In terms of giving you my Win10 product key, I'm not sure how that works since my license is a "Digital License linked to my Mircosoft account" which was done as part of my Win 8.1 -> Win 10 Home free upgrade they offered a while ago.

My Activation panel in Win Settings just shows this:

Any ideas?

Oh and regarding the special link, do I just go ahead and purchase that now to lock this in? :)

Morning Jannis,

Placing the order does indeed lock it all in :)

If your activation is linked to your account then it will likely be up to you to activate it as if it doesn't work off the bat you may need to get in contact with Microsoft who can reactivate your system for you.

I'm not worried about the activation on my end as I can simply login to Microsoft account which will activate the system :)

So I guess you guys can do the Windows 10 install and just don't activate it, you get like 7 days "free" anyway right which should be enough for setup, OC testing etc and then I just login to my MS account when I get the PC back and all is well.

If you guys can't do the Win install + OCing/testing of the GPU without a license key though that might be an issue, I don't think you'd need it but let me know if you do please.
