AWESOME!

Thank you UKYO. It is very nice to get the 30 seconds boot time back with Windows 8. Saved me time from re-installing Windows 7 to test things out with the LSI chip enabled.

I am only disappointed by the ASRock X79 Extreme 11 board.

Don't give up yet totalflow.

I was kinda upset but am happier now. I have a feeling that the mobo is too new to work well in Windows 7. It feels like I got a different machine with Windows 8 running. So my assumption is that the new drivers allow the mobo to work better with Windows 8. I still wonder why I had the long pause in Win7 boot up with the LSI chip enabled. But hey, issue is gone now (fingers crossed) with Windows 8. I suspect that the new LSI firmware + driver work better in Win8 or it is as simple as reinstalling the OS cleared some conflicts... who knows. Hardware wise the Extreme 11 is a nice piece of board for the $$. I would have to pay more $ to get an Asus Rampage whatever + LSI RADI card + sound card compared to getting the Extreme 11. Issue is it takes a lot of time (3 months already) to sort things out on this board compared to all my other builds (couple days at max), which is something I like to do for fun/the challenges (i know it sounds strange) I don't think this board is for any beginners or ppl who do not have time/patience to make adjustments on their setups. Given enough time the mobo should work better with future driver/firmware releases.

Stupid way to look at the situation here is bad? thing happens for good reasons, the heat coming from the SB and VRM give me the excuse to look into building an actual water loop... my gf does not like that idea at all lol

Now talking about ASRock, I think they can do a better job to test their software components out before posting for download. Just tested the "ASRock Restart to UEFI" tool... all i get is a big fat "this platform is not supported" message (tried to run it elevated), I suspect I have to upgrade from BIOS 1.40 to 1.7 for it to work properly? Anyone?

Also, ASRock should not have posted the supported RAM list as most people would expect to simply load the XMP Profile and be done with it for any RAM found on that list. Can't say for sure but it looks like they tried to pull a fast one on the buyers when it is not as simple as loading the XMP profile for things to work properly....

Anyway, at the end of the day I have to say thank you to everybody here as this is the place that gives me ideas when I was about to give up! lol

enough fiddling with the computer... gonna play some Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 tongue.gif

peace,
jack

Jackk hello ^_^. You are very welcome biggrin.gif I am just happy you managed to resolve all the issues with the Extreme 11. thumb.gif Yes you do have to update your bios from 1.40 to 1.70 I actually downloaded to 1.70 last week and even though I am currently running Windows 7 The '' Restart to UEFI'' is fine though it does not function on Windows 7. It is only optimized for Windows 8. The reason why I downloaded it on Windows 7 is because I will install Windows 8 next week. So I kind of wanted to prepare a tiny bit in advanced biggrin.gif So yes. Please install Bios 1.70 and you will be able to boot into the UEFI BIOS when you need to. ANOTHER PROBLEM '' SOLVED'' thumb.gif
Yes I also agree. I also believe as the drivers mature for Windows 8 for the extreme 11 the motherboard will begin to shine thumb.gif
Also I believe it was made to utilize the best hardware on it for a beast of a machine. devil.gifdevil.gifdevil-smiley-019.gif

P.S. over the course of the next couple of months I will finally start to post the start up pictures of my Rig in development. Yay!! .....wink.gif I currently have the extreme 11 running in my Caselabs STH10. I also plan to add a pedestal and 120 cm Top with radiator bracket for it. I am planning the total radiator count as 6-7 RADS?....rolleyes.gif I am still thinking about how I want my loop to be configured at the moment rolleyes.gif....Also I will be thinking about going for an IWAKI pump instead of 2 koolance D5 Strongs that I had originally planned. With all those rads I will need monster pumping power:) All my fittings will be BITSPOWER. Fans .... I have not thought of yet but I have been comparing performance with noise....Reservoir will be EK 250 That...may...change.....not sure yet....waterblock possiblly EK??.....I also plan to max out the memory to 64GB and the cpu I will wait for the i7 3970X biggrin.gif By summers end 2013 I plan to complete my first drool.gifdrool.gif GODLY EXTREME DEEP HARDCORE DOUBLE OVERKILL WATERLOOP biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifdevil.gifdevil.gifdevil-smiley-019.gifdevil.gifdevil.gifdevil.gifdevilsmiley.gifdevil-smiley-019.gifdevil.gif
On the GPU side I am looking at 2 way SLI. Soundcard I am looking at the Xonar STX. That may also change to the Essence One..... We shall see....rolleyes.gifsmile.gif I am also planning a Raid array of 4 or 6 rolleyes.gif for the LSI controller. SSDs of course devil.gif .
Storage will probally be
WD 3TB RED's?....Or....??................
Currently I am running my Extreme 11 on a Lepa 1600 watt. While it is an nice power supply the cables on it are ''insanely'' short and stiff wha-smiley.png I am seriously looking at the Corsair 1200i for 2 factors.

Hello I have just purchased this motherboard and I have a big problem with the LSI controller. When I power on the system the LSI BIOS tells me that my raid0 is in "Inactive/Optimal" state and I must enter the config and manually activate it, otherwise the raid doesn't appear even on the UEFI menu. This doesn't happen when I do reboots.

On every post I also got "Boot room successfully installed" from the controller. I wonder if this is normal too...

I have 4x samsung 830 256GB SSDs and the latests bios to date (1.70). These drives are brand new.

The data integrity is fine, I have not seen any crashes or disk errors so far so I don't understand why the controller does this stuff, as I understand this should happen only in the case of changing the sata ports or something like that.

Regards.

I think the LSI "boot" option has to be enabled in the UEFI BIOS for the "Boot room successfully installed" screen to show. You can simply disable the LSI Boot option in the UEFS BIOS if you don't use any of the drives connected to the LSI ports as boot drives. I don't even see any screen from the LSI chip after POST because I have the LSI Boot option disabled.

hope ths helps,

Hi,

for windows 7 is still better the bios version 1.40?

regards

Ugo

The Board resells, because it has too many mistakes.

God luck ASRock.
post #238 of 1199
For the record...I still love my Extreme11. You can pick at any board out there and have some issues with it. But there is no other board available that has this feature set. I'll be starting a second build with another Extreme11 as soon as I'm done with current build.

I've been paying attention to this thread for a while since I'm seriously considering this board for a workstation rig and must first and foremost thank you all for having so much patience with these boards, and especially for posting such detailed answers about what you're doing to troubleshoot and what your results are. It really helps to be able to follow each of your processes.

 

I'm thinking of buying 8x4GB sticks of 2133-rated Corsair Dominator Platinum for the build, has anyone tried this board with those sticks, and if so, with what results?

post #240 of 1199
You'll have much more luck if you get 4X8GB sticks if you really want to run it at that frequency. Not sure if they have a Platinum 8GB stick yet...but if not, they have some options in the Dominator GT line. I succesfully got my Dominator GT's (rated at 1,866MHz) to run at 2,133MHz when I juiced the voltage a little bit. So you won't have a problem reaching 2,133 with only 4 sticks. But with 8 sticks? Not sure you'll be able to pull that off.
