I was able to boot windows and run Cinebench with a 4800mhz OC on my FX 4100 but not stable enough to run Prime95. I really need to know how to fine tune my settings but there aren't any guides or people willing to give up their stable settings. I feel I'm close but I feel my memory is the culprit. I have 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 but they won't OC for ****. Then again, it may just be a voltage issue. I put 1.55 to the VCore and I"m not willing to push more than that. At least until I find out the actual limit for this cpu. This mobo, however, is the OC'rs dream, if you understand all that mumbo jumbo.thumb.gif

I'm on the same boat, FX-4100 with Vengeance 16GB Quad Channel Kit DDR3 1600 MHz 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 + Corsair H80 liquid cooler, Can't go beyond 4.65 GHZ anything beyond that BSOD.

Did you choose the DDR3-1600 Mhz option in th BIOS? I had to choose DDR3-1333 Mhz to be stable anything else get a BSOD. I'm getting adequate cooling though, x2 120mm fans upfront, x1 140mm sucking air up top, and x2 120mm push-pull config on the radiator my temp don't go pass 31c .

I think I can get 4.8 GHZ no problem just need some guidance smile.gif

Same here. We are almost there. I'd be more than happy with a stable 4.7, 4.8. Hell, I might even keep the 4100.rolleyes.gif

Good morning. Over the past weekend, I needed to upgrade my current motherboard - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - with an SLI compatiable one. After doing some reasearch, I decided to go with the Asus Sabertooth. Not only because of the SLI features I needed, but because of the OC rating. After ripping my watercooling system apart and mounting the board, and reassembling everything, I found out that I had to do a fresh install of Windows 7 (Ultimate x64) . TG I had a backup of my system before hand After loading windows and ALL of the patches, I installed all the drivers from the CD and even checked the web page for bios and or system driver updates which I did.

The problem that I'm running into now, is windows seems very sluggish when loading. What use to be a couple of minutes from pushing the start button to loading windows and all of the initial startup files, now seems to be taking almost 7mins to just load. Thinking it was my hard drive I cloned the drive but have the same problem. I've checked the bios and have even set it back to the defaults (except for the fan options seeing that I don't have any) and I get the same problem. I eventually want to get this puppy up and running and even try out some OCing if I ever get that far. If not looks like an RMA and back to HyperSLI & M4A89GTD again >.< , which I'd hate to do. Thanks in advance...

System -

* Asus Sabertooth 990FX (current bios)
* AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz
* 16GB RAM - (2x) G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3- 12800CL9D-8GBRL
* Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB SATA drive

I just noticed that my validation didnt have my ocn name on it, updated:
2145590.png

Also, I haven't searched yet... but is there a way with this board to ignore no cpu fan being installed? For some reason the stupid thing wont spool down any and I want to move the fan I have hooked up to that header to a CHA_FAN header, but it will prompt me to hit F1 every boot...

Also, I'm wondering what our PCI spacing is, I want to guess 2.4" but I am not positive. This is in regards to THIS crossfire parallel bridge.

Finally was able to achieve a stable OC of 4600mhz. Over 4 hours stable on Prime95. Still thinking there is more room but I'll stick with this for now.

I'm on water so only have one fan connected to the mb, there are settings in the bios you can set the fan headers to ignore and it wont prompt you about them.

I know I have not been on much since the OCN change and I am sorry about that just doesn't look and feel right I don't know why I am so turned off by it but I found out something that I wanted to share

I don't know 100% why but my 8150 likes the VDDA volt turned down from auto which was 2.49~2.50 and I got the most stable 5ghz OC out of this chip by turning down a volt setting lol if you can believe it!!! I
am sitting at 2.42 at the moment and able to prime at 5ghz and better yet play games and BF3 loves the higher clocks I guess as my Frames shot up to avg of 75fps on max ultra with HOBO on and my min only hit 52fps from what I saw sorry
did not record it but mite for the tube!

So to try and sum it up if your chip is oc'ing ok but you want a little more out of it try lowering (lol) the VDDA volts (in the bios not AI suite) and post if it worked maybe it is just my chip but anyone that trys it and it works post it

Hi Guys,

Sorry if this has already been covered but I need advice on what processor to get for my sabertooth 990FX S/L.

Im thinking of getting an Intel i5 (below)

Intel Sandybridge i5-2500K Unlocked Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155)

Would this be compatible? it appears to be the best one in my price range but processors were always my weak point!

Or is there another processor that you recommend around £150/$200 price mark.

Many Thanks smile.gif

sorry man but the Sabertooth 990FX will only run AMD cpus.
if you want to run a Intel cpu, look for a Intel Sabertooth Motherboard.
