Weekend Hardware Sales - High-End Motherboard, K70 Keyboard, SFF CPU Cooler

Posted on May 10, 2014

This weekend's sales roundup features a low profile CPU cooler for $20, a Cherry MX Red keyboard at $107, 8GB of 2400MHz RAM for $80, and a high-end AMD AM3+ board for $200. Keep your eyes glued to our Twitter and Facebook feeds for more deals during the week.


ZALMAN CNPS8900 110mm CPU Cooler ($20): This low-profile CPU cooler provides extra cooling in tight spaces and small form factor systems, like the high-end one we just built over here. The current deal stacks a $16 instant savings, 20% promo code (EXLEMCPEPB35 at checkout), and $10 MIR to drop the price of this down from $53 to less than $20.

Corsair Vengeance K70 ($107): Cherry MX Red switches and variable red backlighting are the main features of this mechanical keyboard. It also provides a wrist support, USB port, and an easy-access media control area. With instant savings, the keyboard comes to $107. We highly recommended the K70 as an alternative to the RK-9100x Apollo we just reviewed.

HyperX Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) ($80): The HyperX Beast memory kit comes from the factory with a native frequency of 2400MHz. As APUs are becoming more efficient and prevalent, this RAM should help prevent bottlenecking when using the IGP. The $10 instant savings brings this in at $80.

Pick of the Week

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 ($200):  Gigabyte's high-end UD7 board features the AM3+ socket from AMD with a 990FX chipset. In addition to being able to support 4-way SLI/Crossfire, the board also features Dual-BIOS (a back-up if you brick the first BIOS chip) and Gigabyte's On/Off Charge technology, which pushes more power through the USB port when charging devices. This board is currently 20% off, bringing the price down to an even $200.
