1.4 doesn't seem to have any significant changes....im still running 1.3...i don't need:

1. Modify i-Rock PS2 keyboard issue.
2. Patch G-SKILL F3-17000CL11Q-16GBXL memory.

Thanks scrappy, I will edit the original post.
PS - Scrappy, we should compare benchmarks soon now that we have almost identical systems with different vendors for certain pieces. smile.gif
I would man but I'm sending out my board for RMA tomorrow.

the board was awesome and i had no issues with it except it wouldn't post with
high memory overclocks. anything over 1866Mhz would spit a 23 debug code
(which isn't even in the manual) even with timings and voltage raised way up.
I even tried increasing the IMC voltage of the 3570K to 1.2 (recommended maximum)
just to see if it would help and to rule the chip out but it still would not post.
It wasn't the ram either as the same set EASILY did 2000Mhz 10-10-10-26-36-1T 1.4v
on my phenom 1605T x6 and ta990fxe which has a thuban imc which is
(from what i understand) a far inferior imc compared to ivy's imc.
I'm actually sending the board out for rma because through this
frustration I attempted to update the bios with the windows software
through ASRock and it froze and thus BRICKED the board.
Moral of this story is, don't update the bios with the windows software thumb.gif

Posting my (past) settings for the extreme 6 i got
i5 3570K @ 4500Mhz 1.265 VID fixed voltage in bios LLC level 1
1.256v under load in OS. all turbo, speedstep, c-states disabled.
constant stable 4500 @ 1.256 load. temps never broke 71c on any core on my h100.
they were more or less in the low 60's 95% of the time.

I've owned the Z77 Extreme4 since it first came out and can't complain about much.

The one issue I have is, I'm running a Corsair H80 running 2 x GT1450s in push pull, and noticed that the board had two CPU fan headers, which can be temperature controlled. Plugging the fans into these headers, it appears that only CPU Fan header 2 is slowing the fan down, whereas CPU fan header 1 is not, the fan remains at full speed.

Anyone else having an issue with this? I suspect it may be because the first header is for PWM fans, and my fans are only 3 pin, but I would have thought it would adjust both.

I already have fans plugged into the other temp-control header (Chassis 3 I think), the other 3 headers don't offer temperature control. I also want to refrain plugging them into my fan controller.

Thoughts?

Check the BIOS. My Extreme6 BIOS defaulted to 100% fan speed. If I look in ATXU (ASRock's tuning utility) it's the same; fan speed level 10. It's setting CPU_Fan1 to 100% speed permanently. You can change it to PWM if you want.

How do you change the fans to PWM in that program? Or do you just manually change it in the bios?

I didn't even realize you could change overclocking stuff from that program lol. Do you guys trust that program?

I don't see an option for changing the fans to PWM in ATXU, but I do see it in my BIOS.

I wouldn't bother using ATXU for overclocking personally - its fine for fan control but I'd rather use the BIOS to do anything more complex. It seems that it only applies OC settings when the software is running, too.

I pretty much use ATXU as a secondary HW monitor, next to CPU-Z and Speedfan

Ok, so in the BIOS I have the option of 'Full on' or 'Automatic'. I set it to Automatic, then I have the option of the CPU Temerpature, which I assume is the temperate at which the fans will ramp up, and the Target Fan Level, from 1-10. Now this works perfectly fine...on CPU Fan 2, but it won't throttle Fan 1, and they are linked together.

I've got the extreme4 and see now option in the bios to change it from PWM to whatever. Running 1.3 bios.

Also, as a tip, I was just stuffing around in the bios trying to shorten my boot times, and realised that if you select a hard drive and it's an SSD, you can change it to 'Solid State Drive', which has decreased my boot times by about 5 seconds (before it sat on the very first screen for about 10 seconds).
