    I'm considering a 13900KS next as it looks like very few 13900K's are OCing all that well.

    Get a top end DDR4 setup then then keep it for some time like I did back when I had my X58.

    I would be very interested in your OC results if you do. Please post them here on the forum. I have a 12900KS (DDR4) under single stage phase I keep at 5.6 MHz with a 54 MHz ring frequency.

    Your points are valid. In addition, there is less overclocking potential with the improvement in the predictability/binning of modern hardware. With that and 'easy overclocking' buttons you can press, the average Joe can get a descent OC without having the effort of seek the know how.
    "Build it and they shall come". There's still use for forums like this. Look at overclock(DOT)net. There's still a desire for centralized sources for the harder core users who want to squeeze out the entire potential of their modern, highly binned hardware. There are motherboard threads for builds with various manufacturers and models, DDR4/DDR5 overclocking threads etc. They're doing everything xtremesystems used to do. It's hopping with a lot of activity and has become a go to for the harder core enthusiasts. This is where they've been going. If we were to post our builds and activities here (especially with unique posts found only here), there would be search hits, comments, and new registered members.
