    Well, the 10900KF loves Windows 7 like all of the CPUs that came before it... in spite of the driver terrorists not "supporting" Windows 7 with 10th Gen. I'm faking it with a USB WiFi that has Windows 7 driver support. Screw 'em. (Also one of the reasons I chose KF is no iGFX since now Intel only supports Windoze OS X DCH trash.)

    The only person that beat me is running sub-zero cooling at 6.6GHz (versus 5.3GHz for me) and just barely beat me with his Windoze OS X barf bucket. This proves what an inferior pile of crap Windoze 10 is. They can't even make it work better on the latest hardware. Losers!

    Windows 7 FTW! Never surrender to the Master of Filth. Yeah, I know... eventually won't have any choice, but it won't be something I do with a happy heart when I'm stuck drinking from their urinal. Windows 10 is such a messed up pile of [insert vulgar term for feces]. For now, I will have satisfaction in the knowledge that I am contributing to the statistics that show Windows 10 adoption isn't anywhere near 100%. Every example like mine helps deprive them of the success they crave, but do not deserve.

    It looks like a fun system to learn and bench :) As for the voltage being weird, did you keep TVB on?

    No. Still testing, so the verdict is still out. But, that was one of the first things I disabled. I ended up working part of the weekend so my testing was abbreviated and I did not have time for the delid yet. Temps in posts above are with Phobya NanoGrease Extreme.

    OK, got the delid and bare die setup done and man... what a difference. Load temps are about 15-20°C less. Check it out.
    Here are some photos of the parts
    And, here are some nice runs with some info on max temps. Load voltage at 5.4GHz is roughly 1.350V

    The boot logo for the BIOS was kind of plain, so I added my own.

    Wow... thats almost the same power draw as my 3990X 3.7GHz... I only draw 320W at 3.7GHz in Cinebench

    That is a beast CPU. Did you actually have a real business need for it, or just bought it simply because it is a beast CPU?

    I'm an enthusiast unfortunately I bought it for the sake of owning it however I run Folding@Home on it 24/7 so at least it gets some use...

    I had a difficult time deciding what to do. Probably the toughest I can remember when it came down to deciding what to buy. The item first and foremost on my list of "must-have" characteristics is excellent overclocking abilities. I love most of what I am seeing from Ryzen, but the unfortunate thing is that it doesn't tick the first and most important box on my list. Stock results are great and if I planned to run everything stock then Ryzen would be the way to go.

    Everything in CPUs is grossly overpriced now and availability is poor. I initially thought of buying a 10980XE to drop into my X299 Dark. I decided against it for several reasons, but availability is nearly non-existent. I thought about moving to 3950X, but that is also grossly overpriced and I literally could not find one for sale over the course of about a month. I did eventually find a few on eBay selling for twice MSRP and I was like "oh hell no" and there's still the poor CPU and RAM overclocking capacity. I finally landed where I am now. CPU and motherboard combined were under $1,000. Yeah, it's still 14nm, but it seemed like the best bang for the buck for something that overclocks well enough for me to derive some pleasure from it.

    I am finding pleasure is getting harder to come by and I am not optimistic about the future. I guess we will see what happens. As beastly as it may be, it is very unlikely I will ever be willing to spend as much on a CPU as the 3990X costs. It would need to handle at least a 50% overclock and run the RAM at least 4000MHz with tight timings, but that is what I would expect from a CPU that costs ~$500 so the expectations playing field is level in that respect.
