Any suggestions?
Ram is a tricky little bugger. I have a 990 fx x4 and had trident ram in the sucker and proud to say my wife is running that board with the 8320 now. I had a lot of issues with trying to over clock the ram. Turned out that not all 2400mhz ram will operate well at higher mhz. I also learned that even if you can get it stable that running some benchmarks didn't always mean that it was as tight as it should have been. Often times might would have to reset the bios just to boot up at times which was aggravating to me. I got a set of 16g 1600hmz ram which was 8 more gig then my trident and that thing rocks and allows for a baseclock and multi overclock. I got the z77 x4 and gave the old one to my wife and she can't even begin to fathom using the whole potential of the system.

TLDR

Is there a 90 degree angle connector for the Front USB 3.0 Panel connector?

How the hell are you supposed to fit a gpu with that thing sticking up?

Bah, Blew out a pci-e slot mining. Lasted about a month 24/7.

So I remember a while back there was a bit of hoohah about Asrock removing support for CPUs from these Mobos, has anyone got experience of running the bigger AM3+ CPUs on the 990FX Extreme3? I'm looking to upgrade from my 6300 to an 8 series, but I see that the best 8 series cpu, the 8350 is not supported by the Mobo for some reason? Anyone know if there are modded BIOS files I could use to get an 8350 to work?

Hello,

I recently purchased a Samsung 840 Evo to go with my 990FX Extreme9. However, I don't believe she is running as fast as she can be. I've spent the past two days researching why and I believe i have the correct AHCI enabled in the bios. I even checked the registry and that appears to be sat.

Are my bench marks normal or is there an issue? idk thanks

I have it working at 4Ghz currently, any higher it starts to throttle a lot, probably because of VRM , I'm looking into it to try to improve it -in fact I opened another thread about it before I discovered this one-.

I haven't tried it yet but I have made some riser cables and I am adding a 12v line to them and I think that will work with the slot. My slot still functions but the card will not hash over 35k. I believe it cannot get the voltage through the mobo it needs. I'll try to remember to post results when I get to it.

Hello guys, I currently own a asrock 990fx extreme9 with an fx8350. For a long time I've been looking for a guide about overclocking on this board. Can anybody help me with this?
post #800 of 899
well its like any regular overclocking honestly especially if you have a decent heatsink - also you can just do the OC capabilities with the board its really good for a board function
