The ASUS/ASrock P55 and X58 Club & Discussion(Under construction) - Page 22

post #211 of 329
I have just discovered that the stock cooler of the 860 is useless even without any OC. Even with the Antec 900 Two at full fan speed OCCT drives up the core temperature to 80 degrees celsius in about 5 minutes.

Can someone recommend a good CPU cooler that does not (or just a little bit) reach over the RAM modules of the AsRock P55 Extreme? I'd like to keep my RAM cooler now that I have it.

After doing a bit of a search I guess the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus would not be a bad choice.

I've heard good things from that particular cooler.

I, myself, am looking at something "stronger" - maybe the Thermalright X-Venomous or Corsair H50.

The thing that kind of stinks about the P55 Extreme is that it is too dang crowded around the CPU socket. With a video card in the first PCI-E slot, it is within millimeters of my CPU cooler.

my DK fits just fine on mine. i dont know the dimensions of a p55 though :/ i would check out configs of people who have the same mobo here and on other forums.

This was ASRock's response to my downclocking issue with my X3440:

Dear ASrock Costumer,
At the moment you decide to OC using under the BIOS manually or by setting up OC Tweaker increasing the speed of the CPU automatically ..
CPU Thermal Throttling gets enabled and grey oout to protect mecanically your cpu for any overheating can cause your cpu to burn.
If you have plans to OC ,please considered to use a better power suppy as well cpu's fan to control the temperature.

Okay...

Okay...
In response to my previous post, I found out that my mosfets were overheating and thus causing the throttling.

So to those who are overclocking, keep those heatsinks cool.

I am not sure this is the place for this question but here goes. I found a new ASRock P55 Extreme motherboard with new Intel i5 Quad Core at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. I decided to buy it and built a system with it. I don't know the first thing about overclocking since I am not a gamer but I don't know if I have it set up right. There is a lot of stuff on this board that I am not familiar with; memory timing for one thing. Right now I have left everything at default in the BIOS. Can anyone tell me if there are settings in the BIOS that I need to make so the machine will run smoothly. I am using stock cooling on the motherboard and two 120 fans in the case. It will only be used for work which consists of Word processing, large spreadsheets and photo work. I know it is way more motherboard that I need but I couldn't pass it up for $85 for both board and processor, brand new. I am running Windows 7 Professional and 4Gig DDR3 1600 RAM with 650Gig WD HD 7200RPm. Can anyone tell me if the default for everything is okay? Thanks in advance.

You'll be fine if you run everything at stock settings. Though I have a few recommendations.
  1. Make sure your hard drive is set to AHCI.
  2. Flash to the latest BIOS. This should help with overall stability and performance.
  3. Manually set some of your voltages such as vdimm (RAM), VTT (though this could be set to AUTO), and manually set your RAM timings.
