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.
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
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.
