Default Who's planning to upgrade to Haswell?

With Intel's Haswell right around the corner, I'm wondering who here is planning on making the move? It's supposed to be the most power-efficient desktop / server chips that Intel has ever crafted, and to be honest, I find that a lot more interesting than the 10-15% performance boost.

We'll of course have a review on the Core i7-4770K once it officially launches. As a hardcore enthusiast, I can't help but wish a six-core came along with this launch but... we can't have it all.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
