I am new to this thread (I've migrated from MSI 790FX-GD70 thread as I bought my new mobo)
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
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
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.
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
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)Write test --> RAID 0 (128 Stripe width)Read test --> Vertex 3 SSD 60 GB
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.
