If you buy a Z690 board and an Intel CPU, you get € 250 back!

These types of promotions are really interesting, first, because they are for a limited time. Second, because they offer a real refund that makes us save afterwards compared to not having the promotion active, so they really are all advantages. But what goes into the promotion?

ASUS Cashback Z690 Intel Gen 12

Logically, not all ASUS motherboards are included in the promotion, so we have to talk about selected Z690 motherboards. What we will have an advantage over other promotions is the fact that all Intel CPUs of this new generation are included in the promotion, so if we choose the one we choose, we will have the advantage of saving after the purchase.

The peculiarity is that there is a scale, a table where, depending on the combination we choose of CPU and motherboard model, ASUS will reimburse us a greater or lesser amount. To cite two examples to understand, an i5-12600K or KF with a PRIME Z690M-PLUS D4 will give us a refund of 50 euros, while a ROG MAXIMUS Z690 EXTREME GLACIAL with an i9-12900K or KF is 250 euros, it is say, five more times.

The instructions given by ASUS are as follows:

  1. Purchase a select ASUS Z690 motherboard and Intel Core processor between October 27 and November 30, 2021.
  2. Complete the required information between November 18 and December 14, 2021.
  3. After a short verification, you will receive your refund directly at your bank.

With this explained (the promotion and refund claim website) and looking at the table we are going to recommend some configurations that you can buy now and that will arrive from Thursday, the date on which the Intel NDA ends:

Intel Core i9-12900K + ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING WIFI

i9-12900K Box Price

It is a very succulent combination, but it is aimed at those users who are not going to overclock as such or it will be very light.


It is an upper-mid-range motherboard that integrates the latest of the latest. From Wi-Fi 6E, USB 3.2 Gen 2 A and C, 16 + 1 power phases and multiple M.2 PCIe 4.0, apart from a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot.

Intel Core i5-12600K and ASUS TUF GAMING Z690-PLUS WIFI D4


We start from the basis that it is a board with DDR4 memory and not DDR5 like the one mentioned above, which undoubtedly lowers the final cost of the platform. The TUF range is made to last, not for nothing does it have military grade components, but this Z690-PLUS WIFI D4 falls within the mid-range and with it the options are more concise, but with quality.


From the multiple USB ports, DisplayPort, HDMI, Wi-Fi 6E, 14 + 1 power phases and four M.2 PCIe 4.0, what stands out without a doubt is the support for the aforementioned DDR4, but at a speed of 5333 MHz , that is, we can install any memory of this type without complications.


Intel Core i7 12700K

It is an option for anyone who wants a compact, very powerful computer and instead does not need frills of the RAID M.2 type or several GPUs. It has everything that its older sisters but in M-ATX format, so it has not been complicated to include its 14 + 1 power phases, support for DDR5, 2.5 GbE or the new ALC4080 DAC.

About the CPU there is not much to say that we have not said or discussed already: 12 cores, 20 threads, up to 5 GHz in its P-Cores, 20 PCIe 5.0 lanes and of course, it does not include iGPU as it is the cheapest KF version.

These are just a few examples of the amount of combinations that can be made, so it is a matter of each one buying adapting to your needs and budget, it will not be for variety in this ASUS Cashback for Z690!
