I run mine in slots 2 and 4 but I have Gskill Ares RAM. You should be fine running them in 2 and 4
Thanks for the reply. I went with the Corsair Vengeance low profile and I should be able to run them in slots 1 and 3. Anyone have any opinions about whether it's preferable to run dual channel SDRAM in slots 2 and 4 on this board? Thought I heard somewhere that with only 2 sticks dual channel it was better to have them in those slots.

I should be receiving my Pro4-M board on Monday or Tuesday. I've gone to the ASRock website and downloaded all the drivers and utilities shown there for this MB. I did not see any chipset driver listed there at all. I assume there will be one on the CD that comes with the MB. Am I missing something here? First time using a ASRock MB so I'm not sure how they provide drivers with a new board. Every other MB I've used has had a chipset driver on the CD or available for download.
ASRock Pro4-M driver download page

Also, obviously I won't know which version of the BIOS my new board has until I run setup on it but ASRock lists version 1.30 as the latest available on the Pro4-M download page. If my board has version 1.20 is there any known reason to update to version 1.30? If I do need to update which is the preferred method - Instant Flash, DOS or Windows? I've downloaded all three.
Here are the BIOS downloads available for the Pro4-M board specifically
Pro4-M BIOS update page
Nothing is listed for the Pro4-M MB on the main ASRock latest BIOS updates page as the link below shows.
Latest ASRock BiOS update page

System - all new except for the PSU:
Silverstone Temjin TJ08B-E micro ATX case
ASRock Z77 Pro4-M micro ATX MB
Intel i5 3570K CPU
Samsung 830 256GB SATA 3 SSD
WD Caviar Black 7200 RPM 64MB cache 500GB SATA 3 HDD
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 low profile SDRAM
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler
Windows7 HP 64-bit
Corsair VX550W PSU - bought a couple of years ago but have never used. Plenty of power for my needs.

Might add a discrete GPU card later but plan on using the i5 3570K's built-in Intel HD 4000 graphics for now.

I have the Extreme4 and have a question.
My H100 is plugged into the CPU1 fan header and has started to read 38000+ RPM. Now I know it's not turning that fast tongue.gif and I moved it to the power supply header which read 2200 rpm or so. Anyone have any idea's why it would start reading high? I'm on the 1.8 bios.

Thanks

Can you update your bios and try again?
What does it say in CPU fan 2 header? CPU fan 1 and 2 are controlled by the same controller.

Enjoying the extreme4 that i got, only 2 issues with it so far. my usb keyboard and mouse don't like the bios to much, plus if i boot into dos of a flash drive, i cannot type anything. Keyboard is Genius Imperator and mouse is CM Xornet.

Other issue is fans run 100% all the time. Previous board was an Asus z68. I prefered the Asus Fan control options.

had a slight issue with the temp. i mounted my old Noctua U12P(with artic silver 5) on the 775 bracket.
ambiance temp was around 28-29c
CPU bootup temp (as reported in the bios) was around 39-42c.

is this normal? should i resit the heatsink? or try to find a 1155 bracket?

I tried that. I updated to 2.3 but it continued. I had major issues on 2.3 with my OC so I reverted back to 1.8. Weird thing with the fan controller issue is I have the H100 in the power supply header and plugged the side panel fan (I'm using a HAF 932) to the cpu1 header. Cpu2 has a 120mm on it. All speeds are reading correctly now, however, if I move the H100 back to the cpu1 header, it reads 33K to 55K. Oh well.

OK, upon checking the ASRock site again I did find the chipset driver. Afraid I'm showing my limited rig building experience.redface.gif The driver is not identified as a chipset driver (listed as a INF driver) and is not labeled as an Intel driver but as a ASRock driver.

Still looking for any comments regarding this BIOS question.
