post #1191 of 1592
Has anyone tried the recent bios releases for the ASRock X79 boards released over the past month or so?

I flashed bios version 1.90 on my X79 Extreme6 and am suddenly experiencing intermittent hangs just as Windows 7 starts to load at startup. Seems to happen more often if the PC has been off for a while and did not happen with my old bios.

Anyone else experienced similar issues?

Did some reading on the Champion, that is one heck of a board..... Top 3 X79 easily...

I appreciate that info, I was about to update the bios on my extreme6. I'll wait awhile on that since I don't have any problems.

Not all Asrcok X79s use SB fan, my fatal1ty professional doesnt need one, is passive cooled.
And for a pasive cooled SB is awesome cause i dont go over 33 ºC on the motherboard temp after an hour of Prime 95 so no need for a fan really.

@PatrickCrowely: The Champion is a very very good board, the professional I have is too. 4 PCI-E slots, good layout etc...
Comparing mine with a Gigabyte UD3 the asrock had a VID of .05 less volts downt to 1.15v for a 3820 which is kinda nice plus the loads of power phases on both the pro and champion. You cant go wrong with those boards.

I know fatal1ty has passive heatsink. We were talking about "Extreme" series if you read the thread throughly. Fatal1ty was not an option while we were discussing. Don't worry, I have "some" knowledge about boards.

I thought that fatal1tys were included as OP said he did some research on thr Champion, sorry.
I know you have "some" knowledge , and I happen to have a doubt smile.gif
Whats the max multiplier for 3820? Wasnt it x43?

That was my doubt, bios let me 44 but when i fire up P95 it goes back to x43.
I was doing some oc and stresstesting a bit . Im on 4.3Ghz with 1.270 with voltage control on auto, going to start fine tuning for 4.3 and then ill go for higher but temps are climbing too much as I said before and its quite strange cause when I tested in the other boards none of the 2 cpus got this hot.
When I open the case to install the additional ram ill reapply the TIM and see if it works better.

Thanks for the advice.

Thats very odd, how much difference was there regarding temps when u did same overclock?
