Pros: No reviews yet on whether or not this works on the Haswell platform, but the answer is YES. I bought 2 of these kits for 32gb and it picked it up fine. I had to tell it to use the 1600 profile because it was auto detected as 1333, but there were no problems doing that.

Cons: No regrets! 32gb RAM is awesome

Other Thoughts: Haswell i5
ASRock H87M Pro 4
Samsung 840 pro SSD

WEI = 7.7 on Windows 7

ASRock H87M Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I was sold on ASRock after my father-in-law's last build. It just plain worked, and the company is like ASUS junior. I didn't think I would like the GUI BIOS but it really is awesome and convenient. This board is top quality. The H87 "budget" chipset isn't really a watered down version of Z87, it is nearly the same thing but without the overclocking ability and without "Lake Tiny" ssd optimization. It runs rock solid and most importantly, it boots very quickly. The BIOS screen is only on for a second, and if you are running Windows 8 (I'm not) there is an option for ultra fast boot option.

Cons: No regrets. At this price point, ASRock delivered. Obviously at the time of writing, this motherboard has been out less than a week, but I feel like it will last for years. Time will tell!

Other Thoughts: Haswell i5 4670
32gb Gskill RipJaw 1600
Samsung 840 pro SSD

I use this mostly for running 5-10 VMs for pre-production testing and it does just fine with resources.
