Not sure if its the extra bandwidth or just that the cards are working properly now on the E11.
That is a dilemma with trying to sell the RIVE. I was still in my 30 days with my 2nd RIVE and I was able to get a full refund.

thank you for clearing this up for me, this looks promising, the only thing that is holding me back is how am I suppose to get rid of the RIVE after I get the extreme 11, I doubt anyone in the region would fully appreciate this board, whats really bothering me though is the PCH fan running at full speed, if I can fix that I don`t think I will get the extreme 11, but so far I have tried everything I can think of, I became disparate about it and just unplugged it, currently my pch temps are 45c and 48c under heavy load, but my case is well ventilated so no problem there. is it true that asrock extreme 11 fan is kinda laud? but am guessing you can change the fan speed settings in the bios just like the rive right?, I wonder if I can get my hands on an alternative PCH heatsink without the fan, just like the one on the formula, and evga x79, this would be great and would save me alot of money.

Under load the extreme11 seems to auto adjust the CPU ratio. Mine is set to 4.6, but when I put it under load it goes down to about 3.4

*edit*: nevermind, my Vcore was too high, and it was throttling back because of the high temps.

At lowest speed its loud. At highest speed, it sounds like a freakin' tornado, even though its not moving a lot of air. Horrible little fan. If you're not going to watercool it, I would suggest unplugging the "x-fan" and pointing a good nice quiet 120mm fan right at it.
post #155 of 1199
Second that the x-fan is loud. I do have a 120mm fan already pointed at the chipset and it helps keep it at lower rpm. I do have my PC under my desk so noise doesn't bother me.

@ Headoncollision
If the fan is bugging you that much I would save up for water loop. Even if you keep the RIVE 3way 670s you are going to run into some CPU bottleneck that will require some high CPU OC. Water will help you achieve a the higher OC needed while keeping temps low to protecting your investment. I have only seen a PCH heat sink combo with VRM water block for the RIVE. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=33426


@cpachris
Have you seen any changes with bios 1.3? All I saw on Asrock's website is increased PCIe compatibility. The new Internet flash bios update is definitely the easiest way I have ever updated a bios version before. thumb.gif

it frankly does, cuz am running a quite system with noctua and seasonic 1000w platinum psu, and a punch of NZXT fans and the system is relatively quite, and I have the case sitting on top of the desk, so when this little fan is plugged it becomes really annoying, speaking of waterloop I frankly was thinking about it yesterday smile.gif and said to my self instead of spending money on a new motherboard I could just go waterloop, but am kinda terrified that something may go wrong and a leak happen or such, where there is no way I can send any of my hardware back for repair or replacement. I know very little about water cooling, apart of owning a corsair h100 4 months ago, I know how it works but I don`t know how to put it together it and install in on my pc , I will probably start reading about it and thanks for the link you sent me, these blocks look cool, but am sure there are plenty of other blocks for the rive, that require some research. are you watercooling, if so, how easy to install and how safe it is?, does it require much maintenance, like draining the water few months or so?

I think BIOS 1.3 helped when I load the XMP of 4x4GB Ripjaw @ 2133. Before BIOS 1.3 the machine would mostly either stuck after POST with Dr Debug Code 67 when I load the XMP Profile 1 or 2, or BSOD would happen quickly after Win7x64 logon, or 5 to 10 minutes into running P95 blend test. It does not matter - what VCCSA voltage is set, from 0.89 to 1.20v; higher vCore voltage; no CPU OC with all default Auto settings; turning off C states; manually enter the RAM speed & CL settings... You name it, I tried it. The only thing is I had not started changing the BCLK.

Flashed BIOS to version 1.3. Just curious when I lost all my BIOS settings from the flash, loaded XMP Profile 1 = could logon to Windows but BSOD would happen when I ran the Windows Experience Assessment (my lazy way of quick test of stability).

Spent more time reading this guide, though it is Gskill for Asus, it helps me to understand what the settings are in general:
http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10512

Followed the guide to set VCCSA to 1.10 from 0.89.

30 minutes into running P95 Blend test w/o any BSOD (knock knock on da wood)

Will see if it will pass the 6 hours test!

Cheers,
jack

Watercooling is not that tough, but it does take research to know what you need and how to install to be safe. I installed my first water loop @ a month ago it was actually pretty easy to install. I went the easier and cheaper route and bought the complete XSPC kit. And my temps are great! You can pick and choose to build a complete custom loop if you want. You will get a little more performance, but it can get pretty pricey. Also the complete kits are great for beginners because all you do is pick what size fittings you want and the providing company will make sure that all the components fit correctly. If you do go with a complete kit go with XSPC with a D5 pump only as other complete kits suck.

As for draining and refilling your loop on a maintenance schedule; it depends. Most people will say every 6-9 months you should drain and refill your loop, but this really is where you should have a solid grasp of what you have running in your loop. Many people run the same distilled and biocide/killcoil for a year or more without issues. Some even 2-3, so this can easily be debatable. If you decide to run a premix solution, consider sticking to the 6 to 9 month interval to make sure you aren't getting gunked up blocks or any precipitate matter floating around. Me I just run Distilled water ($1 from Walmart) and Killcoil (that came free with the XSPC kit) and I should be good for about a year. But I do keep an eye out for any debris lurking around.

For how to install a loop there are many videos on Youtube to show you how. For first timers just build your loop inside case then take out of case and fill with water and do a leak test for a few hours. Here is one of the best Watercooling for beginners threads. HERE

Hey guys so a couple of issues/questions on the ASRock Extreme11.

First, what are the LATEST SATA RAID drivers for this board? I keep getting conflicting info on this and when I try to update them, it keeps saying the latest driver is installed.

For the C600 SATA RAID Controller driver (under Storage Controllers), I have version 3.5.0.1092. Is this the latest? I saw a version on the Intel Download Center that said "3.5.0.1101" but when I try to "update" it, keeps saying I have the latest one(?).

Then, for the chipset drivers "Intel C600/X79 ..." (under System Devices), it says I have verseion 9.2.3.1016. Is this the latest version?

Also, how do you exactly update Intel RST?

The other issue I'm having is getting my RAM to run at 2400Mhz CAS9 (9-11-11-31 @ 1.65V). It worked fine for a while but then I started getting crashes in BF3 and Premier Pro CS6. I put the RAM speed down to 1600Mhz and it runs flawlessly.

What are the settings in BIOS I need to adjust (voltage-wise) in order to get the RAM to run at its rated 2400Mhz speed? I know that the 3930K is rated to run at 1600Mhz so 2400MHz will be stressing the IMC especially given that I am running 11 hard drives (10 SSDs and one HDD and one optical drive) AND 4 GTX-680 Classified in 4-Way SLI. I really want to get the RAM to run properly and although it seems to be able to do it, the system is not stable. Also, if 2400Mhz is out of the question, would getting the 32GB 2133Mhz kit work well? Or is putting more RAM (since I have 16GB now) not that good of an idea.

Please help!

I updated my BIOS to 1.30 and the stability overall has improved; I'm running the GPUs in Gen 3 mode as well.
