[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Owners Thread/Club - Page 176

post #1751 of 6915
I am looking for any board that will run 32GB's without having to opt for the higher binned C206/Xeon parts.
I give release and fix later developers another month.

What's sad is my friend bought the Intel DZ77 and purchased the " tested " and approved 8GB sticks from Corsair and even the once mission critical stabilitiy Intel is known for, is just another platform that releases products with little QA testing.

Funny how the Reviewers slways get working products, but then again they are scared of large RAM footprints.

I love the Z77 Sabertooth in a 1U, everything about it perfect except for the inability to run 4 x 8GB sticks.....

Fingers Crossed.

I'm considering this board or the Gigabyte g1 sniper 3 but after reading several posts inside the official g1 sniper 3/m3 owners thread, with all the problems people have had because of missing bios updates and fixes iv'e made up my mind and i'm going with sabertooth z77.

But since i have a 2600k will i have any problems using that cpu with a pci-e 3.0 gfx card more specifically the msi 690 GTX card?? thought it wouldn't be necessary to invest in a Ivy bridge processor since i wont really get that much of a performance upgrade in games, according to the benchmarks iv'e seen.

Corsair CMT3Gx3M4x1866C9(XMP) 32GB (4 x 8GB) is on the QVL for sabertooth z77


I think a 2 is missing between the 3 and the G. Very expensive memory

I have seen guys running sabertooth z77 and 2600k only with an asus 690 and getting pretty good benchmarks. I dont see you having a problem using a msi 690

I saw that too. Been running it since day 1.. My machine seems OK. Let's hope they revise and update and post a new one soon...I know that there is one indivudial on the Asus boards that is having extreme issues after having update to 1403. Maybe there is something to his claims...

Interesting... I wonder if it has anything to do with instability... perhaps due to 32GB of RAM like the issue I just had.

The thread on the Asus boards had more to do with disabling the guy's RAID 1 array. He was posting in all caps and saying things like User beware...do not use, etc. Pretty angry. As I said before, I am running an SSD for OS drive and a 1 tb 7200 rpm drive for data, etc. I have had no SATA issues...but mine is only one of an incredible amount of configurations. Perhaps memory is another.

I am running the same config on 1403 and all runs fine for me.

I searched the thread and didn't see any post describing a problem similar to the one I'm about to describe, but its a big thread so.

Anyways I recently built a new gaming pc, here are the specs:

os: Windows 7 x64

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

EVGA 015-P3-1480-KR GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD Red Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R

ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM

So many of the games I have been trying to play keep freezing after 10-20 minutes of play. The computer doesn't freeze just the game, i need to ctl-alt-del to the to the desktop to close the game. Games that have been freezing are BF3 and dota 2. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood also freezes but if i alt-tab to desktop and then go back into the game, it starts working again. I've turned off the integrated soundcard via bios and haven't had a crash in BF3 or dota 2 after 4 hours of gameplay (haven't tested AC Brotherhood yet). All my drivers are up to date, and the crashes happen at high and low gpu and cpu temperatures. Any ideas?
