Question  Stock by M3Tz

This processor seems to be out of stock everywhere, When are you guys going to be this back in stock?

also I'm thinking of getting the Asus P9X79 Pro or the ASUS RAMPAGE IV FORMULA, would the pro suffer from overheating with a corsair h100 in a 600t case?

I've seen a few people complaining about I think they called it the vrms over heating due to the lack of airflow around the socket.

Stock is indeed hard to get hold of, no definite date at present for a large re-order :<.

Hard to answer the second question without knowing how ambitious you are planning to be with overclocking etc. Certainly running at stock speeds the H100 is overkill! Might be worth signing up to our forums at and posting some more details, I'm sure the community will be helpful (although they might insist that you provide pictures! ;)

Question  Go sandy or wait for Ivy-bridge? by mza

I'm contemplating to either buy this if its price drops enough or get the equivalent ivy bridge version when it comes out april 2012. I know its kind of super early but can you estimate how much the ivy-bridge? will the ivy equivalent cost the same as its sandy predecessor costs now? as this link implies?

please advise, my current wish list is...,,

I'll be picking a gpu somewhere around gtx560-580 too when I hopefully buy this monster in april(...or maybe after june exams. degree>gaming)

Unfortunatly channel partners and suppliers do not yet have this information (and would be under NDA even if we did) but I would imagine that would be a fairly safe guesstimate in terms of pricing.

I guess it's your call really. If you have a computer that can perform all the tasks you require then perhalps holding out for the next gen would be a worthy reward for you. If on the other hand, you have just experienced some sort of severe computer failure and have some essential mission-critial tasks to perform then you'll just need to take the plunge.
Personally, I'd wait it out and see how the new chips benchmark before diving in. That way you can see what new cards NVIDIA/AMD will release too.

PS: That's a nice system you're building there!

Comment by nothingspecial

Mr_bob_bob, Noctua are offering a free upgrade kit for the NH-D14 visa their website. All you need to provide is an invoice for the cooler and an LGA2011 chip or motherboard.

No CPU Cooler included by Shaun Adams

I thought that because this was a retail CPU that the Cooler was included, but it wasn't. would have been nice to know before i purchased.

Response by daniele
I thought that too! Noted, thanks

Question  What Motherboard ? by Dave K

Hi aria

What motherboard do you recommend with this beast ?

I'm personally a sucker for Asus so i am obviously
getting drawn towards the Asus Rampage IV Extreme
However not so sure if it's best value for money.

Your input would be extremely welcome, thanks.

Answer by mohamedA on Thursday, December 15, 2011
i believe this board would be a much better deal , you get 3 x 16 pci-e lanes 8 ram slots and many other features
