Default Where are the Haswell mainstream reviews?...

Guys, please help me out here and even laugh at me if it is justified (no, don't actually laugh it'll hurt my feelings).
Where are the reviews for the new mainstream Haswell chips? The i3 and i5's. I haven't been following hardware too intensely for the past while but I always remember reviews coming out the day of, or even before, the official release. And since I am building a new PC I was eagerly awaiting their release and the flood of review articles that normally accompany the chips.
But no reviews :(
So does anyone know if they are they still in the works (specifically one from HC)? Am I just being impatient? These chips have been out for more than a week now!!!

Think your being a bit impatient TBH, there have been lots of releases and reviews the last few weeks. 15 in the last 30 days and 20 since the start of August. And you know the high-end toys will be played with first. :)

We reviewed the i5 in our launch day article.

Thanks, I missed that initially. Giving it a read, and keeping in mind a low budget for my rig I'm wondering if the 4570 and 4570S, which you wrote:

These are both quad core CPUs without Hyper Threading which primarily target system integrators and they’ll be soon backstopped by a dual core, quad thread SKU.
will still be available for a lower price in the future? Or should I go for an i3 because it'll still be cheaper and probably run cooler... decision, decision.

Waiting patiently for more reviews to surface

If you mean the core i3 there is a review here in french. If you don`t know french just look at the numbers, should be self explanatory Intel Core i3-4130 et i3-4340 en test, Haswell moins cher - HardWare.fr

that is normal, Intel wants you spend as much as possible even if you don`t need it. Actually the article I linked shows the i3-4340 being at the same level with i5-2500k when comparing the medium numbers in gaming which in my opinion is great achievement. It proves that most of the games ( still ) are not optimized for multicore environments.
