    Default No LLC Level Works Besides Level 1 on my Z68 ASRock Extreme3 Gen3

    None of my LLC levels seem to be working on my ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 besides level 1. I set my voltage to 1.43v in the Bios and each of the LLC levels except for 1 make the voltage stay the same during idle or load. Here are the results of each of the 5 LLC levels.

    Level 1 LLC: Bios set voltage- 1.43v Bios shows- 1.424v-1.432v Windows idle: 1.416v Windows Prime95 blend load: 1.424-1.432

    Level 2 LLC: Bios set voltage- 1.43v Bios shows- 1.352v-1.36v Windows idle: 1.384v-1.392v Windows Prime95 blend load: 1.320v-1.336v

    Level 3 LLC: Bios set voltage- 1.43v Bios shows- 1.352v-1.36v Windows idle: 1.384v-1.392v Windows Prime95 blend load: 1.320v-1.336v

    Level 4 LLC: Bios set voltage- 1.43v Bios shows- 1.352v-1.36v Windows idle: 1.384v-1.392v Windows Prime95 blend load: 1.320v-1.336v

    Level 5 LLC: Bios set voltage- 1.43v Bios shows- 1.352v-1.36v Windows idle: 1.384v-1.392v Windows Prime95 blend load: 1.320v-1.336v

    All of these tests were done with the voltage fixed to 1.43v and tried both with the C-States/Intel Speed Step turned on or off. The programs I used were CPU-Z 1.6 64bit and Prime95 26.6.

    Does anyone know why I am getting the same results with LLC levels 2-5?

    Maybe try doing a cmos clear 1-5 min and try again? Make sure you are using the latest bios/uefi for your board.

    I have tried the latest official and beta bios and they still don't work except level 1. I cleared the cmos too and it had no effect.

    I read a few other people had this issue when the board was first released but no one ever said if it was solved or not.

    I have also tried both offset/fixed voltage control and still none of the other LLC levels work besides level 1.

    Is this just a defect on my specific motherboard or do all Extreme3 Gen3's have this problem?

    I would say to try and contact ASRock directly and point them to this thread and see what they say. Maybe there is a issue and they can send you beta bios to test.

    This is the response I got from ASRock:

    Hi,
    Please check the below link , hope this help with the V core. However, i5-2500k V core is set to 1.35 and higher than that will be harm for the CPU.

    Thank you

    Is there anyone else I can try to contact, as that response didn't answer my question.

    Do you have a account over at XS (Xtremesystems)? Here is the **Official** Asrock Z68 Gen3 Extreme7 & Extreme4 thread. The Extreme 3 is covered just not in the title. If you can make a post over there and link them to this thread or PM Ket as I believe he has contacts with ASrock and see if he can help you.

    If dont have a account over there and cant register as I think they require a $1 donation to join now. Let me know and I can try to PM him or post for you.

    I don't have an account there unfortunately. I would really appreciate it if you can PM Ket and post this information in that thread.

    Thanks again for your help.
