Ah I see. This was/is my first Asrock/AM3+ MB. It has done wonderfully for my Heka 720BE, not so sure yet about the FX chips. Sorry to hear about your Extreme-9. I just had a scare myself. I was doing IBT at 4.6 with only 1.4v and Temps under 60C and it froze. After I turned the power off and then back on, my MB was stuck with debug LED "36" (CPU Post-Memory Initialization. System Management Mode "SMM"). I was crapping my pants. I used the "Clr-Cmos" button in the back, and got in to the bios. Then after I set bios settings, save and exit, it would load setup defaults upon restart. I was like holy cow.. I cleared the C-mos again and had same issue. So I hit F1 instead of F2 to "save/accept and continue, then it loaded windows in IDE mode. Then I rebooted and loaded one of my profiles from bios, and I'm finally back the way I was.
I was not able to save bios setting and boot windows until I had booted in to windows with setup-defaults first.
Scared the heck out of me.Edited by pshootr - 1/3/15 at 10:46pm
