Please, could someone with a recent August version of the Z87-WS board (or Z87 Intel series) kindly
run CPU-Z and identify if the mainboard Southbridge Intel Z87 Rev. is C1 or C2 thank you.
2nd wave of Z87 ROG series transitioned to Haswell C2 chipset conversion; but, haven't found news
regarding non-ROG Intel platform series Z87-WS/Deluxe/Dual/Pro/A/Expert/Plus/K/C models.
I have a feeling I'll be waiting until Sept/Oct before C2 reaches Z87 Intel series boards.
Is there perhaps a specific model version/code/serial sequence number of the Asus Z87-WS
w/C2 update I can search/confirm with a retailer before purchase?
Only found this info browsing the web..

Features of the Z87-WS workstation model are great, PLX PEX (8747) bridge PCIe 3.0 x16/x16/etc,
SATA/eSATA/mSATA and S/PDIF ports.
Many consider the USB3 C1 bug a small nuisance impacting a few devices; but, I've got many
superspeed external USB3 controller storage/devices and I use S3 sleep mode.
