Deals of the week: a high-end Mini-ITX mobo, fast RAM, storage, and more

Howdy, partner. I've been working hard all my life, going 'round and about these hills tending to my herd of buffalos. But ever since the stampede this week, I've taken another occupation to make ends meet and let me have some pocket change for another cowboy hat. I now hunt deals, so take a gander at the game here on my stall. I selected the meatiest cuts just for you.

  • Fancy having a powerful Kaby Lake-powered tiny machine? We have just the mobo for that. The MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon comes in a Mini-ITX form factor and has an M.2 slot, USB 3.1 ports, onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and RGB LED lighting. We reviewed its (much) bigger brother and found it suitable to our tastes. Get this mobo from Newegg for $159.99. There's a $10 rebate card available, too.
     
  • We're doubling down on MSI gear today. Next up, we have the MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB Armor graphics card. It comes with a meaty heatsink with two big fans atop it, and a free copy of Doom. Only $219.99 to begin with at Newegg, and if you take advantage of the $20 rebate card offer, the price comes down to $199.99. Sweet!
     
  • Having only eight gigabytes of slow RAM in your computer these days is just so... démodé. What you really want is a big fat kit of speedy DDR4 memory. Like the G.Skill TridentZ 3000 MT/s 16GB kit, with two 8GB DIMMs and gorgeous heatsinks, and going for only $109.99 at Newegg while stocks last.
     
  • If you just need more capacity and speed, there's the G.Skill TridentZ 3200 MT/s 32GB set with two 16GB DIMMs. This kit is going for $184.99 at Newegg, which is a pretty crazy deal.
     
  • Moving on to terabytes instead of gigabytes, we have the Western Digital Red 4TB NAS hard drive. These 5400-RPM drives are speedy and very quiet, suitable for any home server. Grab one at Newegg for $219.99 with the promo code EMCRCCE27.
     
  • If four terabytes isn't quite enough for your videos of cheese-making, how about the HGST Deskstar NAS 6TB spinner? It's hella-fast with a 7200RPM spindle speed and 128MB of cache. Just $219.99 at Newegg if you use the promotional code FDDEAL0224.
     
  • We saved one of the best deals for last. How about a cheap (but not cheap) no-nonsense mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches and onboard lighting? That's exactly what the G.Skill Ripjaws KM570 is. Only $59.99 at Newegg. Grab it while stocks last.

That's it for today, folks! If you found any sweet online deals that we missed, please share them with your gerbil brethren in the comments section below.
