This is not just me, either. Leeghoofd at Xtreme Systems was able to replicate this issue with his 920, 950, and 970.


We're currently talking to Asus trying to sort this out. As it's happening for both of us right at 4.0GHz QPI, there's a chance it might be a BIOS issue. I'll be sure to update this thread when I figure it out.
Thanks for researching this issue. Hopefully your research will pay off and we will see a fix from Asus.

This is very similar to what I found on the Formula except it hit the BCLK threshold earlier before performance started dropping. I haven't been able to get 223MHz BCLK stable on the Extreme or I'd check if my board has the same problem...
