Intel Core i7 6700K available at Newegg as combo only: “This item can only be purchased with a combo”

I wrote about the availability of Intel’s Core i7-6700K in the United Stats recently and noted it was not available at any of the major US computer parts retailers. Today, Newegg does have it in stock with one catch: you must buy it as bundle. If you try to add an i7-6700K to your cart you get an error: “Sorry, this gift item is part of a promotional special and cannot be manually added to your cart” with bundles listed below it.

If you’re building a brand new desktop computer and need to pick all the parts then these bundles may not be so bad but if you’ve just been looking to buy an Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz alone then you’ve out of luck. Some bundles come with a motherboard, memory, and of course the Skylake Core i7-6700K but most are just motherboards and the i7 CPU.

Here are the combos from cheapest to most expensive, all of them come with the i7-6700K:
