    Maybe wait for "Velocita" or "Formula" versions...

    I always like ASROCK but some of their models with features vs prices are just off.

    The two aforementioned usually has the best balance, to me, but prices are always a premium for the feature set.

    very nice except day 1 obsolete with a new chipset/cpu coming within a year, not a good time to buy Intel. a totally different story next year

    LGA 1700 will also support LGA 18XX.

    really? my bad

    tho' still a one year cpu when next year's will be (for sure) amazing.
    i love doing builds so i'll probably make one for friend or family. having the same chipset as next year's is big for Intel. they are also getting a good ecosystem of ddr and pcie memory going, but again a steep upgrade when we know LGA 18xx is measurably better.
    early adopter fee in this case will be like ordering Cristal to go with your dinner.

    thats not possible, you can't support 1800 pins on a 1700 pin socket.

    LGA 1700 has room for about 100 more pins.

    The socket says 17XX / 18XX on the retention plate.
