    Replaced my Fatal1ty z77 with an ASUS Maximus V Formula. On the ASRock board I needed 1.246v to run @ 4.6GHz. On the ASUS board I only need 1.213v. The offset is the same on both boards +0.030

    Temps are way down as a result.

    I couldn't get 4.7GHz stable on my ASRock but this ASUS board will do it easily.

    Good job Mark. I had an ASRock fataility for AMD, after 4 RMAs they still didn't get it right, it's contaminating a landfill somewhere now.

    I'm still running a Fatal1ty 990FX Pro and it's great. It's strange that the exact same thing could happen on both z77 boards. I'm going to RMA it and sell the replacement they send me for cheap.

    The 990FX pro is what I threw away. I think it's the Fatality branding. Or ASRock in general.

    I won't buy ASRock again. I was tempted to get an OC Formula but I'm glad I got this ASUS board instead.

    Just hit 5GHz. Not bench stable yet so I don't have temps

    Good job Mark. That board has a lot of UEFI settings to help with stability. Essenbe has the same one I think.
    If it runs long enough, validate it at 5.0GHz.
