    I did read the thread, perhaps you should practice what you preach because you obviously did not read it. If you did then you would realize this is a problem which resetting the bios doesnt solve the issue.

    If I sounded a little excited its because I AM considering the fact the new bios messes up your ability to overclock.

    Thanks, I guess replacing the bios chip will be a last resort plan for me. Im gonna try a few things first and if they dont work then I will get a replacement. Thanks again for your help guys.

    Uggghh! board seems dead this morning. Will no longer boot at all, clearing cmos doesnt help a bit and tried switching my ram around. Went ahead an ordered a Z77 board from the egg as I need my pc up and running asap.

    Once I get my new board I will deal with asrock rma over this matter!

    Alright submitted a ticket to asrock support, lets see what they say. If they will just send me a bios replacement chip I would be pleased because I can then fix the board and sell it which would offset some of the cost for my new board.

    Asrock support got back to me and just as I figured they denied any issues with the latest 3.10 and 3.20 bios, they told me that those bios's do not support sandy bridge CPU's which is the reason that overclocking is broken. I know those bios's are for ivy bridge cpu's if you decide to upgrade but I figured the bios's would still be compatible with sandy bridge too right?

    Never assume....always verify.
    I have a major problem with their bios download page, as they currently offer only one beta bios for Sandy Bridge.
    It's my understanding that you can't flash back using the earlier Sandy Bridge bios once you've flashed to the listed newest bios versions.
    Their bios download page should say in big bold text:
    This bios is ONLY for Ivy Bridge 3rd generation processors.

    Send a PM to ASRock TSD - Emily, provide a link to your post and see if she can help.
    The only other option is to buy a pre-flashed bios chip that has the Sandy Bridge bios.

    Thanks man thats what I did yesterday, got one from ebay and its preflashed to the Sandy Bridge bios. I had originally ordered a new Z77 board but decided to reject the package and have it sent back to newegg.com.

    The bios chip was only $16 bucks verses $109.99 for a new board and I still like the P67 Pro3 as its been a good board and still has life in it.

    I heartily agree, but it looks like no mother board manufacture is doing this. Owners see a new BIOS/UEFI and think it is better or improved, and jump right on it.

    If the mobo manufactures think the IB compatible BIOS retain all the SB functionality, they are wrong. But how could they not know that? They all seem to not want to maintain two versions of a BIOS/UEFI, which would be unusual but if necessary, it should be done.

    Can't these manufactures see the grief they are causing their customers and themselves?! I don't get it...
