Asustek Computer on Friday announced a major promotion that it will be running together with Intel. From now on and until the 7th of July it will be possible to get up to £35 cash back when you purchase an Asus mainboard based on the Intel Z97 core-logic as well as an Intel Core i-series unlocked processor.
To save money on your new desktop, you should buy an Asus Z97-series motherboard as well as an Intel Core i7-4770K or an Intel Core i5-4670K processor from one of the qualified resellers and then register on a special web-site to claim your cash back. The two companies will return £35 to those, who buy the Core i7-4770K processor, and £30 to those, who prefer the Core i5-4670K.
The qualified resellers are Aria PC, Box.co.uk, Dabs.com, Ebuyer.com, Eclipse Computers, Novatech, Overclockers UK, Scan Computers and Yoyo Tech.
More information on this promo campaign can be located here.
While Asus and Intel do not offer discounts on the latest Devil’s Canyon microprocessors, the previous-generation chips are based on the same Haswell micro-architecture as the new CPUs, they provide great performance out-of-the-box and can also be overclocked. If you do not plan to boost performance to the max, but will be satisfied with “good enough” overclocking, then the deal may make sense to you.
Keep in mind that the campaign lasts only till the 7th of July.

KitGuru Says: While the current offer lasts for a limited amount of time, note that resellers and Intel want to get rid of the “old” Haswell central processing units. Therefore, discounts on the Intel Core i7-4770K and the Intel Core i5-4670K processors are quite possible going forward.
