Need to be 50-75 bucks cheaper..not a good deal imo
I got both 12900k bundle and this one 13700k bundle from microcenter in the past 2 weeks.

Here are my thoughts:

1. Asus board is better. I had issues with not recognizing nvme and slow boot time with MSI board. The MSI's default voltage is too high and causing high cpu temp, especially with enhanced turbo on. No issues with asus board although you need to get a nvme heatsink since it's not provided with the board.

2. I undervolted both CPUs. Set offset -0.070 and -0.05 and power limited 125w and 120w pl1/pl2 on 12900k and 13700k respectively. 12900k lost about 12% and 13700k lost about 18% in multi thread but the temperatures are <65 c under benchmark and still about 10% faster than 13600k. Gaming temp is around 50-55 c. Overall 13700k runs slightly hotter but still scores better than 12900k in multi thread.

If you are buying for gaming only, just get the 12900k. It's a lot cheaper and the fps is almost the same between these two CPUs.
It is for gaming purpose but there's plenty of pleople needs their desktop for productivity reasons. Even though ryzen's been a great alternatives, a lot of productivity softwares tend to support intels better.

What are people's thoughts on this bundle compared to the $400 i9 12900k bundle? Seems like this one has slightly better mobo and cpu but worth the extra $100?

Speaking of MicroCenter, any idea if the new North Carolina store will have huge grand opening discounts similar to when they opened the Indianapolis store last year?

Previous FP deal (linked in the post) said i7-14700K, this one is i7-13700K. Not to nitpick, but it's a different product, just mentioning this for accuracy.

Just to confirm, wasn't the previous deal for an i7-14700K? The previous deal link didn't work for me but the post listed the CPU in the bundle as:

Intel Core i7-14700K Raptor Lake 3.4GHz Twenty-Core LGA 1700 Boxed Processor (Heatsink Not Included)


The current deal and link posted here is for an i7-13700k. The CPU listed in this deal is Raptor Lake 16-Core Desktop Processor.

I'm not too familiar with the deal or computers but just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something?

Previous deal included the Intel Core i7-14700K CPU, but this is still a nice bundle. Thanks!

Don't see why not. Microcenter used to have free money coupons the first years when they first started in the little building over here. They seem to have a history of such things.

Seperate question : do all modern cpus an MB not require a gfx card? Last I built only half had that an it was likely something to avoid due to higher cost
