    Don't mean to be cruel but re install the O.S. with all applicable patches and ramp up system memory to maximum supported switching off swapfile and then on in separate test rounds. XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.

    Maybe I didn't get it, but why don't you use 2 (or more) normal servers instead of one monster-server?

    I wonder if you would got better time if you would let the system run in Quad channel memory mode. I had some issues with Quad Channel memory and xmp on x99 5820k but giving the ram more voltage made the issue go away. While minus the 2 hours if fiddle with voltage to the ram phase control

    Come on Linus, $59.99 for your stealth hoodie? I like it but not that much. Maybe for $39 I'd budge

    Sorry, but it's dumb useless videos like this that make me watch your channel. I love your thought processes and analysis. Especially when you clearly go home, obsess over the problem (at home) and then come back and deep dive again.  👏🏼

    I'd much rather have a 6950x than a 9900k? Quad channel memory, 40 pcie lanes, and 25mb L3 cache vs. 16mb cache? The 6950x is the better option.
