My System Specs


All things I've read point to Sept / Oct for 4930K / 4960X...yes still 2011 Socket.

Haswell = 1150 Socket = Mainstream

Ivy Bridge - E = 2011 Socket X79 = Enthusiast

I would never have chosen" to go "backwards" imo from an X58 Chipset 1366 Socket to anything, other than an X79 Chipset 2011 Socket. Then I have preferred top end Platforms, although hey may not be necessary, I would consider myself an "enthusiast" to a certain lower degree (no LN2 Extreme OC'ing).

The choice between Haswell 1150 v X79 2011 is one only you can make, based upon your Budget and what your expectations are :)

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
