Hi!

I am working on my first build, and I was wondering whether I should go for the i7-4770K processor, or wait until september for the release of the i7-4820K.

I don't think this is a repost, because this thread is specifically about the CPU.
The reason for the other post was to get opinions and advise on all the components :) 
(hence this being in other sections)
Though I do get what you're saying. I'll keep it in mind for future thread posting.

The first article today on this site about it is pretty lukewarm. Looks like another pass.
