Well if you're not overclocking then go with whatever is cheaper. But if you're overclocking, it's so much easier to do so on just 2 sticks. That's my 2cents.gif.

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!

Yeah that's what I did too. I didn't want to go through the trouble and it's doing fine on my current set up. (actually I'm using 120mm fan)

Ya it will fit fine. If it is in the way of your RAM you can slide the fan up a half in so it is out of the way. Vertical clearance will be no problem

Anyone with a Saber clocking a PD and want to share settings? smile.gif
post #3335 of 10135
Check over on the 8350 owner's thread and you may find some posted. If I have time later today I will post mine. Keep in mind it will not guarantee you the same overclock as each chip is different, but it should give you a starting point.

Lan is realtek drivers, usb3.0 is asmedia, no clue on the xi-fi, I use an uncommon sound setup and don't keep up on consumer audio setups.

hop over to the 8320/8350 page and read up in there. i am expecting my 8320 on wednesday so i have been trying to read up about them in there. from what i see the sabertooths are one of the best performing in there. getting about 4.8 for the 20's and 5 for the 50's

Like a dream, I was able to push 4.8ghz on air @ 58/59c on core at max load under 1.4v using med llc and high llc on nb. I do have my settings posted about in the 8350 owners club. I could likely have gone higher But socket temps were at 69 and I don't like overheat warnings caused by that sensor.

Right now I can sit @ 1.356v on max load at 4.5/4.6ghz and still deciding which one I want to sit on since they perform almost the same. 4.6 is only a slight margin better but adds 1.5c to my thermal putting me at 56.
