Due to the nature of the ivy bridge processors this would be impossible. These processors right now are not grouped by batch or stepping. They are each random as far as overclocking goes. I have not seen a series of processors that are so similar they can use the same oc settings. Otherwise this would be a great idea.



Agreed on the fan controller. However, do research on your fans as they may buzz when connected to a fan controller. I had that happen and had to get all new fans as well.

I think the idea for the datasheet with people's oc is a good idea. Yes, they all oc differently, but if there are a bunch of people's settings on there, that will give people a really good idea of the over all range of the CPU/mobo and a good firm starting point. However, the best way to do it is to start at the beginning and work your way up to the highest most stable OC.

About my problem about not having auto-oc options in bios, I finally found some info from net(this was only place!) from this thread:
http://forums.tweaktown.com/asrock/49315-no-advanced-turbo-30-uefi-bios-2.html

So this problem is real, although it seem to be very rare. Hopefully I'll get some answers from ASRock to solve this.
I sent email to their support about this.

This is a work-around and has nothing to do with me investigating the nature of the odd fan profiles. After all, this is OCN, and people like myself want to figure things out. It's like saying "if you don't want to build your own computer and troubleshoot, just buy a Dell."

I am having an issue with my Z77 PRO3. I purchased a PCI Wireless Card today and installed it into the last slot on my Z77 PRO3. When I turned my computer on a message came up saying "BIOS returned to default settings - Press F1 to continue or F2 to go to setup" I went to setup, fixed my Overclock then I booted up, but it was noticeably slower. I checked device manager and there was no new devices or no driver errors. So I shut down my computer. Windows 7 shut down, but my system fans continued to run. I held down the power button and the computer shut off. I then moved the Wireless card to the other PCI slot, booted into Windows and the exact same thing occurred. So I removed the PCI device, booted back into Windows, turned off the system and AGAIN the same thing happened. So I powered down the system and reset the BIOS. This time the computer booted into Windows faster and shut down without a single issue. What could be causing this? I need wireless because I am moving into a different room very soon.

Thanks guys!

A while back, someone suggested I ignore the SATA 3 ports since the chipset was actually slower than the SATA 2 controllers. Is this still the case?

It really sucks that I can't utilize my SSD to it's full potential...
post #1666 of 3181
This is the case for Marvell controllers which don't operate at full SATAIII speeds. It's not the case for Intel SATA III controllers. You may have been told this about a different motherboard? Extreme4 has Intel SATAIII ports.

Interesting, I'll have to swap them then.

Why avoid the SATA 3 A ports? Is there something wrong with them? I was originally going to hook everythign to the light blue ports, as suggested by an earlier poster and the little sticker on it.

The ASmedia usb ports have given some alot of issues, driver related I believe.
Lots of good info here:

Perhaps I'm misreading something?


edit: Doh... I misread this, apparently I should be avoiding the SATA 3 A-Ports... not the SATA 3 ports all together...

Extreme4 has 2 types of SATAIII ports: ASMedia and Intel. Just use the Intel ones for your SSD OS drives.

Hi guys, i'm new to overclocking and i've just managed to make 4.6ghz stable on my i5-3570k on an ASRock extreme 6 board



just wondering what you guys think of the temperatures and vCore? I'm using a custom built watercooling loop for cooling the cpu.
post #1670 of 3181
I bought another 8 gigs of ram and tried installing it today (4 x 4 gb).

The system will not turn on if I have the RAM [Ripjaws X] at stock clockspeed (2133), but it works fine at 1600. I have the voltage manually set to 1.6v.

I tried loading the XMP profile and the issue persists. I have never run 4 sticks of ram before - any suggestions?
