I tell you problems with my current ASUS mobo.

>No LLC or any vdroop control

Overall my mobo is bad for high overclocking. My vdroop is like 0.08-0.1V.

I found your problem. You went with AMD. tongue.gif The Phenoms are terrible OCers when it comes to high OCs of 4.5GHz+

OT: Why is the Extreme9 better than the Fata1ity? (Don't know if I spelled it right)

I thought the reviewer sounded fine. Probably a bit tired from all the initial setup and prop work he did prior. Wouldn't blame him.

can I make one statement about asrock Z77 boards that just totally makes me sick to my stock.

ASRock's Z77 boards do NOT use Digital PWM technology like they state they do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Their Z68 and X79 boards DO use a Digital PWM, BUT their Z77 boards DO NOT!!!! However they are still advertising it!

Now let's take a look at who they are using, Intersil(part of Ziker labs, they only make analog PWMs) instead of Chil(part of IR and they only make digital PWMs). Now Who used Intersil in the past? GIGABYTE used Intersil for Z68 and switched to IR(CHiL) for X79 and Z77 as they went from analog to digital as you would expect. However ASRock has done the exact opposite, they went from CHiL Digital PWM to an Intersil Analog PWM!!!! Their marketing department hasn't been updated however, or I guess they are just too stupid, or think you guys are too stupid to realize. Everyone knows the media are too stupid to realize it. This is worse than MSI's hybrid-Digital PWM, which is also analog.

Also, what are the main differences?

It's true, they use analog design. At least that's case with Z77 Extreme 4 model.

450

From Z77 Extreme 4 review on Hardwaresecrets:

EDIT: Also true for Extreme 6 model:

According to that there isn't that much difference, digital is a little better but also a little slower.

Sorry for the noob question but what is the disadvantage of using analog design than digital pwm design? Does it affect OCing capabilities?

EDIT:
Nevermind got ninja'ed lol

Read the article, not much difference wink.gif Digital is a little more accurate.
