Just curious. Are looking at the bottom line as you modify the M/B settings, which is FPS, or are you just involved with obtaining the best GHz values? I'm asking because I've able to obtain 5 GHz and my board seems stable, but most of my games and just about all of benchmarks go south. My sweet spot seems to be about 4.4 GHz- 4.6 GHz. Good luck with your efforts.


My goal is to achieve the smoothest video editing possible with an AMD setup. It's strange though, although the 9370 and even the 6300 clearly do many things quicker than my 1090t and play back video in my editor more smoothly (1/2 of my goal) another very important aspect is loading and undoing effects, or simply editing and undoing/redoing.. For some reason the 6300 and 9370 stick/lag during the latter actions. I thought originally the 6300 was damaged because of this, but now I suspect it is something I don't understand that allows the 1090t to perform these tasks better. I have a crosshair iv I have been building for a friend and I am about ready to load the editing software and plop in the 9370 to see if the board has some part in this too. Does anyone have a clue what is happening here?

If your going to drop the 9730 in there. I hope depending upon the video cards or cards you have in there. You have at least have a 1000 Watt power supply in there they are not kidding about the 225 W rating. I had the 9730 then went up to the 9590.Both use I think the lowest I ever saw 219 w the max 226 W.Also the heat that they put out needs a decent water solution AIO or custom.

I think 1000w is a bit excessive but a good place to be.. I am running an 8350 clocked at 5.1ghz with 2 460s ocd to 930mhz.. and I am running a 750w.. but I will say the 750w is minimum for multicard setup

It's a good guess, and I am all for getting the most out of my ram and if it helps the problem great! However, I have two 16 GB sets I have tried individually with all three CPU's *geil black dragon 1600mhz CL11, and my new sticks *ADATA XPG Xtreme Series 2x8GB DDR3-2133MHz CL10. I have tried both and many different speeds from well below stock to all the way up to 2400 for the ADATA, and performed memory checks with no problems. Right now I am running the ADATA at either 1600 or 1866.

Agreed, I have a very good 700w rated 800w peak PSU http://kuroutoshikou.com/modules/display/?iid=1680
and I am only pushing 1 465GTX at stock speeds. I do have 5 HD's running, and the swiftech radiator but I have tried running just the two most important HD's for video editing and seen no difference.

If I was running Multiple GPU's I would have at least an 850W psu, but 225 W is just like another GPU and Running two GPU's with a typical CPU on 700W is not a problem in most situations so since I am only running one GPU, I don't think this is the problem. Plus this same problem occured when running the 1090t and the 6300fx (95w rated).

As for heat, I have it cooled by a Swiftech H320 (360mm radiator) and the CPU and Vcore1 idle in the mid 30's. Under load in Prime I have only seen it hit 61 once. typically it never goes over 57, and it takes a good hour or two to get there, and this is on 1.58v.

So after loading another version of AI suite and also validating with CPU-Z it appears my voltage was significantly lower than I thought. More like 1.53. I have since upped it to 1.49 and have a stable (for my tasks) 4.9Ghz on the chip. It is close to passing prime but will need some tweaking or a voltage increase. Frankly I don't care if it passes prime at this point since after updating my video production software I know longer have the sticky glitches. To my shigrin I can run the RAM over 2000Mhz as well 2400mhz was nearly stable and with some tweaking I can probably get there. Rendering times are much much faster than before, and the chip is staying very cool. CPU-Z reported 22C during validation, but I am not sure if I believe that since all other programs including bios put it in the low 30's at idle after running awhile.

Here's a pic of my setup BTW. Need to clean up a few cables, but mostly it is how I want it now. I switched out the two 92mm fans blowing up over the Vcores with a single 120mm. It is doing the job pretty much the same as the 92's with a bit less noise.

Hello fellow Sabertoothers. I have a pretty bad problem with my new Saberkitty R2.0 revision 1.01. It takes me at least 3 attempts every time to turn my computer on from a cold boot. I normally press the power button, wait, and... nothing. Fans spin up, lights come on but no display on the screen. Ill turn the computer off and back on and this time ill see the BIOS screen (where you have the option to enter the BIOS) and it will just stay there indefinitely. it doesn't respond to button presses or anything and I am forced to turn it off again. By the third time I am usually good, it boots to Windows with no problem and the computer is 100% solid after that. This is a bizarre issue that has been plaguing me since I first got my Sabertooth board, I originally thought it was DOA. I have had absolutly NO other issues with it other than this and Asus support was perplexed as well, they have no idea whats going on. I can OC with this board no problem and when I am doing restarts it boots without a hitch, its just cold boots that are the issue. PLEASE someone help me. Im also gonna start a new thread for this.

well... in the same fashion as my doctor who once told me "if it hurts when you do that, don't do that" just don't turn it off biggrin.gif In all seriousness, I am assuming you have tried to flash the bios by now, but it may be a good idea to try a different version than the bios you are running now... I've discovered over time that the bios version can have the wierdest effects even in windows on occasion... I had a game that wouldn't play for nothing, tried every trick in the book and then one day I updated the bios... and poof the game worked... try that if you haven't already tried multiple bios versions.

I'm on BIOS 1703, is there a newer one?
