You want 1.80 if you're looking for the latest BIOS.

It should be like other boards. Go into the BIOS/UEFI → Advanced → UEFI Update Utility (pictured here).

Get the drivers from the ASRock website. They will be more up-to-date than those on the driver CD.

Sup guys, my first real post!

I got this board a few weeks ago, loving it

i5 2500k @ 4.2 GHz @ 1.21V on a Corsair H60
temps are 36 idle. load on prime95 hits a ceiling of 60C, while load on intel burn using 4Gb of my 8Gb RAM hits 70C.
i KNOW this is an EASY overclock for this chip. but i'm not ready to push it to see if i have a golden chip yet.

PS, i never went down from 1.21, i just started there and kept upping the multiplier, I'm curious how high i can go on 1.21... thats another day tho.
should I get the new latest BIOS? i'm also at P1.60 it says... does it matter?

How do I stop the multiplier and voltages from fluctuating? At idle they are x45 and 1.35v which is what I want. Then when it goes under load it changes between 41-45 multi and 1.35-1.378v

You should only update your BIOS if it fixes an issue your having.....otherwise just leave it as it is.......

Why on earth you need 4,5GHz at idle with fixed voltage? Learn how to use offset.

And if you would searched this thread you would find answer to multiplier throttling under load. I will give you little piece of advice: Turbo and Core Current Limits.

Would the Dual booting issue i get when i overclock be a reason to update BIOS?

Edit: add: so, it doesnt always dual boot. I cant pinpoint what changes cause the dual boot. With 4.0ghz and 1.21 V it didnt dual boot, with the turbo/corelimit at 255/255/300. with those being the ONLY changes so far.

I was told in the new members section when i said hello and listed my OC that i should leave the voltage on AUTO first and see where it puts me naturally? do they mean AUTO Vcore when at 33x multiplier, or my overclocked multi (in this case 42x) and then do they mean under load or idle?
When Vcore Auto:
40x, idle Vcore:1.034, intelburntest (standard) Vcore: 1.39 vcore, max temp:78
33x, idle Vcore:0.984, intelburntest (standard) Vcore: 1.275vcore, max temp:67
ive completed harder tests at x42 with fixed vcore 1.21 and passed with max temps 70... BUT there was dual booting... help?

Every UEFI newer than 1.60 have dualboot fixed. So update to latest official 1.80.
post #918 of 1839
One last question... I'm trying to find out about offset voltage and searched these forums, but i dont really get it...

When i use offset, what is the number im setting, (+/- a certain voltage). Is the voltage no longer fixed then at a lower value like 1.2?

For someone like me whose goal is a ~4.5 overclock daily, but wants it to downvolt when not gaming or stress testing for stability, it seems offset is better... I do want the chip to last at least 4-5 years as well, so less wear the better.

EDIT:Add: BIOs updated to 1.8. I found a good guide on offset. It basically lowers the auto voltage by a set amount. problem is the huge difference in my auto voltages.
if you see my last post where my auto load for x40 was 1.39, the idle was 1.039. I KNOW this processor can run x40 at 1.2, but if i offset by -.19, my idle would become .849, which surely wouldnt be stable. I wish i could just say, MAX voltage u can use is 1.2, but it can still downvolt, and yet WONT downvolt/clock while gaming!

Offset voltage knows when CPU need max set voltage. At idle it will keep around 0.9-1 V.

change :

Intel Turbo Boost technology from 118 to 150-180
turbo boost power limit from 95 to 120-140

and all will be good
