    They can make a better CPU to Heat spreader contact for the 6 core designs.
    Perhaps this is why they havent improved the 4 cores much so they have some headroom.

    Not sure, the Memory wasn't in stock. Said 2-3 days. I think Thursday.

    That would be nice but I'm not holding my breath at the moment, may well end up de-lidding otherwise.

    I'm on OLD i5 750 , overclocked to 4.2Ghz right now and i cant see any benefits from upgrading to Haswell, and i'm 3 generations behind.
    Something is going wrong with game development or CPU development ...not sure which.

    Well coming from X58 i have quite some reasons to upgrade. Some of my other Hardware is being hold back due to limitations.

    And i might be able to ask a good 300 Euros for my current CPU, Memory and Motherboard. If i wait another year i can throw it in the bin.

    yup, a 4770k @ 3.5ghz is going to be ~20% faster than a 750 @ 4ghz and as you say, a 750 definitely bottlenecks current generation graphics cards.

    I think I will wait a little, the build when from 350$ some change for i5 3750 + MB +16gb ram

    to $500+ for i7 4770 + MB+ 16gb. And I want to get New Case and one of them Noctua NH-U12S.

    I ordered the NH-U14S + Extra Fan with my 4770K.

    I did want to get a D14, but they ship with old Fans. And after a mail to Noctua they said they don't plan to change that.

    I've been waiting for Haswell and now I'm stuck if I should get it or not. Having an Intel sata6 vs the crap Marvell sata6 would be nice for my ssd but what else, ya know. You guys think since I have SLI that it may be a good benefit?

    The motherboard is what it does for me, and that's why i upgrade. Also going 2400 MHz memory seems a BIG step forward.

    And about your SLI, not sure if all boards do. I believe all Z87 boards have atleast two PCI-E Gen 3 slots. Some even have three.

    In the same boat except I can see their would be benefit from having a Sata 3 and USB 3 ready board. I could wait and see if the ROG Raidr would do the job.

    I'm still running 1st gen i7 @ 3.8 with 1st gen eVGA classified mobo from 07/08. Is this setup comparable to the new release? Can my rig run a single 780 or sli 780s well?

    *i have 500gb 840 SSD in it.

    I think you gotta push the CPU further for SLI.

    That would be nice.. But the 1st gen i7 is a voltage hog! I'm running it at 1.4 volts and have since the beginning. I can't take it higher due to temps.. But thanks for the heads up!

    You had a bad lottery ticket then. My 950 runs at 3,8 @ 1,225v.

    Is that using the stock coolers? Isn't the stock cooler for Haswell different? Even if they look the same, I guess the 'easy' way to tell would be to try the Haswell cooler on Ivy and compare it to the Ivy cooler.

    Using a third party cooling solution may show Ivy and Haswell recording much closer temperatures (just hypothesising here).
