Tanks. I had seen them at some point in the past few days, but just could not find them today. I was starting to worry that the ASRock had some quirk like the gigabyte mobos used to have, when you needed to press F1 to find the advanced settings.

Okay, so I've had the weekend to play with this Extreme3 and the i5 2500k, and basically, I simply set the mult to 45, set my memory to 1600, and that's the extent of the OC. I've tried the suggested settings and yielded no benefit so far. There's no fsb to tweak, it remains at 100. I ve a solid OC at 4.5 tho it wobbles down to 4.1 and 4.2, and even 3.9 at times. And when idling, it d rops down to a mult of 16 no matter what settings I change. So at this point, I'm a bit frustrated on how to hold the OC at 4.5 and get out of power saving. I've tried all the tweaks and nothing changes.

And actually, it is very stable right now, and that's not a bad OC. So I can live with it. That's basically a 1+GHz OC, and that's the best I've ever had. Plus, this is a great chip in and of itself. I need to run some video encoding and see how it does. That will be this coming week. Need to do some work tonight. Thanks all.

Would be awesome if I could get the links to the guide to work. When I click on them, they just load the op of this thread over and over.

Got the pics to load. Still cant boot with anything over 4.4.

I set everything the same as in the pics on the op.

I changed the following.

vcore was set to 1.485
No HT as I have a i5.

No matter what I do, I cannot get this board to boot over 4.4 GHZ.

I know it is not the chip as I can boot and run stable at 5GHZ on my Asus board. Could I have a defective board?

I did all of that except for the last setting, which I set that to disabled. I'll try it again tomorrow (need to go to bed), and leave Package C-support at auto. You know, perhaps it's the monitoring/benchmark programs I'm using that indicate the drop. I'm using the OC software that came with the mobo (only for monitoring), cpu-z, and OCCT. But all three report that the speed (mult) is dropping to 1.6GHz/16. The UEFI, however, reports the speed as 4500. But that's true even when just bumping the mult.

Give it a fresh try tomorrow. Thanks Lucky.

Hey, it worked! I also noticed that vcore is stable at 1.32. I still get a little flicker at 4.5, ik.e., when running OCCT (and I assume prime95), it drops from 4.5 to 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, but otherwise it does not drop down to a m ult of 16. At idle, my temps are 32C.

I had to try this before going out to work. So keeping that one setting (Package C-State Support) at auto made all the difference. Thanks again.

Whatever the default is. In the guide, it says 500, 500, and 1. I can try this (I tried it before, I'll try again) and see h ow my mult, vcore, and temps are affected. I'm at work now, will try this when I get home. Your suggestions so far have been helpful.

In the past, on my gigabyte motherboards (DS3 and the one for my i7 Lynfield system), I've always turned off speed steps and the C1 and C-whatever settings so that the cpu did not drop down to a lower multiplier (and thus vcore). I've always kept a constant slightly over-volted systems, and, well, the my e6600 has been running for 5 years n ow. So I assume that turning off speed step and keeping a constant slightly high vcore will not damage this cpu so long as I keep it cool.

OOPS, wrong limited. Those I have listed above are for turbo boost power limit.
