Seriously my Mrs is doing my head in... I mooted the idea of getting a new PC a while back, SWMBO declared that there wasn't enough room anywhere for a desk, OK so a laptop it is then!
She's now declared that my fat arse plus laptop is "too messy" to use the kitchen table, was a good boy and...
I can already hear a groan, noob question.... When benchmarking the CPU should I ever expect to see any of the cores top out at 4.9GHz? Mine seems to be limiting at or around the 4.7-4.8GHz mark (I know tiny margin). Is this within the tolerances given by Intel?
Just pulled the trigger on this build, currently being tested. Will add that I changed my mind on the SSD and swapped them for a pair of 1TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 3500MB/R, 3300MB/W)
Looking forward to getting back into the PC gaming after several years on...
