Haswell-E is not for everyone, especially since it requires a new socket and DDR4 RAM. For most people, one step down is where it's at, and in this case, that's Haswell. Better yet, the Intel Core i7-4790K is a Devil's Canyon part, which is essentially a refreshed Haswell part with improved Thermal Interface Material (TIM) and additional capacitors for smoother power delivery. You' won't find a better processor for the money.
