Just got this board today ADD ME. Oh question about it how do i reduce the bios time. I had an option on my old asus board to reduced the time for the "press del key". at default it stayed up for 10sec but i was able to reduced it to 3secs i cant find that option on this board.

Well i had to dig up 45 usd for a used AMD Athion II X2 250 3GHz AM3 here in Norway but im a happy camper dude so im just looking forward to get this new AMD rig up'n'running biggrin.gif Gonna pick it up tonight.

When im at it would it cause any challenges if i install win7 with this cpu and switch it when the FX-8150 arrive?

The AMD IMC will not run 1866...you can with the e0 Thurbans but not c3 PhenomII's.
Only BD runs 1866 natively.

Go back a page or so and read my post about the FX cpu and turbo core. Turn turbo core OFF !! It was worth another 4k points in 3D Mark 06.

I have been telling everyone about this because it caused me some frustration at first, All you guys have likely figured it out by now, but for those who are just now getting the board, this should help you get up and running without frustration.

If you are not running ECC ram, you have to disable the feature, which by default is enabled in the BIOS.

Here is how.
Go to the advanced tab
sabertooth990fx_99.jpg

Go to the NorthBridge configuration:

sabertooth990fx_101.gif

Once in there go to memory configuration and disable Memory ecc mode, unless you are running ecc memory. It will cause random shutdowns without ecc ram.

Quote:
ECC RAM can recover from small errors in bits, by utilizing parity bits. Since servers are a shared resource where up-time and reliability are important, ECC RAM is generally used with only a modest difference in price. ECC RAM is also used in CAD/CAM workstations were small bit errors could cause calculation mistakes which become more significant problems when a design goes to manufacturing

Ecc Ram is usually found in servers, but without the extra memory module that ecc ram has, normal ram cannot function in ECC mode.

ECC Ram 9 memory modules:
MC728P50.jpg
*older generations of ecc ram had often had extra error correction chips located in the middle of the 5/4 divide, and some memory modules had more than just 9, but it is usually a multiple of 8 for non ECC and 9 for ECC.

Non ECC Ram 8 memory modules:
DDRMEM.jpg

If you look at the SPD tab of CPU-Z under correction it will tell you if you have ECC, if not it will say none or be greyed out.
