    As far as I recall Int and Haste are tops as haste cap is insanely high. I could be wrong though....

    Gem straight intel as it effects your spell damage. Remove the spellpenetration one you have it's useless.

    Straight intel in all sockets unless matching socket bonuses.
    Intel/Haste for yellow/red
    Intel/Spirit for red/blue
    Haste for straight yellow unless breaking socket collor for that item.

    This is a general rule of thumb for socketing as a warlock. And it may not be 100% correct, but it certainly works out for me on mine. The objective is to get your spell damage as much as possible. Which is controlled by your intel now.

    Int/Hit for Blue if you need Hit Rating then.

    Yeah, spirit is useless now that locks do not gain any sp from it. It's best to gem int/hit for blue, even if this puts you over the hit cap. You will gain the socket bonus, and then can reforge any excess hit into haste.
    Red sockets should be int
    Yellow should have int/haste
    If you do reforge hit at all, make sure you're still above 17% when you're done.
