i don't see much reason to upgrade from my normal broadwell cpu. the overclocking is in line with what i've read and experienced with my 5775c. there isn't anything WRONG with broadwell-E, i mean, i would get one if i had tons of cash just to do some testing and to have an x99 build.
there is just SOMETHING about broadwell and its inability to clock higher then 4.3-.4.4ghz. i don't even have temp issues now that i got a kraken x61 cooling my cpu and i still wasn't able to get stable over 4.3ghz with any voltage with load (premiere exporting). yes i'm able to post and get a screenshot with 4.5ghz but its just not going to be that way for long.
i was disappointed to see so many reviews using boards other then asus, this isn't a shill thing but its a compatibility things i've noticed with broadwell in general where asus seems to support all the functionality correctly
