    These new 'overclocking' chips don't seem to be overclocking very well...

    I guess you could say liquid nitrogen is air, just very cold (and you don't need a fan for it)

    So another underwhelming refresh chip from chipzilla. Must be running out of ideas as AMD havent released anything new in a while

    Perhaps you did get a less than average chip there. But either way, compared to Sandy, what followed has been a gradual decrease each time in terms of OC'ability. I tweaked 5,4 out of my 2500K but could only manage 5.0 on my 3770K. No intention of getting a Haswell K. There is no justification whatsoever. Have a Haswell non K and that will do for now.

    Re: Reviews - Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon (22nm Haswell)

    A regular non K 4790 is the CPU to go for...4Ghz turbo is plenty fast enough, £50 cheaper and will be more than adequate for any app/game in the next 2-3yrs (probably a lot longer).

    If you feel the need for overclocking speed...replace it with a 14nm Broadwell in Q1/Q2 next year, I would hope the die reduction will finally deliver 5Ghz on air that everyone seems so desperate for.

    And this is why Intel don't have to try - they just need to update their packaging every twelve months.

    Re: Reviews - Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon (22nm Haswell)

    I wonder if it might be worth trying to include some games that do utilise more cores in these tests? We understand a lot of games aren't highly threaded but more and more will start to so it would be nice to see how these chips perform?

    I was looking forward to this but i might just get the G3258 for some OC fun and save myself some money!!

    "replace it with a 14nm Broadwell in Q1/Q2 next year" will require new MB & RAM.

    Not according to these sources:

    http://elitegamingcomputers.com/inte...-chips-q4-2014

    http://wccftech.com/intel-broadwell-...consumers-2014

    Broadwell should still be on 1150 & DDR3. Haswell-E supports DDR4, Broadwell should get support for it a year later.
