    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    Not without stepping up to HEDT.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    I believe it will be. That will make things a lot easier for the developers. It will allow them to appropriately staff the project team as UE developers are common. Plus, they'll have a much better toolset and support for the engine.

    WC’ing blocks for MEM.

    It's simply not worth it.

    Intel 2022 Keynote

    All of these companies have cheated to win benchmarks and show themselves in the best possible light. It's been going on as long as these companies have been competing with each other.

    Running DDU leads to a Blue Screen 0xc000000e error code

    I've found that a simple uninstall plus reinstalling whatever you want generally works fine. Although, I don't usually drop back versions often, I have done it successfully with no DDU needed. The modern uninstallers for the GPU drivers and the drivers themselves aren't as bad as they were 15+...

    Running DDU leads to a Blue Screen 0xc000000e error code

    I've swapped between a 6700XT and a RTX 2080 Super on one of my machines several times without issue. I've also upgraded, swapped, etc. GPU's probably hundreds of times in various systems with no issues. Again, I said DDU was good for when you run into a problem but I don't think its necessary...

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    Yep, it's a double edged sword. On hand, losing drivers that way is really nice. On the other, the software itself is bloated and no doubt chalk full of stuff to spy on you. Not to mention, you have to be really careful not to install Norton Internet Security or other BS software.

    Running DDU leads to a Blue Screen 0xc000000e error code

    It's not 2005 anymore. There isn't any need to run DDU unless you have a problem. Generally you can install over existing drivers or uninstall one vendor's drivers to install another's without issues.

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    Depending on the model, it may not have an LLC setting. Cheaper and even midrange boards often don't have a lot of voltage settings or if they do, the increments of these settings aren't as granular as you would like as their voltage controllers are cheaper and lack the adjustment ranges of...

    What's shitty about the ASRock BIOS? That's actually a comment that I didn't expect. ASRock practically copied ASUS' UEFI layout, which is the best out there in my opinion.

    Help with understanding memory.

    It's an official specification of the maximum supported speed without overclocking.

    Two 1080p monitors in portrait mode anyway to make fullscreen gaming?

    You'll still have bezels in the middle.

    Going to try the Asrock 670E TaiChi.

    I've reviewed around 200 motherboards at this point. I've had more trouble with ASRock boards than any other brand. Their QC seems to be somewhat more inconsistent than other major brands.

    Help with understanding memory.

    Not only can you use the DDR4 3600MHz RAM, you can clock it to DDR4 3600MHz speeds.

    Wow.
