Hey guise. I just bought this mobo, and coming from my GAMA770UD3, i'm a bit confused. Is using the OC tuner safe? I tried to use it, and it clocked my RAM(which is clocked @ 1600mhz, but is limited to 1333mhz since i believe denebs can't clock higher) @ 1438 mhz. My NB is clocked @ 2.6ghz, would this help ?

Could use some help once again. Machine was working fine but now won't post BIOS. This build is 4 months old, I have had some configuration issues with it but had resolved them. Had not experienced an issue like this until today.

Sabertooth 990FX
AMD FX 8120 processor (8 core)
GeForce 560,
16384 Ram - 4 Corsair Vengance 4gb's, 1333, 9-9-9-24. d
Corsair GS700 Watts - power supply
Windows 7 version 6.1, build 7601, sp 1 , 64 bit.
windows install on an SSD Crucial m4 128 GB (firmware updated)

I have a green light and solid glow from the light on my power supply. It's also 4 months old.
Machine begins to power up, fans spins as normal but no display.

I have watched the board on power a few times now and I don't see any red lights on the board indicating a problem with any components.
When I press MemOK! the system also begins to start up but the DRAM light flashes but it doesn't POST. When I shut it down and restart, again no post and no lights.

I had tested overclocking the cpu a couple weeks ago, but the temps got up to 65c and put it back to default until I upgrade my cooling. The last few weeks it would reach about 58 c periodically when playing a game or watching vids. IF the CPU was the problem, would I not see the CPU light. I do see the CPU LED when I press my reset button on case.

I haven't pulled any RAM yet and would think I would have a red light if it was a RAM problem, but maybe not.

Any thoughts or experiences?

Update - I have reset the CPU and no luck, no noticeable damage or burns

re seat video card

check all power connector to video card

check that all power cables are properly connected

remove and reinstall cable to monitor

monitor turned on and power up

check that all 4 led on the motherboard turn red and then green

do a motherboard reset with the jumper pin see instructions and follow carefully then use the go button to start

do all fans try to start and do they stay on

remove all and put one stick in slot #2 try it then try the other sticks in slot #2

try again with slot #3

vid card - power cables checked, even swapped it out for my back up vid card, no luck
main power, cpu power, drive powered check
cables reinstalled on both monitors (dual setup)
dram led, cpu led, vga led, boot device led do not turn red and then green for POST ( RMA the board? - I will be calling ASUS tomorrow when open)
motherboard reset done with jumper pin, had also taken out the battery previously
all fans start, no cpu cooling yet Tweaky, this is definately going to delay me smile.gif
I haven't exhausted this ram test yet but I did do some swapping, I will do later and re post if it helps
I guess I am most concerned with the not seeing the POST LEDs

you must have a 3 or 4 pin fan plug into the cpu fan connector

with speaker attached to motherboard (lower right corner) do you get any beep codes

have power supply checked at local computer store

Hey folks,

Just joined here. I've had my Asus Sabertooth about 6 or 7 months now (replaced a severely budget board - Zotac manufacture, which worked well with a dual core AMD), and I got it I guess about shortly after they made their debut. So far I've done mild (very mild, I think) overclocking using only the UEFI Bios settings (I'm not much into the math of overclocking) and found it made it really simple to do, just by doing the auto, or manually inputting some multipliers. Though because I'm not too sharp on the maths end of it, I didn't do that much, I think I upped them to 18 or so, which yielded similar results to autoclocking it.

As a result, I've achieved 3.6 Ghz, but recently due to a PSU failure (it's going out on me, I get black screens when I try to fire up games, and have noticed that there is a corrupted file in the OS when I tried to roll back), which I'm correcting. My build shows a modular PSU that comes in in a day. I figured I'd just put it in the sig-build because it'll be here on Friday. Anyway, just introducing myself and adding my validation to the mix. I'll be posting pics as soon as I can find the USB cord to my camera... I just moved, lol. So all sorts of **** is lost in the shuffle at the moment. Can't remember what box I shoved it into.

Anyway, here's my validation CPU-Z style: LINKY!

It might be in my sig too, but I think I'm having a problem with the markup. We'll see if I don't have to edit this in a minute or if it's going to not display properly as I suspect. Thanks.

I wish but the CPU fan is connected to the cpu fan port 1 other fan are connected to the chasis fan 1.
No speaker on this case. I will get the power supply checked but it is new.

Remove the CPU and check it for bent pins or it could be the PSU not sending the right power good signal.
