    I've had the dark for one day and can highly recommend it. love it. prob just the best z690 you can get . Personally i won't be buying one as between board and customs tax would be 1.5k and i can't do that atm.

    They really doubling down on that arm tier of thinking
    Maybe it will end up good but from what I've seen on benchmarks I'll wait.
    Been itching to try a incel build for over 6 years now

    How does it work any way do the E cores run background shit like Windows and p cores run games? Apparently it's all messed up in w10 with stuttering but not 11

    Guys, back to the old Windows 10 vs 11 thing. Who's using what and are you having any issues running Windows 10?

    I've got a 12900KF and still on Windows 10 as Windows 11 gaming performance last I checked seemed worse and I mainly game on my rig so want best performance for that.

    Absolutely zero issues and rock solid. Compared to 9th and 10th gen, 12th feels the best for me in speed/stability/no issues. Skipped 11th gen.

    I'll upgrade to Win 11 one day if reports state for gaming it is better than 10.

    Cheers. I'm running the 12900K on Windows 11 but I kind of hate it. Works fine but my workflow is so much better on Windows 10. I was mainly wondering if there was any truth in the "thread director works better on Windows 11" marketing speel.

    I had a weird hitching/stutter in 11 that I couldn't resolve until I rolled back to 10 which works perfectly. I really wanted to like 11 but it's a clunky mess IMO

    No surprise there imo. Hence why I"m stil on w10 & probably will be at least until the end of this year.
    W10 for gaming all the way as far as I'm concerned with the rig in my sig, you can't beat yrs of driver maturity & 10 has it.
