Seriously considering getting a 990FX Sabertooth r2.0 used FULFILLED by Amazon for $140. What do you guys think? The only reason is to play around since my Asrock Extreme 9 seems to hit a wall at 4.6GHz. Also, I just recently purchased a NH-D15 and will be sticking with that since it will have no issues getting me up to 5.0 Ghz assuming the chip and board can do it.

Good luck! You'll need it to get that 5GHz stable!

I'm at BIOS rev 2104 and have had no stability issues so I passed on 2301. This latest BIOS update (2501) says it enhances USB for some devices. Now this interests me as I've never been happy with the USB performance on this board since I got it, particularly when plugging in my phone and tablet. Most of the time it works fine, other times (not too often, but often enough) it has trouble maintaining a connection to those devices. This has always been something that has annoyed me to no end and thought this BIOS may address that.

My questions are this:
Have had my FX8350 running at 4.6 nice and stable for about a year or so and I'm happy with it. If I upgrade to the latest bios will it wipe out my OC settings? If so is there a way to just save the configuration and load it up in one shot after I flash?

Or...is this bios upgrade even worth it? I hate how horribly vague these updates are "Improves system stability" or "enhanced USB support for some devices"

Thanks in advance
post #8170 of 10135
my oc presets stayed within the bios update.
but you always should load optimized settings or rather default settings while updating.
if you have no problems I would skip it.
2501 solved the sleep issue I had. every time after woken up from S3 the overclocking was gone and multiplier was set to default.
for me that was a major issue which I dealt with several months because there is no changelog to tell you whereas 2501 already was available. you really don't know what you will get. at least it will do something. wink.gif
