That's weird...[/QUOTE]

It is because the Blue has a single 1TB platter and the Black multiple 800GB platters.

Yet my 1TB Blue is faster than my 2TB black for backups. Wish they made a 2TB Blue - blue's are limited to 1 TB or less.

I think the BIOS change in the Z87 is merely to recognize the new processor SKU, nothing more.

Go for the Z97. The boards are newer, will definitely support Broadwell when it comes out, and have...

They are not the same (for one thing one is unlocked :D ). However the die is basically the same as the 4770. The changes they made and binning will give you a better guaranteed clock and it will run...

The 4790 and 4790k are different and not like the 4770 and 4770k. The 4790 is not Devils Canyon.

The 4790k is a 4790 with improved Thermal interface material (thermal paste) between the die and...

Those were cherry picked.

There has been a number of reviews on the engineering sample processors ([H]ard forms, vortez, legit reviews to name a few). The results aren't very impressive.

Doesn't seem that hard to delid. The problem with the original haswell was not only the TIM, but the gap between the die and IHS was too large. Delidders cleaned off the IHS glue for a smaller gap...

From what reviews I have seen on the engineering samples, the 4790k runs 6c cooler than the 4770k, but the 4790k may require more volts which may negate that.

Delidding has been giving 4770k...

Dude, I meant no sarcasm, why did you think that? I said maybe because I can't figure out for the life of me the why of the Z97 chipset. If I wanted to level any sarcasm it would be at Intel.

22% is noticeable otherwise why overclock at all? And this isn't an overclock, it is basically for free so why would you even consider choosing a process that performs less by 22%?

No it doesn't. Where in the world did you get that?

Haswell refresh = slightly better binning of the Haswell to get 100 MHz more.

But the stock clock on the 4790k is 4 GHz with a turbo boost up to 4.4 GHz - significantly higher than the 4790 @ 3.6/4 (by 22%). So if even if you don't overclock, the k is a better choice.

I'd check it. I know with my Asus, if I put a x4 card in that slot, the other 3 single lane PCI-e slots become unavailable, but if I put a single lane card in, the 3 single lane slots are available.
