At least you do not have to worry about the SATA being messed up on these. =) And there are plenty chipset offerings with support for USB3 and new new SATA

Guru3D: Today we'll put the Intel Core i7-2600K and Intel Core i5-2500K processors to the test, we will pair the 2600K processor with the Intel Desktop Motherboard DP67BG and also run a test with the Intel Core i5-2500K processor on an Intel DH67BL motherboard.
