There is no point at all in getting LGA1156/1366 if you are building a system from scratch.
Looking forward to your 2500k/2600k review. I hope to see:
2500k/2600k @ 4.6-4.7ghz+
Core i7 870/950 @ 4.0-4.2ghz+
Phenom II 1100T @ 4.0ghz+
Also, can you please show the improvement in POST speeds between boards with conventional BIOS (i.e., Gigabyte P67) vs. boards with UEFI (i.e., Asus, MSI, Asrock)?
Finally, it would be great to have some tests with 1st generation Core i7 processors to see improvement in performance per clock (IPC) (i.e., Core i7 870 @ 4.0ghz vs. 2600k @ 4.0ghz and Core i5 760 @ 4.0ghz vs. 2500k @ 4.0ghz).
