That sucks. Haven't developed any issues with mine yet and I'm crossing my fingers that I dont
Thanks for all the info you have posted about these boards. Sorry to hear you're having trouble with the Asrock board.
I was originally going to get the ASUS but your feedback had me ready to pull the trigger on the Asrock as we seem to have similar desires from a motherboard (the cold boot time is a big plus!). Now I think I will wait for the ASUS to come back in stock and see if there is any other postive or negative feedback from others with respect to the Asrock and make a decision then.
Thanks again for all your feedback!
If it was a random shutdown with no error code other than "kernel power error" and it wouldn't cold boot back up on the first time that almost sounds like a slight memory incompatibility error.
A while back Some intel boards would do this where they will random shutdown, no errors anywhere and it was usually memory or power supply related
Yes, the chassis fan header controls 3-pin fans. I use the chassis fan header for my Antec Kuhler 620 in order to allow fan and pump speed variation.
Thank You again for pointing this out! I can't believe the chassis header has this capability, but you are indeed right. Now I can get some gentle typhoons and run them @ 500-700 during light workloads depending on whether I go with AP-14s or AP-15s.
So, I'd just like to add an update that my ASRock H77 ITX board took a crap today and killed my CPU as well. I'm not sure if I want to use another ASRock board after that, I was heavily considering swapping out the H77 for the Z77 so I could OC a 3570k. Its one thing if you're overclocking to the moon and it pops, but H77 can't OC at all so everything was at stock settings.
Mind explaining how the h77 supports ocing?
Don't see anyone ocing on h77, hmm wonder if it can do 4.2? Then I can save some money and go h77 instead of z77http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H77M_PRO/
edit: i think the confusion comes from the h67 not supporting overclocking
What water cooling systems have been confirmed to work with this mobo? I'm looking at the SG07/08 so I guess it'd have to fit in that chassis too.
