Also about the bash against Prime, please tell me you have some evidence to back this up and not some opinionated viewpoint of a sub-par tech journalist. Since when is IBT the standard for testing stability? Please link me to someone that is reputable saying this.
The same person posted they could run numerous tests of IBT but crash on prime. Prime can test more than just your cpu. It also can test(with a blend test) your overclocked ram that you "implied" would not affect your cpu stability.
Also if you really want to test stability I would try folding@home.

I did not say RAM would not affect a stable OC, I said if he doesn't have a crappy IMC then he would be fine at his default RAM speeds on a Multiplier OC.

That is why I said this in the post you quoted:
Quote:
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.

There is no single CPU test that is perfect, but I used to run Prime95 for 15 hours+ and never fail and then fail in IBT after 5 passes. IBT always produces higher temps and is the benchmark of choice for many CPU OCers. If you want to run Prime95 for over 12 hours then go ahead, I'll stick with IBT for 1 hour.

I don't believe there is any site that says THIS stress test is the one and only test to run and I wasn't saying that either. I was simply advising him to give IBT a run and save himself some time.

It's like arguing about RealTemp vs CoreTemp, don't you have better things to do?

I used to have a p5n 32 esli, that had dreadfull issues with ram and i dont want this issue again.
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 dont mean to be a pain in the preverbial, but i am assuming due to the lack of responses that there are pretty much no issues when it comes to compatibilities??.

I have had this board for about 8 months with no problems. I love this board. I just want to warn you that it is a thin board so be careful plugging in you power supply connections and other components. You don`t want to push to hard.

Honestly, I never owned any 2400 ripjaws-z nor do I know what 'qvl' means (which are the requirements you put) to give you any informative feedback. But it does seem a bit odd that you would spend so much on memory (2400 kits are expensive) that cost almost as much as the board.

You can get the 2133 kit, oc it yourself to 2400 or more with relaxed timings (the OCN way) and save some cash (or step up to the Extreme6).

Not saying there will be compatibility issues since I don't see a reason why it should not work on the Extreme4.

Thanks and thanks for the heads up, - my guess is the extreme 6 will be the same, which is only £20 dearer, also i will assemble cpu, cooler and ram before mobo gets installed.

I was thinking about the samsung green, but the uk price is £70, and the ripjaws z series is only £80, 2400 c10, my guess is to clock the 2133
would mean relaxing my timings which would probably give me c10 anyway maybe??, i really dont understand about o/c'ing ram, i barely know the minimums for o/c a cpu.
I did get an email from asrock saying not to worry about the QVL, as long as its non eec and unbuffered.

Thanks, the 2400 z series is only £80, here in the uk, - i was looking at the dominator platinums, but downgraded as i will put the rest of the funds to a new 24" monitor (along with the price difference between the 3770k and the 3570k).

Thanks for the replies guys, although i would still like to hear if anybody HAS had ram issues and with what kind of ram it was??

Regards

Has anyone had issues getting a Cooler Master Storm Trigger to work with an Extreme6? I think my mobo isn't providiing enough power to it. Either that or my cable is screwed up somehow. Keyboard was unplugged for a week while I was painting my bedroom and stuff and went to plug it back in and now it's not detected on boot or by the software.

Can someone tell me what Intel Management Engine Components does exactly? I installed it when I got my new computer 2 months ago but I still have no idea what it does even after googling it.

In Add/Remove I have three different programs listed which all seem to have been installed with Intel ME:


Intel Management Engine Components
Intel ME FW Recovery Agent
Intel Trusted Client Service


Is it safe to uninstall all of these and in which order should I do it?

Ok, gentlemen. I need help with the fan control speed on my Extreme6. Currently I have 2x Blademasters attached to the one CPU fan header via a Y Splitter.

Even when I set it to Automatic fan settings, the fans run at full speed all the time until I manually go into AXTU and lower the fan speed. I don't want to continuously rely on AXTU for fan control, so how do I get the mobo to automatically regulate the fan speeds?

Currently I have the settings at Automatic, LVL 9 at 65*C. My CPU doesn't get near there unless I'm running Prime95.

Possibly a dumb question but..

Can I fit my Sapphire 7970 (2.5 width) in the bottom slot and still put a sound card in/ plug into the sata 3.0 ports on the extreme4-m?
