Love the card... 2 fans and real over clocking potential. My clocks were 7200 ram and 1100 gpu without changing voltages. Future proof.

I'm going for the EVGA FTW, ~$420. I don't plan to overclock the video card.

My question is when I Reboot the machine I get a CPU fan error and it appears that it cannot read the rpm and them the rpm goes in and out (I am using the stock cooler and paste, does this just push straight on and snap in or do I need to turn it to smear the paste?) and I am not sure if this is an issue with the sabertooth or if my old case fan is causing the problem? Any help on all of these issues is greatly appreciated.

Does anyone have any insight?

Have you tried a different fan?

Here is the issue im going to guarantee you ran into...when the board first came out it was NOT on the QVL for the Sabertooth and that was apparent by the missing xmp profile in earlier bios's since 1015 there have been TWO xmp profiles for Trident X one xmp profile is for ddr3-2401 speed (which btw is NOT the profile to use) and the other is for ddr3-2399 (this is the one to read.) The later of the two profiles is the one you want to use as it is the proper xmp profile...IMO they should remove the 2401 cause it does not work at all (atleast for me.) Even tho it says 2399 it reports as 2400 here is a shot from cpu-z showing the xmp profile being used and 2400 speeds:
456
i have a 3770k, corsair H100, plus that ram and it works fine in xmp mode. Who you should be upset with is ASUS/yourself for not trying the 2399 xmp profile which is the recommended one. Same with the user above....these ram work just fine with xmp.

Decided to give the G.Skill DDR3-2400 Trident X 16 GB another chance, btw I'm using Bios 1206 (the latest), loaded bios defaults (to get rid of my 4.5 OC) and set XMP profile #2 as suggested 450

Windows loaded and I fired up Intel Burn in test (very high) and it completely FROZE my system in the second pass, I hit reset and it froze again while loading windows....Reset again, and froze again loading windows....

went into the bios raised the Dram Voltage to 1.75, and windows loadedfine , ran IBT and passed 10 runs:
370

so all i can say it's the MY experience with these using both XMP profiles it's not good, i can't get these to run stable with XMP 1 or 2 without further tweaks (raise Dram Voltage to1.75), I also tried manually raising VCCSA to 1.25V (i read that in the g.skill forums), and no luck....so basically I'm getting the same experience they got on this review: G.SKILL Trident X 2400MHz Ram Review - not up to enthusiast grade , I wanted to like this ram....i was kinda expecting it to work using just the XMP profile like other people here say they do, and they didn't.... Not sure what's the deal here, but since i switched ram to the Corsair Vengeance 1866 1.5V 4 x 4 GB Ram Kit all is working as expected even with a 4.5 GHZ OC on the CPU.

thats MY experience, seems like other people here have them running at 2400 with just XMP 1 and XMP 2 profiles just fine.....like I said before my only goal is to share MY experience so other people can save time and frustration....

Thank you Atin, very helpful to those in the situation you were in. I was going to suggest to those that were having the prob to raise RAM voltages but it just didn't seem like a great idea to pass 1.65v. Anyway, I think it's still great that you posted your experience, it maybe a resolution for peeps that are running into this issue. +rep

Sounds like you got some bum sticks then. Have you gotten them replaced by G.Skill? You do not/should not need to touch the voltages to run at those speeds. Getting a bum product happens in electronics, if you look back i got a Sabertooth that would only run my vid card at x4 speed instead of x16. I replaced the board and am awaiting rma for the broken one then will help a friend with the board they send me back. This is my first time with G.Skill i got them just as a switch up, previously i had Dominator GT's (have always been a corsair guy for ram) and so far i have seen no difference from the two companies id buy from either again. I would make G.Skill replace the sticks and your problem should be solved.

How do you take a screen pic of your BIOS?
