Thank you!

Just install the thermal radar software and set custom profiles for the assist fans.
You'll never hear from them again biggrin.gif

Thanks. it's funny , I played with the Thermal Radar when i first got the board. I'm only seeing those "allow fan stop" buttons now. It's all good , keeping the fans installed. They kick in when things get to 45 degrees.I'll be too busy to hear anything at that temp. biggrin.gif

shut down pc but leave power on to your power supply. Check how I did it in my antec build log photos in my Sig.


You mentioned 1206. Have tried 1304?

I believe I also flashed 1304 the other day as well. I tried using the flashback feature right now and the LED just stays solid, indicating that it's not working. I downloaded the .cap file from the Asus website. Any advice?

Fixed it. The file has to be named Z77ST.cap for it to work. I flashed back to 1015 and I can now get into BIOS. Thanks guys.

I've heard the Asrock is an amazing board for OCer's. I've got mine at 4.5 and im using two RAD's temps hover around 67ish under full load with my Sabertooth. Honestly though I bought the board because I liked the way it looked. From what I understand most motherboards perform within 5-10% of each other (although I've not used enough boards to confirm). I don't want to steer you away from this board because I'm more than happy with it, but that Asrock is supposed to be really good too thumb.gif

What is your LLC setting; What vcore are you getting in cpuz under idle/load?
[/quote]

cpu-z reports as low as .992 idle and load up too 1.208

Last night I adjusted the cpu offset from 0.010 to 0.040 LLC is default no crashes so far, I'm going to try Intel burn test (run it ten times or so).

Temps are in check if that matters around 67c
