Did you reset to stock clocks/ volts before the new install?

Yes, 33c is reasonable.

If you are refering to him saying he won't touch another ASUS board while he has an ASrock, implying that ASrock is owned by ASUStek, you are wrong.
While ASrock was indeed owned by ASUStek in the past, they've been independent for a while now (there are rumors that Asustek is actually making an offer to buy ASrock back into their fold, but they haven't announced anything yet that I know of).


"ASRock actually started out as an Asus subsidiary. According to a Taipei Times story from 2007, ASRock was established in 2002, "targeting entry-level products to avoid competition with its parent company." As I understand it, ASRock was subsequently spun off, along with Asus' manufacturing operations, into Pegatron. ASRock still offers cheap budget motherboards, but its lineup also includes decked-out high-end offerings with lofty price tags. Example: the Z77 Extreme9, which sells for a whopping $349.99 at Newegg."

Asus Sabertooth X79 had epic fail written all over it.... then when Newegg tried to squirm away from honoring their warranty, I reported them to the BBB. Then when that happened they finally grew up and gave me a refund with which I bought my ASRock board. At least on this board, you can actually install windows to an SSD and it doesnt crash the GPU every 5 minutes

Again, it just tells me you got a bad board, you had a headache with newegg's RMA. But you had a bad experience with one board, I understand switching brands, my post wasn't about that.

Its not just me.... I have a sneakin suspicion newegg is up to no good. When I finally got my RMA put through for the board, I sent it back..... then they phoned me saying I bent the pins in the socket which was false... thats when the whole BBB fiasco happened and I had to fight with them. No 2 weeks later, someone else wrote a review for that exact board saying they had recieved a board with bent pins, and newegg told THAT OTHER CUSTOMER that THEY had bent the pins and it had nothing to do with newegg... now I go on newegg and see more reviews for that board.... and a few more others are saying that they recieved that board from newegg with bent pins, and that newegg is accusing them of sending back that mobo with bent pins.... sorry but something isnt right with that company.... anyway.... I have installed my OS, disk image created.... If I lower my voltage in bios any lower then offset .130V, I get a BSOD MACHINE_CHECK_EXEMPTION. But so far I havent had any random freezes with the sound stuttering................................ YET

1.342 Vcore (actual, measured; not set, if dynamic). Mine is stable, fully loaded, at this Vcore, on an ASUS P9X79 WS board.

I have a different board then you. Im having to offset .130V to avoid a MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION BSOD
post #110 of 116
What measured Vcore are you using then? The 1.44V you mentioned last is way high for 4.6GHz. 1.35V measured should be plenty. If you need your offset, fair enough, but try dropping your main setting down then to bring down the measured Vcore. In my opinion, for a 24/7 OC, you should avoid going over 1.4V.

It's too bad about your experience with ASUS. They're generally regarded as one of the best MB manufacturers, and I know my P9X79 WS has worked flawlessly since day one.
