...I'm going to guess the exceedingly low CPU multiplier displayed is either a glitch or the CPU being in a C6 state...hopefully...
yeah its power save

I finally got my bracket from Noctua! (I threw it away because I thought I'd never go AMD)
I'm at 1,35v and 20x200 4Ghz full load for 15 minutes now and my temps arent passing 40c! (I havent applied new cooling paste yet... I still need to get my hands on that!)

How hot will this chip go untill its not safe anymore? My old Q9550 went up to 60 or 65 i believe.

62 read on the cores. the CPU temp of AI Suite has about a 10 degree offset. Happy OC'ing! thumb.gif

Maybe it's just my CPU's fault. Maybe it just doesn't overclock nicely smile.gif
What is terrible with this board is a lack of CPU/NB Voltage monitoring in OS, during benchmarking or stability tests :/ (besides using digital multimeter).
Oh! Well! I took some screenshots with my settings - maybe I just do sth wrong. Any suggestions?

Intel Burn Test was successful but those temps o_O What are Temperature 1 and Temperature 2?

700

BIOS settings

1500

Under load there is a lot of voltages fluctuation. In my old rig every voltage was rock stable (besides of course CPU V and CPU-NB V). Maybe this LLC doesn't help at all to make system stable frown.gif

Like I said... I am quite dissapointed with those results. Right! I am too tired to think about it longer smile.gif
Please, could you tell me your opinion?

Hi i have had the sabertooth for a good few months now and i love it! but im having issues with my Crucial Ballistix Sport ram (4x4gb) and i think ive narrowed it down to being ram bios settings but nothing ive tried works and its also only 16gb which wont work if i use 8-12 gb it works fine and all the slots work, and all the ram works

i was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the right settings for this board (sorry if im completely wrong with anything this is my first custom build)

any help appreciated thanks in advance smile.gif

This is weird your vcore schould not fluctuate that much , what version BIOS do you use at this moment?
I can remember that an early BIOS is way beter then the current ,its a bulldozer BIOS after version 705.
What is the command rate of the memory at this setting and how many sticks are you using?

Thanks for your hints!
I've read here --> http://www.overclockers.com/asus-sabertooth-990fx

A quick note, there are two Vcore sensors. VCORE-1 is for the CPUv, and VCORE-2 is for the CPU-NBv. You can see the temperatures on the right picture. Really cool to see how each part of the CPU effects the board. The problem is that there is only one voltage sensor, and it is for the CPUv. I would have liked to see one for the CPU-NBv since it is just as important as the CPUv


So Temp2 is for Northbridge or CPU/NB "chip"? As you could see at mine Aida Extreme sensor panel I have actually sensor which measures temps for Northbride and it was around 40*C under load.
If you could just briefly explained me what settings should I set in DIGI + VRM section or should I leave it just untouched ? A screenshot from your Bios would be apprieciated. smile.gif
Anyway I will try later your settings as soon as I have overclocked system using only multiplier.

Yeap I know that they should be stable. For example CPU Vcore - idle (BIOS) is set to 1.4500 V and it goes up to 1.5200 under heavy load.
I run on the latest version of BIOS 1208 with updated RAID Rom. Does it make any difference ? I thought you wrote a few post earlier that this new BIOS is quite decent.
As I read on Asus website:
Quote:
Version 1208
SABERTOOTH 990FX BIOS 1208
1.Improve system stability.
2.Enhance compatibility with some USB devices.

Version 1102
SABERTOOTH-990FX BIOS 1102
1.Improve system stability.
2.Enhance compatibility with some USB devices.
3.Patch system hanged when use AM3 1090T or 1100T CPU. ??? <-- what does it mean? smile.gif

I don't think CR of my memory should be any problem but I run my ram on 1T. I have 2x4GB Ram sticks and which are seated in DIMM A2 and DIMM B2 slots.

One more question:
How can I change CPU VID voltage from 1.45 ? I've seen truckerguy had has it set to 1.375 V IIRC

If you are using Thuban X6 you can try the 705 after this BIOS, Bulldozer was released and overcloking was harder on thuban.

look at this http://www.overclock.net/t/1035333/official-asus-sabertooth-990fx-owners-club/1540
quote from first post

I sware i was just think the same thing, but I flashed to 0813 it does seem right plus I had to mess around with my overclock to get it stable.
I was only running 1.536 on the 0705 and now i need 1.546 and now i have to put the MOBO on extreme settings for CPU power phase control.
I know 152 or 151 there a post saying that 901 bios hurts performance

HEY WHAT SUP um, im a newbee to this site i wanted to get some valuable info on the asus 990fx am3 mobo
OK im getting this board with to try out the new amd fx chip sets but im wonder if the Hyper 212 Plus from cooler master http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2923 will clear the ram (vengance blue)http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=40739&Sku=C13-5720 i will only be using 2 dims of ram
How many ram slots will be blocked off with the heat sink?? so far all i can say is 1 dim might be blocked off and i will have to use the green pair for dual channel .
SORRY IF I HAD POSTED THIS IN THE WRONG THREAD OR SECTION!
