I purchased the Sabertooth and the FX-4100 recently and they went together like peas and carrots. No bios update needed, though I did it later anyway. The FX processors work fine on this board right out of the box. I am not sure what the issue is with above, but just thought I would throw my 2 cents out there about this.
What bios did your board come with?
and just a fyi some places are selling older boards still, like from manufacturing date around 6/11 to 9/11 which came with the 402 bios where as you need the 813 or 910 to run this board right with the FX chips!
The 705 bios sucks do do with the FX chip from all I have talked to, when I tried it it wouldn't let me OC the ram out of 1333mhz and I have 2000mhz ram
