New Intel CPU's compatible with Motherboard?

Hi, so I'm thinking about upgrading my CPU. I've seen Intel are releasing the new i5 7640 and i7 7740, I'm getting rid of my i5 4430.

At the moment my motherboard is a standard ASUS H81M-Plus Socket 1150..

If anyone has the time to help me I have a couple of questions..
1. Are the CPU's any good?
2. Is the price difference between them any good?
3. Are they compatible with the motherboard?
4. If not, do you have a recommendation for a motherboard?

Thanks for any and all help!
