Got the day after it came out (needed 2x usb 3.0 headers on the mobo and ivy bridge doesnt support that from what i can find... long story). after it arrived, paired with a gigabyte motherboard (cheapest decent one with 2x usb3 headers on the motherboard. it booted fine and everything is working great.
encoded a standard length movie from mp4 to h264 in 2 1/2 minutes. the same movie took 10 minutes on a i7-950, with exactly the same specs otherwise (same video card, hdd, and ram - even the same cpu cooler).
this haswell chip ran average of 20c cooler (50-55 under load, vs 70-75 for the 950).
very impressed overall. also, i'm not planning to overclock for now, so i cant help on that front.
price - though about the same as a similar-range ivy bridge
