Ive always wanted to try this, but I can use an nvidia card as well as ATI together on the sabertooth boards right?

@Blatsz32, did you ever solve the missing AI Tweaker options problem? I am experiencing the same thing right now. I cannot boot with anything other than stock settings. Also, the "Turbo ratio" and "Internal PLL overvoltage" options do not show up under AI Tweaker like they are supposed to. I have tried updating to the 1206 BIOS, but that did not work. I have done everything to reset the CMOS settings other than remove the battery (because removing the thermal armour would be a nightmare). Any advice would unbelievably appreciated. This issue is driving me insane!

So far nothing on the outside seems to have changed though. Things run smooth except for my ongoing issue that is: Occasionally some program (can be anything from explorer to a game) hangs for half a minute for no reason while the HDD Led stays lit. I'll make a separate post about that issue maybe. Its getting more and more annoying but it only happens 2-3 times a day so its kind of hard to reproduce. I somehow suspect the RAID1 implementation from Intel.

I just updated my BIOS with this BIOS flashback method. Its super easy LOL!! But no improvement in booting time frown.gif

are those the programs you are looking for off AI Suite? If yes then download them off the Asus site, go to the V Gene though. That boards software is a lot more expansive than the Sabertooths. As far as overclocking from the OS enviroment, I don't think it sticks in the bios. You can overclock it in windows but to keep the setting you have to change it directly in the BIOS. When you OC in the Windows enviroment you are in essence just testing limits etc without having to go through the reboots.

Let me know if thats what you are looking for..wait are you talking about not having the options in the BIOS? Someone else had that issue and had to RMA.

That happened to me, and I tried everything under the sun to fix it. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything that did and I had to RMA. Quite a few people had that problem, and I've found no solution as yet... Can you confirm that these settings are missing in the bios?

Which SATA port are you plugged into WivZ? LOL, Zep again..thats who had the issue..hopefully you are talking AISuite and not Zeps issue.

take a snap shot of the BHios, Zep will tell you if you have to RMA it..I think he posted his..it was wierd to see no options

Haha we always do that! tongue.gif

Zlotm, what is your memory configuration? I had the same problem in addition to my B1 and B2 slots not working. I'm curious if that is related.
Like Blatsz said, take a screenshot of your BIOS (F12) where the turbo multiplier and pll voltage settings usually are.
If you have the same problem I will contact asus and let them know a lot of people are having the problem. Hopefully you don't have the problem though.

Memory config: 1 kit of F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR in slots A2 and B2. The memory slots seem to be working fine (other than the cannot overclock issue, but that seems to be firmware/software related).

I was talking about the settings in the BIOS itself, as seen in screencap below, but I might give the software a shot and see what happens.

450

My system will not boot with the X.M.P. profile seen in the screencap. I only switched to the X.M.P. setting to show that the couple setting are not showing up where they should be.

Edits for clarification.

Ok I had the same problem and had to RMA, unfortunately. I have found no solution and asus said RMA was the solution. Sorry to break it to you. I'm still waiting for mine to be repaired. If you don't want to overclock it works fine but I didn't find that acceptable.
Can you try the slots B1 and B2 for me? I want to see if the memory controller is involved so maybe asus can hammer out what the problem is.

Edit: I guess that you don't have a bad controller based on your edit, but can you try the other slots to make sure? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... Here is a forum of people with the same issues: http://rog.asus.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-14888.html?s=02aea1f8f499319a3e65df96c326a24c AND: http://www.overclock.net/t/1256298/sabertooth-driving-me-crazy/30
Seems like people are also having RAM trouble with it.
Apparently the Maximus Gene IV is having the same issues.
