just got home from the hospital for the holidays and would like to get it up and running before i go back in after the first.sorry for being lazy, but would like to do this. I do have the thread on instaliing the os on ssd and the rest on the hhd.

As far as I know, no special steps need to be taken with a Saberkitten. I believe it should support a 3 TB HDD (that is what you meant, aye?) and the board, by default, should run in AHCI mode, which lets you get the best performance out of the SSD - though that's easily checked in UEFI BIOS: Advance\SATA configuration\SB SATA configuration.

Ports 1-4 should be in AHCI mode., 5-6 (the on-board extra sata controller) is up to you.
Also, while you're there, be sure S.M.A.R.T. is enabled.

And your set to go! smile.gif

Good luck.

My 4170 runs with NB: 2400MHZ, and HT-link:2600.

well... the increase in performance in a bulldozer rig is not as high as in a thuban as you already said..... maybe i can shave a couple of degrees too...

i will try reducing the cpu/nb speed to same as you...

I got curious and looked up a 8350 review.

In the OC they did, they had it at 4.7GHz with a Vcore of 1.428 (or so (but no mention of the LLC's used or other voltages) and the NB at 2400, HT link 2600.

Let me now how the lower NB works out for you.

EDIT:

Duh! I don't know why, but I was under the impression you upgraded to a 8350 (that's why I mentioned Piledriver a few times). Lol, my mistake. But in your case, 8150, definately lower the NB speed to 2400.

hahaha probably, mid-february i will do some upgrades.... the 8350 is my major upgrade, and if the sabertooth r2 gen3.0 is out by then, that will be another one...

Hot dang, nice OC. What cooling are you using?

thanks i really tried hard for that one. i am useing xspc raystorm waterblock and i get temps in the 25c idle and like 35-40c max gpu is even cooler on the idle it like 20 but it does get up to 35c
my room is about 10c at all time i hate sweating

I'd like to get into water cooling, but just don't have the gear to justify it right now. Just built a new mid grade gamer, but also just bought a car (literall-- putting the deposit down tomorrow and paying in full and picking it up tuesday) so can't dump much into a computer. Later down the road when this system doesn't perform up to par.

My CPU/NB and HT are both at 2600 There is a significant boost in memory and system performance at 2600 as opposed to 2400 also the Physics is better in 3DII. I have the same results on the bulldozer rig I have. The only thing I found with this board is it doesn't like the CPU/NB above 2704 without ridiculous amounts of voltage.
