The rear I/O is very nice. I like how clean it is except one thing. Do people still use/need the PS/2 port?
Personally I use PS/2 keyboard on my main PC. I think they are more responsive and are definitely recognised during all stages of booting up any PC.

That's kind of what I was thinking, but if I were to go buy a new keyboard and mouse, what is the likelihood that I could even find a ps/2 KB or mouse. Everything seems to be USB for that past 5-6+ years. I did a quick Amazon search and didn't find anything appealing. I work in IT and other than Docking Stations all of our Dell systems have decided to leave that port off since the Core 2 Duo era. We haven't received PS/2 keyboards since the Pentium 4 era.

looks like it's going to be a great year for hardware builders ...what a violent peace of art .. MSI did a great job at least from the looks of the board itself ...can't wait to see the Rampage V ......

PS2 you can press all the keys simultaneously. USB tops out at about 6. Some mechanical keyboards come with PS2 connections.

Yup it is! I purposefully held off Z97 and X79 on my main build to wait for X99 / GTX 880 and I'm thinking the wait is going to pay off, especially with all the sweet hardware that's being revealed in the next couple of months.

Aren't the Haswell-E chips supposed to come with Iris Pro? Where are the onboard video outs? Not like they didn't have space left on the board.

It is just useful when debugging OCs and such to have the integrated gpu available.

No. Iris Pro is available on Haswell and Broadwell-K.
