    I am seriously thinking about upgrading to the i9-11900K next month. Want to see some reviews before I make a final decision.
    The problem with the reviews is that they always have to find stuff to be critical of. It may be 100% true that a CPU doesn't meet some of the high expectations that were wished for and there is always that "next big thing" right around the corner.

    My thinking is to do the upgrade now while I can, and if I feel compelled to do so I can get another MB and CPU next round. At least all my other components will still work with it.

    Buying the last of the 14 nano I couldn't go wrong. Besides, I wanted more USB outputs, WiFi and BT. Got what I wanted with Strix z590 A- Wifi 6. By the time all the new changes get settled in, It will be time to upgrade again.

    My laptop has 10 nano, 21 USB outputs, WiFi 6 and BT. But no Strix card obviously.

    I was wondering the same thing. Obviously knew it was going to be a USB hub, but never saw that included as a spec before.

    When you split up a USB port into so many seperate ports with a hub the problem becomes that you are splitting up the available bandwidth as well. Not a problem if you have a number of fairly slow devices, but for high speed devices you want to be judicious in how many you are connecting to a single root hub.

    As current user of Intel Comet Lake S 10700, and B460M-DS3H motherboard, not sure if would be worth upgrading to Rocket Lake S myself, really all i need to still get done for my Comet Lake S Processor, is upgrade the CPU Cooler from Stock Intel one to some after market model for better cooling, and really should last me years if i maintain it with dust clean outs and such.

    That is on my next purchase item for this system, then hopefully can get the upgraded cooler in, and all set i think after that

    Your CPU is one of the 65W parts. Jumping only one gen to the 11th gen might only really be worth it if you jump to one of the 125W parts.

    If you did want to upgrade, there's a really good chance that your existing MB would support the 11th gen. You could actually recover a good chunk of the expenditure by selling your 10th gen CPU. If I'm not mistaken, those get pretty decent prices still.

    Just be aware that if you jump to the 125W TDP CPUs (i7-11700k, i9-11900k, etc.), the early reports at that those are extremely power hungry peaking at over 290W momentarily.

    I've done liquid cooling a couple of times but on my new build I decided to go air cooled this time around with the behemoth Noctua NH-D15 chromax.black cooler. I've always been impressed at the combination of fantastic performance and quiet operation of Noctua coolers.

    I reckon that is a Gigabyte board.

    Any issues with it or with the B series chipset generally? I guess it is B or Z chipsets only, but the H series has disappeared?

    What temps are you getting with the stock cooler?

    I will likely get an Alder Lake non-K CPU, but have never used anything but Z and H boards.

    Wondering if Noctua can come up with an adapter for the upcoming socket 1700 or if I'll have to buy a new cooler.
