Conclusion Going into this, I was under no false impressions. Many newer games now take full advantage of dual core processors, and the C2D line of CPUs is quite feisty even when compared to it’s higher clocked single core brethren. What BIOS version is on your motherboard? Links to ASRock pages on the wiki site: All background tasks were disabled. Any info for using these with OSx86 would be appreciated.

No big surprises here. I flashed it with PCtrieber’s unofficial bios about 5 yrs ago and run with 4GB 3.
ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA – motherboard – ATX – LGA775 Socket – PT880 Ultra
I wonder if the hack to get a Socket Xeon running n a board will work with chipest board. How did you get 4Gb running? In the past I’ve had good luck overclocking Asrock boards and was disappointed to to find neither Vcore nor CPU multiplier adjustments.
This allows greater overclocks than 3. I still have the board, but it’s not in use. It’s a interesting board with Windows 98 to Windows 10 support, but let me go through my experiences with it so far.

They can typically get up to depending on the cpu. There must be a catch!
Last edited by jordi on The main problem with PCI-Express is that it is limited to 4x generation 1 speed, meaning newer cards do get bottlenecked with a quick CPU. It’s not SATA2 so you’re stuck with 1. After countless hours, finally got this board fully stable and 4coredual-svta.
In my personal opinion, running quad’s is not worth it because of the FSB hit and 4coredual-vsat of the games supporting quad cores. Asrock has only been around sincebut since then they’ve made quite a name for themselves as a producer of budget priced motherboards to fill just about any niche.

That said, Conroe chips aren’t exactly cheap, and decent S boards are insanely expensive. All graphics tests were carried out using latest available free apps. Board index All times are UTC. Posted December 18, Placement of 20 pin power connector makes cable management near impossible.
Asrock 4CoreDual-VSTA review
Posted April 25, The reviews I could find suggested to me 4coredusl-vsta I’d get fairly 4coredualv-sta results with my current DDR memory due to lower latencies, but the video cards they used as reference were older models and I was fairly certain that my card would easily saturate the PCIe slot on this board. Here’s my 3dmark chipet result I got with it. Posted October 3, Would it have cost too much to include a 1 cent jumper for the cmos reset pins?????
There are individual patches that can be manually integrated with JaS Unfortunately that did not work, I got as far as apple logo with no-entry sign, and with various different selections in install, gave different errors. But I’m thinking of updating soon. It’s usually what gave them a bad reception, ASRock has deteriorated from that path since many years ago and as such is viewed much more favorably nowadays.
Instead, my intent is to examine a budget upgrade path for S single core users. Nothing seems to work!
What BIOS version is on your motherboard? Even taking budget concerns into account I’ve dismissed AM2 for the simple reason that AMD has yet to release any info on where it’s going with development, and I don’t want to take a chance on finding myself tied to another dead platform in 6 months time.
