Quick question fellas, where can I get the latest Intel MEI driver for the Z77 Extreme4?

The one posted in the ASRock website is not the latest one as far as I can tell.

Broke the stupid pci-e sliding lock mechanism on my z77 Extreme6 while trouble shooting a video card fan problem....oh well, the screws hold it pretty securely.

My understanding this/ime/mei is for IT remove access to your pc in a business/enterprise environment....install the driver (to get rid of yellow asterisk in device manager, but not any software.

So I installed the latest intel USB 3.0 driver and now my keyboard doesn't resume my pc from sleep state...only my mouse. I wonder what's causing this. BIOS is set up to wake pc by USB keyboard n mouse.

lol tell me about it....it was working fine but I used the link on one of the earlier posts which had the latest drivers and I installed the important ones. After that when my pc is in sleep mode and I hit the keys on my keyboard it won't wake up my pc. I uninstall the driver and then it works fine. Not sure what it is.

Never mind...I figured it out! Device manager>Keyboards>Properties>Power managemente>enabled "allow this device to wake the computer....Done! rolleyes.gif

Can the Extreme 4 owners and others check if C3 and C6 disabling is working? I disabled it with my 2500k, but it seems still active when reading cpu clocks and voltages in Throttlestop.

I made a bug report but they are not answerring.

My warranty is maybe expired I don't know, but can I get a refund for this ? Their previous BIOS has a screwed up LLC so I have to go way back to the first releases where Windows 8 is not supported.

Please elaborate on more stable. What was so drastically different.

It's not just about extreme OCing, the power delivery is cleaner and more efficient. Also the components have a longer lifespan and run cooler at the same speed/voltages. If you live in the US, it is a no brainer for $11.80, now these guys claiming hundreds of dollars difference, definitely not worth that. I would say it is worth $40-$50 IMO. Especially if you are shooting for 5ghz+ or trying to undervolt with an OC (like me).
I live in the U.S. I got the extreme4 when it first came out for 89.99. The extreme6 was over 150 at the time.
Your overclock is 4.2Ghz according to your sig. Tell me how the extreme6 helped you get there over the extreme4....
Please show me a comparison of the power delivery differences between the extreme 4 and extreme 6,(I am asking for real world proof that the power is in fact cleaner).
Also your comment about "shooting for 5ghz" is completely not true. It is clear that there is no consistency in Ivy Bridge chips and that they are random. I believe it would depend more on your chip than your motherboard at that point. (I dont have Sandy Bridge so I wont comment on it.)


If you are having stability problems overclocking on the extreme4 then you are doing it wrong.
