If you could find a M5A99FX EVO 2.0, it's been getting really good results and is reasonably priced as well. (It's almost identical to the PRO version.)

it's even more expensive than my ivybridge board frown.gif (dunno how it's priced elsewhere)
they got everything I want in stock. asrock extreme 4 it is then. please encourage/stop me from buying this board. TIA

Oh I was referring to the M5A99FX EVO 2.0. This one you posted is the PRO version which is more expensive.
The only thing that would deter me from getting the Asrock board is that the LLC works backwards.
Low ='s Ultra or something like that, but not really a deal breaker.

another observations multiplier and vcore goes down when having a cpu load only, it doesn't drop when at idle

How is ur FX Pro R2.0 holding up? Is it really a poor man's Saber?
I mean, are u able to get at least 4.8Ghz stable on ur 8350?
* Hopes u hit 5Ghz +

Have you tried putting more vcore on and see if it still happens?

Another thing are temps are getting too high somewhere like someone else said and its downclocking to compensate. Though you say its only 50+oC(can't remember exact)

If that doesn't solve it, It could be your board, though im not experienced enough to say this with any conviction.


i tried to ramp up the vcore two more ticks, 55 deg is the average temp at prime95,


another things is it doesn't downclock when im at idle,

8+1 power phase. about 5USD cheaper than the extreme 4. what do you guys say? I'm planning to buy the system in a few hours
Asrock Extreme 4

dun care about features. what I want is OC performance. anything lower than 4.5ghz I would consider a failure (a reasonable expectation right?)

I'm not sure 4.50 is reasonable yet. On that ASRock board you linked, it took me 1.500V to get stable even at 4.30.

then surely your board is getting hot somewhere and its downclocking. This is the only reason i can think of, though ive not been overclocking long but ive read enough to get by lol.

Maybe some of the others will know but im sorry to say im stumped. rolleyes.gif

Bios updated to latest version?

Any asrock users there? that knows why my oc automatically drop multiplier when running prime 95 to x7? and when i turned on the cool and quiet and reset all the bios settings to default it seems that cool and quiet is not working its not downclocking anymore??

You should install HWMonitor. I believe for that board TMP2 is stil the VRM temps. It really sounds like the VRM Protection is kicking in. (to stop them from burning up it throttles the CPU)

The Sabertooth is a better board:
- 8 + 2 Digi VRM control vs 6 + 2 Digi
- Ceramix on the Board Heatsinks

The best I've done so far on Air is, 4.5Ghz IBT Stable @ 52 Celsius 1.356v. Gertruud has the EVO version (1 step down), which he's been getting really good results on with Air, 4.7 I believe.

Once I get the hang of all the settings on this board, I have enough headroom (voltage and temps wise) to maybe sit at 4.8Ghz on Air. (IBT temps would probably be over 62 C though)

So IMO - The M5A99FX EVO 2.0 is the poor mans Sabertooth, overclock wise, as the PRO version has nothing more to offer than the EVO in that regard.
