    Thinking further on the issue of lockups, I did disable anything in UEFI which I don't need, plus I muted the sound (I believe all my lockups in UEFI were during the "swoosh" sound (as were the lockups I've had in Windows while playing the windows startup sound - but that apparently was a driver issue).

    Using the iGPU instead of a discrete GPU and otherwise stripping the system's hardware as bare as possible made no difference for me with the UEFI lockups.

    I haven't noticed "lackluster" Purity sound on my Extreme 6, absolutely sounds fine for me and I'm pretty sure it's better than my old system. Not tried any microphone yet though.

    Slot 4 runs off the PCH, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to keep the card in that slot since it will hinder your graphics performance.


    There is clearly something bios related causing this issue. I hope Asrock has a bios update for this issue soon.

    I'm a little flustered at this point. I've tried multiple ways of installing the LAN drivers and it just won't work whatsoever with windows 8 for some reason. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Hi All,
    Registered to reply to this thread as another Extreme4 user with the same lockup issues.

    Shiari, I noticed that on the lockups the "swoosh" sound you referred to was muffled or cut short. The only times I was able to use bios without the freeze, the sound at the bios launch was clear and played as I believe it should play normally. I'm not at home right now but I'm going to give disabling any and all sounds a try and will give some feedback when I can.

    I got my board from Microcenter and am thinking about just returning for the Gigabyte UD4H as I've never had an Asrock board and don't know what to expect in terms of this issue being corrected by them anytime soon.

    Since the purity sound sounds like garbage I put my Xonar DG back in. I will report if I have any bios freezes with this option. There is an option to mute the sound in the bios if the freezing is related to it.

    No more freezing issues so far with a dedicated sound card.

    Yeah the sound in the bios is what does seem to be causing the lockups there. Just disabling the sound there (mute button at the bottom) seems to do the trick. And the sound (and the starry background) is cheesy anyway, so no loss. Now all we need is a button to disable that background. :)

    So the onboard sound does not work? You have to buy a sound card? I hope I read this wrong.

    I've got the extreme 6 (not the 4, but they're largely similar), and for me it works fine. Just not in UEFI, the woosh sound playing as you enter UEFI seems to lock up the machine quite frequently.
