LAST ASROCK BOARD I BUY.

I feel really bad for you man. I'm sorry this happened to you, their are a lot of things you could have done & can still do to reverse whats happened. Don't keep flashing the bios tho, that's for sure... you might end up with a bricked bios/uefi chip. Personally I love ASRock boards, as a matter fact I have purchased about ten mainboards over the years (2 ASRock) and never had a problem with one. All error is human error, its not the boards fault or the manufacturers... You have people here that have confirmed that all works well after the bios/uefi & driver updates, you must have screwed up somewhere. Don't get frustrated or give up. Take a break, review your steps, communicate with those who know what they are doing and go back to it. Best of luck. thumb.gif

@Yetyhunter
No one cares about your threats. I have same board, same CPU and don't have single issue !

What is the meaning of all that....the real problem lies between your chair, mice and keyboard.

Just done a fresh Win 7 install on my P67 Extreme4 (B3) but this thread is so unwieldy I don't know what drivers to install and what to ignore.

I'm on BIOS 1.6. with an Intel 2500K CPU, and currently have no USB 3 devices.

Installed so far (in order):

- Realtek Lan driver ver:7.044

- INF driver ver:9.2.0.1015

- Realtek high definition audio driver ver:R2.51

- Intel Management Engine driver ver:8.0.2.1410

- ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility ver:0.1.212


Anything else I should install at this point?

Sorry I haven't gotten around to filling in my system specs yet... should rectify soon.

You should install all newest drivers for all available technology's even if you don't use them. Its just good practice. And hey why the hell not, one day you might use a feature you haven't before, now you don't have to get a driver first (should probably still check if there is an update tho)... Anyways make sure if your using/going to be using the new bios, and you want to still use aXtu, download the new version that works with the new ME drivers. The only drivers I'd stay away from if you don't have any use for them is the Marvell SATA3 Floppy Image, AppCharger, & Intel Smart Connect. Everything else is necessity IMO. thumb.gif

Intel Smart Connect (from a quick google) seems to be something for laptops (I use a desktop) and one of the 4 HDD drivers doesn't even have a description. Was also wondering whether any of the utilities were worth getting.

I don't like cluttering my system with useless junk if I can avoid it. smile.gif

Hey guise I have a few questions about my ASRock Intel P67 Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard.

1) I am currently running this RAM on it.

I just learned about RAM speed, and it seems my RAM is slow. If I was to change my RAM to a DDR3 2133, what PC3 should it be? On newegg, all the DDR3 2133 RAMs are PC3 17000. Would my motherboard handle that RAM? What does PC3 mean and how do I choose the right RAM type speed?

2) I am using the COOLER MASTER HAF 912 case.

My motherboard came with this:

145

How do I install that in my case? It doesn't fit in the front and I can't find anything to mount it with.

3) Also how many video cards can I run on this motherboard? Can I put two GTX 570 for example?

it mounts in the 3.5 floppy drive bay if you dont have one you will need a 5.25 to 3.5 bay converter.
you can use any ram up to 2133 on this board im using 1600 ddr3 overclocked to 1866.

as for the haf 912 there should be two brackets it came with to mount in the lower 5.25 bay. punch out the center screen on the cover it came with and slide it in and pop in the front panel usb. unless youve lost the brackets it should work.

on the motherboard you can have up to 3 graphics cards if your case will allow you to do so.

kingofspoons, the one without a label is the intel rapid storage tech instal file. Indeed smart connect is going to be more beneficial on a laptop (battery saver) but desktops can benefit from the power saving applications too.

Utilities Worth Using:
aXtu = monitoring, clocking, fan control, power saving, more...
asr 3tb+ unlocker = can't use 3tb+ drives without it!
all the xfast programs are good too, the ram one is the least useful of the three for my needs.

Quick Ram Explanation (Click to show)
The official name for ddr memory is based on its bandwidth rather than clock speed. The easy method to convert data rate to bandwidth is to multiply by eight. Thus, ddr-400 is called pc-3200; ddr2-800 is called pc2-6400 and ddr3-1600 is called pc3-12800. The math behind this factor is simple, pc memory modules based on sdram tech use a 64-bit connection, (there are eight bits in a byte and 64 bits equal eight bytes). For example, ddr2-800 transfers 800 megabits per pathway-per second, its 64 pathways provide one eight-byte transfer per cycle and 800 times eight is 6400. The problem comes with "rounding" and was first noticed with ddr-266 (pc-2100). The data rate of 266 MHz is actually 266.6 (repeating) megahertz, so true transfer rate is 2133 MHz. So your ddr3-2133 are really pc3-17064, manufactures and venders often simplify this # to a rounded one (for the consumers sake).
USB3 Mounting Answer (Click to show)
371
Just screw the 3.5 to 5.25 bay adapter brackets (circled in red) that your case came with, into the correct holes on the 3.5 usb3/ssd mount from the mainboard package. Then slide it into your case's 5.25 to 3.5 bay (blue arrow), add screws, and your done! Well you still got to plug it in smile.gif
Graphics (Click to show)
Oh and mainboard supports up to three gpus (sli, & physx)

Hope this helped guys...thumb.gif
