With a 4770K either the Hero VI or the Hero VII, I have both with 4770Ks in them the VII runs cooler and OCs a little better, handles DRAM better, and didn't think I be saying it, but the BIOS is actually better on the VII and I loved the BIOS in the VI, Asus is continuing their mastery of the 1150 mobos, am hoping for even more when the 46 and 4790K CPUs are released :)

Originally I was thinking of going the 4690K with this and set it up as a gaming rig for use and primarily for clients to see and maybe even play on, as well as a work station and keep my HeroVI with the 4770K as a heavy workstation, but am now thinking a 4790K and for both heavy workstation and gaming, I figured it would be better, but it's better than I expected

Did the release for the 4790k get pushed back? I haven't purchased the 4770k yet but I don't want to wait a long time if you know what I mean.

Thinking June, haven't hear anything 'official' but I'm thinking June, maybe during or after Computex, they are planning some big OC competions there on mobos, CPUs and DRAM and just have to think that's a good Spot for Intel to 'unveil' Devils Canyon K models and the new TIMs

Oh yeah - that's 2011 - was just pointing out they are already advertising some CPUs, there should be more Sat and more Sunday and maybe even more Mon - some will depend on how sales go - if large demand on something - say the 4820K then they may drop the sale and change it to 4770K or something else - they will want to maintain some stock for after the week end so they don't lose sales to other places
