 SO rumor has it that if you live in the UK or in Canada you can preorder the new core i7 cpu. Of course you would be paying almost double what the projected price was for the 3 flavors but I guess if you want to make sure your one of the first one's to get it then you'd pay huh. Interesting though that there are no options to preorder in the U.S. yet. Me, I will attempt to get 1 when they do come out for the projected price previously stated and if I can't then I guess it wasn't meant to be. Anybody else here at HH gonna try to get 1 when they first come out. Curious I guess

I've read that in other forums and i think there is someone already doing review of their new x58. the thing is like everything in technology they got glitches...

if you wanna be one of the first the hopefully yours don't come with a glitch...

I really want one. I already have DDR3 so all I need is a new cpu and mobo. The girlfriend sees otherwise though.

Bob we know you got the money might as well go ahead and get them so you can review it for us! Since there out I might try to get me one instead of the current offering if there is a dramatic speed increase to justify it and I can come up with the funds.So you or Raid take the leap for the rest of us!
