USB 3.0 BUG in most haswell motherboards.,
Its a great processor but keep in mind that most current chipsets (Z87) in circulation have a bug that can prevent USB3 drives from working after waking up from sleep. You have to physically reconnect the drive or it just wont respond!
There's a way to find out which revision motherboard you have using "CPUz":
If you don't intend on using usb 3.0 storage devices in the near future you should be fine, I guess I'll wait a little while before the new C2 revision motherboards arrive (Due mid august).
Just thought you guys should know, Intel haven't been very transparent about this issue.

I still gave it a fair score of 4 stars out of 5. I just wanted to let people know of the bug because Intel have not been as transparent as I would have liked.
Like I said in the review it's still a great processor, I just don't want people to buy the CPU and then any old motherboard if they happen to have USB 3 HDD's ^^

Mr. Alan Sullivan says:
Review not in the wrong place, as CPU's need motherboard's before they can work. Buyers therefore need to know of any possible motherboard conflicts with the CPU.

Mr. R. G. Moore says:
I think Intel have been VERY transparent - ie they have not released any information. Or are you using the BBC/politicians' re-definition of the word 'transparent'. No, it does not add to the thread, but will help good English speakers to understand the comment which was made.

I'm using Rev. C1 of the Z87-A with this chip and have had no problems at all with USB 3 HDDs...
