These latest Intel CPU’s seem to have issues indeed, but especially in combination with certain MoBo’s.
If I were in the market for a new PC system, I’d investigate in ASUS MoBo’s. This brand has a good reputation.
I used to be a ‘Gigabyte’ customer, but not anymore …
I think one should not be afraid to buy the latest generation Intel CPU. For me a PC has to be ‘future proof’. And buying the highest possible spec’d system can buy give you that advantage.
Those 11th gen Intel CPU’s require a Socket 1200. So good luck with that … Unless you have budget considerations, but I always buy the latest iteration of the available technology.
Suggestion is an Intel 13900 series on an ASUS 790 chipset MoBo.
Don’t underestimate the benefits of a good graphics card (suggestion could be RTX A4000 series)
Have fun configuring and discovering!

Any Post prior to November is probably inaccurate experience because a) major update to Thread Director in Windows 11, b) BIOS updates to motherboards → both of which have major positive impact on the issues impacting DAWS
Motherboard (BIOS) and RAM make a big difference. I have a ASUS ROG Strix z790-e gaming and it worked on day one with Cubase. Another user (you will find their thread in that search above) had a Gigabyte motherboard and it required a few very recent BIOS updates to resolve their issue (all the BIOS updates indicate memory related changes).
You will need to:
Use Steinberg or Windows Maximum PErformance power scheme
If using a NVIDIA graphics card set it to Maximum Performance
Both of those settings can be set to automatically turn on/off when Cubase runs.
Core parking doesn’t seem to be necessary - but reported experience varies.
