No need to post further. This sums it up - when a new chipset is released and the highlight is in small letters "supports the M.2" interface and a huge picture of a hot new rear I/O shield no one including the user sees, you know the chipset is a big zzzzzzz.

yes, funny how intel milks its chipsets even though Z87 will be compatible with Haswell refresh and looks like Broadwell too.
Although I see their point, they need to make the market going..


But what's funnier most tech sites claim Haswell refresh wont be compatible with Z87 nvm Broadwell..
They all take that vr-zone slide for granted, while Intel PR/CEO said Broadwell will be compatible with existing systems Z87 and brand new systems Z97, fail

You guys just don't get it. It's a GAMING I/O panel OK?

EDIT: NEXT GEN GAMING I/O panel.

I'm sure using that IO Shield will give a 3 FPS gain in Games.

Well yeah its a gaming brand, just like by Gigabyte Sniper Series or ECS with Gank L337 series (wccf tech review), Asus with Rog, etc..


And from what i saw these newer MSI boards are quite solid, dunno why you all hate them xD

They also tend to come with the newer ALC1150 audio, which includes a semi-decent headphone AMP. A lot of other brands selling comparable products skip this, and while for people like myself it's useless, it's a big jump over most other onboard. My only gripe is the KILLER NIC, I'd happily buy an MSI motherboard if not for that.

THAT right there is awesome news! I actually thought that Z87 did NOT support haswell refresh and certainly NOT broadwell.

Great news, though things can change for broadwell as its still a way off but nice to know haswell refresh will be compatible. If they sort out the temp issues like the ones current haswells suffer I might sell my 4770K
