Anyone bothered using the ASRock EZ OC settings? If so, how did that work out in the long run?

I'm getting ready to OC my 3930k to 4.5 GHz (hopefully), but am contemplating using one of the pre-sets (4.4 GHz most likely) first as a quick and dirty method for some benchmarking tests. However, if the EZ settings work well, I may consider being lazy (admittedly less fun) and sticking with it if I know it holds up nicely long-term.

Thoughts/experiences, anyone?

The auto overclock settings got my cpu all the way to 4.8 lol. Some of the reviewers said the auto settings might give a little more voltage than needed. I'm back to stock speeds for now because of to much heat in my case. Keep a watch on your VRM temps if you plan on doing stress testing/benching.

I used the EZ OC settings today to boost my i7 3820 up to 4.63 GHz (rounding). Worked perfectly fine for me. Didnt crunch it too long on the stability testing though. Made it through an hour on Prime95 Large FFT before I dropped it back down to 3.8 GHz. Just wanted to see how hard it would be to get into the 1 GHz OC Club. Proved to be a piece of cake. Here is my validation for proof.

I will push my system harder after I put in a custom water loop. I was running superpi @4.8ghz and got a mid 7sec 1m! When it finished the run my system got a bsod and the bios would not stop locking up. I thought I killed my rig and was freaking out! Turned out to be my ssd went bad. Now I'm a little scared to push my rig to hard.

Does anyone know where I can get the RAID drivers for Extreme6 online? Any documentation regarding creating a RAID boot drive mentions getting the RAID driver from the installation which, in my case, is unfortunately screwed. Won't load in any drive any more frown.gif I've found all other drivers on ASRock's site but can't find the raid driver I will need when installing windows.

I think what you're looking for are the drivers labelled, rather confusingly, as the "floppy" drivers.

Ha, that's funny. I was thinking to myself "Seriously, they post drivers for the floppy drive but nothing for raid?". So probably labelled that way b/c they want you to put them on a floppy drive. I get it smile.gif I'm guessing I want RST assuming RSTe is for enterprise version, right?

Thanks JML

I learned this the hard way, myself. lol I think back in olden-times, one would put them on a floppy, and so the name just stuck. Legacy terminology is common in the tech field, it seems. I put them on a usb stick when I installed Win7 a while back and they worked just spiffy. Yes, if you want TRIM (and why wouldn't you!) then go with RST. It has worked nicely for me thus far. thumb.gif
