Agreed, the Aorus Master really has some sweet features. If the classified is a bust, might go with that, I did Amazon so Bezos can eat the return cost if needed. He can afford it.

You really can't go wrong with either board honestly both are pretty awesome the Master has more features but the EVGA has better CS.... Not a ton of consumer feedback on the EVGA board likely due to its original price but the little I can find seems solid.

Had I jumped into the Alderlake party I likely would have grabbed a Hero and boy that likely would have been bad thankfully Asus came to their senses and did a recall on it.

I have a B660-I if you're interested. Used it once, no bclk for my 12400F so I used it 2 weeks and now it's boxed up. Have installed a Beta bios, which didn't seem to have any issues. Built in wifi and BT and has 2 M2 slots. Dual Dr5 slot board so it handles memory pretty well. The only other option here is a Z series chipset if you like high memory speeds. Most Matx boards aren't great for Dr5 mem clocking.

My Corsair Dominator Platinum's 6000 are SK Hynix
Oficially they came with 36-38-38-76 @ 1.25V
Have them at 36-36-36-76 1.35V

I'm sure they can clock better, but haven't tried yet.

But this is what you get then with an i7 12700K:

View attachment 261775

Yep at stock that looks right. The Hynix is M-Die, basically best of the "first" gen DDR5.

However, most people are able to get these up to 6600, lots of people with timings and instructions on this thread. < link

From what I gather on that thread, 6800 seems to be where it becomes very hit or miss with M-Die, having to loosen timings up so much it becomes pointless.

Hynix A-Die are out now though. Upping the bar a bit (from that thread) - almost all of the people in that thread who ran out and got some of this new Hynix DDR5 are pushing 7000+. Like this guy, running 7000 C30 and higher.

Yeah, I went with the Z690 classified, heard a lot of good things about it, hopefully works great!
They don't sell Z690 EVGA boards here.

But GL with it!

I'd really like to hear what you think of it as you get it setup. At $299 it seems like a steal for a 10 layer PCB motherboard with a massive power delivery setup and top shelf components, I just can't find more than a few reviews of it and very few comments on forums. Saw nothing negative at all, just very little on it.

Agreed, hopefully EVGA is a going concern. I have to wait for the 12900KS, might be a week.

First full review \ leak is out for what appears to be 13900K retail.

This thing is a monster. 8 more e-cores doesn't explain this, it's near 50% average more performance in MT vs 12900K.

13900K vs 12900K :

1663461372356.png


CB single thread :

1663461635674.png


Massive difference in fps when you look at 13th vs 12th gen DDR5vsDDR5, +13.4% to be exact :

1663461468911.png



AL was almost impossible to get below 60ns on DDR5-6000 with AL, most will need an 8+ layer MB and 6400+ memory to do this :

1663461310668.png








But then there's this:

Yeah, that was what I figured would occur. The prices are too damn high! I am guessing that the 13700K will be near identical to the 12900K but with latency improvements, better ram overclocks, and probably higher clocks relative to lower wattages, so incrementally better in a usual Intel Tick/Tock way. The 13900K is just too expensive for my budget.

I am running it on my desk right now. It seems okay. Some QoL things I am accustomed to on AsRock aren't really present, I liked AsRock's common sense bios layout, and the z690 network adapter didn't work out of the box, I had to move a driver over on a thumb drive in order to have a working NIC, which made the Win 10 install less straight forward.

I did the bios update to latest, the original bios had a very slow boot.

The included thumb drive with drivers on it didn't work.

I ran CPU-Z CPU bench and Aida Cache and Memory. Here are the basic benchmarks out of the box, only setting was enabling XMP.

I will need to install R23, I will get back to you on that. The CPU-Z benchmark will push it to 95C pretty instaneously, but it will drop to 30C idle once the load is lifted. The Cache and Memory benchmark generated a lot of coil whine.

From the motherboard? Been lucky to never get a motherboard or PSU with coil whine would drive me crazy probably would replace it instantly lol.

It would have to be, there are no other devices plugged in, it is sitting in a pile bare on my desk with connections being one ssd, two ram sticks, the heatsink, my mouse and keyboard, and the power supply.

100C, gets there and stays there. When I shut off R23, the temp immediately drops to 30C so the NHD15S has good contact, just a demanding processor. I'll have to set aside some time and undervolt it.

Sounds about right for that chip even a 360mm aio would struggle with fans maxed out I'm sure.... I'm sure you'll be able to get a good balance of temps/performance on that chip with some voltage tinkerin.

That's actually a really good latency score on AIDA for 6000 C36.

I saw a couple of people had posted the same about the NIC in EVGA forums. Seems like a common nuisance issue.

I saw a couple of people had posted the same about the NIC in EVGA forums. Seems like a common nuisance issue.
Nice, it is purely out of box. I haven't had time to tweak it. It appears stable, but I didn't really put it through the ringer. I also migrated to windows 10 21H2 LTSC from 1809, I haven't tested to see if e-core performance is correct. Are there any methods for evaluating e-core scheduling? If it doesn't schedule correct I guess I'd go to 11.

I doubt it is scheduling correctly since it is win 10. I've been on 11 since shortly after it came out, haven't had any issues other than a slightly laggier 'start' menu and initially it bogged down SSD access a bit, but that was patched long ago.

Gotta say the performance gain from 8600K is remarkable. Able to play games while doing other applications, it just doesn't bog down one bit.

Mind running a GB 5 benchmark? I'm curious how that setup does at stock settings with air cooler.

Sure I can do that. Right now I am messing about with undervolting/underclocking 1.2Vcore/5Ghz, which runs quite cool. (<80C)
undervolted, underclocked:

Undervolt/5Ghz Limit
2048
Single-Core Score

20291
Multi-Core Score

Stock
2132
Single-Core Score

20616
Multi-Core Score


Undervolting to ~1.2Vcore (reported 1.168Vcore) and underclocking (by 200mhz) drops the reported package power from 350 watts to 180 watts!

Here is the R23 at 1.2V, 5GHz
27917 Multi, 1929 Single, Vcore 1.195V, Package Watts 227W
