depends on the kind, some engine block paints are made to dissipate heat, i found some once, ill try to find em.

Hi to all of the 990FX Sabertooth owners,

I am a little bit confused with the following: can anyone please confirm that 990FX Sabertooth has the same Power Phase system as Crosshair V Formula?

In all the specs it states that 990fx Sabertooth has 8+2 power phase design, but in reality it has 4+1 doubled design.

I hope this clears it up for you as it says at the top of the mesage ( note 2 ) the boards that are listed as a 8+2* are 4+1 doubled design The boards that are listed as 8+2 are 8+2 power phase design

The case should have instructions for the hot swap bays but all you need is a sata data cable from a port on the board and a power cable connected to the bay usually at the back.
