    Well, I do have to agree with HW's comments about the OC Key... I have two for the RIVE and none of them want to stay in their place... the screws does not work at all to tighten them to the VGAs...

    The REAL question is if the 1150 Intel CPU's will be worth a damn, let alone spending money on upgrades

    If the rumors are correct then it should be worth it for the overclocking potential alone.

    Hmm, I never had that prob W/Asus 5850s nor MSI 7870s. As a matter of fact I remember once having to loosen the screws W/needle nose pliers bc it was just a smidge too tight. However, even when loose they were hard to twist. But we digress... NTIM.

    Overclocking is useless to me if it is not rock stable.

    Yes, I just noticed, in the tags at the bottom, it says "TUF Gryphon • TUF Z87" so the Gryphon is the TUF - "Thermal armor" board, and the Z87 Deluxe is a high-end mainstream desktop board.

    We probably won't see the ROG X99 Haswell boards until sometime after summer - even the teasers.

    When I 1st mentioned that the Gryphon would be replacing the Sabretooth...I didn't even look at the tags lmao, I saw it in the article's title....and the color of the writing on the board made it obvious too
