Hey folks I'm looking for opinions from some the sabertooth owners in the club as to what their experience and thoughts are on a few things. I recently bought am ASUS Sabertooth rev 1.0 board from an OCN member in the market place. I also bought AMD Phenom II 1055T and MSI 870A Fuzion w/ Antec Kuhler 620 from another member. My current rig is a gigabyte 990FXA UD3 mobo with an FX-8350 at it's core. I am wondering how others feel about how I should set things up. Specifically whether I should A: Put the 8350 on the Sabertooth and put the 1055T on the Gigabyte B: Leave the 8350 on the Gigabyte and put the 1055T on the Sabertooth C: Leave the 1055T on the MSI and buy either another FX series or APU and put it on the gigabyte

I am in a quandary as to what I should do with these gems! Please help!!!

Meh... I don't use the USA one anymore. I always use global. The USA is always missing something and slow about updating their BIOS list for some reason.

I would say it depends on what you want to do with them and how high you want to clock them. Slightly different from you but I went from a M4A785TD-V Evo to Sabertooth with my 1055T. The first board I could only get the chip to 3.8 before it started throttling and I couldn't find the setting that was doing it to disable. Then with the Sabertooth I was able to hit over 4 ghz easy. And now I have a 8350 chip in the Sabertooth and can get 5 ghz. I think folks on the UD3 are having the same issues as I did with my first board and seeing the throttling around 4.6 to 4.8 ghz.

So if you do renders or folding, I'd put the 8350 on the Sabertooth and get it as high as you can. If you're going to do benchmarks for fun or competitions, then put the 1055T on the Sabertooth because they score better in benchmarks.

For gaming... I saw no real world difference. I think you'll only see a difference between the chips if the GPU isn't handling your settings well. So for gaming I'd just pick the board for aesthetic reasons.

Just my opinion.

After some mix up with Asus, I was assured my replacement board would be shipped today. Only thing I received was An email with shipping label, no instructions or updates on rma. Oh and my name and phone was skewed on label, but upon entering info on website it popped up???? Not a great 1st experience with Asus customer support. Hoping I'll get it.
