The 6850K only has 6 cores and 12 threads unfortunately.
I moved mine to Plex/file server/DC duty a while ago. Upgraded the cpu to a multicore xeon and it sits quietly doing lots of nothing or lots of something depending on what I'm doing. I bought it years ago as I knew i'd eventually put a xeon in it and let it serve. Too bad intel gimped their stuff.I am debating if I should sale or use my 6850K, and Rampoage V Edition 10 for a server.
I remember using an old ISO for Windows 10 installs and man, it'd take a day to get all the updates done.One of the reasons why I really don't overclock much, and the times I have it was never an extreme overclock (like taking my old Core 2 Quad Q9550 from 2.83 to 3.4 was the most extreme I've ever done in terms of raw MHz) or was it kept for long. With my luck, I would never hit the silicon lottery anyways.
And fun times indeed. The worst part of a fresh OS install is waiting for Windows Update to get around to doing it's thing in full.
