Intel's "Haswell" CPUs and Boards arrive

images.jpgIntel's replacement for the Z77 "Ivy Bridge" LGA1155 platform has arrived - the Haswell generation is an evolution from it's predecessor, bringing with it reduced power consumption and efficiency gains.

Like Ivy Bridge, they come in Quad-core single-threaded i5 and Hyper-threaded i7 models, and have graphics included.

Overclocking with an entry-level pre-built watercooling kit from Corsair is apparently very easy, according to HardOCP.

Points to note:

The new CPUs use a LGA1150 socket, so they're not compatible with any previous LGA1155/1156 boards.

Coolers and DDR3 RAM made for LGA1155/1156 boards will be fine to use with Haswell CPUs and boards
