They apparently do. Or someone that consistently leaks drivers, etc, to them. I would not be surprised if Intel does that on purpose, to give them a chance to be used out in the "wild".

Station-Drivers always have the beta (alpha too?) IRST drivers and OROMs before anyone else. IMO, many people don't realize those drivers are beta versions.

Intel has removed official IRST drivers occasionally due to issues (at least one in the 11.x and 12.x versions, IIRC 11.6 and 12.6 were released and later removed.) Also, as I'm sure you know, the official versions have a bug list in their Readme. I tend to stay away from the new IRST versions on Station-Drivers now, simple due to Intel's history of IRST problems. It is true that many people (I have too) use those drivers all the time and don't have problems... or do they?

BTW Fernando, I like your RAID and UEFI/BIOS modding site very much. I've used the AMI modding tools with great results. Nothing quite like it on the Internet, thanks and great job. thumb.gif

Also, how do you like the ASRock Z97 Extreme 6 board? Are you looking forward to X99 with ten Intel SATA III ports? I wonder what the RAID support will be on X99, meaning all ten SATA ports available for RAID. The other big question, will they use RSTe with X99, like they did with X79? The M.2 and SATA Express support on mother boards will also be important IMO.

According to my experience Station-Drivers do present much newer and mostly better Intel RST/RSTe drivers than Intel itself.

Until now I am quite satisfied with my new ASRock Z97 Extreme6 board.

Not really. I don't need 10 SATA ports for doing my work.

I am pretty sure, that the Intel RSTe drivers and OROM versions v4.x.x.xxxx are already designed for the upcoming X99 chipsets.

The Ultra M.2 support was the main reason why I bought the ASRock Z97 Extreme6. Now I am hoping for a BIOS, which will give the available and upcoming Ultra M.2 SSDs the technically possible performance.

Well i'm very happy with it. get my i7 4770k on it stable at 4,5GHz with 1,29V (unbeheaded). Only think what craped me out was the bios update 1.2 to 1.3 i have my RAM also overclocked and the board didn't booted. After turning the switch to go into the 1.2 Bios reset the oc and update the Bios (1) to 1.3 all was ok. Also oc ist fully stable. Need a better cooler and for sure a Samaung XP941 with option ROM. thumb.gif

Not related to the Extreme 6 but the little brother Extreme 4 sucks nuts, since it has the last PCIe bound on the cpu and not on the PCH. This is a Thing Asrock have to eleminate on future Board. Nobody wants a board sticking in a Sound card and get 8x GPU!

The X99 OC Formula looks pretty ham. But i don't need it. Also it will be freaking expensive with DDR4 and a 6/8 core CPU + water cooling.

Die 12 VRM-Phasen können dem Prozessor laut eigenen Angaben bis zu 1.300 Watt an Leistung liefert – für Normalanwender natürlich stark übertrieben, mit Flüssigstickstoff und Kernspannungen von über 2 Volt kann man sich allerdings schon mal kurzfristig der 1.000er-Marke nähern.
in english: The 12 Phase VRM could manage by own quote 1300 Watt of power - for normal users this will be much over the tip, with LN2 and Vcore above 2V you may could reach in peak the 1kW mark.

I just installed BIOS 1.40 on my Z97 Extreme6 from ASRock and the latest ASMedia USB 3.0 driver is no longer working (v1.16.18.16034), only the previous versions are working (eg: v1.16.16.0 and v1.16.15.0), for now I'm using the standard Microsoft drivers.

I have discovered a problem with my Z97 Extreme 6 just today. I do not have USB2.0 compatibility on ASMedia's rear USB ports! I have tried to connect my printer and it does not work. It shows it offline. I have also plugged in both of them (two) rear ports a USB2.0 stick and it does not work. When I plug in a USB3.0 stick it works fine. I have the latest ASMedia USB drivers, specifically 1.16.18.1, and the latest BIOS -reflashed it today- 1.40. I have also tried with ASMedia's USB drivers from ASRock's site, still USB2.0 does not work on those two rear ports.

Does anyone know a solution to this, please? How can I see the firmware of the ASMedia USB controller and how can I update it, if possible?

Looking forward to some help, thank you. It is kind of urgent because I have two devices I cannot use due to this.

I could do that for you, but what are those?

EDIT:
I've installed LatencyMon for about 3 minutes, idle, here are the results. I don't know how these programs are used.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here's DPC Latency Checker, as well

I repeat, first time I use these, I don't know how they should be used.

EDIT (again)
Well, I have left that DPC Latency Checker program open just out of curiosity, and I continued browsing, checking my mails, using Skype and doing some other tasks. Here is what it's showing now: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ah! a nVidia user I see. Could you run LatencyMon and go to the driver tab and sort by "Highest execution"? Thanks
