10% from Unidays or Newsletter sign up is better than $75 off

It was $1440 after Unidays/Newsletter when I bought it at the beginning of August. This is $1620, $180 more. I'd say you should wait for a better sale.

If you happen to buy make sure to switch the memory to 16GB, 8Gx2, DDR4, 2933MHz at zero additional cost.

I thought it would be better to have the 16gbx1 option as it would use only one slot. Could you please explain me why this one is better?

This one has 11700K with the "premium luxury" cooler instead of 11700 in the August build.
Factoring in the 15% Rakuten rebate available a few days ago (vs 8% in August), I would say the $180 difference is not that intolerable.

PS: I bought this one a few days ago with 15% cash back.

These things have been on for cheaper for pretty much an entire month, and you chose to post this to RFD when it's $150 more expensive.

These machines have a non LHR 3060ti in them.

I've bought like 15 or them. About to get a cheap one with the dell rewards lol

I completely missed that for the CPU. And I agree, it was hot with the 15% from Rakuten.

Important information about dell motherboards, they don't support overclocking.

So having the K is fairly pointless. You're paying 100 for a better cooler, which is garbage still.

You're better off with the non K version, and buy the vetroo v5 cooler.

Use Intel extreme tuning to change power limits

Can we confirm it's not lhr? I have a lhr 3060ti, I'd get this and swap them and sell the non lhr if that's the case

That is interesting - from building deep learning models perspective, I thought 3060 would be better because of higher RAM. May from mining perspective Ti is better.
