    2700 for $230 plus an additional $30 off if you combo it with a board. That's probably the best deal on there currently, however they also have....

    2700x for $280 beforew/ $30 combo
    2600 for $160 before w/ $30 combo discount
    2400g for $140 before $30 combo
    2200g for $80 NO combo
    1600 for $99 NO combo discount
    1700x $159 NO combo

    These deals are about as good if not better than the black friday deals.

    I picked up this combo for a friend a week or so ago Denver MC. It pretty much smokes anything you can get online. I would also point out the store rep confirmed the $30 off also applies to openbox/refurb motherboards for the combo, not just BNIB.

    Unless they changed policy, openbox only gets combo discount if they don't have new version of the motherboard in stock.

    I picked up the 1700X on Black Friday, with an ASUS B350 STRIX motherboard. 1700X was $129 and the STRIX was 50 off instant ($79), minus $30 combo. With the $5 off coupon, the combo was $175, and like $188 with tax, out the door. I got it for my brother. Now, I'm in the mood to build a new PC and kicking myself for not getting that deal!

    $188 out the door for 8 cores with MB that's madness.

    Combo discount on open box mobos I think varies by store, since the markdowns need to be done manually by a manager anyway. I'm pretty sure the Cambridge location doesn't do $30 off on open box boards, but if anything, the promotion they run is generally better, which is 50% off the original price on open box boards.

    There's also a $5 off $30 in store coupon from retailmenot. It will take $5 off the processor.

    NJ location allows combo discount to be applied to clearance/open box items. Just ask for a manager override: have gotten this without a problem 4 times over the past 2 years.

    Wow you guys like living dangerously. I'm an hour (one wa) from microcenter and if that open box has any issues, my gas & time just exceeded my savings...

    I snagged one of these deals a bit back but got it for less ($120 I think) due to some other stacking discount that is available to...can't remember what it was but it popped up during check out when I was scheduling the instore pickup. Awesome deal with an ASROCK mini-ITX mobo for a SFF system.

    1. understandable, mines only 15 minutes away.
    2. it only takes a day to run stress tests and check features and they give you 15, i think.
    3. yeah only for my personal builds im confident i can test. for friends or others id buy new.

    microcenters openbox deals are crazy sometimes. i almost snagged a 9900k for $400 the other day already gone today. that new maximus z390 thats 400 something was open box 275. my gtx1080 i got openbox for 500 a couple years ago full warranty. smoking deals if the manufactures rma is solid.

    Same, my Microcenter is 15 minutes away so the open box/clearance items are a no brainer when they are well priced. Bought a 2700X during black friday open-box for $199.96 + 3.5% tax; boosts to 4.3K with XFR2 enabled all day without issue!

    Also, just bought another 2700X 2 days ago and it was $280 BEFORE the $30 combo discount, not after, so a bit more enticing a deal than what is in the OP.

    I just got a 2700X over the weekend at the PA MicroCenter. It was $279.99 before the combo discount. The motherboard I got was also about $25 to $30 cheaper than any of the online vendors.

    The OP is supposed to mean 280 before the 30 combo... so 250 after...

    Errr for black friday at my local MC I got the 1700x for 129.99 and an open box Crosshair VI wifi for 74.96 less $30 so $175 + tax. System OC's to 4 ghz and Asus continues to release bios updates for the CHVI :). Bundled it with a 500GB 970 EVO for 109.99. A little over $300 out the door

    Then again, I live 5 min so I'm sure I've spent my share there.
