when will it be released?

These modules are now available at Newegg for $80 for 8GB kit and $144 for 16GB kit...

Looks like are tall and would have problems with running into Cpu air coolers.

These modules were used in the Intel Z87 reviews with a Noctua DH-14 cooler used for fit testing.  While they are tall, the modules and that cooler fit ok.  See the MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming, ASUS Maximus VI Extreme, or ASUS Gryphon Z87 reviews for details...

That's because the Noctua NH-D14 uses a 120mm fan for the first push position. If you're using a big CPU heatsink with a 140mm fan that extends down past the heatsink (Phanteks/Thermalright, etc.) you're going to have more issues.

That would be a weakness in my opinion.

Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) allows you to overclock compatible DDR3 memory to perform beyond standard specifications. Not Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Platform)

Picking up two 2x4GB Kits to drop in the ASUS ROG Maximums 6 Hero/or Extreme with the Core i7 4770K been cooled by a Corsair H80i and power by of Corsair AX860i PSU, course it won't be until after September waiting for stable driver's and all.

Thanks for the Review PCPer, now to read the Haswell Review.
