post #2691 of 3170
Hey guys, I'm wondering if my Extreme 4 is starting to die on me already. Today after installing some fans I couldn't get my bios to post. I removed one of the sticks of RAM from the module and and shazzam, back up again. I tested the the stick of RAM in another slot and it worked fine. Tested some back up RAM in it's original slot and nothing. So, I know that slot is dead. That was a couple hours ago, but about an hour ago, all the sudden my screen went black. Fans were spinning and all, no video. I reseated the GPU and it did it again, this time everything shut down though; no fans and no lights. I booted into the BIOS after a restart, and noticed my mouse was spazzing so I had to use the keyboard. I did find a firmware update and allowed that to run. I've now been back on the computer 5-10 minutes since that happened. I'm thinking of just RMAing this board, but I just would hate to have to rebuild AGAIN.

Well I guess I jinxed it. After it was running out I went to reboot, and it never posted after. Dr. Debug gives me varying codes relating to memory. Tried 4 different sticks in all kinds of arrangements and no luck. Reset CMOS and resettled everything as well. jealoussmiley.gif


I guess I'll dust off my Wii U for a couple days.

OK, here's what I did. I had an old HD 5450 laying around, so I put that in the first PCI-E X16 slot, it booted fine with it. I put the PCI-E X1 tuner in the 2nd PCI-E X16 , with the HD 5450 in the first, slot and I got no recognition of the tuner until I manually set the speed to Gen 1 in the bios for slot 2.., then it was recognized.

Thanks

Aloha!!!

Lately i've been doing some research and it seems that this board is really best bang for the buck right now. I also like the fact that it has ALC898 Audio instead of the 892. The LAN is also great.

Ok this might sound hilarious but...

So i decided to check loads of some gameplay videos using this type of motherboard and noticed that all gameplay using this mobo had some kind of "slowmo" feel to them. When i compared this with loads of other random gameplay videos with other motherboards the gameplay felt "faster or snappier".

Is it a placebo effect or is just a coincidence that all people using Asrock board use the same encoding settings which could cause the" slowmo" feel?

Or will we in the future realize that even motherboards can have latency issues due to their designs?

I'm actually looking to buy a great motherboard without worrying about funny stuff like this

So is it worth spending a little bit more and get something else? (Kinda interested in Msi Mpower)

Thanks again!!!

Hey Guys,

I'm working on a new build with a Z77 Extreme6 and running into a bit of a problem:

I was having trouble installing my Win7 on my SSD and thanks to some advice from another forum tried running an update via internet flash. The update stopped for a couple of hours at 15%, I was unable to move mouse, use keyboard, anything, and I (stupidly) rebooted the machine. Now I receive a series of beeps on boot up and have no video.

When I press CMOS Dr. Debug displays 4F then F1 then F2 and sits at F2 for a while.

Is there anything, aside from calling ASRock and attempting to fill a RMA that I can do?

Thanks for any advice,
Alex

I once had this issue installing an OS on an older one of my builds where it froze while expanding windows files, It turned out to be faulty RAM. The fault occurred because the RAM had errors during the OS installation process.

if its a faulty bios flash i think really the only thing you could do is buy another bios chip and replace it? you can get one from http://www.bios-service-center.com/product_info.php?products_id=32627
i would try your RMA first though smile.gif

I am still having issues with freezing during startup randomly. I cant tell if this is my ssd or my mobo. Although I still randomly get freezing in the BIOS frown.gif

If I find time to start actually benchmarking again I will probably purchase a different board. I am also about to get a different case so this may be a good time to do both.

I'm working with an Asrock Extreme6 and i5-3570K. At stock bios settings, both CPUZ and Real Temp show quick fluctuations in core speed even at idle.

Like with 1 to 3% CPU usage, I'm seeing Core Speeds between 3200 to 3440 MHz on real temp

With CPUz, it gets into the turbo range of up to 3700 MHz, and this is at idle. These fluctuations happen about every second. It does not seem to downclock like it should. Not seeing below 3200 MHz with real temp

With prime95, it pegs at 3600 MHz and stays there. Bios has been updated. Any ideas on this?


EDIT...I found it. Installing the Asrock utility adds another power management option in Win 7, and it disabled speedstep.
