    Sorry for the long wait, I got a reply from Ket.

    I posted this **Official** Asrock Z68 Gen3 Extreme7 & Extreme4 thread - Page 25 If you have any comment on this or could look into this that would be great.

    Original post http://forums.tweaktown.com/asrock/4...eme3-gen3.html
    I mentioned that issue numerous times, not sure if R&D fixed it or not.. so your options right now would be to try the latest officual UEFI for the board or the latest beta UEFI. UEFI 1.30G, UEFI 1.3. The 1.3G is the newer of the UEFIs.
    See if that helps out or not.

    I tried both of those and neither of them did anything different. The only way that the other levels do something different is if I use the default overclocking profiles.

    This issue doesn't seem like its going to be fixed since Ket has mentioned this problem to the R&D members in the past and its hasn't been fixed with the newer updates.

    I am probably going to just exchange this board for the Z77 Extreme 4 since they are around the same price and hopefully that board doesn't have the same problem.

    I just tried with 2.03 beta bios and LLC is still the same, only level 1 works.

    You can try to use the overclocking profiles and just use ASRock eXtreme Tuner to change your settings. That seemed like it made the other LLC levels somewhat work.

    I ended up just returning the board and getting the Z77 Extreme4. The LLC levels work fine on that board so I have no idea why it doesn't work properly on the Z68 Extreme 3 board.

    Hey guys,

    I guess I kinda have the same problem. The different LLC levels will let the voltage drop slightly less, or slightly more than other levels and that they prevent spikes to a certain degree, but the spikes are pretty much the same on all of the LLC levels with only minor differences. One problem though is that if I have my voltage set at 1.30-1.32v in the bios and then run Prime95 in windows, I can see the voltage spike as high as 1.37 regardless of LLC setting. Is this normal? However, it won't go that high of a voltage often, just here and there. Especially when windows is loading and my apps are loading etc, because soon as windows boots up I immediately open CPU-Z, HWMonitor, and RealTemp. But after everything is done loading it will drop. But just to clarify, it happens in Prime95, but rarely. Amazing that a windows boot will cause the CPU to jump to 1.37 briefly, but Prime95 usually goes to 1.36 and mainly through out the whole test it's anywhere from 1.32-1.35v.

    Another odd thing that I noticed, is that I have two stable OCing profiles set in the bios of my ASRock Extreme3 Gen3. One is fixed voltage and the other is offset voltage. I got my offset profile 12 hours Prime95 blend stable, and my fixed voltage is only 8 hours, so I kinda need to work on that. Reason why it's only 8 is because one of the workers failed, so I uped the voltage a little and need to retry at another time. Anyways, I digress.

    What I really wanted to speak about is when I was messing with offset and LLC, is that the LLC levels 2-5 all have the same offset values, regardless of "-", or "+", they all have the same voltage value. An example would be that +0.060 would read as 1.320-1.344v as it fluctuates, and this value is the same with all LLC settings 2-5. However, if I load LLC level 1 and save and exit and come back to the bios, the voltage values for every offset value increase dramatically. Such as +0.060 is now reading 1.41.-1.42v in the bios instead of 1.320-1.344v, which was the reading voltage for all LLC levels, except for level 1, which I found odd.

    Just wanted to post my findings. If there is anything else I forgot to mention, or if I find anything later on that is worth mentioning, I will come back. Eventually I need to work on seeing if I can get stable on my profiles with less voltage, or not. Want my chip to last as long as possible with good speeds as possible. :)

    Take care!

    PS - Reason why this image says that the max voltage was 1.35, is because I closed HWMonitor and re-opened it to see what the voltages were like in Prime95. Also, seems like after I stop/start Prime95 the voltages went up to 1.37 as indicated by the pic directly below.
