At higher gear levels, haste exceeds Intellect. Thus, at higher gear levels, many mages will gem for haste over INT. Regardless, players should sim themselves and note which gemming strategy is best for them: Int or Haste.
personally i feel that you should gem to haste caps

W/ getting your 2nd or 3rd hast cap.
Have you thought of skipping the simcraft step and just running your armory thru AskMrRobot instead? I see it having you gem Int, Int/hit, Int/Haste and doing some reforging to Haste but certainly not recommending you gem straight Haste.
Well if we are to believe simcraft, at some point it makes sense to go full out haste and switch to using the icy veins glyph. At what point that is I do not know.
I am curious as to what you guys recommend doing if your over the haste cap. Raid buffed i am over 30% if i get the spell haste buff, if the shadow priest isnt in the raid i am still at like 29.9%
Most of the mages i have talked to on my server seem to feel there is no such thing as too much haste for frost, granted my ilvl is not that high only 490 currently.
Very interesting indeed. It looks like I get ~760 DPS from 160 int, ~777 DPS from 80 int/160 haste and ~794 DPS from 320 haste.
I'm gonna have to do some re-evaluating here...
Well you want to hit the crit cap for frost at 28% then gem all reckless gems.
I gem for as much Int as I can get. While still using int/haste int/hit for socket bonuses.
I've been using Simcraft for my stat weights and its usually around [Int:1.00][Haste:0.45][Crit:0.40][Mastery:0.35]
I'm not sure how reliable simcraft is these days though. It told me today that mastery > crit, I simmed what I would be if I reforged crit into mastery and my simulated damage plummeted.
