AMD GET YOUR SCHIIT TOGETHER! I'm stuck with an 8350 and intel is just zipping by...
I'm stuck with a crosshair formula-z, and for the amount of money for that motherboard, there's no way I'm converting to intel.

i thought amd stepped out of the desktop cpu race and were focusing on apu's?

Yes, and they're doing quite well with their kaveri models. However it's a shame that I made the wrong choice in investing a high end board for AMD CPU's and AMD probably won't make a comeback until late next year, or possibly even 2016. Looks like I'd be upgrading to intel if that were to ever happen though....

I chose 1155 socket i7 3770k last December, because I didn't want to change my motherboard. Now that I've saved a bit more, and looking for some decent Z77 boards, I find that most have disappeared and have been replaced with the new chip socket ones..:(

Yup, when I picked out my parts for my haswell build a friend(new to building) was asking why I wanted to go with it as the CPU side wasn't improved by much(compared to the iGPU).  That was pretty much the reason, z77 boards are too few and far between(at least for non-used boards).

as a side note, when they fail out of warranty I will probably just build my own watercooled system, I have already had one failure (the h100i) and rma under warranty

 

the other thing though is this case is wide open, so you have to use good quality quiet fans or you hear every sound, also want to put the hard drives in the power supply side, I made my own bracket, as that side doesnt vent directly out into your ears so bad
