I started digging deeper wink.gif
The controller itself has few modes it works in(way of steering fans).
More you can read here http://www.tonylin.idv.tw/dokuwiki/lib/exe/fetch.php/sd3:sio_hm_nct6776f_pg_v0.8.pdf
it seems that you can control speeds from 0-12V. Looking at mobo pics on the net you can see its NCT6776D.
Going to dig deeper let me know of your results wink.gif

Just installed the z77 Extreme 6 which comes with BIOS 1.20. Should I upgrade to the latest? seems a heck of a lot of changes to 1.90. Quite surprised, from buying the board the other day it comes with a BIOS as old as March.

This Intel platform has me all warm and fuzzy more so the fact I haven't been on Intel since 1998.

I've found P1.40 to be the best in terms of OC'ing.

I tried SpeedFan too, but it doesn't read my processor's TJMax correctly or some such, and I could probably adjust it manually, but it also didn't read the package temperature correctly at all (wrong temperature sensor), so I uninstalled that too. Which is why in the end I ordered a fan controller =/ What would be great is a more customizeable speed control software package from ASRock, like what Gigabyte offers with EasyTune. You can set a CPU fan curve there at least.

What was the outcome with the CPU fan speed? I had to set mine at level 1, which is a 1500rpm fan. Am I right in saying when it reaches 50c it'll go full speed? or is setting level 1 the max speed it'll remain?

It's idling at 25c with 960rpm.

Anyone else tried BIOS P2.10 on the Extreme4?

It looks like it's stuck at LLC level 1 here. ASRock claims my motherboard is broken. I say this problem only occurs with BIOS P2.10, P2.00 runs just fine...

If they continue doing like this I am going to their factory and throw it in the face of their CEO.

ASRock has now become ASSrock for me.

Hmm, I seem to be missing a ACPI driver... yet I can't find it on Asrock's site nor can Windows7 find anything on Windows update...

First off I have not tried 2.10 since I do not have windows 8 and dont need the functionality.(windows 8 is the only real justifiable reason to flash to 2.10).
Secondly If they claim it is broken you should be able to RMA it.
Thirdly the CEO would not be at their factory he would be in a corporate office somewhere maybe 1-3 days out of the week otherwise he is relaxing and collecting checks either at home or some vacation spot.

Honestly if the problem doesnt happen on 2.0 why would you need 2.10 unless you want to run windows 8 right now?

I'm curious reading the Intel specs with memory/core voltage and why the z77 Extreme 6 defaults to 1.65 memory voltage? when Intel recommends 1.50. I just find it odd defaults are out of Intel's spec.

I'm also curious why the latest Hardware Monitor 1.20 wont show DDR voltage.

Hey there ! I have an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard arriving on the morrow, I'll be sticking in an i5-3570k and 8GBs of Corsair Vengeance RAM. My primary thought is to upgrade the BIOS while it's still fresh, what do you folks reckon is the best version to update to and what is the best method?

A million thanks in advance!

If you set your CPU target temperature to 50C, that fan will be at RPM corresponding to level 1 until the motherboard decides that the CPU has reached 50C. Then that fan will ramp up to max RPM.
