Heh, figures. I just flashed mine last week. Oh well, if I run into any issues I guess I'll reflash. Main reason for flashing in the first place was to try to fix my stuck clock, which I'm happy to say is working.

I would think twice about it. I am having a hard time recovering my stable overclock, even flashing back to 1301.

There is a new BIOS feature- you can disable the High Precision Event Timer.

I ran into a few issues installing Win 8 from usb until I spotted that little button in bios that forces it to boot from a certain device. I love that button now. Honestly if it were me and I was installing from USB and ran into issues while installing drivers on a fresh install, I would start over. It installs quick, and once you get it installed the way you want image it.
updating on my issue:

I am going to assume it was a driver issue with the video card. I got all hardware drivers updated and haven't had a problem since. went ahead and updated windows, setup my preferences and optimizations, and created a system image and a repair disc. Now, time to start downloading some stressing programs, monitors, start playing around in bios, and having a little fun with overclocking. Hopefully I'll have a reason to delid as I already purchased CLU and Gelid GC Extreme.

Intel LAN Driver 72,28 MBytes and Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Driver 173,69 MBytes What's the difference, which is better, do I need both?

Not that there's any ISPs I can think of where you could take full advantage, but I would go with the Gigabit Ethernet Driver. That's the controller chip the ethernet port has, and in a properly set up network you will notice a difference, even on a 15MB connection (it sucks, but the internet options where I live suck in general) I saw a jump from an average of 1.3-1.5MB/s downloads to 1.8-2.1 MB/s on my new system. I'm sure a little of that could be the difference in processors (FX-8120 -> i5-4670K), but I'm thinking that the ethernet port does play a healthy role in it all.

FYI, it was taking to much time and more voltage to get a stable overclock with 1402. What was stable before no longer was. I ended up reverting back a version and back to my previous stable settings, even though I wanted to give disabling the HPET a try on this processor. Not worth it.

Hi all


do you think i will have better audio quality from 100$ external sound card ( Asus Xonar DX for example ) than the Asus Vi Hero on-board (8-Channel ROG SupremeFX Audio Codec (ALC1150))

My headset are Sennheiser PC 360 and my applications is mainly ( Games - Movies )

Thanks

Hey, I just installed a 4770k / hero mobo yesterday. I'm coming over from a FX8320/990FXA-UD5.

I have a question, these cpu show up as both CPU, and core temps, I'm not used to this. What should I be watching out for? As in, what is a max safe core temp, and CPU temp? I've seen any where from 72 to 95c suggested. Also, like I said, are they talking about CPU or core? I've noticed the core temps get above the CPU temps often.
