    I’ll be very happy if I do. Really looking forward to the build.

    I was just going to put my existing M2 drive in the new machine and boot up but now thinking a full fresh OS install is the way to go.

    Fresh install is always best with a new build.

    I haven’t seen them actually, I’m more interested in the 11400 as that is what I’ve ordered.

    Yeah, the lower end CPU's seem to be the obvious choice if you are looking at 11th Gen, they make sense if you want to use an integrated GPU as well. Doubt we'll see any reviews of such chips today, unless someone see the opportunity to fill the gap that would be overlooked by many of the media outlets, after all we know what the 11700K/900K can do already.

    I thought I would get a email saying it shipped, but nothing yet?

    I ordered on the 24th, still waiting on my shipping email. Perhaps stock for the i5-11400 is different.

    I wonder if OCUK are doing the Intel game promo that some of the competitors are.

    Another question for you peeps doing a fresh install. Do you just install Windows with its updates plus motherboard chipset drivers and that’s it or are there any further steps you take before installing everything else?

    That's all I do. I would say, though, check your motherboard for bios updates. It may have had an 11th gen optimisation update.

    Ah yes, I hadn’t thought of bios updates.

    I install windows 10 on usb with the latest updates with MediaCreationTool then go to your motherboards support page for latest bios and drivers. Only install the drivers you need and get the newest non-beta bios.
