Picked up my extreme 4 today. Is the board supposed to be slightly curved? As in, holding it up, it isn't completely flat.

Cheers for that. Thought that might be the case. +rep

Here's my 4.5Ghz OC on my i3570K. It seems like 4.5 is my wall. To get over this wall I have to REALLY start upping the voltage to be stable. To get to 4.7 I have to go into 1.32-1.35vcore. Is it worth the extra 200 Mhz if I have to up the voltage that much from my 1.2v right now? I'm wondering if there are any settings in the BIOS (using 1.80) I can change to increase my OC further. LLC? Using level 2 right now.

I suggest doing overclocks with C3/C6 enabled. And then on one core you can reach 4.8 GHz without crazy temps


I have 4.6 GHz on one core --- 4.3GHz on all 4

I have a perfect 1.3v-1.325v
I am at 46 on each core. Voltage = 1.28

1.8 is good so far with my previous overclock of 4.6 I will see tonight how forgiving it is when I try to go higher.

Are you running stable now with your 4.6 OC? I still get a freeze (no blue screen error) every week or so. I've noticed it happens when I have a lot of windows / browser tabs open and stuff running in the background (so I imagine the clock speed is going up and down a lot along with the load). I went back and tested this OC for 24 hrs of prime instead of 18 too, not sure if I have an HDD issue or something now.

Ok, i got this motherboard today, I installed windows 7 on my brand new samsung ssd and it had to reboot, but after the reboot i get an infinite bios bootloop. Do you guys have an answer for this?

Did you try lowering vtt? I lowered mine to 1.057 i believe (im at work right now will check when i get home) and it seemed to improve greatly. I may go down another click or so and see what happens. I am also looking into lowering my voltage with this overclock. (4600mhz) and see how the new bios likes it.
Did you update to 1.80??? in the patch notes I believe it said they updated cpu code. havent had a long period of time to test if it is truly fixed or not but so far so good.

Did you update the firmware on the ssd first? What are you hard drive settings in the bios? Make sure your set to ahci and using the ssd driver in the bios(yes i said use the ssd DRIVER in the asrock bios)



PS: For anyone having trouble here is my reference bios updated to reflect changes I have made to offset voltage and other voltages and update to 1.80 bios.

No, should i update the firmware first, i dont really have a working pc right now.
What do you mean with harddrive settings? And yes I set the driver to ssd.
