    Apex is weird.

    I remember another user complaining and in the end doing RMA on an M12A. From those stories, it sounds like a sort of gamble. I wouldn't be comfortable taking an Apex mobo, that...

    Nice thread. M12E/i9-10900K here.
    I might take an i9-11900K just so I have a reserve, since I don't expect Adler Lake to catch up with what we have today.

    Is that a reasonable idea?

    Hi. Thanks for visiting.

    Yes, liquid cooling seems far superior for extending the life of the components, and for combating thermal throttling.

    Nice temps, and thanks for the compliments!

    Liquid colling seems so far superior to the plain airflow, even though results on my end are also rather good for a 3090: I am at the mark of keeping...

    Hi there.

    Thanks for responding. No worries about this, I am conducting own research independently of what comes in here, and will report.

    So far, I replaced the PCIe power cable to the 8-pin...
  6. Power 8-Pins: Which is Which in GPU-Z (e.g. ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 OC)

    Hi, folks.

    I've started observing the perfcap reasons in GPU-Z, and something interesting came up. A lot of throttling is voltage-related.
    I collected the stats for the three pins, and that...

    I aim lower, fine by even 4000 MHz CL15.

    By the way, I just checked M12E QVL. It doesn't seem to have been designed to take 1.55V RAM, so it's perhaps a bad idea to go for F4-4000C14D-32GTZR , and...

    Ah yes, about the gears, maybe they are the product of some characteristic that was noted, I wouldn't outright discard the 3733 MHz wall I observe with four sticks.

    Though, I am contemplating...

    I just wanted 32GB of 4000 MHz CL15 for once in my life. The F4-4000C15Q-32GTZR is in the QVL for the M12E, so is i9-10900K. It just didn't work.

    Interesting, I didn't know about the gears, but I noticed I can't push my F4-4000C15Q-32GTZR past 3733 MHz with i9-10900K.

    Why not 2x 16GB or even 2x 32GB? That will become a thing with 8k gaming....

    Hey, .morph. That is cool.

    I've seen Jay get a 4400 MHz as a plug and play thing with i9-11900K. Then also 5100 MHz. Though, I neglected to notice that it's just two RAM sticks. Yeah, 4000 MHz...

    Ok, the thermals sound all right. I also assume that the disk is reported as healthy.

    What is the temp of the drive when it does that? If the drive is too hot (there should be an operation temp range in its specs), the PC will stutter and freeze as the traffic gets throttled.

    Hi. I can't find evidence to current support for the 11th gen. There is not a single 11th gen CPU in the QVL:

    Wherever they place it, it will take space, and it will block something.

    My beef with its M12E position isn't really that big. It prevents me from mounting the graphics card underneath, as its...

    Hey morph., so are you running Z490 and the 11th gen Intel? Then you are giving me hope!

    Are you still keeping the RAM at 3733 MHz CL14? That is the highest point I found for my setup (M12E +...

    Yeah, ideally, I will be able to wait out one to two generations, then see who offers better.

    Can you mention some specifics; what happened to you?

    Ah, I see that they finally gave Z490 a forum. If together with Z590. Nice.

    A question; I was looking at my options in case that my i9-10900K dies. I can't get it again, but I could get an...

    I dropped the 3080 train, mostly due to the 10 GB VRAM thing. I wait for 3080 Ti, to decide between that and a 3090. Of course, I will have to take the monetary hit.

    Haha, for real.
