    Out with the new/In with the old.

    I am watching and will wait a few weeks to jump into the Z87 realm because I can see that the newer boards are a bit overpriced right now.The board I was considering is at 400.00 currently and I think that is for the latest greatest people and I believe it will drop after a few weeks. I hope.
    I may just stick with my 3770k since its a decent bin that can do 4.6 @ 1.2v. Ill just need to get another Z77 mobo.I saw on some recent reviews of some people getting quite high temps on the 4770k when OCed at the same clock and voltage as thier 3770k. Like 15-20c higher. Seems delidding will continue. Thanks intel,for using the cheap tim,,,again.
    So today I will disassemble my rig and return the mpower board for a refund.Its works quite well but I got it as a temporary replacement anyway so back it goes.And I will put the PS back into the lynnfield system and use it again for a while.
    Where are the ROG Z87 boards by the way.I will admit I am a little hesitant about getting a MVIF and am taking a hard look at the Sniper 5 board that has some very interesting onboard sound features like the fact it is using a creative chip instead of realtek and you can also replace the opamps to suit your taste.But I would like to get some detailed specs on the maximus VI board.
    Anyway time will tell if the new chips are going to hot running compared to the 3770ks or not.Its probably just the initial release but damn those new boards are expensive!

    I'm guessing the reason we have seen none of the ROG Z87 boards is probably because they are still under NDA until whenever they are officially announced, most likely @ Computex this week
