for some reason, my usb mic gives a buzzing sound and i'm tring to figure out if it's the integrated sound, usb, or the motherboard in general. thanks!
It is most likely the integrated sound. I remember having this on my P5K and 890FXA boards as well when it got dusty.

problem is, the motherboard is new. i just made this build and this issue is being really annoying...

would a new sound card fix this? even though it's a usb mic?

im getting that too for my front microphone jack.... all i do is i turn down sme setting when you click on ur microphone properties, it has two bars, one for ur microphone volume and other one for sensitivity or smething like that. i turned that from 30 to 10 and everything sounds better.

problem is that the mic is a usb mic and not a traditional 3.5mm mic.

usb mics have less options than 3.5mm mics

i have fiddle with the mic settings and nothing is causing this buzzing to go away.

has anyone experienced this problem?

OK, now the tough question: how does USB 2.0 and 3.0 compatibility stack up for everyone? The fact that this board uses the apparently infamous EtronTech USB chip seems to be the only significant issue with this board.
I think this news item about Etron Tech and their USB 3.0 chip just answered my own question:

http://vr-zone.com/articles/etron-te...ion/12343.html

...I hope this means an updated USB driver may be in the works.

Hello all, this is my first post although I've been following this thread for quite some time now, been reading since page one. I was so excited by what I was reading I invested in the Asrock Extreme4 mobo along with an Intel 2500K, a Geforce GTX 560 Ti SuperClocked, and 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw. I can honestly say, I couldn't be happier! I was coming from an Intel e8500 @ 4.2Ghz, EVGA 750i SLI FTW Mobo, 2x GTX260 in SLI, and 4GB DDR2, what a difference these new parts make... After only 20 minutes of being assembled I had the knowledge and tools (thanks to this thread) to shoot for an everyday overclock that I can be happy with. I had some great results.

Currently sitting at 4.6GHz @ 1.328V stable, at least stable for 12 hours of Prime95 blend test. Incredible! My e8500 required so much juice to hit anything above 3.9GHz. Anything lower and the computer will freeze or BSOD during Prime95 testing. The only other settings I modified was the max power (255/255/300), drop LLC to level 4 (level 5 showed errors), and a lower voltage of 1.709V on the CPU PLL. Once I get better cooling I'll try to hit higher; I'm reusing my Zalman 9700 greased with Arctic Silver 5 from my last rig, and it isn't quite up to par. It works ok, but temps were reaching up to 78-80 during Prime95 testing, usually only for a second or two and it drops back down to 70ish. That's too close for comfort in my book. Idle temps are around 32-36 and during some hardcore gaming it sits in the mid 50's max of around 64. It may get better after the AS5 sets and goes through a few thermal cycles, my rig is only 3 days old from this post.

I do have one concern which I am seeking an answer for. When I first built my rig and booted it up, it would display the Asrock full screen logo. When I o/c I like to see post results, so I disabled it for a bit. But now, I can't get it back! I enabled the full screen logo and it boots so fast it just skips it and loads right to Windows. I can still enter UEFI by hitting delete before it loads windows, but should I be concerned that the full screen logo does not display? If I choose to see post results that works, but not the logo... I'm using the 1.70 BIOS, flashing it was the first thing I did before anything. I was reading about the mouse lag issue and I had it as well, so I had the update sitting on a flash drive waiting to be used.
There should be a setting in UEFI under the boot menu called 'Setup Preset Timout' or something like that; it's should be two options above the 'full screen logo' boot option. Change that from 1 to 3 or 4 or something; that number is how many seconds to wait on the splash screen for an option to be chosen before booting the OS

Hey guys, registered just to post here since Ive been reading up on how to overclock this baby.

Just finished putting together my Extreme 4 w/ 2500k. Got to get a couple more fans installed and should be able to do some runs. Btw, anyone know where the listing of what the numbers on the debugger mean?

The debug numbers are listed inside your manual.

So if I have a mechanical HDD would I still need to enable ACHI mode? Im reading stuff that states ACHI is for SSD so would this apply to me?
