its probably like fry's and they only advertise a huge sale when it's almost out of existence.

 

they had z87-gd45 for only 15 dollars

Not a huge sale though. It's normal.

Read the fine print. That pricxe is after the $30 savings from buying an FX chip with it (Micro Center offer bundle deals) and the $10 manufacturer's rebate.

Its actually $15 but you have to buy a fx chip first. Its only $5 after the mail in rebate which took 3 months for me. I used this bundle when building a pc for my robotics team. I bundled it with a 6300 and only paid 5 bucks for the mobo which is a pretty good deal. Its a decent board but has the ugliest uefi I have ever seen.

The $5 price is after the rebate and when you buy select CPUs with it, its not a $5 mobo + rebate.

I doubt it is the latest revision, but why not find out? :P I use one that's the latest revision (6.0) in my other rig with a 8120.

It is, I took advantage of this deal and got the 6.0 version(and that was a long time ago even). They just use an old picture because Microcenter is never up to date, lol.

Great board, pair with an FX 6300 and a good cooler and you can get the sucker up to 4Ghz+ no problem. Have been using it in my main for over 2 years now and could not be happier :D 


I've only used air cooling, my old signature was a lie ❤️

Read carefully bro. You only get it for 5 bucks when purchasing it with a qualified Processor (which is all the amd ones.....). They also have a discount for intel too on top of the fact that they have the lowest prices on intels Ive seen.

Making money off of the rebate and the sale. Genius.
