Hello fellow Sabertooth owners :-)

I'll sumarize my experience with this board so far. CPU is 1090T:
813 bios needs 1.44 volts to run cpu at 4GHz.
705 needs 1.41 for same frequency.
Also, 705 needs lower NB voltages for stable operation.

LLC set to high on 813 sets chosen voltages and they are rock solid.
705 undervolts or overvolts based on LLC strenght. There are slight voltage variations but nothing major.

705 bios didn't set spd values for RAM unless specifically chosen.
Caused instabilities even with 1333 9-9-9-27 (ECC off).
Don't know for 813.

SSD capable of 500+ MB/s is only giving 400 on both bioses.
RAID 5 with 3 spinpoint f1 drives has lower throughput than single drive-> in 705.
Didn't test in 813 but i'm not expecting miracles based on similar SSD perf.

With 705 turning off write cache buffer flushing for drives causes system stalls every 10 - 15 seconds.
813 didn't have such problems.

Gonna try 901 even there are negative opinion about that one ...

Having a problem with my board. I cannot setup a raid array with my new SSD drives. I have it set to RAID in the bios but when prompted to hit ctrl f I can't access the proper RAID management screen. I get this:

Sorry, I don't understand ... That is RAID setup screen. Press 2 to define LD (logical drive) and pick your RAID level/drives.
