    a kind user already warned me about the 2.5Gbe problem but this review hammered in my brain the fact that
    Intel released a broken chipset that require a hardware change (so a new motherboard) and that those fixed motherboards will come out when the new Intel cpu come out
    so.....this gen is already dead there's no reason to buy it >< the next gen will have (wasn't planned) new motherboards because of that
    "hey want to buy a 800$ motherboard that will never work properly ?" "uh no thanks"
    I guess not everyone cares about 2.5Gbe but where fiber optic is available 2.5Gb is coming in the near future
    thanks for the review

    edit: @ScottishPickle will probably appear on their website in a few days
