    Those folks in the Top 10 on like Port Royal ....including the one in 1st Place with their RTX 3090's are running a
    Intel Core i9-10900KF Processor

    Yeah, let's see what the 4000/5000 series Ryzen CPUs brings to the table. Expectations are high, but it might be a big disappointment too...only future will tell....

    For OC, AMD bad, Intel GOOD. But for everything else I lean towards AMD atm. I've always loved Intel, until AMD started to getting somewhere. As a matter of fact, I'm still very impressed and excited about the i7-2600k and 2700k CPUs.
    Sad thing is, actually two AMD CPUs hold the world record for clock rate, but older ones:

    As of 2014, the Guinness World Record for the highest CPU clock rate is an overclocked, 8.723 GHz AMD Piledriver-based FX-8370 chip. It surpassed the previous record achieved in 2011, an 8.429 GHz AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer-based chip.

    In the end, only thing I care about is price, total performance and efficiency. If all align, then that's my goto CPU.

    All these superstitious numbers like GHz and FPS means nothing to me. Especially the FPS part where one would compare 350 vs 380fps. In real life I couldn't tell the difference between the 2, no matter how hard I'd try.

    Time taken to perform a task however, is very relevant to me.

    Today I gave Armory Crate a second chance, after I tried it out last year.
    I made a system image of my system using Aura Sync 1.06.17(best version for Windows 2004), then uninstalled Aura, used the cleanup tool, then installed Crate.
    At first Crate wasn't seeing my Trident Z's(among other problems last year), but found a post in ROG Forums(after a search) saying to do a power reset(shut down, turn PSU off, and push your reset or power button until all power is drained from system), and then startup.
    It work like a charm, Crate sees my RAM now

    I looks like it uses less resources than Aura does so far, but I'll keep an eye on it.

    I find Armory Crate cant install any of the drivers, but it can tell you when there updates.

    One thing I will not ever trust or use is OEM driver search and install software.
    They are usually behind the Drivers & Tools page bay at least two versions, and for drivers, 5 versions behind

    Indeed, I don't recommend them either.
