I heard June and Summer, I would've been happy to wait for broadwell but that got delayed to next year apparently, I'm not so interested in the new chipset, looks to me hardly anythings changed, It's the Devils Canyons that are expected to clock better and maybe run cooler rolleyes.gif Intel yet again changing sockets, no, changing chipset on the same socket rolleyes.gif

Apparently it might be on a software level as in microcode, or in pin arrangement or something hardware-wise which is why Z87 isn't forward compatible with refreshes from the research I've been doing.

Meh, Im more interested in Haswell E. Wish I would have waited instead of getting this 4770k to be honest.

Samsung XP941 blows SATA 3.0 (6 Gbit/s - 600 MB/s) SSDs out of the water, 1170MB/s read and 970MB/s write. The trouble is availability as it's intended for system assemblers and not consumers.

http://www.thessdreview.com/our-reviews/samsung-xp941-m-2-pcie-ssd-review-512gb/

That should hopefully change shortly, especially now that Plextor has their M6e out, with 770MB/s read and 625MB/s write (512 GB).

http://www.thessdreview.com/our-reviews/plextor-m6e-pcie-m-2-ssd-review-256gb-512gb-raid-testing/

So the capability of the M.2 slot is there, it's just up to manufacturers to push products that that can take advantage of it.

I have to agree with you there. I'd much rather a Striker Extreme style heatpipe cage than the blocks of aluminium typical today.

I've had this Xonar DX for 3 years and it's PCIe. In all honesty, if anyone has bought a PCI Sound Card in the last 5 years they shouldn't expect to be able to use it by now. You've been able to get PCIe versions for at least that long with zero reason not to go for it over PCI unless you physically lacked the slot.

For reference, we've had PCIe for 10 years and the last time PCI was on an Intel chipset was in ~2010.

Agreed. I want more than 4 cores, plus if Haswell-E OCs at least as well as Haswell it'll be very future proof.

I had an answer from Gigabyte some weeks ago, the new Z97 chipset boards will be released during week 18, which is the last April week and then I was reading rumors the new boards will come in mid May...

Well, i can always buy my other parts first and just hold out on the z97 boards..will current haswell be compatible with the z97? Some say yes, some say no...

TBH I'm not entirely sure but if they will I'd say to hold out for the processor too if you're not going to get a board, unless you have a chip already, totally up to you however, you may want the improvements in the new chips unless you're more interested in broadwell, I myself have decided to sit out until Devils Canyon drops, I dont want any regrets especially since I've done some research on overclocking and some people are struggling to get 4.2Ghz and are appalled by the increased temperatures over previous generations.
