Help with Compatibility!!!

Hi all, I'm having an argument with myself about whether I should buy a Corsair AX 860i/850 now with the 15% promo code and rebate or wait. I will be doing a Haswell build with it, and I'm not sure if the Haswell Motherboards will still have a 24 pin connector, 8 pin CPU connector, so on. Should I buy now, get a deal, and hope that Haswell will work? Or should I wait? Thanks in advance! (I apologize if this is in the wrong forum category). Please help fast! the promo code only lasts through Thursday!

First up...

Corsair + Newegg = rebates and sales almost daily and frequently on the same products. So odds are that AX860i will go on sale again. Will future sales be as good of deal? I don't know. I jumped on the AX860i now but I'm doing a build now.

Second up...WAIT...

If this article rings true...then you better wait because things could be changing. http://technewspedia.com/rumor-socket-lga-1150-motherboards-bring-new-atx-power-connectors/

I am not an expert in this field so take this with a grain of salt, but my understanding of it is that a 24 pin connector seems like the standard of it and same with the CPU. I could be wrong on that so don't quote me on it exactly.
