Seems to work fine for me. The fan control is still the same, not very happy with that. I haven't run many tests except for a full PCMark7 test. Gonna mess with it some more this weekend. Looks like it's running a couple degrees cooler. Other than the fan control I'm very happy with it! No bugs. There's a few new settings over 1.30 that I need to get myself familiar with.

Can this be used on a desktop?

I thought Intel Rapid Start is simply hibernate to NAND, which allows your notebook to resume from a zero-power hibernate state in 5 - 6 seconds.

apparently it is a *new* feature of Z77. you have to use an SSD.

maybe ASRock just forgot to remove it from the beta UEFI. final bios might not have it. however Smart Connect installed fine. just don't have anything to test it against.

Hi there,

I see that your have updated the UEFI of your mobo, is yours the older Gen2 or the newer Gen3 model and how's the new 22nm beta doing on it?

gen 2. i don't see anything different tbh. my 3DMark11 score seemed a bit higher than before. but might not be a result of the bios upgrade.

Ha! Finally found someone with a Gen2 mobo flashed with the new beta, does the UEFI also sport the new colourful icons too just like the others?


It will be great if you can post the F12 screenshot capture of this system summary page of your UEFI so I can host it for the other Gen2 owners to have a look see, thx.

The above screenie is from UZ7's Gen3 mobo, of course.
