Hate to wake you up about this feature but it's on win-10 as well so should x99 be banned from win-10 too lol
This feature is really for people that use virtual machines so exploits don't leak into the host os but fact is this protection is off regardless of 10 or 11
Real problem is too many people rely on windows/ microsoft defender and shouldn't or ms lab tests.

On the matter virtual machines, VBS is used to isolate the hypervisor itself from the OS now that a compromised OS is automatically assumed. The security features on fully compatible PCs running Windows 11 go six layers deep and are designed around the premise that some part of the system has been compromised. Here's where Haswell comes in. VBS is now used to isolate areas of memory as a general function of PC security. Haswell has VBS but it hits performance pretty bad, and Microsoft is or *was* pushing for all the security with little or no performance degradation. For this reason Haswell will not and should not be on the Windows 11 CPU compatibility list. As far as I'm concerned, Windows 11 on my PC is no less secure than Windows 10 so I might as well be running it until the next upgrade or until MS gets in the way.
TL/DR: Is your 6850K overclock working in W11?
More detail ...
I upgraded to X299 a while ago and mothballed my RVE with 6850K/6900K. I've since acquired a Sabertooth X99 board to use as an HTPC & VM Host with my 6850K.
I'm only running an nh-d9l air cooler. I do plan to go AIO soon. Overclocking might be an option.
Latest BIOS and I've installed W11. No dodgy download. Fresh install.
issue 1) 1x unknown driver. This is the "intel turbo boost max technology 3.0 driver". I tried the W10 one, but, it fails to start "Code 10".
issue 2) With all cores to x40, I noticed that only the favourite core is hitting x40. Thermal limit is not being hit. This brings back memories of when a W10 update borked the X99 overclock. There was a BIOS update required and/or some software turbo boost file rename stuff.
I think these issues are related. This does lead to my question - If you're running W11 on 6850K, is your overclock working?
