    So, I’m not upgrading to 12th Gen Intel for a while. And I need more than 16GB of ram. I have been running just 2x8GB. And enough time has gone since that last fiasco with that crappy memory I bought on Newegg. So it’s time to try again for some DR sticks lol

    You guys think upgrading to a dual rank 2x16GB set would be worth it for my 11900K/Z590 Dark? I keep reading and seeing the benefits.

    I am considering like DDR4 3600 CL14. And I can further OC it from there. Or maybe even just 3200CL14 would be ok.


    Any recommendations?

    Make sure whatever you get it has Samsung B-die for the IC. I would recommend going with a 4000 kit (or higher) because the ICs are better bin quality than the lower clocked sticks and will likely overclock higher and be more stable.

    Let me know if you want another 11900K to use in your other desktop. I have a brand new boxed retail one that has never been taken out of the plastic clamshell. I have been trying to find a legitimate excuse to install it, but the 10900KF has too much performance tilted in its favor and I can't see myself doing it at this point. I'd like to have the third M.2 NVMe slot and PCIe 4.0, but I keep landing in the "doesn't really matter" camp.

    The 11900K is running strong. Unfortunately I had to upgrade to a newer OS build in order to get Battlefield 2042 to work. The bad new is, this newer build version of Windows is not nearly as quick as my normal/older Windows 10 LTSC.

    Anyways, this is 5.4Ghz. And it runs well for a daily frequency. The memory is beastly for single rank. I just need a dual rank set now to make it run even better.

    R15 managed 2,780. With the right OS this is easily capable of much more. However, I still can’t catch my own 10850K lol. And the 10850K is at only 5.3Ghz.

    Down to $1549.99.....

    Only $150 off my buy price! I'm tempted to pick one up now and sell my Strix 3080 but let's see if something Black Friday happens to punch it down a bit more.

    Battlefield 2042 wouldn't work at all with Windows 10 LTSC 2019? Do you know exactly why?

    Battlefield 2042 requires Windows build 1941 or later. My build was like 1803 or something like that.

    Man that's some BS there. So now we have a required Windows build version in addition to required driver versions?

    At least for the "required" driver versions thing, one can usually bypass it by clicking "skip" and giving a nice middle finger to the game. Is there no way to bypass a Windows build version requirement? I can't think of any legitimate reason the game would need that specific build or newer.
