Don't be suprised that the mainstream intel parts ala Core i7 2xxxk socket 1155 platform remain what peaple buy, cause the enthusiest platform is going to remain absurdly price.
I was hoping that lga 2011 release would be in the same ballpark as the 1366 release. Nothing more or less. 1366 was not reserved for extreme chips for the most part.

But yes..Intel is brutal when it comes to platforms. Too bad their stuff does what I want it to much faster than AMD's stuff (I don't want to thread crap..if you want to get into my comment PM me or new thread )
