    I know all of that. I read tech like old people play the lottery. That's why it's called hope, and I was referring to the K SKU's only.


    I'd rather not, but thanks for your input.

    We have a few months before we even see X79. So probably close to a year for X89.

    Say what ?

    Also, Haswell-E should be X99 chipset:

    I usually use ASUS boards, but the gold theme is just gross in my opinion. I am gonna use a Gigabyte board for my build for the first time ever.

    lol. I won't be updating my bookmarks, but thanks. It's called a mistake. Easily made knowing IVB-E is X79, I quickly assumed the next would be an 8. I don't triple SLi or Crossfire, so the E SKU does not interest me too much. Nice try at trying to jab me back though, but you should have quit at your heatsink mod idea.

    *nods*
    And just the design of the HS's are hideous. They look really really cheap. I'll stick to my EVO for now.

    I think they also should have kept the EVO name or anything other than calling its replacement Expert. Expert sounds ridiculous.

    It seems odd to use a LGA 2011 socket in the year 2014 xD.

    Why? Sockets are determined by CPU package pin-outs, and pin-out count is largely determined by memory channel requirements (I.e. 1150 for dual channel, 1366 for tri-channel, 2011 for quad channel). Haswell-E will support the same four channels that SB-E/IB-E use, albeit DDR4 with single DIMM's per channel.
    Yup. Fine. All good. Just pointing out an error. Don't really need the minutiae of how you arrived at your supposition.

    I think there is to be a new series of Broadwell on ITV. Whoops sorry getting confused with Broadchurch!
