    Default Z77 extreme4 not over clocking past 4.3

    Well last night I decided to have a play with my OC to see what it could really do.

    Went to set the multiplyer in bios to 45 but it kept reverting back to 43... I'm sure I've had it at 46 before but maybe I'm wrong?

    So then tried the software (which I hate using normally) again the slider doesn't go past 43??

    Is there something I'm missing? Bios version is 2.8,
    Maybe Asrock have stopped the board from going past 4.3 on the latest revision?

    ... sigh... no mention of your CPU or other hardware.

    My ASR Z77 EX 4 board with an i5-3570K is running at its usual 4.5GHz with UEFI/BIOS 2.90, 2.80, etc, no problem.

    Sigh..... The hardware police are at it again! ;-)

    Already got a reply from ASRock now so not that it matters but here goes

    i7 3770k
    4x 4gb corsair dominator 1600mhz
    ATi HD7850 graphics
    Asus Xonar ST sound card
    Corsair HX850w PSU
    Xigmatex Elysium
    No optical drive
    1x 120gb vertex3 ssd
    3x 1tb WD HDDs
    Custom water cooled system both GPU and CPU

    Anyway.... ASRock have said it could be a courrpt Intel ME firmware problem, however they are sending me a new bios chip to test that first.

    ASRock is right about that, or that should be the problem.

    The hardware police are out because we have had people that can't OC their CPU, only to find out five posts later that they don't have a 'K' processor, or their board does not have a chipset that allows OCing.

    So instead of hours or days wasted with 20 questions, we can fix it in a few posts, or send them back to the PC parts store to get what they really need. Which would you rather do?
