If your clock speeds are going up and down that means EIST is enabled. It's supposed to happen - you should see it bounce around at all times unless you are doing absolutely nothing.

In the uefi it might be called Intel Speedstep, I forget because I haven't touched it.

It's highly recommended to leave EIST and C1E enabled at all times whether overclocking or not. Sandy Bridge is different and is actually very stable with those options enabled; without them, it is very unhappy and unstable. The other C-states and P-state limit options are a little different and what you should do with them depends largely on whether you are using Fixed/Manual voltage or Offset voltage method.

Because EIST + overclocking on Sandy Bridge actually work well, there's no benefit to turning it off. Trust me on that and you will save yourself some headaches smile.gif.

But, could you do me a favor my good man. When i had my B2 revision of this board I got up to 4.8, but since i got the B3 I'm stuck at 4.6. The favor is this, could you post or send me a picture of all your bios settings, for a basis for comparison. Obviously I know each CPU different, but I have had it at 4.8 before i want it again. I'm sure you feel my pain =)

You might want to just ask munaim1 at the sandy stable club because he might know the issue offhand and help save some time. If you had it at 4.8 before, obviously your settings were generally good for YOUR cpu, so personally I wouldn't want to go around changing a bunch of things, especially multiple things at once, that could cause some confusion and wasted time.

hey guys, I just picked up a extreme4 b3 yesterday, is any of the asrock software worth installing?

By software I assume you mean drivers? If so, they're the most likely to have been tested compared to newer releases direct from the various third-party manufacturers, so they should be more stable.

Be careful though before installing v.10.6.0.1002 of the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver (on ASRock's page), as it requires UEFI 1.90--which has been known to cause crashes/BSODs for some users.

I was actually referring more to the utilities they have on the website. ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility, Instant Boot, THX TruStudio PRO audio, XFast LAN utility, XFast USB Utility.

I have always stayed away from these type utilities in the past, just wondered if these were worthwhile.

ASRock Extreme Tuning utility ... seems to work fine
Instant Boot ... loads quicker; tradeoff is it apparently takes longer to shutdown (heard this from an Extreme4 user on YouTube)
THX TruStudio PRO audio ... only heard one user's report on this--had trouble installing it
XFast LAN utility ... only heard one user's report, in which it messed up his packet priorities/lag, etc.
XFast USB utility ... mostly good reports on this; it basically boosts Windows task priority of the USB ports/devices to gain most of its speed

Cool, Thanks, I'll just not install them. +rep

No, I did and got a bunch of issues. I wouldn't use anything except maybe the tweaker software.

+1 on their Xfast Lan messing up priorities. Don't install it.

FWIW, there's a lesser-known ASRock "Tech Zone" page that provides more detail about each of the utilities and what they do (I still can't remember how I found it):
