Nice review thanks.

If I could get the same 4.80GHZ overclock with a 4970K that I have with my 4770K then I would definitely buy one but I'm not lucky with the silicon lottery

Very nice review Tom. Thank you for the time in trying to enlighten us about the differences from the 4770k cpu. I probably will get one for the Maximus VII Hero rig that I hope to finish in the next couple of months. The 4770k I have now is not a strong one from what I can see. I might get a better entry in the lottery with a new chip. I am also hoping you go back to the VII Hero board with the DC 4790k chip. Your review of that board was what made me buy it on day 1 when it came available. I really hope the combo with the DC chip will be a "Epic Win"

Thank You Again!

Good review as always Tom, the 500MHz boost over the 4770k is nothing to take lightly at stock and the improved thermals is always good.

While it is a shame that the average overclocks for DC is not any higher than vanilla haswell, the improvements are always welcome.

Hitman absolutely (heh) loves the overclocked 4790K
I almost lost it with that subtle joke
Great review, and I'm not sure why I don't know this but do you need a z97 mobo for devil's canyon, I currently have an i3 and want to upgrade by the end of the summer (no job makes it hard) so will it be the 4670k or 4690k that I'll be (hopefully) getting?

Hi

Did some checking on Intel's site and the 4790 and 4790K processors do run at different speed, in fact they call the 4790 a Hasswell processor, not Devils Canyon as shown in screenshot below:

If only the 4790k would actually be in stock somewhere already, whats the point of them doing a "release" and not actually releasing it??? >< my old Phenom II x6 1090T has gotten tired and i'd rather go for the 4790k than a hotter running 4770k just a few days or a week or two earlier but still i cant wait! xD

What are your temps like? and what are you cooling it with? It must be pretty darn high at those volts.
