Box.UK Is Having A Sale On One of Intel’s Latest Processors And Other Hardware
One of the main selling points of consoles over gaming PCs is that consoles are, as a general rule, a bit cheaper than a PC, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to afford a decent PC. If you keep your eyes open, you can find some pretty good deals. For example Box.UK currently offers a bundle featuring a MSI Z270 Gaming M5 motherboard, an Intel Core i5-7600K CPU, and, while supplies last, 256GB Intel SSD 600P for 400 Euro or $427.75 USD.
Purchased together those would cost you roughly 500 Euros ($567.75) so it’s a pretty good deal. You’ll need to a buy a cooler to go with it, but you can find a decent one at a fairly reasonable price.
Both the MSI Z270 Gaming M5 motherboard and the Intel Core i5-7600K processor are brand new so you’re definitely getting your money’s worth as far as they’re concerned. The I5-7600k is VR ready, features a base speed of 3.8Ghz and a boost speed of 4.2Ghz.
The Intel 600P is a bit older than the other two components. It was released last year, but it’s still a good piece of hardware that delivers strong performance while taking up less room than a SATA SSD. Most reviews say it’s a fairly fast drive, but there have been some outliers complaining that it is too slow. Then again, you’re getting it for free so it is still a good deal even if it isn’t perfect.
This deal is currently available through Box.UK and they do not ship to Europe or the North Americas so this deal is only good if you live in the UK. That being said, if you do happen to live in the UK, it’s a pretty good deal. As of this writing, there were 19 of these bundles in stock.
