With all the exciting for the upcoming Haswell platform, I figured it be nice to see what everyone's excited for. Can't wait to see what everyone is going to do mod wise!

I am most likely go with ASUS, however I am a lot disappointed in the look of the new boards. I was hoping for more water cooling integration in their boards. From what I seen, the volts needed to get a good OC are crazy low. So that could be the reasoning behind that. What it is going to be come down to is the price pt. to performance.

Deciding which board to go for before it's even released is pretty silly. From what we've seen though the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC will be the best overclocking board.

Does the LGA 1150 version of Haswell and/or the Z87 Chipset support more PCIe 3.0 lanes than Sandy Bridge/Z77?

like 16x/16x/16x or even 16x/16x/8x?

I voted for the Giga.  I've got a UP7 now and I wouldnt trade it for the world, so I'm hoping the next gen is just as good!
