That's good to know, I wasn't aware of that little factoid. +1 thumb.gif

Yes, return it.
This board will probably not hold a 5ghz o/c while folding 24/7

I have the Extreme4-m and the cpu power supply section overheats, then the board throttles the cpu.
I measured the temps with a laser gun and they reach 75C on CPU VRM heatsink.

The peak OC I can run with constant max load and without throttling is about 4.4G @ 1.17V.
The board can do 5GHz but with IBT running, it will throttle to 3.5ghz and back because of vrm temps. CPU temps are not the problem (<70C).


Get something with more power phases, it's worth to pay a bit more.

Also the Extreme4 runs on analog power, despite Asrock advertising it as digital. Other boards might allow you to run 5GHz with less volts which is good for both your cpu and the mobo.

Get something with more power phases, it's really worth to pay a bit more.

I would say return it and get a gigabyte z77x ud3h.
http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-CrossFireX-NVIDIA-Motherboard-GA-Z77X-D3H/dp/B007R21KBC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1360365702&sr=8-4&keywords=gigabyte+z77
Check this,gigabyte z77x ud3h is only $134 in amazon.
