Looks do sell. wink.gif I think even Asus admitted the Sabertooth TUF armor was for the looks, but yeah the backplate might be useful. Supposedly the Maximus V Formula has thermal pads on the front side of the TUF armor. We'll see I guess.

If you love EVGA, I'd wait and see what the first buyers say about the motherboard. I may need an "E" series board (have some video encoding I gotta do), and right now, I'd lean heavily towards the Asus Rampage boards, which have been pretty solid.



Right now we just need the benchmarks. Intel is claiming 10% faster than Sandy E - well Ivy was like ~5% faster than Sandy so I'm a bit skeptical as to why the Ivy E version would be 10% faster than Sandy E. Unless they're releasing a higher clock? Perhaps.

I really don't buy computer hardware based on looks, aside from the case. If a part doesn't cost that much more but look nicer, I will buy it, but if it's a z77 sabertooth, which was probably a bit better than the Asrock Extreme6, that's going a bit overboard. This is probably why my rig looks so bad.

They were selling the Z77FTW for $90 at one point. It was a good deal then, and then never again. No Intel C states, offset overclocking, SATA chipset problems, and a ton of miscellaneous problems that happen to just about every board.

I love EVGA graphics cards, but I try not to have any kind of brand loyalty. I've realized how stupid it is.

That would be awesome always liked Asus boards but been stuck with the deluxe or ls, as I have blue fans, uv coolant and LEDs. Would love to have a ROG board if only it came in a blue theme instead if Red/black

The new processor i7 4960X will not be the usual 2011 socket it will be different!!
I'm waiting for Asus to come out for some updated motherboards for the older 2011 socket like a Rampage V extreme.

What are you talking about all the Ivy Bridge E are based off the current 2011 socket no new motherboards are needed just a bios update. The Haswell-E will be 2011 but a different pin layout so it wont' be compatible....Most likely there will be a motherboard refresh though for ive bridge e with either a revised x79 chipset or a new chipset altogether and which case you would need a new motherboard to get the added features but no mandatory....

Yeah I think he has gotten confused there would be a lot of angry people including myself if I can't use my current 2011 asus board paired with a 4930k.

Anyway, I thought they were having trouble getting solder to work on 22nm. Strange. Maybe the theory that they were intentionally gimping the consumer line was true.
Its toppc. He goes through these like candy.

Those CPUs are given to reviewers / press for testing + marketing purposes for free (some times they even get paid to evaluate them).
These examples are usually "engineering samples" and it is illegal for them to sell - technically there is no price-tag on ES CPUs, even if those are identical or nearly identical to final production CPUs.
