Soon Intel is to give the LGA 1050 socket it's last hurrah with Intel's Broadwell CPUs, Intel's first desktop 14nm part which will be available in as two Quad core chip of the i7 and i5 varieties.

The two upcoming chips are supposedly called the i5 5650C and the i7 5775C, and right now the reduction in TDP seems to have left these chips with good overclocking headroom.

A Broadwell Chip, an i7 5775C, has been shown at 5GHz on Air Cooling, at 1.419V, and running vPrime at 4.8GHz. The wPrime 32M test was completed in 4.399 seconds, which when compared to our i7 4790K, which also ran at 4.8GHz and did that same test in 5.569 seconds, shows that Broadwell does offer some IPC improvements over Haswell. However we will need to confirm this with our own independent testing when this chip eventually makes it's way to market. 

Who knows what temperature the system was running at, but being able to run at these kinds of voltages on an air cooler is no doubt impressive for a modern Intel chip.

Right now it is almost impossible to tell how far the average Broadwell chip will overclock, though if the IPC benefits of Broadwell do prove to be true we will see a great deal more performance than Haswell regardless of whether or not the average chip overclocks higher.

Almost 1.4v air cooled, not sure if I'm impressed or scared!!!
I get the feeling it's gonna be hot!!Quote

1.42v sounds scary hot but we'll see, im sure many of us will easily compensate some heat for dat 5 jigahertzQuote

What happened to the 'k-series'?
5775C just looks off to me.

Other than that, that's very impressive. I doubt it's stable though. Oh well, we'll get a confirmation when the new chips launch.Quote
