My 920 was still fine for my needs, but I really needed a new motherboard and that was the deciding factor. Was missing UEFI, USB 3, native Intel SATA 3 to name a few I'd use daily... Also my X58 board had several odd issues with it and I was tired of it drawing ~450w under load from the wall at 3.2Ghz. With Haswell-E not due for about two more years I bit the bullet and upgraded.

I was amused to pull my OS SSD out of the X58 rig and plug it into the Z87 board and have it boot up without a single complaint. Gonna image it then try a fresh install of Win 8 for awhile... can just image back if needed.
