Ok guys unfortunate news. Before I put the liquid cooling block on my VRM is was hitting critical temps at 80 celicus plus. Now with max load its hitting 73 celicus max load:mad:. I might have to change my loop to find if it changes the temps I am right now Overclocked at 4.675 and that is the max I will go for now. My sabertooth for some reason the VRM is getting really hot I wonder if a bios setting I am missing over something because it should get that hot especially on water.......

pretty sure this is not the place to ask this question, so please direct me to the approp. place to ask it. dont have a cpu-z yet cause i only have the sabertooth and the bulldozer. plus the switch 810 case. i need to know where to go from here as far as the rest of the build. money no problem up to a point. watercooled. had the cpu and mobo for several months, but life got in the way. then i found out i have terminal bone marrow cancer, so would like to get this build up and going while i still can.

TIA

Just an update in case you were wondering what my build looks like atm. Sadly I have to RMA the board because something is wrong with the VRM. Even watercooled it is hitting 80 celicus while all over components don't go over 40. Im sure at this point it is the motherboard itself causing all the problems. Tried re-seating the liquid cooling block 3 times with not change in temps. Kinda upset that I keep running into problems however the rig looks amazing.

NZXT Switch 810 case heavily modded
EK Coolstream XT 360 rad on top and 240 on bottom
Total of 13 fans running
Custom white Acrylic wall installed and SSD mounted to it.
Just need to mod a PSU cover and the look will be done. Crossing my fingers Asus will get back to me soon and I can get my rig perfect

these are what i would put in my computer with the motherboard and CPU that you have

 

the use of water cooling is more complicated

i had a quick question for you sabertooth owner's. i'm doing a build for a friend and this is the board he decided on. i'm looking at this memory, but i'm not sure if it will work out only bing 1.35v? or should i just go 1.5v to be safe?

I use G.Skill Sniper (1600 mhz) ram which is 1.25v and they work great. I'm pretty sure ram that runs at 1.35v will be just fine thumb.gif

Of course it's not stable, I'm still on air, but it was stable enough to validate. biggrin.gif
I can't wait till winter....

Sorry I need to edit this, these have been my findings, yours may vary (revision 1 Sabertooth FX8120)

1208 bios: High HTTlink (FSB, Bus) was easy, high multiplier was not. I could run at 300+ httlink but anything over 19x multiplier required way too much voltage.

1304 bios: High HTTlink (FSB, Bus) is not easy, but now high multiplier is. Having trouble with 250+ httlink but 25x multiplier (maybe more) is a breeze.

I hope maybe this saves someone some time, or helps them make a decision. Have a great day.
