Can anyone give me pro's/cons to getting this board?
I did get an email from asrock telling me not to worry about the qvl, and as long as the ram was non eec and unbuffered then i shouldnt be concerned.
I thought this was the best place to post so i didnt get the "fanboy" debate with other boards.
Ps i am looking @ 2400Mhz ram, cl10, preferably ripjaws z series to go into this board.
Regards
Paul

I purchased the Extreme4 on a whim (black friday deals) and got 2 x 8GB Ripjaw 2133MHZ ram. They work perfectly with this board and I have my i5 3750K OC @ 4.6ghz and loving it!

I would definitely recommend this as a High end economy board, I couldn't afford the Asus I wanted but figured I would take a shot at ASRock and so far have been very happy!

Its these:



Are you in AHCI mode?

Yeah it is in AHCI mode and i try loading windows it takes for ever everything so sluggish ... so i just try putting it on sata 2 and still real slow ... this is really upsetting me...

should my cpu vid be the same as my cpu core
aida 64 reads my cpu vid 1.256 if i up the turbo voltage my cpu vid goes up to what ever i put it at
should that be the same as my cpu v core

ok so my brother just came in here and over clocked my cpu and he put my ram at 1333mhz instead of 2400mhz. he said i was lucky that i got 4.8 ghz stable with my xmp profile with the trident gskill 2400mhz. he had this long story about ppl that by overclocked ram they have to overclock it tweak it and they dont realize ithat..so now im currently running 5ghz to see if its stable then he guna help me out overclocking the ram after we get this stable. he also thinks i might be able to lower the vcore a lil more

First of all you should be using Intel Burn Test to verify stability on your OC. Prime95 takes over half a day of stressing to not prove what IBT can do in under an hour.

Run IBT for 20+ passes (I do 25) at max stress and see if you're stable: http://majorgeeks.com/IntelBurnTest_d5987.html (be sure to watch your temps, IBT will cause higher temps than Prime95)


Also, although I'm still very new to OCing Ivy/Sandy vs C2D/C2Q OCing, I thought RAM played almost zero role in your OC. I know on S775 and older it played a very large role due to RAM and FSB with how they are connected to the CPU speed. With Ivy/Sandy and any i7/i5, I was told and read that your RAM has nothing to do with your speed when raising your multiplier. This is most obvious when you do some searching on OCing RAM and it is completely independent of CPU OCing. Unless you plan on OCing through your BCLK instead of your multiplier, which would defeat the entire purpose of owning a K series chip (unlocked multi). Also if your RAM is 2400mhz RAM, then it's not "OCd RAM", that is the stock speed of the RAM and your brother either needs to do some reading of his own or look at your RAM info.


Of course faster memory is going to increase memory bandwidth and give you a boost in some applications, but if you are purely talking CPU OCing, then it does not matter when OCing a K series chip through it's multiplier:

Once we move on to the second pass, there's no discernible advantage for faster memory on our overclocked system. The Cinebench test results are every bit as unimpressive with overclocking as at stock: overclocked or not, faster memory makes no real difference (though the faster CPU clock speed definitely helps a lot).

First of all the memory is not linked to the clock speed of the CPU in Sandy Bridge. It will overclock as well with DDR3 1333 as with DDR3 2000. That being said I recommend DDR3 1600 cas 8 or 9 for most people as that seems to be the best for most users. I recommend GSkill or Corsair.

(http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/288300-30-best-memory-2600k-overclocking)


In other words turn your RAM to it's default speed/voltage and your OC is not going to become unstable unless your IMC is awful and requires underclocked RAM to run the OC.


(If I'm wrong someone correct me, but this is my understanding)

Pretty decent and clear summary of RAM and overclocked CPU relationship thumb.gif Rep for that..

My only question is what is the difference between BCLK and FSB, because they sound pretty similar if you compare them directly.

In a very short answer , BCLK is a clock to adjust memory bus and hence CPU speed if necessary and FSB is the actual physical route all the data travels between cpu and northbirdge.
