Getting my 670 today. Should I just not install HD 4000 drivers and disable iGPU in BIOS?
post #2734 of 3169
Hi all,

I bought a Z77 Pro4-M motherboard and an i3 3225for my HTPC, and whule everything is running just fine and cool and quiet, I did get some anomalous temperature readings in HWMonitor while stress testing my undervolt (my previous chip - an AMD APU - could undervolt just over 0,2 V on stock settings, so I wanted to see how far this chip could go).

My OCCT stress test got aborted because one sensor gave a reading of 127 C - it was either CPUTIN or AUXTIN, and I was puzzled. Later I ran Prime95 for a bit and took a screenshot of HWMonitor.

Here's what I got:


I've seen odd sensor readings before (usually fan speeds) but never this much.

Is it something to be concerned about?

Hmm, I sold my GPU so I needed to use iGPU for a day or two to wait for my new card to come in. My iGPU no longer works though. I put in a spare card and the option for initiate display in North Bridge doesn't even list iGPU. Also I noticed that since I took out my chip to inspect for bent pins my RAM frequency is no longer adjustable over 1600MHz (I used to run it at 2200MHz)

I put my CPU in a spare H67 board I have, the iGPU works fine and the RAM is fully adjustable. Do you think my board is dying or do I need to have a closer more in depth look at the pins?

EDIT: It's a Z77 Extreme6 btw

Well I admit defeat now. I have gone through 3 z77professional boards and I have never gotten ram to run in dual channel mode. Was the exact same problem on all boards and thats going through 3 different models of ram. On all boards only the first 2 dimms would read the memory. Would always get a Dr. Debug. 55 error. So I have decided to start from scratch again. Kind of excited too!! Just bought a z77 extreme 4. The z77 professionals worked i just couldnt use the last 2 slots for ram, and I want to use all 4 slots because thats what they are there for. I want all slots filled!! Love the setup on the bios. Very user friendly. I am positive this extreme will fix my problem. THANK YOU EVERYONE that has been patient and helped guided me to solve my issues with my build.

New Build: (same as old build with new MB)

CoolerMaster 912 Haf series
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 (replacing the ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty Professional LGA 1155
Intel Core i5-2550K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost)
COOLER MASTER V8 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Dual ASUS GeForce GTX 550 Ti's SLI'd
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 power supply
seagate 500gb HDD 7200
pny 120gb SSD (gaming)

Wish me Luck!

Actually it sounds like the CPU. Because the memory controller is on the CPU and if you used three different boards, and three different RAM kits, but had the same problem on all combinations then your IMC on the CPU is probably out of whack. Let us know how it goes with the Extreme4.

Sounds quite similar to my thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1365061/overclocking-options-suddenly-vanished-asrock-z77-pro4-m/0_60

Check to see if my other issues match yours?

Hi guys,

It seems I have manged to kill two Z77 pro4-ms in a week.

From what I can gather, the BIOS has freaked out. There are reports of this throughout gooogle. Have any of you had this or head of this?

Board 1 issues: (Link to topic)
Max multiplier is limited to stock speed (K CPU)
Max Ram speed limited to stock
Onboard GPU didnt work.
Half my RAM missing

Board 2 Issues:
BCLK remains at 100 no matter what I do


Both boards ran fine until I tried to do any form of overclocking. To be clear both boards "work" fine, but the options seem to get locked out in the BIOS.

Board 2 lasted less than 30hours frown.gif


I welcome any advice really, I dont think I want a 3rd board frown.gif
