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

Email them asking where the rev2.0 1006 bios went which is the Piledriver/Vishera/6xx/83xx support update. Since you know, they insisted at first the rev2.0's were needed for it, yet now only the rev1's have the bios for them. : /

wth is going wrong?


PCI-E slots will sometimes downclock to save power. When something 3D is being displayed or the GPU enters the fastest PState the slot will clock back up to x16 2.0

It wont always downclock, it depends on your settings

Hi everyone,

Since a few weeks I'm the proud owner of one of these green kittens.

I'm watercooling my FX-4170 chip and cpu temp doesn't seem to be an issue anymore (max under P95 I've seen so far doesn't break 50 C - a session of Skyrim never gets the temperature higher than 40 C).

The temperature that has got me scratching my head right now is Vcore-1. When stress testing my overclock and that one hits 57ish C for 20 / 30 minutes, my CPU starts throttling down.

Maybe this has been asked already, but does anyone know of a waterblock / vrm + nb waterblock combo that would fit the 990FX Sabertooth?

Here's a few pictures of my monster:

A month ago there still wasn't one. They only had it for the Intel Sabertooths. You can get universal fits but I became confused to which one to get that I didn't pursue it anymore.

NB/CPU is @ 2600mhz (no LLC, 120% current)
will i fry my cpu with those temps?
secondly... my crossfire...
first pcie slot is running @8x according to gpu-z
third pcie slot is running @16x according to gpu-z
wth is going wrong?

is that cpu temp or core temp? and can anyone provide input to whether the fx series has the same offset in cpu and core temps like the phenom's did?

Hi,
I have a little dilemma I have the sabertooth R.1 and I currently have 2x500gb hdds in raid0 an I'm thinking of moving my os to a ssd but in bios it doesn't allow me to switch any controller to AHCI without loosing raid... my question is this ... will it be a problem with the ssd while the controller is in raid mode...?

Raid does act as AHCI mode on amd controllers (just with raid options), so no need to switch from raid to ahci, but I am unsure if trim is supported yet on the amd raid side which you would want for ssd's.

Ah well, I guess I'll try a 60mm fan right above the vrm section first before figuring out which waterblocks might do the trick (already did some research, but found no clear data).

I have enough room to fit a 60mm fan between my top radiator and the motherboard panel in my FD Arc Midi, and who knows: maybe the small amount of airflow *could* help a bit.

I've not been watercooling that long, and having the extra temperature sensors the Sabertooth has still takes some getting used to: it just freaky to no longer have either the cpu or the gpu as the part which runs hottest.

Maybe this was also the case in my M5A99X EVO, but that lacked the sensors to tell me.

Cheers!
