ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 22

My Conclusion for the ASRock Extreme11:

- The SB fan is too loud
- The G.Skill 2133 MHz CL9 memory freezes
- The bios is wrong

etc.

If I had stayed only in my Asus Rampage IV

I have been very patient with this build with the Extreme 11. Agreed with everything you stated.

What I had done to address the fan issue is to add a 160mm fan right in front of the SB. I have a Cosmo II as well so it should be easy for you to do so. hehe

I can't get 8x4GB of g skill 2133 CL9 to work properly. I can run Prime95 for 6 hours with 4.4 @ 2133. But Intel Burn Test shows only 50Gflops with such ram speed. I set it to 1600 with CL 8-10-9-27-128tRFC-2TCR. Get at least 100+ Gflops instead of 50Gflops running IBT.

The BIOS... it is why I'm debating if I should bother upgrading to Win8 yet.

Anyone out there running Win8 x64 Pro with BIOS 1.4?

Oh one more issue: my boot time would be 2minutes 15seconds with the LSI chip enabled/boot disabled in BIOS. Boot time would decrease to 30 seconds the moment I disable the LSI chip. Anyone having the same issue?

It's not clear from the posts above... is 1.70 still no good?
post #214 of 1199
Yes, I have the same problem when booting.
The time is too long.

Likewise.

I'd also add the lackluster onboard RAID controller that over-promised and under-delivered.

I'd also expand the specific memory freeze to include all memory that one attempts to overclock in pretty much any way that ASRock advertises the board can. 2400? I don't think so, not even with just 4 sticks of the top-rated recommended memory for the board on their website.

I'd also add that putting a video card in slot 5 neatly covers the Recon3D onboard sound chip, presumably causing it to overheat and shut down. Mine disappears from the device manager about once every two days.

Elements of the board are great. As a whole, though, it's a very expensive disappointment.

By the way, my fan started buzzing again, even without the sticker. The bearings must be bad.

Yes I am. No problems here.

IF YOU GO INTO THE BIOS AND UNDER '' OVERCLOCKING'' SWITCH THE MEMORY TO ''X.M.P MODE'' AND YOU WILL GET THE MEMORY TO RUN AT THE RATED SPEEDS AND YOUR SYSTEM WILL BE RUNNING NORMAL. SOME PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THIS. I SURE DID NOT WHEN I BUILT MY FIRST PC.... AND FOR THE RECORD, THE X79 EXTEREME 11 IS VERY CAPABLE OF RUNNING RAM AT 2400 MHZ NOT SURE ABOUT MEMORY OVER 2400 MHZ THOUGH....EVEN THOUGH ASROCK CLAIMS IT CAN RUN OVERCLOCKED MEMORY 2500MHZ+?.......NOT SURE ABOUT THAT.
JUST SWITCH IT TO X.M.P. PROFILE AND ALL YOUR TROUBLES WILL GO AWAY.thumb.gif

Even then freezes the memory, the system is still not normal.

Great Board after 15 years computer science doh.gif

DID YOU GO INTO THE BIOS AND GO TO THE SECTION THAT SAYS X.M.P. MODE? ALSO WHICH SLOTS ON THE MOTHERBOARD DID YOU PUT YOUR MEMORY DIMS IN? IF YOU HAVE 2 THEN YOU WILL WANT TO PUT THEM IN THE 1ST MEMORY SLOT ON THE LEFT (NEXT TO THE REAR I/O SECTION) AND THEN THE SECOND MEMORY DIM IN THE 3RD SLOT.

TELL ME HOW MANY STICKS OF MEMORY YOU ARE USING.

It's nice that you're trying to be helpful, but most of us know very well about switching the memory profiles and tweaking the timings. This board does not handle high memory speeds as well as it was advertised to, no matter what profile you use.

If you fill all 8 slots, it won't even go over 1866, never mind 2133 or 2400. ASRock's web page claims you can run 8 sticks at 2400+ if you use the memory they suggest. I have tried to run the exact memory they suggest and it won't go over 1866 with 8 slots. The advertising just isn't true.
