Too bad these don't work on the 1st gen Haswell motherboards. I've got a Haswell box that I wish I put a beefier CPU in, but I'm not buying a new mobo.

BIOS Update

+1. I've been running a 4790k on a Z87 board, and it works great.

Just make sure your mobo mfg has released a BIOS update with Devil's Canyon support for your particular board before purchasing (most have, but only for certain boards).

Well, my mobo (ASUS H87I-Plus) is on the compatible list, and the old processor has a decent resale value.

Here we go.

FYI, for anyone looking at TD and the price is $339 after discount, I can confirm B&M stores are still ringing up $309. In store the price is update to $349-$10 too, but at the register they are still coming up $309.
