I like Windows 8 because it snapshots your DRAM when power down.
This is nice as it doesn't load a bunch of services you don't use or need if you disable them before you shut down.
I turn off Acronis, LAN, Avira, Defender, and other non essential services since my rig is rarely online.

Windows 7 was nice, 8.1 manageable and 10 just a stalking/cloud OS that's main goal is "to give consumers the ultimate experience"....
They can blow my ultimate..
The only bad thing about having 8.1 was agreeing to use 10 for free, but then nag your ass until you cave in and allow them control over your PC.

7 and 8 are fine, even if you don't cut off the fat.

4790K is socket LGA 1150 Z97 etc....
5820K is socket LGA 2011 v3 X99

There isn't a big difference between the two - 5820K is 6 cores where 4790K is 4 cores - Both CPU's overclock really well if you want to do this - Some people do, some don't! - I haven't yet but I might in the future! - 5820K does not come with a CPU cooler and fan so you'll need to get your own. 4790K does come with a cooler but many people upgrade to a better one even if they're not overclocking.

Both CPU's are fabulous but they are obselete now - 1151 replaced 1150 with the 6700k which is very good and 6800k replaced 5820k Haswell-E for LGA 2011 v3 for the new Broadwell CPU's.

If you want a 4790k you'll need to be quick as they're not produced, ditto for 5820k - 4790k is cheaper than 5820K but not cheap!!!

1150 works best on Scope from what I've understood whether this is the PCI cards or PCI-e Xite-1. Someone on another thread claims that 1151 Z170 motherboard is working fine with PCI cards

Someone else here had big problems with Xite on X99 whilst I've read someone else got his UAD and Xite-1 working with X99 on an Asrock X99 WS board but I can't confirm validity of this claim.

I've not tried Xite-1 with X99 ----- YET - I will try in the future on one of my X99 boards
Thank you Fraz.

5820k normally cycles at about 3Ghz. If you OC it it will go to about 4.4 Ghz. Huge increase.
4790k normally cycles at about 4Ghz, and boosts up to 4.4Ghz. If you OC it you will get 4.5Ghz. Not that much.

If without OC you get similar performace, then it seems 5820k is much faster.

Anyway if it doesn't work with Xite-1; I am not interested.

95 okay, 98 bad, 98se good, windows millenium bad, winxp good, vista bad, win7 good, win8 bad, win10 dunno...starting to see a pattern here :lol:
I am desperate to try win11 and prove your theory is wrong :)

Wish me luck :lol:

Hi Paprika,

Do you own an Xite? - Planning to buy one?

Hi Fraz, I have no Xite.
I am planning to get into Scope; either through PCI or Xite.

PCI cards are very old now and may have been used lots and lots so from that point of view and Xite would be best. Cost is an issue with Xite as they are expensive [I'm not saying they are not worth it] repeat repeat repeat :wink:

Learning curve is quite big but there is a good community to help glue your brains back together :lol:

Yes, that is the reason why I am leaning more towards the Xite-1.
The only drawback is that Xite-1 is more expensive, and I will have to wait longer to get into Scope :(

Hello Paprika,

Or there may be a 3 DSP / 6 DSP board that is on the cheap - Then you could learn Scope sooner !

Thank you fraz.

I don't know atm what I'll end up getting; anyway I'll keep that in mind.
