I'm on 1102 and the only problem I seem to be having is getting my ram speed to cooperate, btw tried memok and it didn't help any. Any other suggestions?

I am using the 1102 bios. I have seen no real difference , with the exception that with the 901 bios would not wake my computer with my Rat 5 mouse. The 1102 bios seemed to of fixed the problem.

Right now, I have my cpu voltage at 1.41 and the cpu/nb at 1.25.

I think I read on an earlier post that this motherboard likes to over-volt if left on the auto setting. Depending on whether you're OCing your CPU and from what I read, you should be okay at setting the CPU voltage to 1.35 or something like that.

Was the motherboard running when you hit the button? When I did it while it was running, the computer rebooted and when it went through the POST, I went to my BIOS and it allowed me to up my frequency.
Also, are you reading the frequency in BIOS or in a software program like CPU-Z?

Blackice 800 is 1600 this is dual chanal so 800 x 2 = 1600

Ok now that one makes sense, guess I just hadn't noticed it before, but my clocks were off too. I enabled DOCP as suggested somewhere around 100 pages back, that seems to have fixed it. Thanks a lot for the help, you guys are great!

Hi guys, im having problems with my new Sabertooth board, since day 1 there is a loud, very high pitched noise that 100% comes from the PSU when watching movies or on some web pages that contain videos etc., it disappears as soon as I exit the movie/web page, I use speedfan which is fine until i click the config button then the noise immediately starts up again,
I had all this noise on my previous 3 month old Gigabyte GA890GPA-UD3H until it blew a fan header and I swapped to the Sabertooth, but with the gigabyte it was only heard when I overclocked the CPU voltage somewhat, the higher the voltage the louder the noise, my 1090T at 3.6 with 1.35 volts was reasonably quiet, but even with the sabertooth CPU voltage (or any other voltage) lowered way below defaults there is no effect and is too loud to live with, I've tried a new PSU and still the noise is there, slightly different tone but still there, very bad I know but I've also removed the Video card whilst the noise was there and no change so its not the card, so what is the noise and why does it happen!?
Any thoughts would be extremely appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Ben

What power supply are you using? It should not be making any noises unless you've been unlucky and got a couple of turds.

Its a OCZ ModXStreamPro 500w, it was bought with the Gigabyte board a few months ago and has made the noise since new, it never bothered me with the gigabyte as i ran the CPU at a low voltage so couldnt hear it, I cant even send it back as I had to extend the 4+4 power cable to fit the sabertooth,

I take it you probably don't have access to a third PSU to try? It sounds like it's probably the power supply since it made the noise even on the Gigabyte board. I had a PC Power and Cooling Silencer MKII and there was no noise. With the Seasonic I'm running now it's silent as well. If you have a friend who has a quality PSU they can lend you I'd give that a shot as it really sounds like it's the power supply. I'm not a proper tech guy so I may be wrong. But with my experience with this board I've not run into any noise issues and I'm running at 1.42V. Aside from the sound of airflow my rig is very quiet.

Hi all,

Got this motherboard a few months ago and think it's great!

Quick question...

I am running 2 VGA cards in Crossfire in slot 1 and 3 for x16 speed on both. Today I added a sound card into PCI-E slot 4.

Does this mean my cards are now only running x16 x8 as per the manual, as it states in this if you have devices in 1,3 and 4 slot 1 runs at x16 and 3 and 4 would run at x8.

I know the device added into slot 4 is only a PCI-E x1 but it's not completely clear to me from the manual how many lanes my GFX cards now have so thought I would ask smile.gif

Thanks for any help,
Chris.
