Core i7 up for pre-order

In the UK and Canada

So, the much awaited Intel Core i7 aka Bloomfield is finally available for pre-order, at least if you live in the UK or Canada. Overclockers UK and PC Village in Canada has put up the all three models for pre-order and OcUK are even listing them as available from the 31st of this month, that's less than four weeks away.

In terms of pricing, well, they're not going to be cheap if you pre-order from OcUK as they want no less than £258.49 (€334/$454) for the Core i7 920, £469.99 (€607/$826) for the 940 and £822.49 (€1,062/$1,446) for the Core i7 965 Extreme Edition, all prices including VAT at 17.5 percent.

However, if you live in Canada and pre-order via PC Village, you'll end up spending a whole lot less as they're listing the Core i7 920 for C$339.95 (€229/£178), the 940 for C$649.95 (€439/£340) and finally the 965 Extreme Edition for C$1,099.95 (€742/£575), all prices in this case excluding sales tax.

In related news we've heard a rumour that the Core i7 920 might not be available from launch, at least not to end users and it might be delayed as far as into next year, as Intel wants to sell off stock of its Core 2 based processors. However, we have as yet to verify this from more than one source and it might depend on the market as well.

You can find the OcUK listings here and the PCV listings here

they can take the ram just fine, its the voltage the manufacturers have the higher ram running at, but what mother board right now can actually OC to the point that 1333 is not enough?
