    I did two 6 and 7th gen (6600 and 7700) AIOs with TPM2.0 this week. All good. That was the first time I'd tried using 11. Leaving them for a week or two to see how the updates fare when i turn them back on.

    And only 4 times the speed in a benchmark and if you were working with 100GB files and moving it between the same drive... :)

    Yayyyyy fourtimes the speed...and four times the liability on 4TB of data! Not worth the risk for anything vaguely serious.

    Yeah but the whole mantra of this site used to be "Do it because you can, not because you need or can really afford it!". However, there now appear to be more of us older and wiser that now have mortgages, kids, power bills etc. that just ain't...

    Ya but unless you have a specific use case like massive file editing / multimedia, it is a complete and utter waste of everything for literally zero gain.

    Hmm I bought some Gelid a few weeks ago. At least they work. I would recommend getting pre-cut however.

    I remember the video of Linus testing out high Hz monitors for gaming and when scientifically analysed there is a benefit to them. But when they just tried gaming to tell which monitor was which over 60/75/120/144/240 etc. they really struggled...

    Other way around for me. It was a huge disappointment. I had the 'wow' factor switching from 200MBps HDDS to 550MBps SSDs and their much lower latency (I always felt its the drop in latency that is key over raw MBps) and after 5 years or so of...

    Ha I laugh at Boomers that go "Oh back in the early 90's we were paying 9% interest on our mortgages!" Yeah..9% on a £30,000 mortgage with 3 years left to go and a endowment worth £50,000 to pay it off. Real hard times.

    4x the disappointment?

    I have a couple of the top of the range Lexar Professional series that I bought a few years ago. They hit 400MBps+ and still working fine since 2017. Buying decent midrange USB sticks is the hard part. You just want one that will do say 50MBps...

    Also I have quad channel which helps 'widen' things too.

    You're always going to pay an early adopter tax when moving to a new technology like DDR5. You don't have to look that far back to see the same thing happened with DDR4. You were limited to 2133/2400/2666? speeds and within a year you had...

    Like I found with DDR4 early on, you buy in and get those super fast top of the range DDR4 3000 sticks then 4 months later 4000+ is about. I think its worth waiting a year myself then go in.

    TPM 2 wont work fully with X99 for 11? Your CPU (certainly) and board will still not be properly supported. Hence why I said a lot of gear will be dumped soon. Folks here will want a fully supported 11 setup and the value of non Windows 11...

    34% markup isn't that amazing. As we say in business. 10% for me, 10% for the taxman and 10% for a rainy day. They also have premises, staff costs etc. etc. Thats pretty cheap. Now of you want to get annoyed remember the prescription drugs...

    I would point out that the read speed of the Seagate 4TB 2.5" drive I had in a few weeks ago, topped out at 80MBps and by the halfway point was a scorching 20-30MBps. This was with large video files... If you want to live with that kind of speed...

    Looks like a lot of good capable hardware is set for landfill in 18 months time.

    Unchecky Keeps friends and family PCs and laptops clean. Also run it on mine cos even I get caught out when in a hurry.
