Hello,

Happy that I find this thread through Mr.google, I'm trying to read the pages still in the beginning though !

I'm also happy with ASRock Z77 extreme4, but I have a problem with USB 3, I tried to google for answer, the only answer I found so far is to disable USB 3 Legacy in bios and you wont have a problem when you use that hub for devices such as external HDD,etc ! if you don't face this problem then you're lucky, but still many people effected by this bad patch,people like me face mouse lag, mouse moves very slow etc it feels like the system if very over-loaded while the CPU consumption around 1% !

My question is there a way that I can fully use this option without disabling the USB 3 Legacy ?

I'm very newbie to OCling stuff but I try to learn/teach myself step by step, I also would like to OC my CPU to only 4 GHZ, my current CPU is Intel 3570k, does the default OC ok or it's sloppy and I should OC myself ?

Thanks alot in advance,peace.

What bios are you using? Have you checked the Asrock site for a bios update?

Hello kgtuning,

I just checked and it says P 2.20 the latest bios in here and it says 2.30 :
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&os=BIOS&Model=Z77%20Extreme4

The bios 2.20 should fix this issue but unfortunately it's not, even last night I updated Intel thingy :
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=21129

I'm not sure what causing this but Intel in release note says "it should fix format now bug" but I didn't notice anything and the formt pop window still show when I insert my external HDD, not sure if I've to update the Asmedia too, I can't find it the one in ASRock is outdated :
http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Download&os=Win764&Model=Z77%20Extreme4

Trying to find a new driver for Asmedia not sure if I can find it, I don't know why ASRock use third part stuff and mis things up !

This is the whole story for now, also do you recommend updating the bios ? I'm really scared of updating because my system runs like a charm and as they say if it's running don't try to fix it unless this bios is fixing my problem which is not mentioned in release note.

Sorry too much to read,cheers.

Extreme 4 2.20 BIOS has a LLC bug which means that LLC level is stuck to 1. It can cause your voltage to spike really high under load. The 2.30 BIOS fixes this problem and updating is really easy. I have done it many times without any problems.

Hello Elenkhos,

Thanks for the advice, I updated the bios to the latest and the system running smoothly, I've not got the chance to check the USB 3 yet but I'll update if there is a problem which I hope not.

...

One more question :

When I change bios settings, for example disable Intel Rapid Start, Intel Smart Connect and save changes and exit, the system completely shutdown then starts up not sure what causing this ? is it something to do with not configuring sleep/hibernate correctly ?

Can you or someone point out a guide that enable me to make the computer never go to sleep ? I've windows 7 ultimate 64 and I changed the power plan already to high performance, set sleep to never, display to never, disabled hibernate, but sometimes when I use or click something I hear the system waking up and like and engine ignited, what I want exactly is to make my system always 24/7 awake, is there a way ?

Cheers.

That is intel speed step. Your processor downclocks and under volts when it sits idle. Then when you are trying to do something it will scale back up.
This keeps temps low and makes the fan not run all the time at a higher speed.

If you do not want this feature enabled, disable "Intel SpeedStep" in the bios.

I have found that my mouse and keyboard is erratic when in the bios setup. Also if i boot into a dos mode from the flash drive i cannot use the keyboard. I think the system compatibly for keyboard and mouse needs to be looked at. I had a similar issue with the Asus z68. I then got a new keyboard and it sorted that out. Now same story with new keyboard and new motherboard. Wthin windows it seems fine.

Hello aar0nsky,

I went to check the bios and I found this option under advanced, what your thoughts in this ? should I leave it as it is or disable it, I mean effect my system wise, I don't have problem with noise as I've 7 fans ! also what your thoughts in Deep Sleep feature ? I found it under South Bridge if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks for the input,cheers.

Hello kyton,

I'll tell you something but it's coming from non your high end technical person, after heavy research I found it out that many boards effected by what they call "Third Party USB" like Asmedia,some other boards use Etron if that's the correct name.

So I did my best to do everything from my part, updating bios,updating drivers etc the only solution is to diable USB 3.0 Legacy in bios and you will not face a problem, since your case is keyboard and mouse then it's not a big deal you will not notice a change, let alone I guess you shouldn't use USB 3 for mouse and keyboard, but even if you're using it in USB 2 also try to disable the legacy and leave the normal USB Legacy enabled inorder to use your mouse in unsupported platforms ex dos and bios screen, but you can disable USB Legacy the normal one if you're going to use the cord/regular/non USB mouse and keyboard.

Disabling USB 3.0 Legacy will effect the speed of people using HDD's etc, but it's not that important for me.

I hope you got my point, speaking in not much English and not your uber technical level biggrin.gif

I disable Deep sleep.
There is a link to my BIOS settings in the original post of this thread located here.

Those overclock settings are old but the features I have disabled are what they need to be for overclocking safely and without problems.(unless someone see's a mistake that may be unsafe but for the most part I have not had issues)
