haha thanks. Its not my dog unfortunately, just found the pic on the web lolol. I was able to decrease my temps to low 30s, high 20s by decreasing the voltage with an offset of -0.030 in the bios. So now my voltage is around 1.034 in the bios (originally 1.060 something). Is it possible to reach 4.0ghz with that voltage? Sorry, real noob in the whole overclocking thing in general. Really appreciate the help though ! biggrin.gif

Hello people! New here and fresh owner of this awesome mobo but now I'm looking for a good video card, two if possible.
I had my eyes on the Asus GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP and i was wondering if i could SLI 2 of them on this mobo. Seeing as the GPU takes up to 3 PCI slots, i'm afraid they won't have room to breathe, or even fit. And putting one in the first 3.0 slot and another in the last 2.0 slot just won't make it...uhm, right?
Also, would the Corsair TX850 PSU handle them? Don't plan on overclocking them too soon.
And no, im not planning on buying both cards NOW, because im well aware it would be a total overkill. I'm just curious if they would fit...future proofing knowledge tongue.gif.

Thank you

Hey guys

Have any of you solved the slow POST/BOOT on the sabertooth z77s? It feels like an eternity booting from sabertooth compared to z77 Pro

I switched back to ultimate, turns out it was just a gimmick with nice transitions lol

I like that case, what is it? I might upgrade form a midATX to a full ATX case, I plan on having a lot more fans and cooling in the future...

I'm seriously looking to switch from my ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe to this board. I orignally considered the Z68 version of the Sabertooth but at that time the lack of PCI slots was a concern. (yeah... I know get with the program).

Now that I don't have to worry about PCI cards (my soundcard was PCI) any longer, I'm back to eyeballing this motherboard. After doing some speed reading through this thread I am seeing more alot of good things.

I don't have any immediate plans to upgrade to an Ivy Bridge CPU so really, I need to sit back and consider if it would be worth the jump from the Z68 board to this one. But, it is tempting, if only for the aesthetics of the board.

The new Bios fixed it, the 1059 bios had the wierd double Post screen, the newer bios flashes once then goes straight to OS. Its so quick I have to be mighty fast on the old "del" button to get to the bios screen

the case is a CM Storm Trooper. CM has some awsome cases. I used to have a storm Sniper. it was a standard ATX case but it was HUGE. I love my Trooper, it's wonderful. Not positive but theres the Rosewill Thor, I was thinking about going with that as it's an extra large case, and belive it or not, it's at a lower price point. It doesn't have alot of the modularity of the trooper but it's alot roomier and I'm thinking about upgrading my rads.

It is slower than average. Only thing I could do to make it a little faster is not use the ASMedia sata ports. You save maybe 6 seconds without the ASMedia post screen.

oh wait, you all are talking about from when you turn the comp on, to where you hear the beep? Or from the beep to the OS? Cause my beep to OS is acceptable, not Star trek instantaneous fast but not 1980 apple 2gs slow either. Now on the other hand, from power on to beep, sometimes there is a bit of a delay..but hey, what in the world could be so possibly important that you need to be on your desktop so fast. Do you need to disable incoming nuclear missles from your desktop?
