If it's the same layout as my Extreme 7,then it should be under Advanced then CPU configuration then it should say hyperthreading on or off.Your 2500K doesn't have hyperthreading though.Did you just want to know if the setting was there?

Did some testing on L1.15 Beta BIOS for Z68 E4G3, downloaded from ASRock official site. So fare so good, only some minor issues - my mouse works when "support for USB mouse wheel" is set to "Disable". Also on "Auto" this setting seems to prolong extensively initial boot procedure. L1.15 Beta has RAID ROM 10.8.0.1303.

Shouldn't the Fatal1ty Pro z68 Board still be at the top on the front page or is it set by release date?Only wondering this because the way it looks on the front page it seems the Extreme 7 board is there highest end board for z68 but looking at the specs it seems The Fatal1ty Pro still is.

Hey guys im not sure if i am having a problem or if AsRock just got cheap on us but when i had my Fatal1ty Pro P67 board it came with THX True Studio and a key to activate it to Pro.But since i upgraded to the Fatal1ty z68 i install THX True Studio but its only like a trial version.I cant use the great features of it and it says pay to upgrade.Am i missing the key somewhere to activate it or is mine bugged?I even tried installing it from my p67 disk but it says no supported hardware.I cant see why they would charge more for the new model and then Charge extra for THX Studio.Also when i look up the motherboard it says it comes with THX True Studio Pro. Please can someone tell me if i lost the key on some piece of paper that came with it or we not getting it free anymore with the Z68.
Thanks guys this is driving me nuts for days now trying to find the key uninstalling it reinstalling it.It don't make sense to me.

I know its kinda BS i loved that software! i just looked at the AsRock forums and it seems it was free with the P67 Fatal1ty but now they want $24.99 just to use the software for the product i just bought .How is this right at all? We pay top dollar for a board for its features and hardware and then they want to charge us for the software to use it.Not to mention after releasing a better model of the same board for more money and the software was free if i stayed with the older model. The Best feature and reason i want the THX Studio is because if its late at night you can turn on a feature that keeps the sound at the same level so if a loud song comes on in a movie it balances the sound out so it don't get really loud.Now this is one of those examples of why there is Piracy.We paid for the Product and cant use the features of it.Bologna if you ask me.I have been trying for days to get this working i want it back on my PC. I have a key for the software also from my p68 Fatal1ty Pro but even that wont work.Really crazy and i am hoping this is just a mistake i am making because i would think we wouldnt have to pay for the software to use our hardware.I would rather just put that money towards a nicer sound card.Lol my luck there will still be a charge for that software also.

Also guys have you checked out my new Venom Build? Please take a look : http://www.overclock.net/t/1185625/build-log-venom-2nd-phantom-build-i7-2700k-keep-watching-should-get-good

yeh i know what you're saying man! that feature sounds really cool cos it always bugs me when films go super loud and then quiet. im always turning the volume up and down late at night so i dont wake people up!

on a side note, i have just got my computer to boot with a 4.2ghz overclock and have been running prime95 for about 5 minutes so far. i set the voltage manually to 1.4 and disabled c3 and c6 as well as what was mentioned to try previously. so it seems i am somewhat stable at 4.2ghz though i would obviously have to test further to see. ive noticed that with prime95 my cpu will stay at the max turbo speed, but with intel burn test it'll keep dropping down to 3.3ghz. i think i am suffering from bad voltage drops under load and this is what's causing my problems.

can anyone offer some advice on what offset voltage settings combined with load line calibration i should try on my board? i want to eventually run my overclock (wherever i get to) with offset voltage instead of a fixed voltage. should i set offset voltage to + or -? also does load line calibration level 1 hold the voltage up better than level 5? thanks smile.gif


edit: couldn't boot a 4.3ghz overclock with 1.45v on manual voltage mode with LLC on level 2. dont want to be running that sort of voltage but just did it to test. the only thing left i can think of is the power limit for the cpu. i had all of them set to 250W. how high do you guys think its safe to go with that?

edit: ok just did 10 runs with the intel burn test on very high setting with 4.1ghz overclock and it passed so it must be pretty stable there. i did notice something on HWmonitor though which im not sure looks right. underneath the temps for the cpu it has "Powers", here are the maximums for each - Package: 81.26 W, IA Cores: 75.61 W, GT: 0.17 W. shouldn't it at least be pulling 95W under maximum load? i think i'll start my own thread on this so i dont junk up this one to much as my current posts are becoming more about my cpu than my mobo haha.

can anyone offer some advice on what offset voltage settings combined with load line calibration i should try on my board? i want to eventually run my overclock (wherever i get to) with offset voltage instead of a fixed voltage. should i set offset voltage to + or -? also does load line calibration level 1 hold the voltage up better than level 5? thanks smile.gif
edit: couldn't boot a 4.3ghz overclock with 1.45v on manual voltage mode with LLC on level 2. dont want to be running that sort of voltage but just did it to test. the only thing left i can think of is the power limit for the cpu. i had all of them set to 250W. how high do you guys think its safe to go with that?
edit: ok just did 10 runs with the intel burn test on very high setting with 4.1ghz overclock and it passed so it must be pretty stable there. i did notice something on HWmonitor though which im not sure looks right. underneath the temps for the cpu it has "Powers", here are the maximums for each - Package: 81.26 W, IA Cores: 75.61 W, GT: 0.17 W. shouldn't it at least be pulling 95W under maximum load? i think i'll start my own thread on this so i dont junk up this one to much as my current posts are becoming more about my cpu than my mobo haha.

Hummm...you really should be able to get 4.5ghz without any problems. I have tried fixed voltages and gave me issues like some others. Using an offset + / LLc of 2 and power limit of 300 accross the board works for me. ( sig rig ). At 1.45v that's the range of 5ghz so your overvolted.

cheers bud. I will give the 300W power limit a try with offset voltage. i know 1.45V was very high for what i was trying to achieve but it was just for testing purposes. It must be some other setting i need to change. Was thinking it was a different voltage that needs changing. I have started my own thread on it now though so i'll see what comes of that. appreciate the help mate smile.gif
