Friday deals: a combo deal with a Core i7-8700K and more


Howdy there, folks! If you're on the hunt for a tablet, phone, convertible, or laptop, you positively have to check out our latest mobile staff picks guide. That's an order, gerbils! In the meantime, check out the deals we have for you today.

  • The party today starts with a combo deal: a pack o' items comprising an Intel Core i7-8700K processor, an Asus Strix Z370-E mobo, and 16 GB of Corsair Vengance LPRAM clocked at 3000 MT/s. To our reckoning, that's as perfect a set as they come, and Newegg's selling it for only $599.99 (Update: deal is sold out) while stocks last. That's a $140 savings compared to the price of the individual items. If you were on the fence about a Coffee Lake upgrade, now you know what to do.

  • While we're talking Asus mobos, do take a look at the Asus TUF Z370 Plus Gaming. This reliability-focused board has two M.2 slots, a pair of USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, and an Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet port. Don't forget the RGB LEDs, too! You can get this motherboard from Newegg for $119.99 if you use the promo code EMCPRRS33. The e-tailer will throw in a $15 rebate card to further sweeten the pot.

  • We're more than happy to see the occasional RAM deal in the midst of the sky-high prices. The highlight today is the G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16-GB kit with two 8-GB DIMMs clocked at 3000 MT/s. The sticks have a rather dashing look, crowned by RGB LED lights. Get this set from Newegg for only $189.99.

  • We like Fractal Design cases, you like them, everyone does. On our deals selection today, we have the Fractal Design Define Mini C TG. This microATX enclosure has mostly the same layout as its Define C brother, and it comes with a tempered-glass side panel for showing off your build. For the measly amount of $59.99, you can bring one of these home from Newegg.

  • The case above is small, but now we're going big. The LG 38UC99-W monitor has 38" of IPS panel goodness. The display's resolution is 3840x1600, and it has an aspect ratio of 21:9—all colloquially defined as "ultra-wide 4K." The panel should cover 99% of the sRGB color space, and there's FreeSync support and a "1-ms" mode on tap. Get this humongous display for $1,148 from Newegg.

  • Last but by no means least, we have thunderous sound on offer courtesy of the Onkyo TX-RZ820 receiver. This mighty unit is capable of pushing a whopping 130 W per channel (at 8 Ohm) and supports speaker configurations up to 7.1 or 5.2.2. Naturally, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio playback are supported. On the video support front, there's Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG, and Rec. 2020. There are speaker outputs for Zone 2 A/B, as well as multi-room audio capability. Around the back, the input and output selections can best be described as "all of them." This receiver is just the ticket for a fancy speaker setup or a large living room, and $699 is enough for you to take one home from Newegg.
