Had to RMA that one, so now I"ve got Asus motherboard number 4 and its working. I'd be happy but there is another issue that's pissing me off.
My Asus Sabertooth Z77 takes over 60 seconds to post! That's unacceptable! I have an SSD boot drive and windows loads in 15 seconds to desktop and is usable, but I have to wait over a minute for the board to post.
Can anyone tell me if there is a fix for this issue? I've always loved Asus, but after this build, I may never use them again, its been a nightmare.

Hey man I was literally just in your shoes but for different reasons haha long story. But if you have the realtek HD audio software installed that seems to slow down your boot by 20-35sec (or so ive read). I uninstalled it on my system because i was having the same problem and it did help out a lot actually(idk that it was a 20-30sec reduction though)! its worth a try if your using the realtek stuff. hope this helps man! However FYI I've had this mobo for a few days total this is my second one I swapped my defective one today for a new one.....my current sabertooth is only a few hours old. Once you get this board running right its pretty damn SICK! or my my opinion at least! let us know what happens. biggrin.gif Also make sure your sata HDD is plugged into the proper SATA ports on the mobo!!!

I had to move the 2 dimms to B1 and B2, no other combination would let the computer post.

Interesting

Yes, they are in A2 and B2 now and working like a charm.

/edit: it's working in A2 and B2 after bios update to the 1403 version, before that, only B1 and B2 being populated would let it post.

I really want a Sabertooth z77 for the build I will be doing in 2 weeks. I have one important question to pose to all those who own one first:

Due to the case that I will be using for my build, Tt Spedo (got for free), and wanting to mount an h100 to the back 2x 120mm case fans, I will need to know the height of the back most part of the motherboard; where the armor is its tallest (the height of the back panel to the top of the armor). It is my fear that the armor may get in the way of the back fans/ h100 rad. If someone would please measure their sabertooth z77 and let me know the exact height so I can know for sure.

As this is an older full tower case, before h100 and sabertooth z77, it is next to impossible to find this information and I have been trying for 1-2 weeks. I want to join the club!! thumb.gif.

Again I would like to know the height from the base of the board to the top of the armor at the back where all the plugs are. (I suppose it’s only the height when the mobo is sitting flat with CPU socket facing up.)

Thank you!
