But really, the HPC Mode. Is it safe to use?

I've been using it since day 1. 5.0Ghz OC on my 8150, no issues. It will still throttle if it is having temp issues.

Hi, im ordering one of these boards tomorrow after my Gigabyte GA890 blew up! but can anybody here answer a question that Asus cant?

how many of the 6 fan headers on the 990FX are individually adjustably? my Gigabyte had 4 headers, 2 fully adjustable and 2 at a constant 12v.

it would be a hugh help if somebody could tell me.

Thanks in advance for your help.

They all are, but not individually. They are tied to CPU or Chassis. and those 2 are independently adjustable. If I recall its 2 headers for CPU 4 for Chassis.

700

Brand new to the OCN forums, and to overclocking in general...I would like to O.C. my build to 4.0GHz+ but have absolutely no experience with it. This is my first UEFI BIOS build as well, and I don't really know what I'm doing there. So I thought maybe I'd come here and pick up some tips from pros smile.gif

AMD FX-8120
Asus Sabertooth 990FX
16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1866 RAM
XFX ATI Radeon 6790
Corsair 32GB SSD (Upgrading to 128GB Crucial M4)
WD 1.5TB 5400 RPM HDD
OCZ 700W PSU
Cooler Master Hyper N 520 heatsink
Antec 300 case

And...that's my build, cable management is all kinds of not done because I'm going to be replacing drives and fans as soon as they arrive, but there it is. I'd like to see what I can do with it.

Sabertooth likes Golden empire black dragons 1600MHz@2005MHz.
I have these stick for al long time now and it looks like the sabertooth loves them.
With BIOS 813 this was not possible at all ,running with four 2GB sticks:)
