    Said Core i7-5820K is priced at sub-£300
    The link to the 5820K gives a 404 error as Scan have changed the url by adding "-r" at the end. [rolls eyes]

    This should work regardless of how they change the ridiculous product url. http://www.scan.co.uk/search.aspx?q=LN58535

    I suggest that you tell them, with the authority of a marketing partner, to start their urls with a product number and have the server ignore whatever **** it finds after.

    Eg. www.scan.co.uk/products/LN58535/intel-core-i7-5820k-unlocked-s-2011-3-haswell-e-6-core-33ghz-36ghz-turbo-28-pci-e-lanes-15mb-cache--and-any-other-buzzword-of-the-day

    Maybe they'd be interested in people's bookmarks working for as long as the product is in the inventory instead of only working for so long before becoming an annoyance?

    I don't know about anyone else, but this doesn't look to be 'sub' £300 to me - http://prntscr.com/5iw0t3

    Prices change every day. The CPU was just a hair under £300 when the editorial was written, most likely to due a slightly better exchange rate.

    Yup, I picked up one of these with the i7-5820K, it's very nice. Haven't tried OC yet so we'll see how that goes, but very happy with it so far.

    I must admit, "sub-£300" means something like £250-280 to me. Hairs, smidgeons and tads aren't "sub", they're "about". ;-)
