Asus can have problems w/ Sabertooth R1/R2 (and other mobos w/ ASMedia USB 3.0 Controllers) supplies:

"It remains to be seen how the investigation affects supplies of ASMedia's USB 3.0 controllers. A PC motherboard maker we spoke with expressed concern over the developments."

I just returned my V1 after one day. Great board but could have done with a heads up from Amazon. They dropped the price the day after I ordered it! So I'm going to go for the revision 2 instead. I'm sure it's not much different but still... I'm fussy.


Just looking at some of the physical differences.
The heatsinks are now brown rather than green. I'm a fan of that.
The Rom in the bottom left of the R1 has gone. Not sure where.
There is an extra microswitch in the bottom right of the R2.
It also seems to have an extra pin out on the bottom.
A few solid state caps have moved.
Fan pin headers are now brown rather than white.

Obviously there are the main differences like the new BIOS flash button on the IO panel. And a change to some other components. I'm sure someone that has bothered to read about the differences rather than just look at the pictures can be a lot more informative than me.

Bottom line. Brown = more good.

Thanks guys for all the info but now i am totally confused, today when i got home from work my PC had locked up yet again so i rebooted on re booting i was made aware that i needed to do a windows update as the system is still new and therefore required updates.

consequently i did download the files that it said i needed then ran through the rig-moral of installing them only to be told i needed to reboot, i thought ok then why not, assuming nothing would change so i did.

Since that point forward my PC has not cut out, turned off, frozen etc (touch wood) as i said totally confused but at the same time now over the moon because i can finally use my PC for the tasks for which it was intended.. YAHOOOO!!!! smile.gif

couple of extra pics



aboout 5 mins later i got the first hang up of the day Grrrrrr!!!!!
just got home for lunch and thought i would upload this info as well if it is of any use...
Wow your cpu seems starved for power! 1.128v! I couldnt run 6 cores stock at that voltage. Not informed about BD,and I may be wrong, but I would think you need at least 1.35v-1.38v based on my experience w/ thuban. Try bumping your cpu volts. Also try turning off turbo, cool n' quiet, and spread spectrum. Can somebody with BD please chime in.

why turn off spread spectrum??

No, I do mean Spread spectrum. LLC helps with voltage droop and usually supplies a more consistent voltage to cpu. Like i said familiar with thuban and hope somebody with BD can help better. All oc guides for thuban and deneb suggest turning off all i'd mentioned previously.

well yeah... turning all the other options like cool and quiet are quite a good choice...

i have spread spectrum on, because it has to do something with the VRM's i guess... i have a BD and up until now, no BSOD nor freezing... MB temps are around 31ºC and 35ºC on load...

I've tried messing with all the phase options and LLC options Sabertooth bios has with some of my oc's, but haven't figured them out. I leave them at default and have the best success.

No, spread spectrum controls EMI. Having it enabled compromises your system's performance and stability. Disable it if you're housing your system inside a case or if it's outside and you don't have a bunch of electronics all around it that may give it interference.
