asrock z77 extreme4-m throttling and shutdown

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just bought this motherboard, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-157-294&SortField=1&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo


Came from a p8z77-m pro from Asus which had a myriad of issues.
On the ASUS board I had horrendous issues: dpc latency spikes, the system took several times to boot properly, keyboard wasn't detect, usb ports had a lot of issues, etc.
However, on this asrock board things are not much better.

I don't have any dpc latency problems thankfully.
Thing is, when I run cudaminer on my 2nd gtx 670, and then launch a video game on my first, the computer just reboots.
Temps on all the gpus are fine, and so is the cpu temp.
I did not have this problem on the p8z77-m pro.

Next, at a measly 4.4ghz and 1.44volts(my 2600k is quite old and needs that voltage, trust me it won't boot at 1.3 volts on any motherboard (I've tried 3)
The cpu bounces back from 4.4 ghz to 3.4 ghz on prime95, and stays at 3.4ghz most of the time.

The motherboard heatsink temperature was 55c. Now, I do not know if this is the problem because on the old nforce boards (680i) I saw people with temperatures of 80c and they still worked fine.


Any ideas why it would:
1] Reboot when both gpu's are loaded.
2] Throttle the cpu on load. (Cpu gets to 80c, but that is not hot enough to throttle)
3] When I reboot from Windows, I get a black screen. If I reboot before Windows, the system restarts normally. However, if I am inside Windows and hit restart and then when Windows shuts off and where I should see my post screen, I just have a black screen.

The power supply is a 7 year old thermaltake 750 watt toughpower, but it worked just fine on the p8z77-m pro, so I do not think it is the issue. I swapped motherboards yesterday.

Well I fixed the throttling issue. I put an 80mm fan directly ontop of the vrm... lol.

Yea, that board has terrible VRM and needs active cooling.

Anyone have any ideas why it won't shutdown?

Reboot issue is a software one so that can be ignored. Any way to cool the vrms better? With an 80mm fan that is very loud even at 40%, it throttles. Even at 100% it throttles but a lot less.

It's so incredibly loud, you can hear a room away.

Is the gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H better? This motherboard seems like garbage to me...

Dude, I have your exact cpu+mobo setup- 2600k and z77 extreme4-m. I had no clue how poorly this board overclocks.

Well I just noticed someone else with an ASRock z77 Extreme-M fixed the exact same throttling issue I have. They placed a fan right on top of the VRMs.

I fixed this issue by just buying the asrock z77 fatal1ty professional-m

I can't stress enough how much of a better board that is.

Doesn't turn off in SLI.

Overclocks like a champ with no additional cooling.

Worked the first boot, way more bios options, better build quality

Even a mouse port that lets me overclock it in windows 8.1

I have a razer salmosa pro, which does not have a polling rate changer, and in Windows 8/8.1 the hidusb trick does not work, but this does.


Just return the asrock z77 extreme4-m, it is TOTAL garbage.
