Does anyone have a link or way to get the 1006 bios for the R2 boards? I was supposed to do an install today with an 8350, but with the bios not available now, no options, I have gone to the asus worldwide site and the tw site as well, but it looks like they pulled it everywhere. Despite whatever issues it had, I would still like to flash it and get the system up and running, and reflash when they corrected whatever bugs made them pull it in the first place.

hi,
i am new to the forums and i really didn't want to read all 330 pages of this topic so i will just ask the question and hopefully get an answer wink.gif
what are the acceptable (safe) temperature values for vcore1 and vcore2 for sabertooth 990fx?
my setup:
MB Sabertooth 990fx
CPU AMD Phenom II X4 955 @3800MHz with Mugen II revB
4x 4GB Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3/4GX
GeForce GTS 450
i am using obsidian 800d case with all case fans (1 back blowing out, 1 on top blowing out).
my temps under stress with prime95:
cpu 57*C
MB 31*C
vcore1 67*C
vcore2 61*C

the vcore1 temp is usually ~10 degrees higher than the cpu temp. is that normal?

Just try and use the latest bios. Although it doesnt specifically say Piledriver support, it will probably still work. When bugs are sorted out you can then flash the newest official support bios when it is available.

I put it to them with regards to the first email I got stating that the R1 would not be supported for Win 8, I basically said that if the R1 did not support Win 8 then why under their support downloads is Win 8 listed with some drivers and software available to download, here's the reply I got this morning:
Quote:
Dear Valued Customer,

It is a beta support, there is just some beta drives.
We have a SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 version, this board suppots win 8.

Best Regards,

****

So now it's gone from "no support" to "some BETA support" to buy the R2, some after sales support this is rolleyes.gif

gents... i recently upgraded my rig... bought a noctua nhd14 and a second 6970... however i am concerned for 2 things...

temps... in HWMONITOR, cpu temp hits almost 63°C on full load... is that safe?? (im running my 8150 @4.7ghz with 1.4375v on bios, no LLC, 120% current)
NB/CPU is @ 2600mhz (no LLC, 120% current)

will i fry my cpu with those temps?

secondly... my crossfire...

If those are temps when using Prime or IBT then you're fine. 62c is the "safety net" max temp according to AMD. Their silicon and adhesives can handle up to 98c before degrading.
