I'd think if the BIOS battery had gone out, then it wouldn't keep any time after the PC was powered off.
Still, I can't figure out why when the PC is powered down, that the internal BIOS clock isn't keeping
proper time on its own. I'll revert back to the 2.20 BIOS, to see if maybe it is a bug in the beta L2.26 bios.
I reverted back to the 2.20 BIOS and had the PC off for 2 hours, turned it back on and the time was correct.
I'll see if tonight it keeps the proper times after being off for 8-9 hours.
If it stays correct, then it may have been an issue with the beta L2.26 bios.

So this morning I turned the PC off at 2am, then back on at 11am, and it did keep the correct time with BIOS 2.20.
So the problem had to been with L2.26. Hopefully whatever the bug is, they will correct to before releasing 2.30.

I had a similar problem to this before and clearing the CMOS fixed it.

Hey guys, long time lurker first time posting here.

I bought a z68 ext3 gen3 last December, along it a 2500k and 8gigs G.skill Ripjawz, so my system is as follows:

2500K
z68 Extreme3 Gen3
2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz
Sapphire HD6870 1GB
Seagate Barracuda 250gb and 1tb
Western Digital Black 500gb
Coolermaster GX650w Plus Bronze

I'm posting on this thread and not making another one because I think the issue is with the board, and not anything else (PSU, VGA, and drives were from my previous rig and everything worked perfectly; while I don't think either the processor or ram could cause an issue like this, stability test and memtest indicates everything's working as it should). And in the hopes someone with the same board could help out.

The problem I'm having is that on every emulator, even simple ones like NES, SNES, or arcade machines ones, I face an intermittent "jitter". It does not seem like a stutter, more like the frames skip for a second (60 fps feels choppy for that while), then goes back to normal, then choppy again. As I said, the problem is with every single console emulator, and the issue is the same in every one. I DO NOT face this problem on native PC games, every game I played so far worked perfectly, no stutter, no considerable framedrops, nothing, everything smooth as butter.

Of course I tried different chipset drivers, different video drivers, formatting, etc. I've even tried disabling stuff like power saving states, HPET, spread spectrum, onboard devices from the BIOS and did not change a thing.

I tried too with the IGP of the 2500k after uninstalling the AMD card and respective drivers, nothing, SAME issue.

I've sent a ticket to ASRock support and they recommended me to update the bios, but they said it was only compatible with Ivy processors. Well, I've read that some users failed to update from 1.30 to 2.10 uefi, but I don't think that the latest bios doesn't support Sandy processors anymore.

Anyway, I don't know what else to try, seems like a stupid issue which I cannot possibly solve. If anyone has any ideas to what might cause this, I would gladly appreciate it since I can't figure out what might be causing it.

If this doesn't belong here, I'll make a separate thread.

I would suggest updating the bios regardless. Is your processor currently overclocked, it might help narrow down dome things if it isn't for now.

I'm big into emulation as well, but I use a dedicated PC for that, so I've never noticed any issues. I'll see if I can replicate this on my Extreme3 Gen3 when I have some time later today, and report back any findings. Seems odd though.

Would you mind reporting your bios version with your findings too?

Hey, thanks for the quick reply,

Nope, never overclocked it yet (well I just tested the multi at 40 for about an hour, was stable, but I reverted it back to stock). Memories are running at factory specified 9-9-9-24 2T 1.5v.
