    The main differences between Haswell-E (LGA 2011-3) and Haswell/Haswell Refresh (LGA 1150) is that Haswell-E offers more cores, more PCIe lanes, more memory bandwidth with quad channel memory support...

    Something like a Fractal Design Define R4 is higher quality. Still, airflow vs. noise is a difficult balancing act for cases. The more open they are, the better airflow and cooling can get, which...

    RAM should fit under the heatsink since it doesn't have tall heatspreaders that get in the way.

    Noctua is really nice, albeit a bit pricey. Water cooling is even pricier, but makes more noise. It can provide more cooling though, but that's certainly not necessary if you're not overclocking (the...

    Thunderbolt is the killer, because thunderbolt is pretty marginal for desktop usage.

    I would recommend an Asus Z97-A with the Asus Thunderbolt expansion card. Still kind of expensive, but nowhere...

    Much more powerful graphics card and some other perks. But 5K is a heck of a lot. Comparing it with desktop pricing* makes it seem preposterous, but for laptop pricing it may not be completely...

    They will only come down in price if AMD releases an R9 390X that beats it. The MSRP is high, the high prices are not due to a lack of supply.
