0402 is the original shipping bios - I had some issues with it, I'm now using 0901. I don't think it (0402) would affect northbridge overclocking though.

I actually own 2 sabertooth 990FX systems. This one is the cheap bitcoin mining rig running a $50 CPU.

Update: hard reset seems to have it sorted, dont know if i had some weird bios options selected that inhibited NB overclocking but bios revision had nothing to do with it. Either way its fixed lol Love this mobo, wouldnt mind swaping my 965 for a 960t though. Higher overclock with the possibility of a few more cores sounds good. Anybody wanna sell tongue.gif

Glad you got it going again, but you might still think about updating that bios. My board had issues with 0402.

My rig won't boot at all.

Ok my sig rig hasn't been posting so here are the basics:
Sabertooth 990FX
FX-8120
2x Crucial M4 RAID-0
2x GTS450
OCZ 600W

I just built this two nights ago. It was working just fine. I ran into some driver issues trying to get SLI to work so in the mean time i installed some other drivers. Everything was going fine until I installed my Xonar DS sound drivers and then no programs would open. Chrome wouldn't open, IE wouldn't, WMP wouldn't either. I wasn't too far into it yet so I decided to do a clean install.

After work/school I came home booted it up to double check to see if programs still wouldnt load and they wouldn't so I proceeded to go ahead with my clean OS install. I rebooted, went into BIOS to set it to boot to my optical drive. I couldn't see my optical drive in my boot device list. I tried rebooting, i tried a few different boot settings, mostly display option ROM stuff. I tried a few other various BIOS settings to see if I could get the optical to appear but could not get it to appear. During one reboot using the "hold down the power button" method it would n't show anything on the screen. It wouldn't boot at all. No POST. No memory test. No text. NOTHING! The screen wouldn't even turn on. I have two monitors. I tried both. I have two GFX cards. I tried both. I cleared the CMOS. Nothing. I cleared the CMOS took out the battery. Nothing. I cleared the cmos, took out the battery, switched it off, unplugged it. Put it all back. NOTHING. I took out all that again and the gfx and the sound. NOTHING. I took out all that again. And unplugged the hard drives. Tried it again. NOTHING.
My case fans turn on. I hear my optical drive spinning. My MB light is on. GFX card fan on. No HDD activity light. No signal on both monitors. I keep trying to reboot it it and it does the same thing. The only thing that really changes is the CPU LED wil come on sometimes and sometimes it won't.
I can't believe this is happening. I don't have too many options available for me to test out components since my tech is pretty new right now.

HELP!!!!!!
