It's uncapped.
Yeah I had a situation where it limited me to 2933, even in a Z490, but it may have been XMP failing perhaps? It was G Skill 3600, and it would let me set 3600, but as soon as I got to Windows and checked, 2933. Check bios again, 2933. Whether manual or XMP. It was just a temp 10400 CPU I pulled from an office PC while we waited for his 10700k to arrive. And after that, non-issue with 3600 at rated speeds.

For some reason I thought it was locked CPU on Z mobos ram limited these days.

Lol to be honest, I have been so aggravated with Intel's policies lately I probably just assumed it was their fault immediately 🤣
Could be worse. Could have worked at Intel. I rarely tracked price of hardware and wasn't aware of the creep it experience year over year. AMD is more affordable, but my golly the mobo prices. The ones I've been eyeing are an eye watering $300 and higher.

I ran 3466Mhz+ on i7 8700 from day one. I would have expected this to end up in the news cycle if Z490 dropped memory overclocking for locked CPUs. It would be a futile gesture too, especially in the current status quo.

B die? What AIB/vendor?

It was a G.Skill 3200 CL16 kit, not B die, maybe Hynix. IIRC it was stable at 3466Mhz CL16 with voltage bumped to 1.4V (and not one speed step higher even with 1.45V). The kit I'm running now with the same CPU is B die, 4000Mhz CL17 at ~1.4V.
I've used Corsair on nearly every build in the last decade because it's been headache free. I've been looking at G.Skill products for a while. Real solid performance without the Corsair tax. I found a set of G.Skill 3600 CL16 for roughly $150 via Amazon the other day, now $170. 32 GB which wasn't a bad deal. There's a 32 GB Crucial/Micron set I'm not totally sure of. It's $130 @ 3200 (BL2K16G32C16U4B). Any good?

Hopefully those rumors of lower priced RAM and NAND come true as I'd love to pick up a 64 GB kit and not pay nearly $250 for it.
