ASRock 890gx Extreme3 Problems..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello All..

I won't bore you with the details but ASRock sent me a new Extreme3 890gx motherboard which I am trying to use successfully without much luck.. All my other components have been tested and is working in my MSI 880gm-e41,

Anyway has any used a RAID 0 setup on this board with Windows 7 x64?

I keep getting random freezing, no BSOD or errors in event viewer, at the start I relised that it was defaulting my memory at stupid timings of 1600mhz @ 6-6-6-15 which is miles off so I got the correct timings of the G-Skill website and set them up..

I have updated to the latest 3.10 BIOS, and my CPU is not overclocked..

I went to re-install Windows 7 (with the copy I have a licence for) and it's got stuck, I have used hirens boot cd to test all hard drives (no bad sectors) and memtest for the memory (3 hours, no errors)

Any Ideas?? My hair will fall out at this rate of faulty motherboards

PS.. Could RMA this board but costs £30 in total to get it to the Netherlands and back, so don't want to waste any more money on this board as I have already done this once..

No one is gonna get board friend, that is why we are here for smile.gif
Is system getting crashed during Windows 7 installation, or after installation. or while you'r at windows 7 logo ?
I have had this type of problem too once with my MSI 790FX board + 2xSeagate 500GB.

Try this:
Download latest AMD series 8 chipset RAID driver and extract it to any USB drive.
It seems 64bit AMD RAID Driver has not been WHQL signed yet, That's why we have to disable 'Driver Signing Enforcement' in advanced boot menu (F8) just after when it says 'Press any key to read from CD/DVD'.

Now when it is at 'Install Now', load 32 bit RAID driver first and wait a while till windows finds 'HDDs',
Now go to install now, at partition selection menu, again go to load driver and this time load 64bit raid driver.
Now click on install/next.........let the windows installation completes.....and see if it solves your problem or not !

Do you have the HDDs plugged into the right sata ports?

I know my 880gm motherboard had 2 specific ports for a raid array. Like most boards do.


Try installing the OS without a raid array first. See what happens, Also, did you activate the Raid settings first?

I followed the instructions as in the manual. The Ports are all the same but will try without the raid next, I got the latest and raid drivers but still no joy ..

To make sure no bad settings were still present I reset the BIOS and it all of a sudden recognised my memory correctly then when the windows installs restarts my machine the timings screw up again..

Thank you for the help, I went to London for the weekend so when my girlfriend told me of all the computer shops at tottemham court road, temptation got the better of me and I purchased a ASUS M5A99X Evo for £100 after some bad haggling skills..

So I'm happy biggrin.gif
