Just a little info also i am running a 3570k. congrats on the boot up!!!!! thumb.gif

I doubt I will be able to overclock to high with this Hyper TX3 Evo, so I won't be attempting it until I either get the H100 or kit it out with customized water parts. I did look at the H100 before ordering everything, but it was a little above my budget. I may upgrade to the H100 and then later to more of a customized water system. Will just see how my budget goes. I will be trying for around 4.8 - 5.0GHz eventually.

Aside from one weird problem where my USB mouse randomly stops working after several hours of being away from the computer everything seems fine with it
You could try 1206 or bios 1304 but in all honesty some peeps have had issues with 1403 .. operative word there is SOME.. If your feeling frisky then go ahead and try .. And there is nothing wrong with staying at an early Bios rev. Main reason I would flash ANY board is to resolve Issues with board or hardware related problems. Good luck

I can't understand which drivers, utilities i need to install for my beauty wubsmiley.gif (Sabertooth z77). I grabbed everything from ASUS global site (fresh windows 7 install). Is the following procedure correct 1) windows install 2) Lan 17.1.0.0 3)windows update 4)all the others. I'm trying to have a system with needed drivers & utilities.
Thanks in advance.
You really dont need have the software crap that comes with this board.. as far as the basic's go. I personally do not use Software overclocking Utilities.. Stick to the main drivers your hardware needs to operate firstly.. I would stay away from Virtu MVP ... You can always check your device manager to see if your missing anything.cheers.gif

The H100 is a bomb:thumb: cooler if your not experienced at making your own water loop. I have it and it keeps my 4.5ghz below 60c.

What would be the drawbacks of running 670s in SLI on the first and third PCIEx16 slots? I've got one card under watercooling, and I plan to put the other one under but it will require a different waterblock so I might have to run tubing between them instead of an SLI waterblock link, and running the tubing will be a lot easier if I set them to the first and third slots.

The drawback is that slot 3 PCIe 2.0 and is only x4.. Runing first and second is recommended to give you 8 x 8 .at PCIe 3.0. I think you would be 8 x 4 in 1st and 3rd an obvious disservice to your cards.smile.gif
