TB support wont come on launch, but Q2 is more likley to have TB added to second round of Z77 boards. I mean TB is nice, but nothing uses it, and card prob wont be that expensive.

Ok, got that guys thank you!
What if I go for some "old" Sandy i5/i7s to save some bucks instead of Ivy... Which are some fine mobos?
Do you think the saving is worth the loss of performance?
Kudos to everyone redface.gif

Asrock P67 Extreme 6 is a good one. It's basically my board except a little cheaper. The heatsinks are fastened with push pins rather than screws, so you can't install full-length PCIe cards in the x1 slot. It's pretty much the only reason I went for the Fatal1ty branded one, I needed my sound card to fit in the top slot.

Thank you railfan844, I have an Arctic accelero xtreme cooler for my VGA so I would like the Fatal1ty one because I need some space too biggrin.gif,
I'm out for something that gives good OCability and ready for future CPU upgrade...
