ASUS Sabertooth or ASRock Fatal1ty (going out to buy one)

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Going out tomorrow to pick up a motherboard and these are the two that I'm stuck on. They are a dollar difference.

People say the sabertooth are very solid and ASRock make pretty wicked boards too.

I like the 12v +2 power phase of the fatal1ty and xfast lan to make in game latency lower. but the UEFI bios on the sabertooth looks way more professional. also the mouse port on the fatal1ty is quite a nice feature so as you can see i'm stuck on which board.

Help me decide which board!

Hi.

I'd go with the ASRock it's a solid option and overclock very well, very stable and with those 12+2 phase power you can get a good overclock.

The Fatal1ty is a tad better for raw OC'ing. The Sabertooth is still an all-round solid board though, wouldn't hurt to go in for that either.

I personally don't like the Jonathan Wendel's print all over tongue.gif

I feel for you Jonathan Wendels brand is quite annoying especially on a good mobo. It's looks like I may have to get the sabertooth because the shop is out of stock on the Fatal1ty boards. Should I hold out for it though?
