I believe Haswell is due around May, next year. Unfortunately, no FIRM info yet. Apart from vague Intel "teasers", a lot is rumour. I doubt the prices will be hugely different to Ivybridge, otherwise there would be no incentive to change, unless they were fantastically superior (can but hope!)

Almost forgot your issue re noisy fan. I have no direct experience of Foxconn boards, but I believe there is some sort of software or bios update to improve fan control. Like I said, I'm not certain, but may be worth an email, to their tech support, to ask the question.

Hmm fair enough , i've read on many forums and posts that the stock Coolermaster V8 fan is a quite noisty , so i'll go for a fan replacement ( i have a new Xigmatek CUP fan which i never used , which is virtually silent , ill just replace it with this)
