Really, I probably just got a bad board.
Do me a favor and PM me when you get your new board. I am interested in knowing if that works for you or, if as the error seems to indicate (according to AsRock), it's the CPU.

These are Turbo Power limits. Overclocking Sandy Bridge is about overclocking those Turbo states. It means how far you can go with max Turbo multiplier on all 4 cores. So if you put higher limits, the less likely that it will try to throttle down.

Try to read some of the reviews about Sandy Bridge especially the part about Turbo 2.0 technology. For e.g. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...0k,2833-3.html

Default settings for Turbo Power Limits are:
Short 150W
Long 95W

Now keep in mind that default TDP (Thermal Desing Power) for 2500K/2600K is 95W at default clock speed. If you want to OC for lets just say 4,5GHz on all 4 cores during stress you will find out that this 95W is just not enough as the TDP rise up with the frequency and vCore. So this is the part where you adjust UEFi settings to 200/200 (for Short and Long) to prevent CPU throttling down.


I hope this is clear for you now.

Trying to decide on 2 mobo's: (Leaning towards the ASRock so far)

ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) or ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0)

It'd be great to save some $$ ($30 difference) since it'll help my budget a lot more. They have nearly the same layout, but I'm so used to having ASUS mobo's and I know my way around'em, is there any significant difference other than brand/price ?

I know this is the ASRock club, so some of you may be biased, but please try to help as best as you can.

EDIT: I will overclock, but I'm not expecting 5GHz, nor care to reach that.

I was in the same place you are. ASRock is owned by ASUS. ASRock was more of a budget company before and wasn't all that great but it's rising up now. People are getting the same overclocks on both boards. The ASRock only has a 1-year warranty which may be an issue for you. I think the ASRock is a better buy though.

Warranty doesn't bother me really, I've never had to RMA hardware - yet anyway.

I see that ASRock has gotten better, which is why I'm leaning towards it. They can use more business too to make them even better yet to compete with the top brands.

I think I'm sold, so if there's no real significant difference, no need to spend more when it's just not needed.

Extreme4 seems like a better buy and has more USB3 ports, why not try it out? It's also cheaper and great PCI slot arrangement if that matters.

Just ordered an Extreme4 this morning. the 2500K is set to be ordered in a couple weeks after the next payday.

Plan is to go for the auto 4.6 GHZ settings. Replacing stock cooler with Hyper 212 Plus. Think the Rosewill Blackbone case will need extra side fans to keep up? Is a double fan setup on the cooler really necessary?

Not bashing you but Asrock is not owned by asus anymore and they are doing very well with there p67 line up i am loving my extreme 6

I posted a little ways back about my double boot (or cold boot?) issues when trying to turn off Spread Spectrum (so I could get the BCLK to run at 100.0 and not 99.8).

I saw that some others pulled a BIOS 1.60A from a German website. They said this BIOS fixed the dual boot issue.

My BIOS is 1.60 which came with my updated B3 board. Where does this 1.60A come from? Is it something that ASRock designed or is it a hacked/edited/etc BIOS that is floating around? I'm just hesitant to reflash with something that isn't provided thru the ASRock website.....

Proof? I read ASUS is still their parent company.
