From the ROG forums - What Asus guy tells about the Sabertooth 990FX mobos:

"If you ever want to run fast 4 DIMM or use Win8 features, then get the 2.0. 2.0s will also get the focus of BIOS work for future CPUs. 1.0s will be sold out very soon."

Good thing I just bought mine! I saw the quantity dwindling on the one I bought that was a refurb on sale for $120.

There are some newer drivers on the 2.0 page, I'm staying away from windows 8 and remote go and this board though.

Let me know what you guys think,
Cheers.

Contact willup he found a water block for the Sabertooth

Can I check some temps with you guys. I have recently crossfired two hd7870`s and the temps inside my rig according to thermal radar have risen accordingly. After a few hours playing bf3 I saw my vcore1 around 51c. What are the acceptable ranges for the board? My pcie1 was in the 40`s range and cpu socket also. Is this still ok? thanks in advance. The max mainboard temp was 40c

Mine sits 48 after cooling down a bit from gaming so I'll assume you'll be fine.

Thanks, at idle like now an hour after gaming I don't have a temp on thermal radar over 33c. Was just wondering about the 51c v core mainly whilst gaming.
