My System Specs

Default Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3

Does anyone have this board? I have weird issue since installing it. I sometimes don't get LCD signal on post and have to reboot or shut down to fix issue. Running a Sapphire 5870. I tried 2500k at stock speed to make sure my OC wasn't the problem with same result. I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks

That to me sounds more like a Cold boot issue with the Video card than with the mother board.
If I get what you are saying at least.

I would try and borrow or swap your video card out first to see if that corrects the problem.

One other thing I noticed with this board is that turbo mode @ 4ghz gives it 1.25 volts which I find a little high. At 4.4 ghz is gives it 1.385. Is that normal ? I was having issues with OC on this board when i changed anything but turbo mode.

Every CPU is different though in the amount of vCore it will need to be stable on its OC.

It might be a bit high but its probably still within spec.
