*** Maybe better suited in the Intel MOBO section, so I'll make a post there too ****

I'm about to receive a Asrock z77 extreme4 but I've heard that the RAM slots are 'weird'

Slot 1 + 3 accept 1600mhz but 2 + 4 dont..... can anyone confirm this ?

Also what else is 'iffy' about this board ?

I intend to overclock using the OP tutorial to start, but if this board has issues, I'll be looking at the MSI Z77A-GD55 or Gigabyte Z77X-D3H......

@Lucky,

I guess offset : -0.015 and turbo: +0.043 succeed with 1hr of prime, I will try to decrease the turbo a little bit to see if my full vcore will be lower than 1.336. if it will be stable than Im good to go to let prime run for 8hrs ?

prime + browsing web



ROFL test passed for 1hr prime but look at the temps that increased at the end of the test biggrin.gif

Those temps jumped only when prime test done. During the prime it was all the time between 65~78*C

I will decrease Turbo and test again. Maybe Im close?

So additional turbo voltage might not be needed but this also depends on what your idle vcore is an how much we can decrease it by.

Its just kind of hard to judge where you need to be, we need to pick an offset, see where your at on both idle and full load then adjust so your not overvolting for either.

During Idle, 0.960v average. Full 1.240v exact.

I just built a system w/ that board for my cousin but i can remember what slots i used for dual channel. Overall though its a great board, i had absolutely no issues w/ it. Personally i feel ASrock has more to offer for a better price right now compared to other manufactures.

You are supposed to use slots 2 and 4 if you only have two sticks of ram. There are no issues with 1600mhz ram in any slots.

wow ok Nice thumb.gif We might be able to go lower w/ the full load vcore but this is where it get hard because the only way to decrease you full load vcore is by decreasing your offset which also decreases your idle vcore. So its a little of trial and error here biggrin.gif

Pay close attention to your idle while decreasing offset, probably don't want to go below .92v. Right now turbo is not needed. I would try a -0.020 then run P95 for 30min to 1 hour and lets see what happens.

Also before your run P95 browse the web for a minute and open programs ( explorer, word etc...) to see if you get any idle or light load crashes. If not then start up P95, keep a close eye on your full load vcore in CPU-z and your temps keeping them below 90c. Let us know
