Thursday deals: a nice Z370 mobo, a huge VA display, and more

Hello, gerbils! I have a request for you today. I'm going to have a horizontal "wisdom" tooth (yes, really) pulled today, so I'll have an hour of two of horrible suffering followed by a few days of pain and eating mostly Queal. So if you have any best wishes, prayers, or positive thoughts, send them my way. On a happier note, here's today's collection of hardware deals. We have a wide selection, so get your credit cards out.

  • It might be the season for eggnog, but a good number of gerbils are looking forward to Coffee Lake instead. The Z370 Aorus Gaming WiFi is as nice a home as any for an eighth-gen Core CPU. It comes with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports in Type-A and Type-C flavors, two M.2 sockets, Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a Creative Sound Core 3D chip for good measure. Grab one of these for a low $129.99 from Newegg. As if that price wasn't good enough, there's a $30 rebate card on tap, too.

  • Here's something out of left field. The Viotek GN34C is an enormous 34" ultra-wide VA curved display with a resolution of 3440×1440 and a 100 Hz refresh rate. Those are eyebrow-raising specs on their own, but there's FreeSync support on tap, too. A display with these features and size would normally cost a pretty penny, but you can get this one for just $529.99 from Newegg.

  • An affordable SSD is a breath of fresh air these days. Today we have such an item, the Adata SU800 256 GB solid-state drive. It's a solid offering with 560 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write speeds, and it can be yours for only $70.99 at Newegg with the promo code EMCSBCBE4.

  • If you prefer your storage big and spinny, take a look at the Toshiba X300 5 TB hard drive. This model has a 7200-RPM speed, 128 MB of cache, and Newegg will hand it to you in exchange for only $119.99 if you use the promo code EMCBCBE23. We really do think you should be preparing some storage for all those inevitable Christmas videos.

  • Graphics card prices have also been riding high of late, so it's good to see a deal like the EVGA GTX 1060 6 GB ACX 2.0. This card is petite, powerful, and pretty affordable at $249.99. That price is decent in itself, but there's a $20 rebate card available that can bring the cost down to $229.99.

  • Finally, something to put all that hardware in: the Cooler Master MasterBox 5 case in black-and-white finish. This enclosure received a TR Editor's Choice award back when we reviewed it, and you can get one for only $49.99 with the promo code EMCBCBE35. If you then fill out a rebate card, you can get another $10 off. That's insane value right there.

That's all for today, folks! 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 and Amazon, 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.

    Best of luck Bruno, it’s not the nicest thing to have done mate but I haven’t bitten the back of my damn gums in forever after having a couple pulled.

    It’s also a wicked excuse to just eat mousse, jelly and ice cream for a while, hehe 🙂

    Good luck mate!

    [quote<]days of pain and eating mostly Queal[/quote<] Ask your doctor to make sure they do not have any objections in your situation, but ice cream, preferably natural/vanilla or at least non-citrus (and without nuts or other hard parts mixed in ofc) should help a bit with both swelling and pain when kept near/on the spot; in moderation, please. I don't know Queal, but you can try bananas, too. Edit: Small print: I am not a doctor. Every person and situation is different. Ask your doctor before using anything they did not explicitly advise. This was used in similar (to me), but not the same situation.

    What is the consensus from TR readers regarding Toshiba’s hard drives?

    Worth it or not?

      I have found Toshiba hard-drives to be good value.
      · Very Inexpensive.
      · Faster than everything except Western Digital’s fastest blacks.
      · Not infected with Seagate’s nasty shingles.
      · Quiet while spinning, but somewhat noisy while seeking.

P.S.: Combunox, Percoset or Targin would probably work as well. They all include oxycodone mixed with an NSAID.
