When you getting pimp slapped by a former part of your company, out of the Price/Performance Midrange market.

ASROCK are nothing less than shocking when it comes to compatibility....
Their boards are ridiculous and are an obvious spin off the ASUS line, except using cheap components.
I test boards and components for a living and this whole ASRock has stepped up its game buisness? is just plain rubbish.
Theyre boards are cheap and always will be. Most RAM isn't even compatible with their boards let alone anything above 2200mhz yet they state that they can do 2800mhz+
Weve had 100's of ASRock board Returns from customers complaining about their cheap ASRock boards.
Just because ASRock sell, doesn't mean that theyre products are good.
BTW... One of ASUS' founders is actually the head chairman of ASRock. The company was made on purpose to milk the market and kinda under quote other leading board makers like gigabyte. ASUS and ASRock were always one. ASUS just did the dodgy.
ASRock now think that their boards come close to HIGH-END and are trying to charge premium $.....i'll say from experience and RMA's/Returns etc... that the asrock boards are rubbish.
/rant
EDIT: Show me anyone with an ASRock board that has anything above 2200mhz RAM frequency using the multiplier or XMP..... BET U CANT.

I can literally verify all of this, using specified memory and I can't even run at stock speeds, numerous bios errors, poor voltage control with insane vdroop. Asus boards using crappy software and cheap parts. If I had known these issues I would have gone and bought a sabertooth for $15 more in a heart beat like I had wanted to but thought asrock was fine. Half the features on this board don't even work completely.
post #174 of 264
With my ASRock board, I have set no LLC, the VDroop is .010v+/-

I have 2 RAM kits, some old XMS3 1600mhz and some average Kingston Hyper X also at 1600mhz. No issues.

The UEFI is just amazing, never had an issues, gives many options for setting VCore and just overall very nice.

The Price/Performance was amazing. Apart from M-Sata the Gigabyte competitor was $30 more.

good test of BIOS solidness is to try running memory at 2400MHz either rated XMP or overclocked ...
I like your vdroop, pretty neat though!

My Z77 Fatal1ty pro has far succeeded my older asus p67 pro motherboard which was only able to hold a 4.8ghz overclock on the same cpu.

I will be sticking with asrock from now on, They have come a very long way in the last two years, things can only get better tongue.gif
