I don't know how many of you guys actually use a fan controller with your systems, but I've got a heads up for you. If you've got a Sunbeam 30W Rheosmart 6 Channel Smart Fan Controller (PL-RS-6), like I do in mine, then you should know that when the buttons are depressed to allow your motherboard to control the fans via PWM, the indicated tach goes all over from 0 to 650k+ rpm and you get a 0rpm warning. No worries though, even though it has "failed" to let your motherboard take control of the fans, they spin up to their respective 12VDC values. I know I sound kinda dorky/stupid putting this out there, but hey, I gotta let my buds know why I've been going bald this last month.

Hay guys had a question for any one that is running an 960T Black Edition CPU on this motherboard. It shows in the bios if Core Voltage is set to default (Auto) then it defaults to 1.428 v and while running windows and checking CPU-Z it reflects the same voltage, but something weird happens when you run Prime95 or OCCT. When all the cores are stressed out at 100% then the CPU voltage drops to 1.24 - 1.3 Volts and goes back to 1.428 when stress test stop. also when i enable C&Q the core drops to 4x but the volts only drop to 1.24 - 1.28 Volts. I read in some threads that this is normal because ASUS Sabertooth cannot identify the chip correctly. Any thoughts>> Oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR thumb.gif

Use a USB flash drive formatted fat 32 , download the BIOS revision you want to use rename it to SABER990.ROM and put it on the flash drive plug it in and start the computer.

Running my Sabertooth for a couple weeks now, its awesome. Submitted my info to become a member here and sent, but here is a pic or two!

I call her "The Interceptor" due to the blue and red main color theme. So its all Policed out. I am pretty proud of this beast, and very happy with my Sabertooth!

EDIT: I resent my "get added to the list" form because I noticed it wasn't listing my name the same as it is on OCN. Sorry for the confusion!

Ok guys, I finally broke down and ordered my SSD's for my system. I'm going with two Crucial M4 64 gb drives that I want to install in raid. I'm looking for help on the best configuration on the mobo and what settings need to done in the bios. This will be my boot+apps along with a Seagate 500gb hdd. If you have this kind of setup, please help me out. I've never configured any hdds in raid.

You dont even need to do that,just unzip the file on to your c: then find the file in the bios and flash from that.
Why people feel the need to flash from sticks is beyond me........

When i connect all devices and try to start computer nothing appear on display. Fan on CPU start to run and nothing else.
Fan on graphiccard not running and CPU_LED is lighting in red colour.
Why computer isnt started? Maybe some1 can help

You need to flash your board to the latest bios to run FX chips,the stock bios doesnt support them.
You will need a Phenom II to do this however.....

Finally got everything up and running normal. I am not overclocking yet as it has been a long week with Christmas and New Year and has left me with very little time. Here is my CPU-Z validation http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2179749 and picture of my naked setup smile.gif681 Tried to unlock additional cores but came back with an black screen after reboot frown.gif so i guess i just have a Quad. Still it runs like a champ and now i am in the market for an SSD since that's whats keeping me down right now.
