I'm looking at upgrading my current MB to the Sabertooth R2, however, I need to know what kind of RAM will work. I've looked at the QVL and there are very few choices for 8g sticks. The specs on the board shows 32g is supported however the QVL only shows an 8x4 configuration for 32g at 1600...its obvious that this will not work because there are not 8 DIMM slots on the board. The QVL shows many options for 16g configurations at 4x4 but I'd rather get a 2x8 set now and be able to go to 32g later if I need to. Any help would be appreciated...I'd like to place my order before the end of the week. I currently run 8g (4x2 @ 1600) on a M4A87TD EVO with an 1100T.

Seeing the Toms hardware chart, I need to get up to a FX-8320, or a FX-6300, to actually beat my X4 965 BE redface.gif
EDIT:
Decided to go for a FX-6300
I think an FX-8320 or a 8350 is a bit overkill for me. blushsmiley.gif

I'm not sure about the comparison in the chart you mention, but most of that kind of comparison's are at stock speed/settings.

While the Phenom II I owned before my Bulldozer might have been better (slightly... mostly in single threaded apps), once overclocked - both Phenom,II to 3,8, and my 4170, to 4,8 - the extra bandwith on the PD/BD begins to show.

ok, so quick question if anyone knows.
I love my sabertooth, simply its awesome, and now i have acedntly fallen in love with windows 8, in between linux ventures, but my sabertooth r1 doesn't have the direct bios features for windows 8 quick booting and is shy a feature or two from the R2, so i'm pondering a upgrade, especially since i'm not worried about cor unlocking running a 1090t, (bulldozers cores are just not appealing yet) so here's my question,
If I send in my R1 on warranty, does anyone know if there is a chance of getting a R2 back from asus, or a way to exchange it for a few extra bucks??

Someone tried for one of his clients already and they wouldn't do it.

i just built a system for a friend and fired it up. the bios is acting funny. its not scaled to the screen and the only part that shows up is where the mouse is. i installed windows just fine and then updated the bios but it is doing the same thing. This is the R2 version with an 8350 installed. Any ideas on how to fix it or if it has to be RMA'd would be great thumb.gif
