    Yeah, DDR4 isnt the feature I Was thinking about for Haswell-E. It was the 8 core :D.

    Hoping Haswell-E also has SATA Express... (apparently it is supposed to but we'll wait and see!)

    If you have the money for Extreme series CPUs, you must have the cash to spare for a PCIe SSD xD.

    Couldn't wait any longer,had all the rest of the build so I bought the 3930k ,oh well , hope there's not much difference,other than saving a bit of power..

    Some yes. I'm after RAID + TRIM support. The OCZ series doesn't do TRIM in Windows due to using SCSI miniport I believe. RAIDR supposedly does but yet to confirm - until they prove it, I'm assuming it is bs.

    It's a bit of a mess. If you want raw speed you go PCIe. If you want best SSD command support you want to go Intel SATA.

    Wow, that is dumb. I hope Samsung or Intel comes out with a PCIe SSD for consumers.
