You will need a Phenom II to do this however.....

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.

Mine also mated up out of the box, but I think some people are still getting older stock of Sabertooth's that don't have a newer UEFI on them.

If my 960T was able to push the frequency up that high I am sure that this motherboard could handle it. All I can get out of the CPU's memory controller is 2000mhz 9-10-9-28 (which is actually pretty good for an AMD CPU).

thats pretty good for a thuban ill be putting in a fx 6100 or 8120 into it but some of the memory i review is 2133 and i would rather hate to do a review where i cant even get to rated specs. just looking to get some user specific reviews before i purchase

I'm running 16gig of G.Skill F3-17000CL9Q-16GBXLD @ 9-11-9-28-1T 1.65v @2133Mhz, it needed a slight increase in the CPU/NB voltage for stability.

The memory controller on the 960T should be able to push 2800mhz to 3000mhz unless you meant 2000mhz ram settings? which is good for the Phenom II's and the 960T (forgot the chip name lol)

BTW how is that 960T benching? I have not seen any posts on it locked or unlocked! be nice to see what she was able to do

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

hmm i think i might go with this board for my bench some 990fx board comparisons have it running right on par with the $250 UD7 which is rediclous as well as pushing memory up to 2205mhz

Ive actually been thuroughly supprized by the reviews of this board
