    thanks Hilbert for the awesome review!

    Oh man, the rampage looks so badass and the new bios layout looks pretty cool too, tho im not overly impressed with the benchmarks, doesn't seem like big upgrade coming from a 4960x.

    I do wonder how far these new chips can be overclocked tho!

    i believe the rear usb2.0 ports are black where you've said red, sir.

    great job on your 5x-combo Hilbert, thank you.

    I'm already on track upgrading to 4790k and Maximus VII Formula, the last of last gen's processors, rams and boards. until I upgrade again only God knows what technology will be in offer.

    So in threaded apps it is ~2x faster than a 4770k, awesome.
    But in most games performance difference is not that great ~10-20 fps or so?

    So for a WS this is a great platform, for gaming with 2 gpu's or less Z87/Z97 is probably the better option unless you want every last possible frame.

    games in 2015 -2016 will wreak havoc on z87 /z97, with this you're more future-proof. (haswell-e)

    Holy crap... 8 cores 16 threads. First thing I looked up in the review was how the task manager would look. omfg, lol!

    you buy a haswell-e and you don't have to worry so much about bottlenecks in upcoming games VS z87 /97.
    imo.

    .. so lame.



    Thanks for the review Hilbert! Been waiting for this one, let me tell you.

    Im surprised to see the pricing vs performance of the 5930k as I really thought that it would be the one to get, but seems like its not so.

    Also, nice to see the performance increase with the OC..


    I can now say though that I will skip this and wait until Skylake.. although this new chipset and cpu lineup would crush my 2600k, the gains are not enough to justify dropping 1k plus on a new chip and mobo.

    And so, I will wait :)

    Now to decide which to get, that 389$ for the 6 core is cheap
