post #1241 of 3170
I got a Z77 Pro4-M and am really enjoying it like my last ASRock board, with one small caveat. For some reason the board will throttle down to the stock turbo multiplier on my 2500k (33x) when it reaches 70C. I've tried raising the max long / short power limits, current limits, disabling c states and thermal protection but it keeping doing it. This only happens (70C +) running LinX /w the AVX extension in a stress test, so I'm not too worried, but it is kinda annoying.

The P67 Pro3 I had awhile ago could do 4.5 GHz using auto voltage and keeping the c states on fully stable in LinX with the same heatsink (Hyper 212 /w 2x 1600 RPM fans)...but it also had more robust voltage regulation, 8+2 vs. 4+2 on the Z77 Pro4-M. So I guess the question is whether the 70C thermal throttling is a needed safety feature since this isn't really an extreme board, or a bug. I just put the rig together yesterday and updated the EFI to version 1.3 too.

Thanks for any help!

what if you connect them to the blue usb 3.0(the ones next to the LAN port specifically)? do the keyboards light up? backlit/other stuff?

Hmm could some Z77E-ITX owner tell if they have cpu pll voltage adjustment at uefi? Just started to do some slight oc and noticed immideatly that the option is missing completely. ( No i dont mean internal pll overvoltage smile.gif )

You want to use d-mode, monitor plugged into discrete GPU, and make sure you update the drivers from lucid logix website.
edit: There are 2 features, virtual vsync and hyperformance. Virtual is the more stable feature, and thats all you need to run vsync on without input lag. Hyperformance adds even more responsiveness, but I've seen stutter and other issues with this, so mostly just leave it off.
Thanks for the info.

I shall have to do some benchmarking and see how things go. Back to an old 8800GTS after my card blew =(


Another question i have is does anyone know why my SSD write speed has dropped since moving from an Asrock P67 Extreme 4 to ITX Z77? Both motherboards had the latest BIOS, both on Windows 7 64bit, in fact the motherboard is the only thing that has changed (oh and the case lol).

Which sata port do you have it plugged into, the intel or asmedia? Make sure whichever one it is the drivers are installed.

It is plugged into port 0 which is SATA3, which the read speed confirms as that is as expected. But, you mentioning drivers has reminded my that upon installation of windows there was one "unknown" device, which even after installing all the supplied drivers and those from windows update did not install. I shall investigate that further, thanks.

Yes. I commented on it a few pages ago. Increased temps, requires more v for your already stable overclock. Not pleased.
