OC on 970 Extreme 3 mobo - Page 2

That means 4Ghz isn't stable. Up the CPU volts (not past 1.5-1.55v) or lower your OC.

Well it seems not only is my chip a rejected thuban because of two fail cores, it also seems to fail the turbo core test for amd. It will only clock up to around 3700mhz nothing more no matter how many volts i put into the chip. Not sure if i want to return it and try another one. Worst part of all after i bought this chip they went on sale on newegg from 120USD down to 100USD :X. O'well glad to know the board is good but im somewhat disappointed, but then again there is no guarantee for 4ghz.

In my experience freezing is usually memory related. Have you tried increasing the Dram Voltage? Are all the Dram specs manually entered in bios?
To make it easier for those who want to help you, please post your system specs (rig sig) in the user CP.

Hello this is an update to my current situation. I found out that the freezing was caused by what I've found to be the vrms. Whenever my CPutin on HWmonitor were to hit 70 degrees Celsius the system would freeze. I think this is a built in function on asrock boards preventing the vrm from going bad. I did two things to alleviate my problem.

For one I replaced the stock heatsink vrm with a copper ones from enzotech,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708008

, and I also put the second item on the ferite chokes (I think that's what they are).


Second I bought a case that allow me to mount a fan below the motherboard to remove as much hot air as possible, also the new case has 2 fan slots on the top of the case that vents out hot air.

So in all im enjoying my 960t at 4ghz and it is able to do prime without freezing during even hot days out here, like 90 degrees +.

Thanks for the assistance from The Pook, and The Sandman for giving attention to my problem. I look forward to my time spent on these forums.
