I took some screenshots of my settings and when running prime for a bit.. maybe you guys can lend your insight it would be much appreciated.

What does the Bios 1.23 do? It says improves mouse and keyboard compatibility but anything else?

u need to set it not to boot off usb...
if u have any HDD or flashdrive in the USB, thats whats doing this.

Make sure u have disabled USB boot.

ALSO Disable USB legacy support

Hi im new at ocn forums and ASrock EX4 Gen3.

Anyone can tell me if ASrock EX3 or EX7 Gen3 BIOS or a Extreme 4 (non Gen3) BIOS works on a Extreme 4 Gen3, because I have a small problem with bios 1.10 basically, all my mouse axis are inverted and I cant activate XMP 1.3 only 1.2 weird.

Thanks.

I just got an Extreme 4 Gen 3 and paired it with a 2600k and 16GB of Corsair DDR3 1600. I ran it stock for a few days, running F@H at least 12 hours a day to be sure it was solid and tune the fan speeds. Then I updated to 1.10 BIOS and used the ASRock tuner util to bump the multi up to 44 and let it run at 100% for a few hours to be sure it was stable. It now has about 5 hours of BF3 on it in addition to all the testing, and it couldn't have been easier. If I decide to push it any higher I will drop into BIOS and hard-set the config, but I'm 1100MHz higher than the previous OC on my Q9300 with pretty much zero effort!

Just picked up an ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Board from my local Microcenter for only $139.99.

They gave me $60 off the Board cause I purchased it with an i5-2500K that was on sale for $149.99 for Black Friday! Even though the i5 was on sale specifically for Black Friday, they had also been running a Promo all month long advertising $60 off the purchase of any Z68/P67 boards IF you purchased IN-STORE with an i5-2500K... and they let me stack the deals and therefore I got a HUGE discount!

So got both the Board, and the i5, for under $290!

Also got an 8GB kit of G.Skill Sniper Ram on sale for $30 from Newegg's Black Friday deals, with free shipping, which should arrive later in the week; and then looking forward to start putting this all together! I'll probably have some pics of it within a week or so, after the Ram arrives and I find space to work on it. Its all going into my existing CM Storm Scout which is currently running as a Phenom II x4 955 system; note U-78 in the Sig... actually note Nyarlathotep in the Sig, as that is what this system is going to be once finished!

I picked the ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 after reading so many people here praising it, and also because my local Microcenter carried it. So I guess, count me as a member of this Club now, even though I haven't put it together yet. Will probably come here some looking for some advice now and then as this will be my first Intel build in about 10 years!
