    Gives a good insight into the tech, though given the issues I've had with the Giga X79S-UP5, I'll be avoiding them for my X99 build most likely.

    Probably makes the entry Haswell-E very rather unattractive to gamers, at least imo. Would not think about going more than 2-way SLI with the 5820K, which doesn't pay off at all for gaming I think. If you go to 3-way or quad-SLI, then you have to buy the more expensive CPUs anyway...

    Interestingly, with one of the mainboards there's an option to disable CPU cores in bios. Sure, I pay hundreds of $ / € / whatever and then I disable CPU cores :rolleyes:
    (I'm sure there's sense to that, the idea is just so unorthodox I don't see a reason to do it...)

    Oh, and yes, again and of course, only one true pwm fan header (CPU1), everything else is basically voltage controlled, for any of you wondering.

    To wait for AMD to win over Intel performance wise... :rolleyes: You'll see, because AMD isn't able to really steal the performance crown from Intel, Intel does all this... nobody would sell for less cash without any competition. That won't change 2016 or 2017 either. Anything else would be a dream ;)

    Nah mate see... I sit silently, patiently staring out of a bush in some dark, wet corner ready to pounce on some unsuspecting... upgrade when i can double my gaming performance and double the specs of my current rig, i'm not interested in whos faster that's why i bought a 920.
