    x58 won't be end of life until the end of 2011 when the 1366 socket replacement (socket 2011) actually surfaces. 1156 however, that is basically ending its life in about 3 months when socket 1155 fully settles in.

    Just a note the reviews of the 2600K are nothing short of extremely impressive... The only thing that makes me want to change to this platform is the inabiity for my Rig to sleep properly while overclocked. This seems to be a flaw in the memory controller on the x58 platforrm...

    X58 won't die till October 2011. After that, there's LGA2011 and X68 chipset.

    Soon, Intel will release new six-core LGA1366 processors (which will make i7-970 "affordable"), that will keep X58 afloat till then.
