We can let others do the testing John and go by their results. I think there was this same type of discussion with the Ivy release too.

Haswell RAM issue
The Haswell has a much lower memory read than the Sandy Bridge and I wonder why. Any ideas? The Sandy is OC'ed to 4400 and the Haswell to 4200. The RAM is identical, GSkill Sniper 2133 2x4GB, but is OC'ed to 2200 in the Haswell, same timings, 9-11-10, 1.65V.
