Intel today launched three new high-end Haswell-E processors for the brand new Intel X99 chipset based platform that was also launched today along with the new LGA 2011-v3 socket. This means that you’ll have to get a new motherboard with an LGA 2011 v3 socket, but your old LGA 2011 CPU cooler will still work as the CPU cooler mounting holes remain the same. This new platform also ushers in support for DDR4 memory! So, in addition to the new processor, chipset and socket, there is a major advancement with regards to the DRAM! Read on to see how it performs!

Sorry but I have to repeat myself: Until Intel won't go back to soldering the heat spreader (IHS) to the die, I will not upgrade my 2500k system because 80C on water cooling is a joke - especially for a $1000 processor! How can they cheap-out on expensive parts like that?! I bet this processor would be closer to 60C when OC'd if the IHS was soldered to the die! It would probably be able to reach 4.7Ghz as well and be stable when running cooler. Shame on Intel for changing solder to TIM! I also think, if more people would protest and boycott this practice, they would be forced back to solder!
