In The News From around the web

The Z97 motherboards from ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, ASRock have already detailed by us prior to their launch and you might want to check them out if you are in the market to get hands on latest products.
The Core i7-4790 will also be available in ‘S’ and ‘T’ variants which will retail at the same price of $303 US but will feature lower clock speeds since they are aimed towards low TDP and low power platforms.
Again, we'll get a better idea of our temperature numbers when we start to look at more motherboards.
This means that the overclock amount will often be only 3 - 5% due to more often than not a 103 - 105 BCLK being achieved.
