The B&H deal is $10 less, but it doesn't come with any memory. It has a different, better MSI motherboard though.

B&H Deal has MSI Z170A-G45 [newegg.com].
Newegg Deal has MSI Z170A [newegg.com].

You figure the memory is worth at least $50 to $55 on sale... and you're only paying $10 more than the B&H deal. I don't know.... it's almost a wash in terms of value.

It depends..if you plan to spend so much on unlocked processor then you would like to have a better board and memory..! That's my opinion..!

I can definitely see that argument if you're doing extensive overclocking. Honestly, I think it would have been more attractive if Newegg priced this bundle at $449.99 AR and included the other MSI gaming motherboard + a 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) 288-Pin DDR4-3000 Desktop Memory Kit or higher with it.

I think people would be willing to pay $20 more if they had all parts they desire.

The mobo and mem are going to hold you back big time if you want to overclock (which would be the main reason to buy a 6700k), it's like buying a Ferrari to drive it on a parking lot.

Can you still do minor overclock to the CPU though? Like 4.0 GHz -> 4.1 - 4.3 GHz

"Last I checked, I was still writing for Overclockers.com (looks up.... yep!), and since overclocking is 'what we do', I did! This board allowed me to easily get up to 4.8 GHz using similar voltage as the other boards and achieved 'stability' (read: enough to run XTU benchmark and a longer Hyper PI) there as well. I pushed the BCLK up to 200 MHz and ran the same exact tests, no problems at all. I have confidence in this board for an ambient cooled overclock. Intel has made things so easy on us, haven't they?!"

This is not the MSI Z170A SLI PLUS, it is a different version this thing doesn't even have onboard video out.

It has to be a slightly different version or newer revision of that board then. If you go to Newegg's non-mobile website, they are showing the z170a sli plus.

I would get this board if it has the basic for memory, m.2 PCIe 3.0 x4, general I/O backpanels, enough SATA and other connectors, stability, and some OC potential.

BS, if you click on the link to the mobo from the combo this is what you get:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...gnorebbr=1

The "plus" version is here in a completely different listing and price:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

I can't even find reviews for the non plus version.
