Its realtek but im ok now. Haven't tried my wireless card yet because im still getting everything downloaded. So far so good this board has been running w/out any problems. Just wasnt sure if the drivers were reliable since sometimes the ones on the disk are outdated but it worked.

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

Sorry I would have just taken a screenshot but I can't find my USB stick tongue.gif this is just the settings I'm currently using so use it as you will though do this at your own risk as each overclock will be different with every configuration/cooling/psu etc...

So far my idle temps are around 28-30C/Load, prime95 70C, IBT 75~ on an H50 cooler w/ Noctua fans.

If there are other settings you think that might help lemme know thumb.gif

Very Nice! smile.gif What H2o setup do you have? Kills me how many OC'ers forget to list their cooling setup :O What were the room ambients? When and where did you buy the 2700? Did you right down the batch #? smile.gif ... Also hope you plugged in your extra juice (molex connector) for your SLI PCI_E lanes smile.gif
That chip is a beauty, how high have you stably clocked it? You might want to pull 2 sticks of ram for Max clocks ... or crank up your VTT?

Got my extreme 3 gen 3 up and running last night and been finishing up a few things today. So far this is a great board, posted first time, no issues what so ever. After updating windows 7 my old linksys wireless adapter still doesnt work due to no drivers available but im going to get a new one that works with windows 7. Also loaded the onboard audio drivers and sound is working good. Right now im really happy with it biggrin.gif

Edit: I did have 1 issue that i forgot about, my cooler master xornet mouse doesnt work at all in bios. I move the mouse but the pointer just says in 1 spot but since im so use to going through bios w/ a keyboard it really doesnt matter. I probably wouldnt use it anyway

A bios update might clear up your mouse issue! Many Asrock users have had this mouse and or keyboard problem!

I definitely plan on tweaking the settings to see how far I can get. Just haven't had the time yet too busy gaming at the moment . biggrin.gif I'm very impressed with this board so far though. Temps are excellent and stay around 70 during prime 95. No freezes or BSOD's. I'm sure I can get it higher than 4.4. Technically I haven't even tried the 4.6 profile yet I might give it a go and see what happens.
