Nothing special for setup. I am just a newbie at overclocking. I simply used the built in "easy select" overclocking feature in the BIOS setup. I just selected 4600Mhz from the list of options for my processor. Any higher setting than this was marked in RED color, so I avoided those options. I did not tweak anything else other than my RAM which operates at 1866 natively.

My system is awesome because I used all the best parts to build it with.

Corsair H-100 Liquid Cooling
Samsung 830 Solid State Drive
Corsair 32GB 1866 Native Speed RAM
EVGA GTX-670 2GB "Play-to-Win Video Card

hmm, seem like the 2.10 bios is causing everyone some trouble, should I update my Bios from 2.00 to 2.10 on my Z77 Extreme 4?

Also, next time try doing the flash while inside the bios by clicking on the flash option instead of F6 in the splash screen.
Pro, is there any way you can send me pics of your bios overclocking setup? I've tried various guides (and advice from people on here) but can't get my 3770k to stay oc'd without throttling down all the time. It's been driving me absolutely nuts.

Actually Pro could you SAVE your settings using the OCDNA utility and send it to us? The OCDNA utility it´s designed for this kind of situations smile.gif

Unless you are running Windows 8 or need fixes listed below I would say not at this time.

1. Support Windows 8.
2. Modify ASMedia SATA3 can't detect HDD when CSM disable.
3. Add i7-2700K to CPU EZ OC, Advance Turbo 30 and Power Saving Mode support list.

Note: "Ultra Fast" is only supported by below conditions.
1. OS is Windows 8.
2. Graphics supports UEFI GOP.

I am running 2.10 since I am dual-booting Win7 and Win8 and have not had any problems.
I think I saw on another forum (don't remember which one) that 2.10 may allow you to run the Trident 2400 ram @ 2400 if you have a 3570K.
BTW
It is best to update bios with Instant Flash and not in windows and when updating you should set your bios to UFEI defaults.

Thanks for the tip, when I updated my bios from factory default to 2.00 in windows, my M/B sensor spend 3 days reporting a -1 C temp, it later fixed itself it seems(reporting the normal 28-31C)

Since I am running Windows 7 & 3570K, not using the ASMedia Sata 3 & using 4X4G Corsair Vegenance at 1600 9-9-9-24 1.53V (can OC to 1866 9-11-11-28 at 1.6V but seem like the extra Mhz isn't worth the latency) I think I will be fine with just 2.00.

That is the impression I normally get. The exception to this rule is that they change more than what they tell you in the bios. If you are having problems getting stable it is always nice to try a different bios. Just my 2 cents.

Can you explain the "OCDNA utility" I was looking thru the ASROCK UEFI Setup Utility and did not see anything by this name. I did however, discover where the instant flash feature is. I will use this for the next upgrade.

Question: Would not changing your UEFI settings to the default values before a BIOS update force you system out of RAID mode and destabilize any RAID volume data. This is one of those setting I though you cannot change after RAID volumes are already estabished in RAID mode.

I have seen this on another system, where if RAID config is switched to AHCI on a system with hardware driven RAID and you load the OS up and then reboot changing config back to "RAID mode" then you RAID volumes will not longer be accessible. Thus having to recreate the RAID from scratch. Perhaps this is only if your OS partition is raided.

Question 2: Again, I am a newbie at overclocking. My RAM configuration is XMP 1.3 DRAM Frequency DDR3-1866 10-11-10-27
The UEFI utility defines what these values mean and shows a minimum and maximum value for each number. Right now all of my setting are set to "Auto"
Can anyone tell me more about 10-11-10-27 of the four dashed numbers is a higher number better or worse.
Here is what I have installed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233238
On the product box description it shows the settings as (Timing 10-11-10-30) (Cas Latency 10) (Voltage 1.5V)

Can someone tell me if the listed settings on the package are better or worse than how my system is configured now. To put it simply is (10-11-10-27) better or worse than (10-11-10-30)
The figure 27 in the number set is the RAS# Active Time (tras)

I appeciate the response as these settings are Greek to me.

I ordered an Asrock Z77 Professional-M for my new build I'm doing with an Intel 3570K and a Silverstone TJ08B-E case to replace my current sig rig. Going back to a nice small M-ATX build again biggrin.gif

Should be here by Thursday. Ordered it on Amazon right when it came in stock today and within two hours it went out of stock again lol.

Did a quick search in this thread and doesn't seem like anyone who has the Professional-M has posted in this thread. Anyone out there with it? lol

I will take post photos once I get it and when my new build is finished biggrin.gif

I´m at work right now so this is what I can answer.

question 1 : http://www.asrock.com/feature/OCDNA/index.asp

take a look at this table after reading link 1
http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme6/?cat=Download&os=Win7

install the second program in the Utilities section.

question 2: I always run my ram at stock timmings and rated voltage in the Core I 5, 7 3xxxx platform never had a problem yet...your rated voltage for memory es 1.5V so if you are running 1.65V and then there is a possibility for damage...possibility not probability wink.gif
