Use different motherboard for 3-1 combo?


I really want to build a mini-itx form factor and have been looking at the i9-12900k bundle with the MSI Z690-A PRO WiFi DDR5. The only issue is that it is an ATX mobo and is too large to fit into an itx case. The MSI Z690 is retail for $229.99 at MC without the bundle and the board I would like to use is the ASUS B760-I ROG Strix for $219.99 ($10 cheaper) at MC.

Is this swap possible? If not, can I return the mobo for some store credit and use that to help purchase the itx board?

Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately, we cannot swap a motherboard from the bundle. The bundle pricing only triggers when the three specific items are paired together - and this goes for all the bundles.

    Normally, there is a $20 bundle for when you purchase a CPU and motherboard together, though.
