Sabertooth or CHV

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Since all the reviews seem to bash the CHV and i heard 30% of the people returned them because of defects.

Which board would be good for the FX 4 core 3.6ghz

I've just finished installing my 990FX. I love the new BOIS Still in the process of updating BOIS, and all my drivers. But from what I can tell. It's pretty good. Build quality is superb. No complaints so far from me.

I am not sure the Sabertooth is going to be the better board, the ASROCK fatality 990fx seems to be the best right now. The Sabertooth has a very similar uefi bios to the CHV and until we see reviews with the FX-8xxx's on it we won't know.

I love my CHV, I had to replace it twice but the 3rd is amazing, If you buy the CHv get it on Amazon, If it's defective they will send you another that day and you have a month to send the old one back, Very quick replacements .

Be sure to go into the "Advanced" tab of the Advanced bios and under Northbridge, change the ECC Mode to disabled. It will cause random shutoffs if you are not using ECC ram.

Here is a graphical how to of what I just said.

Its available on the Egg, and can be used in our mobos, especially since the sabertooth was really designed with workstation in mind, Generally when looking at ECC ram, it has an extra memory module on it that is used to correct the errors, so if your normal stick has 16x256Meg modules it will have a 17th module.
