Interesting story - I've got all the bits ready, but I was planning on doing a clean Win11 install to make full use of the big and little cores (apparently Win 10 just assigns them randomly so you might not get full performance), however, they don't seem to have got WMR working very well yet on Win 11, so if I go that way I'll have to do without VR until they fix it. Second thing is that air cooling solutions are scarce and yet to catch up with the socket 1700, so you need an upgrade kit and guess what, many are sold out. I've managed to get one for my dark rock pro, but as I'm doing a hybrid build with many of the bits in my current rig it's in use. I was planning to just get a cheap air cooler to get the barebones of the new PC up and running, then do the big swap into my existing case, but that looks like a no go. So I'm faced with currently having the 7700K as a fully working very useable machine, but making the leap to a faster one without VR. It's the price of adopting on day one, but then I took a gamble that there might be possible supply issues with the 12th gen like there has been with graphics cards/PS5s etc. I got my RTX 3080 on day 1 and paid rrp for it, so sometimes it's worth jumping on new stuff, sometimes not. I think I'll have some time over christmas to jump to the new build - so fingers crossed. MS are bound to fix WMR soon, so I might need to have a VR holiday for a bit.
