I've been having hanging issues on some games and I am worried for my CPU frown.gif

I think I may have figured out what is causing this particular issue. At least it seems to have remedied it in my case. It seems to be a setting in the power scheme of Win7. Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options. From there click on "Change Plan Settings" for whatever your profile is. In my case it was the High Performance profile. Next click on "change advanced power settings". You'll see a popup window with various power settings. In that window scroll down to and open "Processor power management" and then "Minimum processor state". Change the value here to 0% and CPU-Z should start reporting the correct Core Speed again. It seems to fluctuate more than I remember it used to, but like I said, it seems to have fixed the said issue. Hope this helps!

Quick question fellas, what's the general consensus with the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 Board? I'm looking at purchasing one as soon as January rolls around (I'm currently running an ASUS P8P67 B2 rev, this one still suffers from the Sata 3Gbps port(s) bug/issues, not to mention that I'm unable to flash to the latest UEFI since they only support B3 or newer), are there any known issues with the board? People regretting buying it? I doubt this is the case since most reviews I've seen really recommend it.

I'm all ears... Thanks.

I've had nothing but luck with my Z77 Extreme4 board. I've had my 2700k over 5Ghz using it and running it stable 24/7 at 4.8Ghz. The board definitely won't be a limiting factor with your build!

I have a 2600k with the Z77 Exrtreme4 and I love it. I am doing some builds for friends and I am going to use only the Extreme4. Zero issues and have done about 5 builds with the board, Hopefully that helps !
post #2305 of 3170
Thanks for the replies fellas, keep 'em coming.

+rep

EDIT: I also like the fact that the board comes with a non Realtek NIC, Broadcom IIRC. Which is pretty sweet since newer Realtek NIC drivers have been giving people mild DPC latency spikes, the only one without this issue is an old driver build from March IIRC (7.053).

Thanks to you and enabling 0 on my High Performance profile helped my cpu throttle down to 1600Mhz under low cpu use. I had been wondering why my cpu wasn't throttling down like before and this did the trick! Thanks!
