post #1071 of 2941
Hiya fellow AsRock owners, I had a couple questions i thought you may be able to help me with.Any Help would be highly appreciated of course.

Question #1 : I was wondering about the RF receiver port .
Where do we actually buy the RF receiver?
and what can we actually use it for?

My problem why i asked question #1: I have an Antec VERIS Multimedia Station Premier Infrared receiver i will show a photo.The problem i have is the Computer sits sideways in my living room so it cant see the signal unless im facing the Pc with the Nzxt Phantom's front door open.I want to be able to use the Antec Station from my couch so i want the RF receiver part mounted on the side of my case somehow. I will mod it into the build so its not that noticeable.I really Love the Antec Station for my movie and Blu ray collection and also for the many other great things it does.I am not sure if i can use the RF receiver port on the motherboard for this or if i have to get a special one from Antec?

Question #2 : I my last build i had the same Motherboard but the P67 version and it came with the Full version of THX True Studio.but for some reason the one i have now keeps telling me to pay for it? Does this sound right or do i need to get the software from somewhere else,use the P67 software,or enter a product key in somewhere.It seems strange they would charge for it on the Z68 but not on the P67.Kinda makes me think i am doing something wrong.
It actually brings me to this website when i open it:
http://buy.soundblaster.com/_creativelabsstore/cgi-bin/pd.cgi?frompage=category&page=product_info_bare&pid=F2222QG6QCX7WBG4PVC&save_vnd_PRF1=1&PRF1=00018490000000

Thanks Guys for any help you can offer with this.If you need anymore info just ask.The info of this build is in my Sig .its the Venom Build.

Everything seems to work fine... but every once in awhile it will come on and lose all power and then come on again but not boot up. So I can manually hold the power button, turn it off and turn in on again and it will come on as usual.
This only happens when I am above 4.5Ghz. If I turn off the C states 3/6 and package state... the system won't boot. From saving the settings the system will do the false start and then not boot up and I have to reset the BIOS to start. Also I am using a fixed voltage.
Please give me some advice! redface.gif

That was me? ... What are you doing when it loses all power and tries to reboot? how long? Do another CMOS reset (clean reset) and try the auto bios "Turbo" settings @ 4.4 and 4.6ghz and check for stability (quick checks 1344 & 1792 FFT's) if that feels good, you'll know as you get more familiar w/your machine ... then go through your other stability tests ....

ALSO if your ram is not running @ 1.605v (you've got higher-end ram w/tighter than typical 1600 timings) .... is this your ram? no XMP settings?

Try manually setting that in the bios and see if that helps?, but in reallity HyperPI and P95 should expose this before a full on crash as you raise your clocks ... back to the playoffs smile.gif ...

Apologies to the OP as this probably/maybe? belongs in this thread? ...http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet

Do you plan to watercool those 7970s? Also would you have gotten 5ghz with 1600mhz RAM?

Looks awesome, plan to get a fatal1ty board in next few weeks for new build.biggrin.gif

Yes sir it was you!

I am able to do Prime 95 8+ hours... I also did 1344s and 1792s an hour each. BUT then I try out a game and it'll crash 1 out of 10 times.

Also I AM NOT running my ram @ 1.605... do you think I should? That is in fact the exact ram that I am using. I have the xmp settings show up and have them set manually in the settings. Plus set the voitage for the ram manually also.

Thanks for helping!

Hmmm... certain games can put unusual strain on a system in unusual ways? ... All the way back to the BF2 days, many of us could have what we thought was a 24/7 stable overclock and BF2 would crash it :O ... then along came Oblivion ... then Crysis, which to this day I still include as part of my stability testing suite ...
1 in 10 is not so bad!?, especially if you can play 2-4+ hrs with no crash ...

Try bumping your vCore a bit as long as temps are good ... try the Auto bios Turbo settings, don't let peeps dog you that the only good clock has to be manually set in the bios ... ASR is pretty efficient with their "auto tweaks" ...
As far as the ram goes, try the bumped volts 1.55v-1.605v which with my ram is the recommended volts in the XMP setting. One set I have are the CL7's (7-8-7-24 1T 1.6v) almost the same ram you have, when I tried lowering the volts to 1.5v my machine would crash frown.gif

The game I was trying was actually dirt 2... and it would crash at loading the save and exit. I tried what you suggested... raised the ram voltage to 1.605 and had my PLL at v1.709 and it still crashed at the exit. Then I read somewhere that you want to generally have the VDIMM and PLL only around .50v of each other for sandybridge and I lowered my PLL to 1.668. And no more false start up and haven't had the game lock up either.

I'm sure it had to do with the DRAM V... because I tried the PLL at 1.668 before and it didn't work. So yea... thanks! thumb.gif

Now with the extra 300 mhz I'm getting a minimum of 57fps (riften market) and an average of 89fps in skyrim! Everything maxed out plus a ton of texture mods. Woohoo!!! biggrin.gif

You're saying they recommend using the SATA3 ports for SATA2 hard drives, where does it say this?

I have Ripjaws X, I ordered an Ext3 Gen3. I read some clearance issues with this RAM and some coolers. I would like to get a CM Hyper 212 EVO.
Can I put my RAM on the DDR2_A2 and B2 instead of the A1 B1?

Hi everyone, I am considering the z68 fatal1ty w\2500k or 2600k. I was wondering how well the board will OC, Will I need to do a flash prior to first POST with new chip, I am coming from a p55 Chipset on an asus board... will this board be just as reliable? I plan on folding 24\7 with new rig, light gaming occasionaly, web surfing, and school work when I go back in the fall... I need something that will be solid from day 1 with little to no worry of down time. Will this be the board for me? I chose the fatal1ty z68 for the IVY ready feature, as well as the nifty bay device that doubles as a ssd mount.

thanks
