The ASUS/ASrock P55 and X58 Club & Discussion(Under construction) - Page 32

post #311 of 329
I just got the Asus P7P55D-E PRO, haven't actually booted up the computer yet though. Because of a certain site saying they had RAM in stock and then it turns out they had to back order it.

Also, this is my first Home Build so I'm new to the whole Overclocking thing. Haven't been able to find an OC Guide for this MOBO. Specs for my rig are below though, any help is appreciated

Can't seem to find the correct thread for asking for help with OC'ing my GPU's, CPU, MOBO, and RAM -_-

And the search option was a fail for me, lol... I'm probably being too specific in my searches.

For the CPU, this guide is a good start:

http://www.techreaction.net/2010/09/...e-lynnfield/4/

Following its advice, I obtained 4270MHz with an 870 (or 4444 without HT, which is
normally better for gaming).

Sorry to inform all ASRock owners but my ASRock P55 Extreme motherboard died on November 24 ,2010 just a little 1 year and 1 week from the day I ordered it from Newegg. I did not build this computer until Christmas of that year. I contacted ASRock about the failure, and it was out of warranty, if I paid to ship it back ASRock will charge $35 labor and service fee and provide 3 months warranty for the replacement. I choose to upgrade and buy a Gigabyte P55A-UD4P with a 3 year warranty and could not be happier.

Obvious question, do you know what caused the failure? Any ideas? Was the CPU
being oc'd? What specs were used? Any signs of component damage on the board?

I never overclocked the board .No idea what caused the failure. Only symptoms that it had was, when you go to turn on the computer, sometimes it would try to start up and then shut back down.

Hmm, hard to make much of a judgement I guess then. I have four P55 Deluxe systems, no
mbd issues yet. So far the only problem I ran into was my own fault, when I oc'd an 860 too
much. The mbds have been fine. Done oodles of tests with them:

I'm curious, what's the update for? The BIOS description says updated CPU code, but
the CPU support list shows the 990X has been supported since 2.60.

I just bought the ASRock X58 Supercomputer motherboard (open box) from a well reviewed e-tailer and I would like to know if it's missing anything other than the printed material & driver/utility disks, I can (have) downloaded the printed & binary stuff but am concerned that perhaps a cable/connector is missing.

TIA
