Z97-ws

In the past few days I got my hands on a new ASUS Z97-WS. Should be arriving after the holidays.

I decided to get the WS because I cannot afford to sell/write-off my compatible CPU's/Memory by switching to a new platform, i.e. 270. Currently I have two CPU's and two sets of RAM. Too much of a loss for only at best a 5% boost. I'm good for a lifetime! Especially with that PLX chip on the board Anywho, saved a bundle going this route as opposed to changing chipsets.

Question:

Why the Intel 750 instead of a Samsung 960 Pro mounted on Angel Wings?
