The unsung hero (heroine?) of every PC: The motherboard! A good motherboard is the difference between a PC that lasts for 5-7 years, and another that you get rid of after 1-2 years. Please make sure that you pick your motherboard AFTER the CPU, and the not the other way around! This list is for Intel motherboards. Coffee Lake and Kaby Lake CPUs are not interchangeable, so check CPU compatibility before purchase.
Please note: The best deals are dependent on rebates. Such rebates are reliable, but only if you follow the instructions exactly and submit everything on time, so better be careful!
ASRock Z370 Killer. $120 after $10 rebate (normal price: $160 – A discount of $40 or 25%).
Wanted by the FBI and CIA for ending the lives of so many digital citizens. This motherboard is an evil fiend!
ASUS TUF Z370 Pro Gaming. $130 (normal price: $160 – A discount of $30 or 19%).
You can carry this motherboard as a shield in battle, because it is tuf. (Editor’s note: We allowed this joke through, so that you can warn your friends about how lame people can be when describing motherboards.)
GIGABYTE Z370 Ultra Gaming. $120 after $20 rebate (normal price: $170 – A discount of $50 or 29%).
A good option for those who want to build a PC around the mid-tier Coffee Lake CPUs (i5s)
ASRock Z370 Extreme4. $125 after $20 rebate (normal price: $175 – A discount of $50 or 29%).
Not merely good, or fanatical, or even hardcore, but downright EXTREME! And EXTREME4, which is four times more EXTREME than usual.
GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 5 . $150 after $20 rebate (normal price: $200 – A discount of $50 or 25%).
A very sweet deal on a decent Coffee-Lake-CPU-supporting mobo. Now, where are those Coffee Lake CPUs?
GIGABYTE X299 Gaming 3. $180 after $40 rebate (normal price: $280 – A discount of $100 or 36%).
Pretty large discount on this motherboard. Now you can save quite a bit on your high-end PC!
MSI X299 SLI PLUS . $180 after $40 rebate (normal price: $260 – A discount of $80 or 31%).
A very good home for those high-end Intel CPUs. We recommend this motherboard often, even at full price.
GIGABYTE X299 Ultra Gaming. $270 after $30 rebate (normal price: $350 – A discount of $80 or 23%).
See, it has “Ultra” in the name, which has a significant meaning. Surely, they would not call a motherboard “Ultra” if it did not mean something, right?
MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON . $290 after $40 rebate (normal price: $350 – A discount of $60 or 17%).
This pricey mobo will (not) guarantee a huge improvement in your gaming skills. Now you can shoot/kill/jump so much better than your opponents!

A sizeable percentage discount on a basic Ryzen-ready motherboard.
ASUS PRIME Z270-A . $100 after $35 rebate (normal price: $160 – A discount of $60 or 38%).
Nearly 40% off including rebate on a well-known Prime motherboard, and it is indeed prime.

MSI Z270 GAMING PRO CARBON. $120 after $30 rebate (normal price: $175 – A discount of $55 or 31%).
You can always tell a good motherboard by the fact that they put PRO in the name (not really, but the deal is pretty sweet).
MSI Z270 GAMING M7. $150 after $40 rebate (normal price: $250 – A discount of $100 or 40%).
A Kaby Lake board with that black-and-red color scheme that implies power.
ASRock Z270 Extreme 4. $105 after $30 rebate (normal price: $165 – A discount of $60 or 36%).
Not quite as EXTREME as the Coffee Lake EXTREME board listed above, but still Kaby Lake-capable and noticeably EXTREME times 4.
ASRock X299. $200 after $50 rebate (normal price: $300 – A discount of $100 or 33%).
A big rebate and a big discount turns this pricey, high-end motherboard into a somewhat-pricey, high-end motherboard.
ASRock Z270 KILLER. $90 after $30 rebate (normal price: $150 – A discount of $60 or 40%).
This board’s a Killer—provided your definition of Killer is a solidly discounted Kaby Lake motherboard (with Killer in its name).

Downright beautiful motherboard for black-and-white Kaby Lake builds.
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO. $100 after $50 rebate (normal price: $200 – A discount of $100 or 50%).
Only natively 6th-gen-Intel-compatible, but with a discount like this it would be perfect for builders who wait a generation or two to get low newly-vintage upgrade prices.
MSI Z270 GAMING M5 . $115 after $40 rebate (normal price: $200 – A discount of $85 or 43%).
A friend of mine told me this motherboard is called the M5 because it’s short for MI5, the UK Security Service that employs James Bond. If he’s right, this is definitely a spy motherboard.
ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 . $120 after $20 rebate (normal price: $180 – A discount of $60 or 33%).
An intensely red Kaby Lake motherboard with all the bells and whistles.

A common practice when it comes to these major sales is to increase the “original” price before applying the discount, so that buyers think that they are getting a bigger discount. We always try to point out the true original price whenever the official original price is very far from reality.
