2017 Intel Deal
So those of you who know me know I work at a place that gets me access to ridiculous prices on intel products twice a year. This year they are doing something a bit special (probably to compete with you-know-who)

Whats so special about this board? Well, it currently holds the record for the highest 7700k clock on air, water, dice, and ln2. It was specifically designed to go as fast as possible with nothing to distract the user from performance. No wifi, basic connectivity without being sparse, and an "average" sound chip for a board of upper tier pricing. One of the ram slots even was redesigned to a "dimm.2" form factor just to get storage a faster and lower latency connection to the processor. Its going to be a fun year :)

So... you bought this at a super discounted price?

It will be, yes. Alongside a 7700k for like $80.

Wow, I am really disappointed this year. They are trying to push people towards the HEDT chips really fucking hard to the point that the 7700k "deal" isn't even close to a deal.
The apex for 130 though, that's pretty sweet.

Ha, more evidence of intel flipping out from AMD competition.
