Asrock z68 extreme3 does not overclock AT ALL - Page 8

post #71 of 117
Sorry you couldn't solve your Asrock issues. I do wish they would update their BIOS more frequently though.

I have yet to dabble with overclocking my CPU so we'll see how it goes.

Good luck mate

Always wise to do that dabbling within the first 30 days in case you need an RMA, if overclocking is something you plan to do..

fortunately i bought from a very nice and customerfriendly shop who provides a month of free return time instead of just 2 or 3 weeks as usual in germany. im very happy with my new Asus though the blue theme kinda destroys the red/black/golden look i was aiming for. well, guess you cant have everything. in the end i did find a "solution" for the problem, so people who decide to wait for a uefi update can do that instead if they are having this problem.

No offense but your comparing a board that's been out for 1 years to a board that's been out 3 weeks, off course BIOS issues are going to be worked out for the ASUS.

+ I'm not sure why you were expecting a stable 5ghz on a $130 board confused.gif Kind of seems dumb to me

While some of your points have merit, there are $130 boards built plenty solid. The Asrock would probably be one of them, if it wasn't buggy.

If Asrock support were able to acknowledge BIOS issues and provide even a very approximate timeline for a fix on some of their Gen3 boards, I'm sure at least some people would be happy with that. When I started my trouble ticket with Asrock, I got a blanket "Board's probably defective. Return it". No questions asked about my issues, or anything at all. I felt like an annoyance, rather than a customer, and I got that response from two techs, or I might have chalked it off to one person who needed a job change.

While expecting 5GHz is probably a bit much, a quick search on NewEgg turned up three Z68-chipset mainboards within a dollar or two of the Asrock that I'd lay money on overclocking reasonably, provided you didn't cheap out on the RAM or power supply.

Yeah ASrock lacks good customer service and their BIOS fixes lag behind at this stage, but along with tweak town forums where they have their own sub forum there is a Singapore tech forum where their reps like to hang out because it's full of distributors and online retailers so you get answers quick and fast. I forget the name of it, I have it bookmarked if I ever run into problems.

$130 is budget building really, I wouldn't expect most people buying boards in that price range to overclock them or expect them to get 5ghz stable.

But isn't the ex3 the same as the ex4 board, minus some sata, USB and pci differences? My point is that even though it's a budget board, it still has strong offerings for people who don't need the bells and whistles of a more expensive board while performing abou the same. Again I am only comparing the ex3 vs ex4

Yes they are pretty much the same. The EX3 has 8+4 power phases, great layout and XFIRE/SLI. It's a very capable board minus the bios flaw.

From my testing, P1.00 UEFI has some Vcore issues. Hopefully, I can pester Asrock to fix it properly soon.
