question. are you asking if they do delivery? or how much is delivery? or method of delivery? it would really be helpful if you were a bit more consice with your question, also i have only given a heads up on the deal, which is why i didnt include retailers and only gave the scan link because someone asked where could they get one for that price?. as for specific retailers, well thats you guys job to find the one you prefer.

With this site it is normal to include the cost of delivery. You stated it was £2 cheaper than the £195 queried by ChiefWA2 but that didn't take into account the cost of delivery so that wasnt really true. Didnt think it needed much explanation but obviously wrong.

Original Poster

but as i hadn't stated a retailer due to it being a m/f promo, then i could not put in a delivery price, hence why i did not. its only customary to put a delivery price in with the post if its a specific retailer, the price was simply put there as a rough guide as to why i thought it was a good deal, as ive said its then up to the consumer which retailer they use to fulfill this deal.

You need think no longer, and be rest assured and safe in the knowledge that Intel are indeed robbing you. There is zero noticeable real world difference between the 6700k and 7700k, so congratulations on your "new" purchase.

Ordered the MSI Pro Gaming Carbon Z270 a day before they announced this, was gonna send it back but contacted MSI and they said that the M2 SSD's get shipped on the 15th of each month, but for January orders it will be February. So be warned if you're getting this as part of a new build you wont receive the SSD for a while!
