Do some stress testing.

Prime 95, Intel Burn test , Linpack based LinX etc.

I was wondering if anyone has a FX8150 installed. If your overclocking it can you give me some pointers on what settings in the BIOS to play with. And maybe post your settings. Thanks

Did you ever get an answer on the change log for this 813 bios? I think I'm waiting until ASUS posts it.

Example, you have a 1000w PSU that is rated 80% (standard for most PSUs now a days) and your rig pulls every bit of that. At the wall you could be pulling up to 1200w. now you should never pull 100% of any PSU, but this was just an example and thouse numbers make for easy maths ^.^

thanks, that confirms what I have been reading. Yeah I kinda feel that people are throwing around the "that psu will handle it no problem" to easily now a days. They arent taking into account that you dont want the psu at 100% lol. The more I read the more it confirms my choice on 1200watt psu. Reading sli 570/580 reviews and watching the power consumption and comparing to cpu power consumption reviews, not to mention I will be overclocking everything and at least cpu on water and NO 850 isnt enough unless I want to be at 90-100% use and cause instability or kill the psu prematurely. Besides the efficiency is greatest around 50% it seems, I would like to keep my psu around 70% use. Now Im not claiming to be an expert, im just reading a lot right now, so CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG biggrin.gif I dont want to spread internet BS.

Dam this is off topic sorry guys, but figure it goes with our overclock stability which includes the motherboard performance biggrin.gif

so basically 3.8Ghz? your probably fine, but yes stress test it, you MIGHT even be able to go lower on voltage. Once you dial that in the cpu-nb will add a snappy feel to windows when thats overclocked, im at 3000mhz but work your way up slow, for 3.8Ghz for proper scaling i think people would like to see 2400mhz cpu-nb but the 1090/1100 can easily do 2800, max of 3000-3200 if your lucky. Also you might be able to get as much as 4200-4500mhz on the cpu if you have good cooling

So what would be the advantages of buying this board over the Crosshair V Formula, and vice versa? I'm wanting to get one of the two boards this weekend, but can't figure out if the price difference is worth it to buy the Crosshair over the Sabertooth, because so far to me it just seems that it comes with the X-Fi 2 Codec and nothing else of importance.
