Does anyone have a quick and dirty or a good guide to overclocking a 4790k on a asrock extreme4 motherboard? I got my system up and running with the 1.80 bios. I just ordered a noctua nh-d14 for my cpu and I am a bit lost on how to go about oc'ing this thing. Using the noctua thermal paste or AS5 (have both). Any good guides out there? I enabled the multicore enhancement setting in the bios and have been running with no problems @ 4400mhz on the stock cooler 24/7. Also is it worth delidding the 4790k? I know I will void my warranty. I am not looking for crazy overclocks just something maybe 4.6 or 4.7. Thanks for the help! smile.gifsmile.gif

There are minor differences between the BIOS of different vendors so checkout any Z87Z97 Overclocking Youtube Videos or guides.

Here is a nice guide from this forum http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics

I'd really like to get you detailed opinion on this board when you have the time too.
I love the board no stability issues or bugs at all that I have encountered. Not a fan of the gold but my rig is a mess of colors. I used a splitter to have enough for all my fans and it bought me enough slack to run all the cabling behind as I wanted.

Not sure if this forum is dead or not, I was wondering if anyone could help me with my weird problem. Sometimes booting up, it will just turn on for a second, then turn off for a second, then turn on for a second. Repeat. At this point, I have to hold the power button to force it off, then turn off the PSU with its main switch. Then turn it back on, and then it boots normal. Not sure if its a memory issue, or PSU issue, or what. I am using Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3-2400 (currently running it at 2100), PSU is a one year old AX1200. Probably started maybe 6 months ago. May other thought it has to do with a BIOS update that I did at that time. I have P1.80 installed. Has anyone else experienced this?

Guess this is a dead thread or not many people are using this board. I was also experiencing random start-ups. I may have solved one problem. The on,off,on,off issue seems to be a stuck power switch on the chassis. I unplugged the chassis power switch for a few days, and just turned it on with the on-board. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I found it had turned itself on last night. Argh! Guess its back to square one.

Edit: the spontaneous turning on my be a Wake on Alarm feature. I turned that off, so it seems to be ok in that respect. Its stil turning on and off rapidly trying to start it up. Talked to AsRock and they want me to RMA it.

I know it's quite an old thread but I have a question about this motherboard.
Is this motherboard able to control 3-pin fans with voltage regulation? Or is it possible to control only PWM fans? thank!

I'll look to see if that is an option. I don't remember seeing that.
