MSI’s Z170A GAMING M7 Launches With A Cool Limited Offer

Intel’s Skylake CPUs makes their debut today in the form of the Core i5 6600K and Core i7 6700K, both unlocked for your overclocking pleasure, but naturally you’ll also need a new Z170 motherboard to pair with them. MSI are releasing a full range of ‘boards based on the Z170 chipset, even the breadth of features throughout the range deciding between them, never mind the plethora of other Z170 manufacturer designs, is more than a little daunting.

Furthermore, an upgrade may be a little pricier than you might think: a lesser known Skylake fact is that boxed, retail K-Series CPUs no longer come bundled with an Intel cooler. Of course normally you’d be replacing the stock cooler with something a little more high performance anyway, but for now 3rd-party cooling has moved from the ‘preferable’ to the ‘mandatory’ column. Well, perhaps MSI can tempt you with a highly limited offer, exclusive to UK customers of the Z170A GAMING M7.

In a repeat of last year’s Z97 launch, MSI are offering a special deal to ease some of the upgrade woes as well as get the most for your new combination of CPU and motherboard. The first 150 to pick up an MSI Z170A GAMING M7 motherboard, from any one of the participating retailers, will also get Cooler Master’s Nepton 120XL AIO Watercooler. That’s £70 of high performance cooling value which you can now offset against more RAM, a new SSD, or in your back pocket for a rainy day.

With the Cooler Master’s Nepton 120XL AIO in your arsenal you’ll be able to overclock your Intel Skylake CPU well beyond the stock specifications, all the while enjoying the premium features of the Z170A GAMING M7 including OC Engine, Xtreme Audio DAC and GAME BOOST dial-in overclocking.

Stock is arriving at retailers over the course of Thursday and Friday; if you don’t spot the offer immediately be sure to check back at your preferred retailer regularly. The offer can be found at OCUK, SCAN, eBuyer, Dabs, Novatech, CCL and Box, and is limited to 150 pieces total. Be quick when you spot availability!
