    Damn I just bought an H105 and two SP120 fans while waiting for the Z97 boards to come out ! Oh well i'm only looking for mini ITX boards just now so no big loss really. What a bargain for anyone looking at a normal ATX build though !

    OK, I was going to order stuff for my new Z97 build in June, but this is too good a deal to miss out on, so I'll order the Gaming 7 bundle on Monday.

    It's going to be torture having a shiny new Mobo & water cooler just sitting there for a month.with no CPU to go in it though.((

    Thanks - fixed! YEah the mini-ITX gaming board does look tasty doesn't it?

    Nice one Hustler :D The new CPUs are hopefully worth waiting for - with the better core/IHS attachment I'm hoping for Sandy Bridge overclocking and thermals but we'll see :D If you're desperate you could pick up a pentium - they're less than £40 at some places atm. Then keep as a spare or sell it.

    Actually I was planning to buy a MSI Z87 MITX board before the tangible news of the new Z97 boards became a close reality. And I do actually prefer these to the top end ASUS boards just now, Tasty - Hell Yeah!

    Sadly rumors say the vanilla Haswell refresh isn't all we may have hoped.

    I'm not even sure they are using the better core/IHS attachment on the non K series.

    You mean in terms of raw performance increase - well maybe not but till we get our mits on the we won't know for sure- but they didn't test a K-series chip. It's the overclocking potential I was referring to ;) Also there's little need for better thermal transfer for non K-series CPUs - it's only when you're gunning for high overclocks, ie 4.4GHz and above that heat can build up.
