X58 is a dead end, but you can still go that way if you have to get into something today as the P67 are now recalled.

Unless you are going past 1080 there is really not any performance loss in 2x8 lanes as opposed to 2x16.

If your going over that, you will note a small, likely 3% or less loss. That loss is within the range of what you will be able to get benchmark wise based on what your cards will OC to.

I decided at the last moment to go SB rather than X58, and I am happy I went that way once I saw the numbers I did.

If you don't need anything today, I would wait for Ivy.
How many volts is the 4.7Ghz pulling btw, just wondering since your 48 hours stable
