    **Official** Asrock Z68 Gen3 Extreme7 & Extreme4 thread

    Asrock Z68 Gen3 Extreme7



    Thats right, it's that time again Just starting to trickle their way into the UK market are the Asrock Z68 Gen3 Extreme7 and Gen3 Extreme4. As with the other Asrock threads I've made, this thread is for Gen3 owners to discuss, share advice, and of course I come in if any problems or bugs are found

    You can find the specifications of each board here;
    Extreme7 Gen3
    Extreme4 Gen3

    Extreme7 & Extreme4 UEFI & Driver Package Download:

    Download Link

    Driver Package Contents:

    ASMedia USB 3.0 v1.14.8.0 [E7G3]
    Broadcom BCM57781 v15.2.0.4B
    Etron USB 3.0 v1.113 [E4G3]
    Intel HD Graphics v8.15.10.2761
    Intel ME v8.0.13.1502
    Intel PCH v9.3.0.1019
    Intel RST v11.2.0.1006
    Marvell 88SE9120 v1.2.0.1020
    Realtek HD Audio R2.70
    Lucidlogix Virtu v1.2.114

    How to flash the UEFI:

    Unzip the UEFI to a USB pen drive formatted to FAT32
    Enter UEFI and use the built-in flash program (remember to have your pen drive in a USB2 port for this)
    After the flash, enter UEFI and load defaults, save and exit.
    Remove power cord, CMOS battery, set CMOS jumper to "clear", press power button 3 times, leave for 5 mins.

    Extreme4 Gen3 is a nice looking board indeed. Not that it matters to me, but I'm sure theres going to be quite a few users who don't look at the manual to see which DIMM banks are for dual channel and will ask why they only have single channel Too many people are used to colour coded DIMM banks.

    "Generally speaking, CMOS power consumption is the result of charging and discharging gate capacitors. The charge required to fully charge the gate grows with the voltage; charge times frequency is current. Voltage times current is power. So, as you raise the voltage, the current consumption grows linearly, and the power consumption quadratically, at a fixed frequency. Once you reach the frequency limit of the chip without raising the voltage, further frequency increases are normally proportional to voltage. In other words, once you have to start raising the voltage, power consumption tends to rise with the cube of frequency."

    I got this board today and having a few probs getting it to run at 4.5GHz with a 2600k, ive disabled all the power saving features but under load running LinX it's actually dropping to 3.3GHz. Any ideas why?



    Heres my bios settings:

    Raise Core current limit(first bios picture) to 250 or 300(it's about TDP).
    Also SPREAD SPECTRUM - DISABLED
    And let HT activated, 2600K it's not a hot cpu even with HT(at least i think you don't use stoc cooler).
    Also from what i know overclocking works even with power saving options and TURBO enabled, so try with them too.

    These boards look great, and they have the slot layout done perfect too for two graphics cards with a 3 slot spacing each plus room for a soundcard!

    The all black is awesome, these would be my first choice picks for a Z68 board, and I wouldnt normally ever think of getting an Asrock board.

    I don't have a K-series CPU (I needed the virtualization tech for my VMWare use, and the K-series doesn't have all of it). 4.1GHz will be the highest I can manage on the standard Core i5-2500. I'm burning my system in first, and then I'll tweak it.

    I originally used the Socket 775 mounts that came with my Thermalright TRUE Black, but it's awkward even though the Asrock mainboard supports it. I ordered the 1156 Bolt-Thru kit made for the Venomous-X and Ultra120 series, and set things up a second time this evening. That mounting kit is by far more easy to work with, and does a better job, but I have to let the AS5 thermal interface material cure for a bit.

    Normally, I wouldn't either. However, the Z68 Extreme 4 (non-Gen 3) was highly rated, and the more I reviewed the specs of the Gen 3, the more I wanted to give Asrock a try for the first time.

    I've used a lot of boards over the past fifteen years -- AOpen, ASUS, Abit, Intel, MSI, and Gigabyte. Everything I see so far says this board can run with the best of those.

    Any idea when or if the Z68 Gen3 Extreme7 board will be for sale? Im looking to do a i5 2500K build now. I am hoping the price isnt through the roof though.

    My understanding was that the entire Gen3 line was supposed to be available during August, but I know nothing more than that.

    To date in the UK there is only one place I know of selling the Extreme7 and its rather expensive. Once more sites start stocking the Extreme7 I'm sure it'll be able to be picked up for a reasonable price. On the other hand, quite a few places already have the Gen3 Extreme4 in stock and it can be picked up for around £140.

    Ive just loaded up teamspeak and the same BSOD hit me i never get this BSOD when stressing my system anyone any ideas?

    The idle bsods are quite common on SB, so it's definitely not a motherboard fault.

    PS: Ket can we discuss about the p67 x4 gen3 and the z68 x3 too in this thread?

    OK I am definitely not forgetting you guys here, let me share a bit of my quick pics.

    Preview : Caught in between the 2 Extremes - the Asrock E3 and E7 Gen3 Z68 mobos!

    And they came in together just today!

    These 2 models represent the highest and lowest ends of the latest Asrock Extreme Gen3 series of Intel Z68 motherboard range. Both sport the new highly attractive Asrock look which means dark stealthy colours offset by gold highlights in the form of 100% Japanese 'Gold' caps used as well as the stylised gold branding letters emblazoned on the heatsinks.

    OK, let's rock with Asrock and roll out the preview with some quick pics...

    - all screwed down affair for the heatsinks







    Wanted to show how tall, thick and heavy these heatsinks are on the E7.






    Just compare the shipping weights of the 2 mobos, one is about twice as heavy as the other - man, that's really crazy heavy!

    3 fan headers & flexible LGA775/1155 mounting holes


    Full house socket caps


    Updated 160811 - earlier slot layout was apparently erroneous, corrected layout now in place.
