    So... I'm building a gaming PC with my son and we're (he's) looking for the following...

    i5 4690K
    MSI Z97 GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

    Anyone got either (both?) they don't want/need anymore ?

    Location: Orpington

    I need to keep the G3258 now sorry. The i5 is as new, remainder of 3 year warranty is left, so 2 years and 8 months. Never overclocked.

    No worries - thanks for coming back quickly - need to chat with my son the Mrs (she holds the cash!)....
    So as new includes the "instructions" ?
    Will I need thermal paste for the fan ?
    (my son and I are "beginners" sorry for all the questions!)

    No problems, yes, manual is included. I can supply some thermal paste and clean the old paste from the cooler if you would like. No worries about the questions either, happy to help.

    Thanks - I'll be back a little later once I've chatted to my son (I didn't expect quite such a fast response to what he was specifically looking for tbh!)

    Didn't get chance to speak about this with my boy - we found out he was a little behind on homework !!!
    Still have interest, and will be back either way by the end of the weekend - thanks for the offer - no worries from me if someone else takes it...
