I had this issue as well on one out of three of my AMD machines and an OS re-install fixed it. The other two took the driver update no problem.

Must have been some software incompatibility one one of my machines. The other two upgraded ok so based on this i put it down to something incompatible on the one that didn't like the driver update.

These were a mixture of 750, 850 and 950 southbridges.

The machine that wouldn't even boot was a 750SB with a corsair R60 (JMicron) where the ones that worked fine were the 850SB which has an F60 (Sandforce) with the 950SB an M4 (Marvell) so i don't think it's a controller incompatibility as we had different SSDs (with different controllers) experiencing the same issue.

gee idk man.. assuming that amd ahci al already "trim enabled ready", i still think that the ms ahci drivers, seriously outperforms the amd ahci drivers...

boot times were longer with the amd driver
boot times with the ms driver were insanely fast (the windows logo couldn't even finish to gain shape)

is there a newer version for the ms ahci drivers?

yeah i went through there and set everything how it should be. and just disabled the external all together but still didn't want to go until i unplugged it completely. and i set it to the same settings as the 901 bios

Hi there!
I am new to this thread (I've migrated from MSI 790FX-GD70 thread as I bought my new mobo) smile.gif

First of all I would like to say hello to everyone on this forum. I have this feeling that I will visit it very often smile.gif

Right! New Asus Sabertooth 990FX seems to be perfect tool for overclockers.
Though, comparing it to my previous rig and mobo I miss a lot of things MSI 790FX-GD70 had.
Still I can't get used to UEFI Bios. It seems to be a little bit ... I don't know *chaotic* (that's not a good definition).
It's probably because I had been using my previous board for 3 years and I got time to know BIOS and almost all of its features.

I've prepared one screenshot for all of you who owns this mobo. There are a few questions that troubles me and it was more
convenient for me to make it this way.

SystemSpec2.jpg

All those questions I wrote at the screenshot makes me feel uncomfortably because I don't know the answers ;>
If you could take a quick look and try to give me an answer I would be extremely happy smile.gif

---

Another thing. I've read that new BIOS revision has been released. Having this 0901 (if I am correct ) revision I wonder if there is any kind of improvement
especially if this concerns my 1090 Thuban CPU?
I've also wondered about updating my bios with the modded one with improved RAID Rom version.

Below are the results I got, running write/read tests, being still on this 0901 BIOS rev.

Read test --> RAID 0 (128 Stripe width)

429

Write test --> RAID 0 (128 Stripe width)

429

Read test --> Vertex 3 SSD 60 GB

429

To be honest I was quite surprised with the results of read test of those 2x500 GB HDD's in RAID 0.
They were a lot better than last time I checked it on my old mobo with stripe width 64.
I am dissapointed with my SSD Vertex results. Transfer should be at least 100 MB/s faster IMO.
The 901 BIOS revision has 3.2.1540.44 RAID ROM version and I run on 3.3.1540.13 version RAID drivers on my Win 7.
If I like to change it to this modified revision should I first update my RAID drivers and then after restart upgrade my BIOS
or these drivers are just fine for this mod BIOS rev?

I know that I asked too many questions for the first time - sorry for this long post.
It's just because I am impatient and I want to start my overclocking process as fast as possible.

Try this modded BIOS. The raid from has been modified to allow read ahead and write back.

Welcome pendrago I understand that this board can be stagering at frist but know this this board is a beast and once you get a handle on it you will luv it here is what Ive been able to do with this board and my 1090T

338

that is my 24/7 OC

Ive pushed NB to 340

325

using just the mutiplyer Ive gotten it to 4.3Ghz

325

and Ive over clocked my ram up to 2100 Mhz and down to 1100 Mhz but the best part is if you push too hard you always have your menory button sets the board back to default no more using the jumper or removing the battry

Hey guys,

Long time no see! I've seen a few familiar faces here. smile.gif

I recently (after a year or two) got an upgrade for my system, the sabertooth and a nice FX8120, now I'm clueless with the new mouse BIOS interface and AMD overclocking (Intelfan all my life) Could someone push me in the right direction?

Thanks!

EDIT: Why does the multiplier drop under heavy load? I've set it to 20 but under load it goes down to 14. frown.gif

i got a weird problem over here,
i have 2 hds and 1 ssd, then i went to the bios and change de boot priority in the first screen,
since then i can get to the bios or windows,
with 1, 2 hd, ssd or not, without any hard drives, give me a black screen at boot, only control+alt+del works to reboot the system,
after i take de battery, change the jumpers, i get to the Asus Sabertooth screen - Press DEL to enter bios, but i cant go in, press del, all the keys, and do not work
after while the screen goes black again, whats the problem?

More information,
Boot Device led on
1 short beep from speaker

ps: sorry for bad english
