MSI UK Offering Free Corsair H75 Cooler And Cashback With Z97 Gaming Boards

MSI UK Offering Free Corsair H75 Cooler And Cashback With Z97 Gaming Boards

MSI's Gaming range includes the Gaming 3,5,7 and 9 as well as a mini-ITX model. The Gaming 5 and Gaming 7 have been singled out to include the perks

MSI UK will be offering potential buyers of its Gaming 5 and Gaming 7 Intel Z97-based motherboards cashback and free cooling gear when they go on sale.

The Gaming 7 will be bundled with a Corsair Hydro Series H75 cooler (see out review of it here) plus two corsair AF120 Red LED 120mm Fans, worth £80, with the fans matching the red detailing on the Gaming motherboard for some added pizazz.

The Gaming 5, which we expect will do battle with Asus' Maximus VII Ranger and Hero in the sub £150 price bracket, will come with the option of applying for 20 per cent cashback (likely to be in the region of £20-30), with MSI stating the final board price will be just under £100.

To take advantage of the Corsair offer with the Gaming 7, you'll need to purchase your board from OcUK, Scan, Ebuyer or CCL and the promotion will be available from the moment the boards land on etailer's shelves (we suggest paying close attention to your favourite etailer over the next 5 days or so, maybe...) The offer will be limited to 100 pieces only.

The Gaming 5 cashback promotion starts on the first working day after the official Z97 launch day (again we suggest paying close attention to bit-tech over the next few days) and will be processed through the following main MSI partners - OcUK, Scan, Ebuyer, CCL, Aria, Box, Novatech and Dabs

Are you planing on buying a Z97 board once they're in the shops? Let us know in the forum.

Damn I just bought an H105 and two SP120 fans while waiting for the Z97 boards to come out ! Oh well i'm only looking for mini ITX boards just now so no big loss really. What a bargain for anyone looking at a normal ATX build though !

BT - The Dabs link takes you to Novatech.

OK, I was going to order stuff for my new Z97 build in June, but this is too good a deal to miss out on, so I'll order the Gaming 7 bundle on Monday.

It's going to be torture having a shiny new Mobo & water cooler just sitting there for a month.with no CPU to go in it though.((

Nice one Hustler :D The new CPUs are hopefully worth waiting for - with the better core/IHS attachment I'm hoping for Sandy Bridge overclocking and thermals but we'll see :D If you're desperate you could pick up a pentium - they're less than £40 at some places atm. Then keep as a spare or sell it.

Actually I was planning to buy a MSI Z87 MITX board before the tangible news of the new Z97 boards became a close reality. And I do actually prefer these to the top end ASUS boards just now, Tasty - Hell Yeah!

Sadly rumors say the vanilla Haswell refresh isn't all we may have hoped.

it can be noted that the Core i7-4790 shows just about 3-5% performance increase over Haswell Core i7-4770K with the former having the ability to overclock as well
I'm not even sure they are using the better core/IHS attachment on the non K series.

You mean in terms of raw performance increase - well maybe not but till we get our mits on the we won't know for sure- but they didn't test a K-series chip. It's the overclocking potential I was referring to ;) Also there's little need for better thermal transfer for non K-series CPUs - it's only when you're gunning for high overclocks, ie 4.4GHz and above that heat can build up.
