What operating system for 12400f?

As the title implies I would like to know whether I should install windows 10 or windows 11 on my pc that has an i5 12400f. I know that for 12th gen win.11 is preferred because it can utilize the e-cores and p-cores better than win.10. What concerns me though is that the 12400f has just 6 cores. Should I install win 11 anyways or just stick to 10?

With no e-cores the fancy new task scheduler in windows 11 won't make a difference. although the difference is pretty small regardless, and where it really matters for most users, gaming performance, it doesn't make a difference at all.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

From what I've heard about Win11 and observed through others' posts seeking help with issues with it here, I wouldn't use that dumpster fire on a calculator. It's pretty well known by now that Microsloth hasn't gotten anything right the first, second, third, or fourteen-thousandth time since the days of XP.

 

I've already disabled Win10 updates because of Microsoft pestering me about my 'free upgrade' to Win11 waiting. Don't want it, don't want to know about it. I just got my machine running as it should after four months of chasing my tail over a QVL issue. I'm not about to let Microsloth screw it up again.

Sadly windows have a lot of problems... I still remember when it wanted me to upgrade to win 11 when my pc didn't "meet" the minimum requirements. I'll stick to win 10. 

 

P.s I thought of using linux but I find it a bit more tricky
