    Not me. Still waiting to drop a 5000 series threadripper into my rig. =)
     
    Plus I'm at 4k, so a faster cpu isn't helping me out at this point.

    Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Ah yes. All GPU bound at that point. Idk I think that intel is onto something special with the pcore ecore.

    I’ve got stuff ordered for a new rig but I reserve the right to return based on benchmarks. I’d love to try an evga board but I’m done with EATX at this point so I guess I’ll hope for a z690 ftw. But evga boards are typically last out so I’ll likely be out of the market when they release for sale anyway.

    Do you think alder lake will make a huge difference between 1440p and 4k? I play at 1440p 240hz  and hoping I could get a really high and stable fps.

    At 1440p it will help some I would think.

    I ended up buying the Asus ROG Strix z690-A DDR4 as a placeholder while I wait for the EVGA board and ddr5 to come out. Hopefully, by then ddr5 will be much faster with tighter timings.

    I've been very open about processors. I want to see full 3rd party reviews of the new Intel processors.

    I will be getting in on the Intel 12th gens and upgrading from my 9900k rig..  but, waiting for reviews first.  Regardless of reviews, I'll most likely be jumping on the Alder Lake bandwagon though.  :)

    Didn't get in on the Newegg drop, so waiting to see who releases first.  Hoping Amazon or B&H gets good stock of the 12900Ks.

    Right now its like the reviewers are trying to get us excited before the reviews actually drop. They cant actually talk about numbers yet but the overall excitement seems really positive. I like the idea of efficiency cores making the overall windows experience a lot better with the hand offs.

    Intel is not allowing reviewers to release any info until the actual release date and I think that's a little unfair.

    Unless there's some kind of spectacular improvement over the 11900K, then I see little point for myself, plus it would mean getting a new motherboard for the new socket. Technically it's 24 cores for the 12900K vs 16 cores for the 11900K, but they are utilized differently. Real world benchmarks will be interesting. I don't think it will make much difference for gaming, but rendering and other multi-core intensive tasks will be interesting. Also will be interesting to see how hot the 12900K gets (which may in turn impact overclocking ability) - certainly the 11900K runs very hot, so the 7nm lithography on the 12900K may help. DDR5 compatible too - lots of new stuff going on = lots of variables to impact performance. I'm not going to be an early adopter, I can say that much.

    I was not impressed by 11th gen overall.  Very little OC overhead and runs pretty darn hot.  I got more out of 10th gen.  That being said, the memory overclocking on 11th gen was better.  But overall I'm hoping 12th gen is an improvement on 11th.  But as you said, likely little impact on gaming/daily use, but may be more fun to push the clocks.  I'm willing to dive in.

    True, OC on my 11900K is not exactly awe-inspiring - on water and best I can get is 5.3GHz on all cores seemingly stable on Prime95. Any cores clocked higher than that, even if I graduate the clocks down on other cores, still is not stable under full load. 5.3GHz on all cores runs pretty damn hot under Prime95 too. Still playing around with it when I have time.

    5.3 All Core?  You got a "golden" 11th gen right there.  I can barely hit 5.2 on 2 cores on water in it's own loop and I'm pumping some voltage in there.  5.3 on a single core blue screens almost immediately.

    Couldn't wait for the Classy? 
     
    I'm holding out for G.Skill.  I figure by the time the Dark comes out, I should be able to land a 12900K and the memory.  That and my Optimus block for the 3090 KP should helpfully arrive, so I can do a full loop rebuild.  Yea?

    I went with ASUS for a few reasons:
    1) I like their BIOS layouts better as have used them quite a bit over the years. 
    2) and perhaps more importantly, all the ASUS boards have elongated offset mounting holes that allow all current gen blocks and coolers work no adapters needed.

    2) and perhaps more importantly, all the ASUS boards have elongated offset mounting holes that allow all current gen blocks and coolers work no adapters needed. 

    That's helpful. Also EVGA boards aren't expected until the end of the year, and if the Z590 is anything to go by, that delay could venture well into 2022.

    I'm surprised no other board OEMs thought to do this to be honest. The mounting space of the holes isn't even one hole diameter bigger apart for the new LGA 1700 holes. You can see on the ASUS boards they basically just lined the hole punch a little more than half a circle over and put another hole to make people's lives a little easier. All it would require is a small redesign in the PCB trace layouts to make it happen. Obviously it's too late now as they are already manufactured but it would have been nice to see more boards with these considerations.

    Just bought 12900K, upgrading from 9900K. But funny thing I can not find any motherboards at all 🤯.

    Is there any release date for the Dark model? I would love to pair my 3090KP with it.

    Second option:
    Asus Rog Z690 Extreme if it is possible to find 😔

    Third option:
    DDR4 board so I could use my 3800CL14 kits and have some fun 😅


    PS: As others members here I am still waiting for Optimus KP waterblock.

    EVGA Z690 Dark KingPin / Z690 Classified not expected until toward the end of this year. My guess is that it may not be available until early next year.
     
    ASUS are usually the first available - their release date is 4th November on Newegg - multiple models.

    I'll defintely be ditching my 9900K for Alder Lake, not a doubt that this will be the Gen to replace 9th Gen.
    10900K was tempting with 2 additional cores with 11900k being an absolute "why?" ....  ;)
    With eveything Im reading has 12900k showing hugely substantial gains over 5950X its a no brainer if planning to upgrade.
    Although I will wait for Asus Formula, Apex or Extreme and hopefully some 5133 + DDR5....guess it will be a 3 month build ;)

    I9 9900K EK Velocity / Maximus XI-E / 32G Royals 4000 / Evga RTX 3080Ti FTW3 w EK Vector / Samsung NVMe 512G / Samsung 860 Pro 512G / Samsung 860 Pro 256G / WD 4TB Red / AX 1600i /  Corsair 900D & XSPC 480 * 360 * 240 Rads   XSPC Photon 170 Rez-Vario Pump Combo - Alienware 3440*1440p 120Hz/ W10 21H2

    If you decided to go with third option please let me know the result. I'm thinking of doing the same, In fact I already bought the motherboard. Its Asus ROG Strix z690-A D4 and I'm planning to pair it with either one of this:

    My main reason of going this route, is due to the fact that ddr5 loose timing might severely impact my fps. I'm playing on 240hz 1440p monitor and want high and stable fps.
