    The only date I can share is "mid-2013".


    However, Intel themselves posted a launch date on the facebook site, but it is not listed in exact dates.. rather like a countdown timer...that doesn't actually count down. :p

    Yes, I have these products, and yes, those are pictures I took, not press shots, so soon...but I cannot disclose exact details. In fact, I can't tell you anything about what goes into these boards, but I can tell you the chipset names, like Z87 H87, etc.


    I don't have any NDA with Intel myself, but I have signed NDAs for every product I've shown in the last little while. All the pictures myself and other sites have shown are very much allowed, for the most part now. I've seen one or two with "restricted" details.

    Anyway, a couple more unrelated pics:

    Fixed. Really, that was after tidying the mess that WAS there. I used nearly everything that was there in that pic within about half an hour, including the extra chip.:banghead:


    Pretty affordable too, as the Li-Li bench was just $69. I want to get a few more, but they are pretty rare now.

    Not burn marks, pen marks for third monitor alignment in Eyefinity. ;) the one by the red "L" is actually a fluff from my pocket. :roll: I cannot fit both the test bench and the third monitor on my desk. My daily use rig is in a case under my desk.

    But yes, I do smoke, but a pipe(us civilized folk drink single malt scotch and smoke our pipes while counting our mad stacks of monies :p), which doesn't leave burn marks. I regularly just stuff it in my pocket and I carry my pipe around everywhere, haven't burnt my leg or anything after many years.

    That's what that metal spoon thing at the bottom is, is a pipe-cleaning tool.

    I'm not careless enough to let my stuff get burnt! For same you'd think so! :roll:

    Could be this as well, the red and black Creative plaques were plastic and served absolutely no purpose other than aesthetics.
    In this case though, it looks like a solid metal piece a few mm thick and is actually screwed to the board.

    No it is a WLAN card(WiFi module) whatever you call.

    Hey Dave, can you tell me what version of MemTest you are using? A link maybe? I downloaded the 4.20 and it was showing wrong info that my RAMs are in 64 bit mode.

    What if you flash a normal 6300 firmware to the AGN one?
