  1. yes but it may require a bios update first
  2. "I want to be able to plug in right out of the box" currently only the H97 and Z97 boards work with devils canyon out of the box the older 1150 boards require a bios update. You would have to get very lucky and get a motherboard straight from the factory with the latest bios already installed.
  3. 4590 is not devil's canyon, it is haswell-refresh but yes the bios issue still applies

    ASUS has a flashing mechanism that works even without CPU installed I think

    Devils canyon is the codename for the Haswell refesh.

  9. Devil's Canyon refers to the specific 2 cpus meant for overclocking, the 4690k and 4790K with new TIM and caps

    Haswell Refresh refers to the clock bumped haswell CPUs as a whole

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haswell_(microarchitecture)#Haswell_Refresh

    Quote:
    According to Intel roadmaps, Broadwell will be released in first half of 2015. Thus, Intel scheduled a refresh of Haswell, simply titled "Haswell Refresh", for the middle of 2014, which offers modest clock bumps over existing parts. These new parts would also be compatible with the new Intel's 9 Series chipsets (Z97 and H97). Later it was also revealed that overclockable parts, codenamed "Devil's Canyon", would employ a new and improved thermal interface material (TIM), which would improve their overclocking potential as something that had been problematic since the introduction of Ivy Bridge.
