post #531 of 1592
Hello fellow Asrockers,
Any of you have issues with the onboard Realtek Audio? Device Manager isn't picking it up at all - it's like it doesn't exist.

Setup:
Motherboard: Asrock X79 Extreme6/GB (purchased two weeks ago.)
CPU: Intel i7 3820 3.6Ghz
GPU: (2) EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB PCI-E
PSU: 910W PC Power & Cooling High Performance 80Plus
RAM: 24GB - (6) 4GB G.Skill DDR3 1866 PC3-14900
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1

Problem:
Device Manager shows no evidence of onboard Realtek Audio hardware. BIOS shows audio ports as disconnected when known working speakers are plugged in.

Since:
Problem has existed since initial setup of motherboard, approximately two weeks ago. 4/15/2012

Steps Taken:
Fully updated Windows.
Scanned Device Manager for hardware changes.
Installed Realtek Drivers from http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=X79%20Extreme6/GB&o=Win764


Any ideas?

I wanted a 3770k, but the $229 price tag on the 3820 at MC is too good to pass up. I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to overclocking, though. I know it is harder to OC the 3820 than it is a fully unlocked chip, so I want a board that is as friendly as possible while still being good on a budget. I'd like to keep it around the $225-$250 range.

There's good documentation on overclocking this board earlier in the thread. I have the 3820 right now, stock settings and the processor screams! It seems that on a cold boot, the BIOS takes longer to finish POSTing than the time it takes to load Windows. Of course, I have a pair of SSD's in RAID0 configuration. I'm certain that helps a bit. smile.gif

Anyone ever have issues with a DVD burner on their Asrock board? I have an x79 Extreme6/GB which seems to be having some trouble dealing with DVD burners. I've tried two now, an Asus and an HP and both are acting wonky. They both read disks but it seems to take forever. I've tried different sata ports on the motherboard, different cables, power cable is firmly in place. Of all the things to have trouble with doh.gif

Anyhow, just wondering if maybe there's some firmware update or driver that I'm overlooking here or if anyone has dealt with a similar issue.

yah i have that a little bit with my samsung bluray. I think its why my windows screen takes around 12 seconds to load off my SSD. even with nothing in it itll start to spin looking for something to read. Also like you mentioned takes a little bit of time for it to read a CD. around 10 seconds after it starts to spin up? same samsung bluray ive had... and ill say it was definitely faster on my last board. not sure if its a driver that im missing... or if its something im just missing in the bios or if its something in the bios that actually needs a fix.

Well it turns out I'm just a tool. The problem was my anti-virus (BitDefender) was set to completely scan each inserted disk. Since this was happening in the background, I had no idea until I happened to notice the BD icon lit up in the tool tray. Turned that setting off and surprise, surprise, pretty much immediate disk access.

You should change core voltage to offset mode from auto or fixed.
This applies to imc voltage as well ...
Oh, and my CPU Z validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2354454

I have the extreme 6 and I don't see an offset mode for CPU voltage only fixed or auto. There is only a additional turbo voltage which doesn't do anything.

I've never dealt with AsRock, but they seem to have quite the following now (obviously with the existence of this thread lol).
I wanted a 3770k, but the $229 price tag on the 3820 at MC is too good to pass up. I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to overclocking, though. I know it is harder to OC the 3820 than it is a fully unlocked chip, so I want a board that is as friendly as possible while still being good on a budget. I'd like to keep it around the $225-$250 range.

I have a 3820 OC'd to 4.6, and it was easy to do. I just recommend a closed loop system, I'm using a Corsair H70 which is the BYO fans version. The Corsair H60 is probably cheaper than most air coolers worth their salt for socket 2011.

There are presets on my Extreme6 mobo for OC'ing, the presets worked on mine up till 4.4Ghz, but for 4.6 I needed to use the preset but then adjust the ram speed to 1666 and CPU voltage to 1.345. Overall its pretty easy though.

I have 8 4GB DIMMS of the Samsung low profile 30nm in my X79 Extreme6. No matter what I do, I can't get the machine to load windows at anything faster than DDR-1600. I can fudge this up to close to DDR-1700 if I increase the BCLK to 106. Anything higher than that is a no go no matter what timings VDIMM, VTT, VCCSA, etc, I try.

I can get into Windows at DDR-21XX with only 4 DIMMs (one per channel). But I have not tested this config and don't know if it's stable at all. Is this normal?

Also, I noticed something strange on the Extreme6 that when I have PCIe GEN3 (vs GEN2) selected in the BIOS, I can't use a BLCK setting higher than 104, but I can get up to 106 with GEN2. I have an HD 7970 and while the computer will boot and load the OS with GEN3 and BCLK 106, the card does not initialize at POST.

Just got my X79 extreme7 and 3930k all set up and running! I will join the club when I can work out the kinks in the system. So far it has no interwebs because Win7 wont boot when the wireless card is installed.
