Deals of the week: a mighty PSU, mid-range CPUs, and more


— 11:40 AM on April 21, 2017

Greetings, gerbils! This is where I'd write something funny, stupid, or both... if I had anything today. We're buzzing bees at TR HQ right now, so all I have time to say is: here's deals. You buy, now.

  • Wiser men than us (not a tall bar to clear) have said that "the key to happiness is a good PSU." And few are better than the Seasonic Platinum SS-860XP2. As its name implies, this beastly power supply will serve up to 860W across its fully-modular cabling and has an 80 Plus Platinum efficiency rating. Seasonic offers seven years of warranty coverage on this unit, too. Grab one of these from Newegg for $119.99 after promo code EMCSRECB2. As if that wasn't good enough, you can take advantage of a $30 MIR, as well.
     
  • Mechanical keyboards with customizable rainbow lighting are an appealing prospect, but the high price tags associated with them dampen gamers' enthusiasm quite often. That won't be a problem today, though. The G.Skill KM570 RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches is selling at Newegg for only $79.99 if you use code EMCRECB37. We've historically liked the company's clicky offerings, and we think you'll be happy with the KM570.
     
  • Release the cores! The Ryzen 7 1700 CPU is one of the AMD CPU lineup's best offerings. Eight cores and sixteen threads, and a maximum turbo frequency of 3.7 GHz, plus another 100 MHz from XFR. What's not to like? Only $319.99 at Newegg provided you use promo code 0418YBYWA10.
     
  • There have been recent price drops on some of Intel's best mid-range CPUs. Maybe something's aRyzen, dunno. The Core i7-7700K is currently going for $327.99 at Newegg with promotional code EMCRECR23. Meanwhile, the Core i5-7600K currently sells for $228.99 with the code EMCRECR24. That's darn good value for a gaming system right there.
     
  • CoolerMaster's MasterCase 5 has been a TR favorite for a while, and we're more than happy to report that there's a sale on it. Newegg will hand you one in exchange for a mere $84.99. You get a $15 rebate card in the deal, too.
     
  • What do we say to the god-that-ends-hard-drive-deals? Not today. The HGST Deskstar 4TB NAS drive is going for $139.99 at Newegg with code EMCRECB24. Four terabytes of 7200-RPM spinning storage, 128MB of cache, and firmware whose NCQ actually works as intended. Doesn't get much better.
     
  • "Piffle, boring old desktops," you say. Fine! Here's an iPad Mini 4 with 128GB of storage for $349.99 at Best Buy. How do you like them apples?
     
  • We're topping our deals off with a slightly different offering. The Yamaha RX-V581 is a 7.2 home theater receiver with support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, HDR, Bluetooth, and enough other acronyms to fill a military manual. It'll easily run 80W per channel, enough to fill most rooms. Newegg is selling it for $349, an excellent price for kit of this caliber.

There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. If that's the case, you can help The Tech Report by using the following referral links when you're out shopping: not only do we have a partnership with Newegg, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club. For more specific needs, you can also shop with our links at the Microsoft Store and Das Keyboard's shop.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
