Afternoon all.

I've just migrated to the Rev 2.0 Sabertooth from the M2N-32SLi, as my 965BE needed a new home.

I've been lazy and done a two-click OC and it's currently stable at a tad over 4.1GHz, but a bit too warm for my liking (55C under load - 'old' Arctic Cooling Pro HSF) - will attach validation later.

My only issue really is that my SSD has nosedived in performance - was at ~7.8 in WEI, but is now at 5.9


I remember flicking through some forum posts whilst gathering reviews of the board and there was some mention of AMD chipset drivers causing this. I can't locate that post again, so was wondering if anyone has experienced similar?

negative dude... amd chipset drivers have improved A LOT since that post... try setting your SSD to AHCI instead of IDE... should do the trick...

nevertheless, do not pay too much attention to the WEI score...

Way ahead of ya on that! First thing I did was regfix to AHCI.

Still a lot lower than expected - the SSD is a 3GB, not 6.. but I can't see that being the reason for a massive drop. Sorry, I hate bottlenecks smile.gif

Edit: sorry to ask unrelated stuff in a post, but what's the accepted aircooler for this board? My GSkill clashes with the Arctic Pro. Need an economical HSF that doesn't mask the RAM slots.

i dont know if doing that thingy of AHCI on windows is the same that on the bios.....

you should've said that your SSD is SATA2... there's your 5.9 score

I didn't have the cash to afford a replacement until now, otherwise I would have had a redundancy of equipment as you've so thoughtfully suggested.
I just put in my Core i7 3930k chip in my Intel DX79SR motherboard. Everything works perfectly, and is now way beyond my previous build.
No hiccups, no errors, it just works.

I am sorry if I have offended you by being pissed off at my previous board.

You're right, I am wrong, let's hug and be happy.

Any one had problem with the sound just stopping.
Was working came back to pc after taking a break and head phone no longer have any sound.

Tried them in iphone and head phone work.
No driver problem and sound is set as default device.

Re-installed all the sound driver to be sure. Still not working so re-installed windows and that hasnt fixed it so no im sure it must be a hardware problem.
It detects the head phones being plugged in to the green sound port. And shows sound on the mixers graph but I cant hear anything. Using the apple head phone didnt work either.

The same thing just happened to me. I did everything you did when I went to troubleshoot: installed latest drivers/rest bios/etc and still the audio will not work. I'm pretty sure its the sound chip is defective. I just sent it in to Asus for an RMA a couple of days ago. You can either buy a cheap sound card or RMA the board. rolleyes.gif

Got sound working over HDMI into my computer screen then using the head phone adapter on that. Guess I can live with only 60hz screen for now and dont have time to RMA.

if nothing else try going to realtek sp? and downloading the lastest driver

for now i can run through my vid card or my keyboard nothing through my mobo ( back or rear panels )

Edit waiting for rev2 gen 3 before i take this down and rma it
