x79 have the advantage of:

Quad > Dual ch mem
2 16x > 1 16x pci-e
6-core > 4-core cpu's

All together a much stronger and powerful platform.

How ever, I totally see how someone rather wait for x99 especially this close to launch.

I admire your system! My next case has to be a case labs thumb.gif

I removed the ihs on my 4770k .. you?

Never thought about it, until you brought it up (removing the heat sink). Your thoughts on it?

I used to ALWAYS spend $1000+ on my CPU, until AMD became irrelevant (miss AMD FX-58 and AMD FX-60) and Intel started IGNORING enthusiasts. Bull**** how behind Intel EE CPUs are! These chips used to LAUNCH the new line. That's when I started going with the Core 920, 2600k, and now 4770k. Yes I do somewhat regret not having quad channel memory, and having an extra 16x slot, but I am looking forward to DDR4 and the new platform. If I really cared I'd order a Rampage IV right now, but just not interested in an IVY bridge EE. Its not like my rig will be slow, it will last me until the next one smile.gif

With water cooling it's not necessary, but it stabilized the cores on my 4770k .. and others shown same type results. And that nurture a higher core-synchronised clock. My 3'rd core was always 10°c higher than the others, and all of them had very independent temps. After I read up on it I decided to delid. Earned 200mhz 4,6-4,8 by doing it.

Nothing you need or must do, just a way of making the 4770k put in more work for you.

What kind of benchy scores do you get btw?

Mostly interested in your firestriker score and catzilla.
