So, hit a snag and I thought I'd communicate it here because it might help someone else.

If you are planning to use the Intel CPU graphics, (Intel HD 2000/2500/3000/4000) you need to have a motherboard with DisplayPort to get resolutions higher than 1920x1200. I had assumed I could use dual-link DVI but the reference spec doesn't make use of dual-link so even DVI is limited to this resolution just like HDMI.

I am driving a 27" 2560x1440, so I had to swap out the motherboard for another one with DisplayPort. All is well now and the machine is a beast.
