WTH is this???

someone correct me please

what i have read this is incorrect.

but pcie2.0 x16 is basically = to pcie3.0 8x from what i understand

Wow, I really love the color scheme of the new revision of the Sabertooth!


Got some bad news, looks like I'm gonna have to RMA my motherboard rolleyes.gif

I've been using my Sabertooth (R1) for the past year with no problems until today. I think my on-board audio chip has gone bad. I can't get any sound from the front and rear audio ports. I've basically tried everything like uninstalling audio drivers/resetting bios/swapping out front panel header/etc and still no dice.

Anyone care to share their RMA experience with Asus and this board? I know I'll probably have to wait about a month before I get it back. Does Asus usually replace the board with a new/used/working board?

Well 3 RMA with the my Sabertooth and I'm still wait on the thrid RMA, but now for the bad new. First 2 RMA was for the same thing and third is that Asus RMA department got thermal paste in the socket and it will not post.

EDIT
In the USA about 2-3 weeks total for each RMA.

Oh man, not exactly what I wanted to hear lol. 2-3 weeks isn't that long.

I hope my RMA goes through smoothly as I've heard it's either hit or miss with Asus. I can't believe they would ship out a motherboard with TIM in the socket... Since a bad audio chip isn't that big of a problem, I hope I get my original board back and not a used/replacement (unless its new). wink.gif

I've babied my motherboard and have barely pushed it biggrin.gif

Well If I get my original board back. I'm going to be really really really mad. The PCI-E slot 1 is only running at x8 not x16 and then when I oc just my cpu the PCI-E slot 1 will go out after 3-5 reboots.

I got memory modules with XMP profiles, it shows up in BIOS... Jedec -> XMP#1

Is there a way to switch to XMP timings or do I have to set them manually?

Do you have all memory banks used?, I'm thinking of buying the nactua heat sink. And i'm wondering if it has enough clearance for all 4 banks.

Thought I'd share a pic of my Sabertooth and 8120.

Still in the works. After a two day leak test, the EK res had a cylinder leak. So I bought a BP res. and I'll be using clear tubes. Should be up and running in a couple of days.
