So I was thinking of getting a 2600K and an Asus Maximus IV Extreme mobo :( - Page 2

Buy it now. Play and enjoy it for the time being. When the new one comes out, sell your current board/system and grab a new one. That's how you can get to enjoy new technology w/o waiting forever.

Unless you are putting the chip under LN2 or as noted above going triple gpu, the Maximus is frankly overpriced.

There are several sub $200 boards that will push a 2500k or 2600k as high as your cooling can manage.

The Asus P8P67 Pro comes to mind.

Also do you need HT? If not again save $100 and go with the 2500k. They provide the same overclocks and HT is pretty useless unless you have specific apps that benefit from it (Games do not!).

^^This. What's the point of buying a board with that many slots and not using them?

And bragging rights? Try running 3 screens and push the eye candy up!

I have the combo and love it.

It really depends on your budget situation, but even if you dont plan on running 3 cards it is an awesome board. If your financially secure and the rest of your system is high-end-ish i say got for the maximus.

It's the little things that make this board great... like how every fan connector is a 4 pin pwm... how every usb on it is usb 3... the extra three temperature sensors included... ect

I bought my first maximus when the first came back to newegg. i had planned on getting a deluxe or an EVO, but saw the m4e and couldnt wait.

I love the board and if i had to do it over again and all 3 were in stock i'd pick the maximus.

Well I have some disposable cash these days, so I figure get something top of the line for once in my life

I ended up buying the same combo.

I was originally going to buy the 990x to tinker with, then saw the MIVE, and figured I might as well build an entire new system for the price.

Could not be happier.

If you have the cash, go for it.

M4E is way too expensive for an 1155 board. Save your money for Q4 2011 and the enthusiast socket.
