Yeah, I've never seen a platform age as well as this one has. It turns out that my 5960X really likes the DDR4 thats available today. I was going to use it for something else, but I ended up installing an 8x8GB 3733C17 rated kit, and it worked straight-away at 3200MT/S, 14-14-14-28 timings at 1.35V and stock 0.81V system agent and stock 1.05V vccio. Tightened up all the secondary timings too and passed 20,000% in Karhu. Nice surprise, since my old Crucial Ballistix would not do above 2666 at any voltag
I too have a 5960x in my secondary machine that I use for video rendering. It's a shame that it won't run Microsoft won't allow that CPU to run Windows 11 even though it it fully capable of running that OS.
