If it is a good motherboard, good for overclocking, etc ..... Or if you have any problems.
Thanks!!!!!!!!

I have built a rig with an ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 with an i5 2500K and it overclocked nicely. You should be able to get 4.5-4.6GHz with ease on air. 4.7-4.8+ you may need to up the voltage a little more and get premium air cooling or water whichever you prefer but should be fairly easy to do.

I'm using them with a Z77E-ITX and they're working fine @ 1867MHz 9-9-9-24 1T. I haven't really tested them out any higher yet.

Hi,

My UEFI config is like this (taken from the guide):
Code:
Load Optimized CPU OC Setting: Disabled
CPU Ratio:  All Core
 All Core: 37 (any higher and ratio goes down after few minutes under load...)

GT OverClocking Support: Disabled

Load XMP Setting: Auto
DRAM Frequency: DDR3-1600

CPU Voltage Offset: Offset Mode
   Offset Voltage: +0.005V
CPU Load-Line Calibration: 100%

CPU C6 State Support: Disabled
Package C State Support: Disabled

I didn't have any problems with the same CPU,PSU etc. and Asrock P67 Extreme4/Extreme6.
I can't go any higher then 3700 with Z77 Extreme4-M without described issue.

Regards,
Matt

Matt,
I have sent questions to the Asrock support. Hopefully they will come with some answers/solutions. The most frustrating thing is I had checked the online manual before I bought the board. The CPU Core Voltage option was there wth.gif. I hope I will not have to escalate the issue. Let's keep ours fingers crossed.

BTW second Asrock motherboard and second fail. mad.gif

No offense but when buying a motherboard for overclocking a micro atx board is not traditionally the most optimal choice. I am speaking from experience since they are cheaper boards and cannot have as many features as standard boards and usually do not overclock as well. They are also less likely to have good support for a board that only a percentage of people are buying.

NOTE-This is not 100% perfect information as I am forming my opinion from speculation but it seems logical in my mind.

PS - Any reason you guys with the extreme4-M are using offset voltage instead of fixed? I haven't seen pics of the BIOS but I can only hope you can set a fixed voltage instead of an offset, can anyone verify this?

Hey, I have previously mATX board from Gigabyte and that overclocked insanely high with E7200 and Q9650 with only AC Freezer heatsink. I did not buy this motherboard because it was cheaper. I need one that fits inside Fractal Design Define Mini case. And having 8SATA ports allowed me to get rid softraid controller. If that what you said is true Asrock should remove one of the 3 PCI-ex port, additional SATA3/USB3 ports in the first place. For me it is not logical this mobo lacks so basic configuration and still is named Extreme. What is all fuzz about, there is no possibility of setting fixed voltage wth.gif. No option for CPU core voltage at all. Without this I cannot even run stable my overclocked i7, not saying about offset calculations. That's why I have significant Vdroop during stress test, I believe.

What about Asus Maximus GENE series? There should be no difference between ATX and uATX motherboard except lower number of ports.
