I need to find a good guide for OC'ing the 2600k then and getting the right board if I stick with it until Ivy-e comes. I fear Broadwell or whatever it will be named since recent leaked roadmaps has it gone from the list and looks to be a haswell refresh in 2014 only will be much the same in terms of performance jumps and heat. I would like to run both cards at x16.
From the news, its not looking too well for Haswell (excuse the rhyme
). Unless intel plans to release a new stepping soon, it really doesn't offer you any advantage over IV. You can get a new 3770k from MC for $230. Or just find a used one. Honestly, I would try to squeeze as much as possible from SB first. They're still selling strong. with a good mb, you can probably hit 4.8-5.0 easily. If your chip really can't push much more, go w/ a 3570k/3770k. Not worth the extra cost in going with a new Haswell platform.
