Just saw you have 16gb. I would up the voltage on the system agent / memory controller

Any chance you can post a screen of your bios settings?

Also where would I find the sys agent/mem controller voltages, and what would be a good aprox value to try or range. Thanks

44x cpu and 39 on the cache crashes bsod whea on boot with everything else on auto.

Fixed voltage for cpu at 1.25 boots and runs prime for about 30 before crashing. Cpuz read voltage as just under .900 full load at 4400mhz

1.275 same thing temps hit 90 too

Gonna keep trying other things

Have you tried the ASRock presets for 4.4 and 4.6?

Yea tried 4.6/4.4/4.2, all crash or do not boot. 4.0 preset was only one that's stable

Try the 4.4Ghz preset and just start raising the vcore one notch each time

Ok I found something here...

part of the issue is terminology. There are a ton of voltage related settings, but no vcore, they must call it something else. The CPU override voltage and cpu cache override voltage are 1.270 using the preset 4.4ghz.

As I noticed prior, CPU-Z seems to report a .8xx-.9xx voltage regardless of what I set those to. So my guess is that the cpu isn't getting the voltage it needs.

I tried using the Offset voltage setting (under Voltage configuration) and started at .02. I noticed when booting with the 4.4 profile and that setting cpuz reported my voltage over .9xx. I went in increments upto .120 and noticed the CPUz voltage increase, as well as how long prime would run before crash. I think this supports my theory that the cpu isn't getting the 1.27 voltage set via the other settings.

Lastly, I have found numerous topics via google that seem to point to this motherboard or series of boards from asrock having issues with voltage. Many other people reporting what I noticed, setting voltage to 1.2 or higher and seeing .8xx-.9xx in windows.

At this point I am suspecting the motherboard is the culprit here. I am highly considering exchanging it for a msi/gigabyt/asus mb of a comparable price.

If anyone with an asrock z87 board (I assume they mostly have the same bios options) can recommend specific settings using the same terms that the bios does, ill give it a whirl, otherwise I am leaning towards getting a different brand

You need this CPUZ to read the voltages correctly

cpu-z_1.64.2.zip 1876k .zip file

And i dont think its the board as my Extreme 6 is running perfectly. Youre using the newest bios right? The Z77's had cheap VRM's, The Z87's have a completely new setup.

Ill try the CPU-Z you linked. Just got Newegg to approve a rma for a refund. I have ~14 days to make up my mind. To be honest compared this to the MSI z87-G45 and really like the G45 layout and UEFI much more. They are the same price and this is the second asrock board I have had issues with (though I had used a third in a great build without issues for a basic computer). If the MSI board has trouble with OC then I know its just me or my CPU.

Stay Puft can you screen cap your bios settings for me? Id like to see what settings your using specifically.
