Updated myself also the BIOS of Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 to 2005 BIOS and surprise ,it s bugged.

The problem is that the CNQ seems to be broken ,or behaves as being broken.
I am using a daily use overclock of 4,3Ghz on my FX 6300 with the CPU clock management in Windows 7 via AMD Control Panel.
Practically i am usually letting the CPU to float between 3000Mhz and 4300Mhz.
BIOS 1503 does this bouncing automatically almost perfect ,it goes for the load to 4,3Ghz in all occasions.
With this BIOS this does not happen.It stays at 3000Mhz never going up when in load.If i use the same AMD Control Panel and set the clock to a fixed 4,3Ghz runs ok as it should ,but it s always 4,3Ghz.
So the new BIOS (with IDENTICAL settings from the old) has a thing with the 3000Mhz.

So back to the 1503 again ,the best used until now ,none of the other newer ones satisfied me.
Maybe the 2005 it s tweaked for the 220W TDP CPU-s or something.

CPU throttling works fine still on mine. FX-8350. I do wish it could drop to 800mhz like my 1090T would instead of 1400.
But it runs cooler all around, so hey.

In the past, above a certain overclock on the 6 core phenoms on some 790 boards, Cool N Quiet or CPU Throttling
or whatever you want to call it would not function. I never found an answer as to why. Same CPU and clocks worked
fine on both the 990FX boards I've had now. YMMV and such.

I don t know ,3D Mark runs with a score with older BIOS and with a smaller one with the new one.Intel Burn test also "keeps" it at 3000Mhz.
Maybe it s a CPU particularity.
As nothing looks new i ll revert to the older.

Maybe the 8350 is more fully tested in their lab.
Keep in mind that when CnQ is off in BIOS and not Always on the CPU may use only 2 clocks 1400Mhz and the overclock.Activating APM and HPC as well may remove some steps in between.
In my case i have more steps in between.Some overclocking clocks will show only the max and the minimum also ,like using 4000Mhz.
4,3Ghz is a sweet spot for me ,good performance ,decent power consumption in load and idle.
I am not using Turbo at all.APM ,HPC ,C1 are off.Only CNQ is Always On and C6 is on.

I don't know but will be watching.

I didn't even bother overclocking this thing. Other than benchmarks I can't keep more than a couple of cores overly busy, it's just
too fast to bother for me. smile.gif


My GPU is another story..

This ones do behave snappier with higher top clocks ,but indeed most of the time the load is under 50% on any core in almost anything i do with it and it s a six core only.I presume in overclocking the L3 cache gets a boost too thus the snappier sensation.
But i did get the CPU and board to get some juice out of it smile.gif
The board is better than Gigabytes stuff that i used ,so i am still satisfied.,maybe a better sound implementation would have been interesting having in mind the price.
At least they release BIOS-es ,Gigabyte has forgotten this habit.

I updated my R2.0 to 2005 and resume from sleep stopped working. Well it works, after a fashion.

1. Put computer to sleep
2. Wake computer, stare at black screen, everything seems to get power, drives, fans etc, but no running OS.
3. Get tired of black screen, turn computer off by holding power button.
4. Turn it on again, same as 2.
5. Turn it off again, unplug the power and all powered USB (mb sucks power from powered USB hubs etc, until all is unplugged goto 2)
6. Press power button a couple of times until green led at bottom of board turns off.
7. Replug everything, order is important, powered USB after PSU.
8. Press power button and viola, computer resumes from suspend.
9. RAAAAARRGH! mad.gif

I went back to 1903, works as expected with the exact same settings in BIOS.

Strangely enough in my case ,it does the W7 WEI score just fine,it does go for the max frequency in this test when needed ,but benchmarking some games show a decrease in performance(CPU stays at at 3000Mhz even at 100% load) as well as in the 3 D Mark ,so something is clear wrong in this BIOS.
CPU won t go for the higher frequency even when loaded 100% in most applications except the WEI !
Maybe this is why they say they increased stability with it smile.gif
Really going back to other BIOS-es.

hey guy¨s, i have one guestion:
i own now asrock 970 extreme 4, what i'm going to send warranty, and planning to chance it to saberbooth r. 2.0 (not gen 3)

saberbooth paÿs on full price 153€ and gigabyte's ud5 159€, what i would choose if i can chance my motherboard?
my asrock is now on second time going to warranty becose melting

and it asus is better choice, can it run 2 card crossfire and one pci slot audiocard (that is important thing) at same time
this is possible with gigabyte becose pci slot is last slot on motherboard, but is it pci-e x16 slot (black one) plausible to run x8 speed on crossfire? (using first and second pci-e x16 slot)
i was going to use this black one with second card on future (maby soon, or not)

depends on if your cards are single/double/triple slot but yea that 1x slot will be hard to reach either way. I assume your 7870 is 2 slot of 3 slots so no youl wont be able to run it in the dedicated 1x slot.
