Thats an excellent question. I'm gonna pick up an FX-8150 tomorrow and wanted to know if 0705 supports FX.

you got 2 options, find a right angled usb header or single slot water cooling

The new BIOS fixed the clock speed discrepancy, but I can't bot into Windows at all now because it causes a ton of BSODs. redface.gif

Now I have to download the old one on my phone and re-flash. mad.gif

Edit: Would someone please upload it to an http server (even OCN) because my phone won't download it from ASUS' sites. Thanks.

Edit 2: Never mind. Got it.

The Bulldozer is not yet listed in the CPU support list.
post #946 of 10103
Yippeeee..... Finally managed to get my chip at 4Ghz and running extremely cool and without having to increase any of my fans which are running in silent mode at the moment.....

Current speeds:

CPU: 4.04
RAM: 1894
GFX Core: 950
GFX RAM: 4400
GFX Shader 1900
V-Core: 1.44

On a slightly dissapointing note however from what reviews I have read so far it appears bulldozer may well flop........ still love my sabertooth though.... biggrin.gif

What a joke, I'll just buy a 2nd GTX 570 instead. This CPU was market as high end gameing CPU, and all it is a nice work CPU. Atleast the Sabertooth is still a great MB

New to using Forums, so I hope I don't somehow offend. I'm not sure if I should be posting this before I give proof of my Motherboard type...which I will try to do with this post. I've taken some pitcures of both my motherboard and a shot of my WEI and CPUZ Info and uploaded the Pic to this site. So Please add me to the Sabertooth 990FX owners club.

I have had this new Sabertooth 990FX for a couple of weeks now, upgrading from a MSI NF980-G65...Some in here say that the Sabertooth 990FX is the first Nvidia SLI capable Motherboard for AMD processors. Not so. There were a couple others using the 980 chipset for the past few years. I started upgrading from my MSI motherboard due to wanting a DX11 capable graphics card. I used 2 BFG watercooled GTX 280s in SLI with a AMD 955 for years and although they still played most games very well, there are a lot of DX11 games now...so upgrade time. With the new 580s in SLI of course I had to have a new processor next. I got the AMD 1100T and of course my MSI board wouldn't work without a new Bios...Well I bricked the motherboard frown.gif So, I looked around and the Sabertooth 990FX looked like the best replacement, being that later I could use the new AMD Bulldozer processor. At the same time, I went ahead and got 4 sticks of G.Skill Sniper F3-14900CL9-4GBSR Ram for 16 Gigs of ram and my first SSD.

Sounds good eh? Well, out of 5 or so rigs that I've built over the years, I've never had so much trouble out of ram. The MSI board ran 4 gigs of Corsair 1600 ram without a hitch for years. I just stuck it in set the timings and voltage and forgot about it. The G.Skill Ram I chose for this board has been nothing but trouble. The 402 bios didn't properly recognize it setting the timings correct, I think, except for putting it at 1t instead of 2t. I know the ram is 1866 ram but I thought it would be able to run at a lower speed until the bulldozer proc came out. Even though I had just bricked my last motherboard, I decided that the 705 bios might help with my problems...Oh, didn't mention my problems yet. The system will constantly BSOD or just reboot for no apparent reason. Sometimes even though the Bios sees 16 gigs of ram, windows 7 64 will only use 8. Some times the bios will not even see 16 gigs. I've tried it with only 8 and still have BSODs. I've run it at 1333mhz, 1600mhz and 1066Mhz. I've forced the Voltage at all times to 1.5v. I've increased the CPU-NB voltage to 1.25 and 1.35. I've adjusted theFSB to 2400Mhz for 1600Mhz....Well, back to the 705 bios. The new bios partially stabilized the ram putting the timings at 1600Mhz, 11-11-11-28 2t and I still have the voltage at 1.5. Question is, since the bios chose the 1600 speed without overclocking anything, do I still have to set my FSB at 2400 and increase the CPU-NB voltage? Should the ram be able to run at this speed? Do I need to use the Profile in the bios for 1866Mhz or should I downclock to 1333Mhz and then will I still need to overvolt the CPU-NB?

eek.gif That was a lot for my first Forum post! I hope I'm doing this right. If not just let me know. Thanks ahead of time for any advice you can give me.

^^ not the first to in-able sli on amd processor, the first to in-able sli utilizing an amd chip set (nb 990) the 980 was a nvidia chip set
and as for the ram, the phenom memory controller can only utalize 1600 properly, and I would stick with 1600, the cpu-nb is particularly usefull for overclocking the system because it will speed you up, but it is part of the actual processor so anytime you up it, you must up the voltage accordingly
