since you moved have you checked out your ambient temps? maybe its just hotter in that room. just a quick thought.
anyway you seem to know your stuff so good luck.

Seem to is the key phrase here. Everywhere I turn, there's something new to learn, lol. Yeah, I tend to make it my business of sorts to know what I need to. I don't like relying on other people, but am sure glad when there are groups like this, that have more extensive and even variant experience to my own. Most of what I know, is largely just research done and listening to other people that pose similar questions.

Thanks for the good luck bit too. Okay, the update is as follows. I had the game crash, but since grounding(? - not even sure if it is, lol) and changing the voltages on the memory and also adjusting them to the proper manufacturer timings (they are the sort that uses less voltage incidentally) it hasn't black screened. I am now thinking that with the voltages somewhat higher, it was maybe trying to rob some essential voltage from somewhere else, like maybe the HDD and causing the crash. That I can't be sure of though, for some time with just observation and continuous strain to the system. But I managed to play for an hour and a half without a crash, and that seems to be a game issue, not my system because it didn't lock the system due to game crash, which is fortunate. I guess time will tell and I'll continue looking for solutions to lower temps even further and further stabilize any power issues I've already brought up. Thanks guys.

If you have a volt meter, you can read voltages in your power strip from hot to neutral, neutral to ground, and hot to ground to verify if you are grounded. H to N should be 120V, N to G should be near 0, and H to G should be 120V.

Hope it all works out. I may be offline for a while, I'm in the New Jersey awaiting Sandy's arrival.

Hi guys, just thought i,d post a good luck to all you fellas on the eastern seaboard regarding hurricane sandy, hope you all keep safe.
post #3255 of 10107
Just got my sabertooth 2.0 and have some question,
Sorry if its been covered before but I dont have much time on the comptuer in the next 24 hours and want to get this sorted soon.


How do you get the two brown pci-e ports to run in 16X in crossfire.
For some reason it will only run at 4X on pcie_1 and 16X on pcie_3 and both these cards worked perfectly in my UD3.


Secondaly how can you control the CPU fan headder by voltage only.
Iv got A syth 3Krpm fan hooked up to it and its only a 3 pin fan so with Qfan enabled in bios its always full speed and with it disabled its always full speed. The AI should makes no difference to the speed when I change settings.

Other then those two problems Im liking the board.
Ram will do better timings on same voltage
CPU will do higher frequence on less voltage
Compared to my UD3 R1

Anyone know if the Rev.1 board will get full Win 8 driver/software support from ASUS. I'm having to rollback to Win 7 as I've no Thermal controls, FanXpert etc... under Win 8. Bit of a let down as the store where I purchased this from said it would have full support under Win 8 mad.gif

You should be able to find the software you need from Asus and 3rd party sites, I have found win8 usb3 drivers for this board elsewhere and many of the Asus apps for the rev 2.0 will run on the rev1. The main software difference between these boards is the sata external controller change from the jmb362 sata2 to asmedia sata3, and the rev2 has more usb3.0 rear ports, but still an asmedia controller like rev1.

Also same amd chipset drivers from amd's site, same sound controller (ALC 892), Ethernet changed from 1111E to 1111F, drivers for the sound and Ethernet controllers can be found on realtek's site, just look for HD codec and Ethernet drivers.

As far as drivers go, I almost never use what is provided by the board makers, they are usually really old. As for apps, often the newer versions of them end up on the newer boards but still work on the older boards just dandy.

What the hell...ASUS took down the latest BIOS update for R2.0 from their site...

I was thinking of re-flashing my motherboard.

They probably have been getting reports and found something and that's why you're having issues with your overclocks?

It would be funny if their plan kinda backfired on them showing that the 1st version does better overclocking than the R2.0 ones. Not funny for those that bought the R2's but still... I'm sure they'll smooth things out because of the investments they've put into it already.
