Just saying that ~ 4.50GHz is a peace of cake on these chips. I got the right settings for like 5 minutes. If you played around overclocking LGA1366/LGA775 CPUs you will know they are a lot more tricky.

Actually my Q9550 was easier than ivy bridge for me so far. I am talking in terms of percentage of overclock, not just a set speed. I was stable at 4.0ghz on my q9550 from 2.8, thats a big overclock. The 3570k is 3.4-3.8(turbo boost) 4.5 is not a high overclock in my opinion.

Well idk, personally for me LGA1155 is the easiest platform for OC so far.

I'll be getting my ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 MB soon and just want to make sure I set up and get the latest but mandatory updates from their site.

I'm sure I need to get the latest BIOS which is 1.80 and I'm thinking of using the Instant Flash method to do so.


Also from the Downloads page (http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/?cat=Download&o=Win764)

What do these drivers do ?

- Intel Management Engine driver
- Intel Rapid Start driver
- Intel Smart Connect driver
- AppCharger
- Lucid Virtu MVP


And of these Utilities which are useful to install ?

- ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility
- Instant Boot
- Intel Rapid Start Utility
- Intel Smart Connect Utility
- ASRock XFast LAN Utility
- ASRock XFast USB Utility



Also, how come there are separate drivers for ASMedia USB 3.0 driver and Intel USB 3.0 driver



Thanks alot!
Yeah Buddy!

A quick and dirty google search finds:


Intel Management Engine, See Here

Intel Rapid Start , "Intel® Rapid Start Technology™ gets your device up and running faster from even the deepest sleep, saving time and battery life." - From Here

Intel Smart Connect, "With Intel® Smart Connect Technology in your Ultrabook™, your email, favorite apps, and social networks are continually and automatically updated even when the system is asleep. No more waiting for the latest world news or friends’ updates to be delivered—just lift the lid and you’re up-to-date and ready to go. (Available on select systems.)" From Here

App Charger, See ASRock Info Here

Lucid Virtu MVP Explained in detail here.



For the ASRock utilities, some people use the tuning utility to monitor voltage otherwise just overclock in the bios not in windows. Instant boot can be found on ASRocks website. Xfast lan i just registry settings which you can accomplish the same thing with TCP Optimizer and xfast USB I can attest to it actually improving usb speeds.(on usb 2.0 that is)

Guys anyone knows what this is? I was unable to install any driver for this device and I actually don't know what it is.

It's something from the motherboard for sure.

I googled for you, and it seems to be either HD Audio drivers (on ASRock disc) or the Gigabit LAN drivers (also on disc.)

Hi, I have found the solution. If you go in device manager, click on the pci simple communications controller, go in property and then go in details. You will see a code like per example PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...

The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in my case the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabse.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your

hardware. From there you can search for a driver download for your hardware.

In my case the pci simple communications controller was a Microsoft UAA Bus HD audio. I also had another pci

device that didn't work properly, using the same method I found out that my pci device was an HSF PCI internal modem with code number CX11252-11. I had a hard time downloading one of the drivers, after 6 or 7 times the download started so be patient if you have the same hardware

.

NOTE: to access the device manager, go in control panel, then performance and maintenance, system, hardware and finally device manager.



Good luck.

Intel Management Engine (Intel® ME)
The Intel® ME software components that need to be installed depend on the system's specific hardware and firmware features. The installer detects the system's capabilities and installs the relevant drivers and applications.
Additional Notes
If the Intel® Management Engine (Intel ME) driver has not been successfully installed, you may see an error on a "PCI Simple Communications Controller" in Device Manager.

As far as BIOS, I read that you shouldn't update if you don't need to.


But thanks for the replies to my questions thumb.gif
