    Default ASRock 890GX Extreme 4 R2 with AMD FX 8350 Fault

    Hi,
    I have an ASRock 890GX Extreme 4 R2.0 with the latest bios update and am running an AMD FX8350. I have noticed that is not stable at all at stock speeds when using all 8 cores, the computer just freezes or crashes all the time. When I put my previous CPU in (AMD Phenom II 1090t) there are no problems at all.
    I have noticed in the bios that you can't select 8 cores only 1, 2, 4, 6 or AUTO. Auto always crashes but with 6 cores selected I have no problems at all. It seems that the bios update hasn't addressed this issue. I can't even boot with AUTO enabled.
    It seems there is a real problem with this board. I know it isn't the CPU as I have replaced it and the new one is still having the same problems.
    Anyone else experienced this problem?
    Thanks

    Politely, please list you other hardware that comprises your system.

    There is a (foot)note on that MB's CPU Support List denoted on the 8350 that seems to infer the MB needs some rather stout cooling.
    ie: * For cooling the CPU and its surrounding components, please install a CPU cooler with a top-down blowing design.

    Which, to me, would probably be suspect concerning what you wrote above what with anything but 8 cores or Auto it functions fine.

    In further looking I see they updated the BIOS to 1.50 for support of AM3+ cpu's.

    Please note that the 8-core 125w FX cpu's are the ones that that have the footnote applied.

    My advice, if the MB is new and still returnable, I'd return it. My 2cents anyways.
