Made no difference, just restarted, temps still high and 1.384V.

Which program do i trust, do i need to rma this board? Seems like the board has untrusted readings.

The VID that CoreTemp shows does not directly translate to voltage like it did with older CPU's.

Trust the value from CPUZ. Also suggest using latest version of HWInfo for checking what voltages the VRM supply to the CPU. In my case it is always 0.01V above what is specified in the BIOS (but that is probably just a rounding effect).

Your board behaves just like mine, so I dont think anything is wrong, except for that vcore (1.205) making the board go into offset mode. Surely this is fixable in BIOS, and not hardware related.

Have you tried to see if this happens on other voltages? Perhaps 1.195V?

NickShih: What is the material of the water cooling bits? Copper/brass or aluminium?

Every other voltage no problems just that damn 1.205v!
I shall update HWinfo!

It is strange ....I checked the bios source code . 1.205v is posting the correct value . I also have no problem here . I just tried 3 pcs mobo .

I dont think it is hardware issue related . I will try to figure out the problem .

The vcore from hardware monitor of formula drive is fine . U can read from it . CPUZ get vcore from super IO . So the value is also correct .

Can u removed the battery for 5 min ?

It will clear whole PCH setting completed

Did that, made no difference i then also pressed the CLR CMOS button on the Motherboard I/O Plate.
Still the same frown.gif

Thanks smile.gif

Just a reminder that I get exactly the same behavior on my board when setting the vcore to 1.205V (fixed).

From HWInfo I can also see the VRM output is jumping, as if it is in offset mode.

Anyway, gonna keep reading. debating atm on getting this over the weekend

Hey there,

Honestly, thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to write me in a PM to help me make sense of the problem. I truly appreciate it!

As far as diagnosing the board goes: I think I pretty much did all I could. I ran it as a barebones setup with cpu/ram/power only, and it still wouldn't post. I tried 3 different types of RAM in it, and I did remove the battery/cleared CMOS several times. I could get it to run every once in a while, but it was very intermittent. I've just come to the conclusion that it was defective. I'm not sure how else I could have diagnosed it, or what I could have done differently. I got an RMA on it and I'm sending it off today. Apparently, the person on the phone that told me ASRock takes 2 months to RMA didn't really know what they were talking about. I bought it through Newegg. They issued an RMA to exchange it immediately.

I have never heard ANYTHING negative about this board. I still can't fault it, because when it was up and running, it was amazing. Defects happen, and I think I just had bad luck this time. It's really no big deal. I'm sorry if my issues have dissuaded anyone from being interested in this MB. I'm still confident in it, for sure!
