They sure are great motherboards. That's a shame, because only a few caps are gold colored.

Carried the GTX570, 2x500GB RAID 0 WD drives, Blu-Ray and DVD-RW from sig rig as well as the HAF 932 and plumbed it into the existing loop. Added 2x240GB Agility 3 RAID 0 on the Intel SATA3 ports.
Next will be overclocking and upgrading the water loop. I love the board so far, sound card was worth it, I need premium sound. Can't wait to OC.
I haven't updated my sig or galleries, but here are some preview pics:

I'm still not sure about the blue in the middle of my all-red fan scheme, but it's starting to grow on me.

Welcome aboard! Glad to see a new owner! Nice looking build you have there. biggrin.gif

Got this nice 24/7 overclock going on now. I love how this processor doesn't need much voltage to overclock and how stable this board is. biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I just joined your forum since this thread seems to be the most active one ATM about the Asrock x79's.


I've been thinking about upgrading my Ubuntu Linux server, which is now running a Asrock G43 board with e6300 and 4GB of DDR3. I'm planning on running multiple OSes at the same time under Virtualbox, so I'm guessing I need a lot more uumpf then what the e6300 can provide.


What got me interested in Asrock X79's in the first place was the announced support for ECC memory. I'd love have 32GB (8*4GB) of ECC memory running in my server, just for added reliability. Using ECC memory would of course mean running a Xeon processor, and the perfect one for me would seem to be the 6-core Intel Xeon E5-2620 (6x 2.00GHz, 15MB L3). The only problem, it isn't supported by any of the Asrock x79 boards yet! I'm wondering, would it still work, even if it's not recognized properly by the BIOS? Would I be able to set and use ECC?


Anybody else running a Asrock x79 with a Xeon??


I was planning on overclocking it slightly, would a 50% Increase be possible (3GHz 24/7) ?

It all depends on how the Xeons are, I'm not familiar with them, but I don't think they have any unlocked Xeons yet, so overclocking to that spec would be difficult.

Second, check out this here, I know my board supports all the upcoming Xeons. This seems to be the case with all of their X79 boards, and the bios update needed is already available.

Also, i have found that if you remove the amazing looking X70 pieces off of the top of the VRM heatsinks, they actually cool a little bit better...

Sad but true.

I read from a SB-e overclocking guide that you could adjust the BCKL strap to 1.25x or 1.33x, this would be effectively raising the CPU clock by 25% or 33% but not touching the actual BCLK itself...am I badly mistaken here? Last time I was OC'ing was with s775 gear, so I have a lot of new things to learn.


I have scoured the Asrock sites and forums, and yes, they do support many many new Xeons, but not that particular 2620 one. So I'm wondering, will it work at all? I believe the 2650 is identical to the 2620 in every way exept that the 2650 has 8 cores, the 2620 only six.

Welcome here and to OCN Jultsu! I'd say your best bet would be to purchase the X79 Extreme6. It does support many different Xeon processors. It also supports 8 slots of DDR3 up to 64GB. More than likely it already supports the E5-2620, if not very soon. There's been a BIOS update March 9th to update the CPU code. I'm not sure how well the E5-2620 overclocks, but I'd say 3GHz is doable. You may need water cooling though.

Last time I was OC'ing was with s775 gear, so I have a lot of new things to learn.
I have scoured the Asrock sites and forums, and yes, they do support many many new Xeons, but not that particular 2620 one. So I'm wondering, will it work at all? I believe the 2650 is identical to the 2620 in every way exept that the 2650 has 8 cores, the 2620 only six.

That way of overclocking should work just fine, but you will only be able to strap at 1.33x, 1.66x, and 2.0x. The way the BCKL straps work is that they "STRAP" the bus at a certain speed, so anything from 100-116 is strapped at 1.0 and anything from 117-133 is strapped at 133. Don't quote me on the actual numbers but that is the way it straps.

You can go above at 104 or 137 and still be stable, but anything past that risks stability and your other hardware because that would overclock your PCI and other busses as well.

If you want, but my a 2620, and I will plop it in my Extreme 9 and let you know if it works biggrin.gif

Also, there is a x79 professional for sale on OCN here.

There's a link in the first post for SB-E overclocking. smile.gif You'll have to experiment a bit to see what works for your processor, board, and memory. The new UEFI BIOS helps out quite a bit in having some default settings to choose from to overclock with. That will give you a feel for what settings were changed to achieve it.
