[Official] ASRock Z77 Discussion/Owners Club - Page 57

post #561 of 3170
Not sure if this is the right thread to be asking this, but I was really hoping to buy the Asrock Z77 Extreme4-m. But Microcenter doesn't carry it and has the Pro4-m instead. Looking at features comparison, I would only be giving up SLi + gold caps (whatever that means). Is this correct? Does anyone know any other differences in performance, and OC capabilities between the two?

I have the same board the Z77 Pro 3. It is one of their cheaper boards but I can't complain. I actually like it better than the one I had before. I used to have a Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 and this one is alot nicer. I would've loved to have gotten the Fatl1ty Z77 board but couldn't afford it at the time. But this one does the job just fine. I got it to 4.8 without to much headache. The only thing I can say is does take alil while to get used to all the different settings in the bios from the giga boards to the ASRock boards. But definitely worth it. thumb.gif

Fixed mode ain't working on my Extreme4

1.35v gives 1.32v in bios and 1.3v in cpu-z ***

Upping it to 1.4v BSOD again

increasing LLC also BSOD...

Offset gets me much more stable. This is way strange...
post #567 of 3170
Just did 4.7GHz with 1.25 vcore, LLC 1. Temps reached 88C but I think that is normal because my ambients are VERY HIGH (36-40C).
post #568 of 3170
That's good for your ambient temps. But little too high in my opinion. I would always keep it under 80C for any CPU any time.

I honestly don't like LLC. It seems to plague me with BSODs during idle once every 24 hours. I am IBT stable however. still have to do prime95

I read thousands of guides but nothing seems to help me tongue.gif I have been trying to get my cpu stable for six months i think tongue.gif guess i got a bad chip tongue.gif
post #569 of 3170
Can someone with the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 and i5 2500K help me.

Right now I have my CPU at 4.4Ghz but not stable.

I would like to have my CPU at 4.2Ghz or 4.4Ghz stable.

I have to do to get it?

Thanks.

Is it easy to get it perfectly stable on like 4.2 or 4.3 for everyday use?
