Current hardware is not disappointing at all. GTX680 that more than doubles the performance of the GTX 560 Ti while performing at similar power levels, Ivy Bridge CPU that clocks well enough and uses less power than Sandy while improving the iGPU and gaining chipset features, SSDs getting cheaper every day. Now's a great time to upgrade.

Complaints about Ivy Bridge are mostly unfounded. My CPU stays well under 70C at 4.4Ghz in a near-silent system with performance mainstream cooling. That's a win in my book. Also, it doesn't matter if a CPU runs hotter if the design can accommodate it. Running hotter yet using less power is fine by me. The Sabertooth brings many great qualities to the table. It's super customizable and super reliable with the best BIOS interface I've ever used.

There will always be something better around the corner if you wait, you have to pull the trigger at some point. And $500 for a flagship GPU is nothing new, if anything it's a lower price point than in years past (8800GTX Ultra, anyone?)

Hey I just was putting my sabertooth ivy bridge comp together and it seemed like the socket plate took a good amount of force to close and when I did a test boot the cpu failed. any possibility of having damaged my cpu or mobo? I installed it all correctly and lined it all up right. Just wanting to know if anyone had any similar issues.
Also I checked and none of the pins are bent.
I also just tried to boot the mobo without a cpu and the cpu error light came on then went off and the fans started to run. This is my first big build and I'm trying to figure out what went wrong....

If I want to turn on iGPU using HDMI without discreet video card, where in the UEFI do I find these settings? I'm going to use the mother board HDMI port.

(Kids getting my 680 while I hunt down a 690) Don't want them touching my new Ivy build with fresh windows 7 install. biggrin.gif

Thanks in advance.

well, I did it. I bought a Sabretooth and IB i5 processor...I couldn't be happier. Going from a 990fx chipset to the z77 is night and day. Love it

Thanks in advance.

mine worked natively, no settings required (Unless you turned off iGPU; it should be on by default)

Hey Sujeto......this is a CLUB thread not a debate thread. If you don't like this mobo then don't buy it. Who's forcing you?

Don't come here and push your uneducated garbage logic and waste our time reading a your phsyco babble. You obviously don't know how OCN works or anything about computers which is painfully obvious reading your replies. Again Club thread where those who own the mobo come to discuss it and ask question we may have amongst other Sabertooth owners.

There are other threads your welcome to reply (not that I will ever read again) or even create here on OCN if you hate a product, but not in a CLUB thread.
Your snide comments to Staryoshi were unwarranted. He's got more knowledge in computing than you hands down.

Your on my blocked list so don't bother responding to me I won't be able to read it. Hopefully a moderator removes your posts in here and reference to swear words.

I would debate what you've said, but there isn't any content worth debating.

Don't buy the board and move on if it bothers you so much, you have contributed nothing of value to this thread. (which is the Sabertooth Owner's thread, btw)

P.S. Alluding to swear words is not acceptable in this community, either.

On topic: I think I may remove my assist fans, as I don't particularly need them tongue.gif

I removed 4 case fans and the assist fans and turned down my two AP14s (with the H100) and set my other fans' speed lower. Got some nice silence going on and small FFTs are still around 55-60C at 4.2Ghz 1.11v or so smile.gif
