So when will the new revision (the ones without melting sockets...) M4E's be hitting shelves?

It's doesn't appear the problem is a real concern. The incident I reported has been completely isolated so far

very impressive for a "mid-range" platform. Gives me goosebumps on what LG2011 will be capable of

I love Maximus IV Extreme, one of the best features, performance.

Its a great motherboard but i could not justify spending that amount on a mainstream socket, With 2011 enthusiast socket just around the corner the cash would be better saved for that tbh.

I don't think it's really a problem. Only 1 or 2 reports of it so far.

LGA 1366 vs LGA 1156 was an almost Nil-Case scenario.
The only "performance" difference was that LGA 1366 got two, 6 Core CPU's.

I wouldn't expect much from LGA 2011 besides an increase in RAM bandwidth which won't mean squat real world.

I agree, 2011 will be for extreme benchers, not the regular guy.
