Only if value under £390, otherwise duty is payable and also VAT may be payable.

I wouldn't bother buying from HK, even with the exchange rate, it's still cheaper just to buy from the UK online shops.
Check the price for the component in for UK vs HK.
Then, you judge if you want to take the risk of loosing warranty.

IMO, CPU and RAM may worth consider as they are less likely to require returning

Stick them in your luggage, then unless you are unlucky you will pay nowt.

You are looking at the wrong website, this website shows HDD WD 2tb for $1350, I bought mine for $420. I also bought a kingston a400 240g for $345 and a razer blackwidow chroma V2 for $1160. I got all these prices from price.hk.com, and most products are normally 1 year warranty or more. Still cheaper than the UK

Discard the packaging, and if asked on return you say you took them with you.

VAT on the full amount.
How much do you think you will save in total, assuming you don’t get caught?
How much are easy returns worth to you?
If you bring them back personally the chance of getting caught is extremely low, I'd just do it.

May/June that’s a long time to wait if you have any DOA parts.
Don't worry! As long you are not bringing a large amount of goods they won't be bothered.
