The first AMD motherboard... to enable SLI on an AMD chip-set...
Thanks to the easy to understand UEFI Bios, the easy to spot problem lights, the mem ok button, the built in thermal sensors and user controllable 6 fan headers, this board is not only expensive, its great for overclocking!! All these features flow perfectly together and thanks to the ease of this bord (and a little help from OCN member bradford1040) I went from a beginner overclocker to an intermediate overclocker almost literally over nite!!
I have never been one to get too impressed by a motherboard in the past however I'm willing to comfortably say I'm impressed, dollar for dollar this was an excellent purchase that i believe I'll be satisfied with for a good long time, if you feel the same way and own this board join the club, we would be glad to have you.

I installed my Sabertooth today using all the same components in my sig. The new BIOS is nice but I'm not used to it so I haven't tried overclocking yet. I noticed the Hard disk score in Windows experience index went from 7.3 to 7.6 since I installed this board.

oh yea...... ADD ME

in the bios there is a feature in the overclocking section of the advanced bios that will scan and apply an automatic overclock... from there you should be able to raise to 4ghz+ without even touching the voltage... adding you to members list:)
