Guys, my 2600k setup is no longer stable @ 4.6GHz, all the way up to 1.405v Fixed Voltage and I don't know why (was stable @ 1.38v before). For the hell of it I ran Prime95 torture test and now I BSOD constantly where-as before I was stable. Any ideas?

Which one is the PWM fan? I used as many of the chassis connectors that I was able for my 5 HAF-X fans. Since the Cooler Master 200mm case fans use all 3-pin connectors I ended up having to hook many of them directly to my PS connectors.

OK, I got my setup 2600k 4.6GHz o/c stable (for the moment) by changing from Fixed Mode to PLL Offset Mode (.005 I think?). Is it safe to use long-term? I'm thinking I'm not using enough of the O/C features in the bios. With the amount of fans I have on my case and the fact I have a push/pull config on my Hyper 212+ I should be able to get over 4.6GHz safely.

I have a Antec HCP-1200 PS so power is definitely not an issue.

Just curious- Am I the only one tri-crossfiring unlocked 6950s on an Extreme4 right now? haven't found anyone else who is (or 6970s either).

Should I assume the instant flash is the best way to update. Stay away from the Windows update?

Instant flash is so simple there's no point in doing the Windows updater

so i am all excited to flash to bios 1.70 from the ASRock site. I just did it by using Instant Flash from bios and a thumb drive. Everything worked, rebooted, and now there is nothing on the screen when I go to BIOS....just black. Actually the ASRock screen appears just fine< but when you hit F2 to go into the setup there is then just black screen. The computer won't boot to windows because I need to get in there and switch to AHCI, but I cant because the UEFI doesnt show up on the screen!

Any ideas? I tried to hit the CLR CMOS button....it restores to defaults but still when I then hit F2 it goes to the black screen. Its stuck on "A9" on the Dr Debug - dont recall if thats where it sits when youre actually in the Bios setup the whole time.

how do I go back to 1.60 that I had before, or how do I get the BIOS to show on the screen?

Aha... I finally solved by problem with my overclock, see this

There was nothing wrong with my cpu or motherboard at all, it was just I had my ram at the wrong stock settings (I had it at 1N instead of the stock 2N at stock voltage). Of course I am simply just hoping that was problem since memtest+ showed no errors when I ran the test when I had it at 1N. I don't know what else could be the problem. Other than my CPU could potentially suck.
Though that would explain why during my prime95 blend test, it blue screen'ed but not the small FFT test.
One thing I'm not really looking forward to is redoing all my overclock voltages since I spent so much time on what I thought was stable voltages, which could very well be more voltage than I need.
And of course I solved my problem right when asrock released new stable bios. Which makes me happy somewhat.

Well my Extreme4 just said bye bye 2 hours ago. I think it blew. At first I thought it was my Power supply, the HX850 by Corsair, but i tested it with my other rig and it powered it fine.
Anyone know of any tests to diagnose the mobo?, it might be the CPU but I don't know in-depth enough.

Damn firmware is all screwy. Running 1.70 and PLL Offset mode I had my Win7 setup do an Auto-Hibernate last night and this morning not only would it refuse to recover, but my setup kept on restarting over and over again. Clearing the CMOS did nothing. I had to reflash 1.7 to get it to stop doing this odd behavior.

See above a few posts....I had a bad acid flash and couldnt get into BIOS (even though the computer still worked). Since ASRock defaults to IDE (why?) in their bios, I couldnt get my HDD to load Windows. This morning had to bring in a 3rd HDD just to reload an "IDE" Windows onto it, and from there I could reflash 1.70 from Windows. Now seems to work, thankfully.

I am crossing my fingers that I don't find the bugs you're finding. All I wanted to do was fix my Spread Spectrum Disabled problem, just so I could see "100.0" on CPU-Z and not "99.8". So anal.
