    Son's of Bitch's. I have this awesome caselabs case laying around in my house, and no way to utilize it. so depressing.

    I guess that's what i get for blowing my load too early on computer hardware. :banana:

    So if they are still releasing new IB CPU's through the entire of 2013 then where will Haswell fit in? I have been waiting for that instead of upgrading my current rig to a z77 board and a 3770K due to the problems a lot of people are facing with the heat issues.... I might as well just upgrade to X79 then?

    Actually here a question I haven't looked up much about Haswell yet, will it be an X79 based chip or will they release yet another new board chipset something like the X89 maybe? If its compatible with X79 I might just upgrade now to X79 and get myself a 3930K then maybe see how much better Haswell is if it supports the same chipset.

    EDIT:

    Maybe I should read the diagram better. LOL Haswell will be launched in Q3 of this year LOL but only in the performance and mainstream line up...?

    Hmmm.... the 4770K is looking tempting now :)

    Yes only mainstream for now, Haswell-E is due sometime 2014, probably Q2-Q3.

    Idk i was going for a Haswell i7 4770K too (7execution way engine and better single threaded optimization is what got my attention), but to be honest i really want a true 8core, that IB-E 8core (16 threads) would be perfect. Ok Haswell-E 8core would be that perfection but that is to far away.. :(

    Yeah, I know what you mean :) I have 920, my brother 6600 and we're not going to replace them anytime soon. Well... maybe 4000 or 5000 series, if someone among family or friends will need my or my brother's current rig.

    Sounds interesting in a world where games and apps could utilize all those cores.
