Very true, that´s exactly why I made sure Asrock uses a removable chip before buying the Extreme4.

This is a beta testing BIOS I received from ASRock

Bug fixes:
Load Line Calibration was always set to 1 when selecting custom CPU Ratio's
and much more.

Won´t be able to test until I get home from work... hopefully someone can try it before then biggrin.gif

cool thanks for the info. The only thing holding me back now is money. I want to move to the small case and the case and motherboard are not a problem money wise its a new graphics card. I will probably end up using one 560 for a while but I really hate to essentially cut my gpu power in half by using only one card. If I can save enough I wan't to grab a 670 or 680.

Prices are steadily going down. Like here's an EVGA GTX 670 for $335 with Borderlands 2 included:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?nm_mc=AFC-TechBargains&cm_mmc=AFC-TechBargains-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA&Item=N82E16814130782

And 7950s can be had for sub $300. The more you wait, the cheaper they'll get. I'd try to sell your GTX 560s while you can get decent money for them. I had decent luck with Craigslist, just requires time and patience.

Yea I would actually only be selling one, the other would go in my wifes machine. But there are lots of other parts that will go up for sale. I will have a complete rig w/phen 2-3 core and a 9800gt (out of her computer). Then I would sell my Raven 3, the asrock extreme 4 and one 560. I would think out of all of that I could get around 300 bucks or so.

Crossing my fingers. It probably wont happen until x-mas though.

O and also I really wan't the MSI PE. I admittedly love the way the twin frozr looks with the blue accents

I flashed it successfully. I had issues with 2.10 and 2.20 and they fixed it for me and returned me this BIOS instead tongue.gif

Those who have Extreme 6, have encountered problems similar with the latest bios ?

Turns out I won't be getting the asrock when I switch to ITX sad-smiley-002.gif

After drooling over it for a while I realized the processor sits almost directly next to the pci slot. My phanteks would run right into that. So it looks like its the $50 dollar more asus itx board for me - I have actually seen a phanteks mounted on one.

But if this all goes through, I will have a slightly used extreme4 up for sale thumb.gif You guys will be the first to know.

So after initial testing with the OC Formula.. my findings are this:

Slots 1 & 2 still have issues overclocking RAM to 2400Mhz
Slots 2 & 4 allowed me to make my 2400Mhz overclock SLIGHTLY tighter by improving RAS to CAS from 12 to 11. It's a shame RAS to CAS doesn't really do anything at all when it comes to performance. Oh well.

CPU is overclocking to 4.7 and 4.8 with slightly reduced voltage, fully stable after a night of absolute torture. It got pretty hot though. I need to get this loop installed.
