Hi OCN Sabertooth z77 owners! I just joined the club. I need a little help overclocking and made a new thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1253342/help-oc-sabertooh-z77-i7-2700k

Thank you OCN!

hi guys. Not sure f anyone saw my post b4 but just wanted to join the Club. I bought my Sabretooth on Friday. Loving the board and the features. I also purchased the new IB 3570k i5..only issue is understanding the UEFI bios...I have no clue on how to OC the processor manually. My last intel system was a q6600 on a 680i and my sytem that I replaced was an AMD. The AMD had the old fashion bios.

Anyway, I tried doing the auto OC and the XMP profile. I can only get 3.5ghz OC. I'd like to try it out manually but I don't know where or what the voltage, multiplier or FSB options are. UEFI is a great interface but to someone that doesn't know how to use it it pretty complicated. Is there a tutorial somewhere online or even a guide to over clock the SB or IB on the UEFI Bios?..

Do I have to disable something in the bios to maintain a stable voltage? HELP!!!!! lol:o

Hey blatsz32, I too just got Sabertooth this weekend. I haven't even put it together yet but from reading the forums I can tell you that it is fairly easy overclocking ivy bridge. I'm pretty sure there is nothing you need to do on the board and everything to do with bios settings. Don't take me as an expect but I hope I can steer you on the right track so you later help me with OCing smile.gif

oh heh nvm, I think I may have found a light at the end of the tunnel. there seems to be a thread, previous to this one, about overclocking a Z77 UEFI bios. LOL, guess it pays to read.

Hope that helps Gauntlet. I have yet to check it out completely but hopefully it makes navigating the UEFI bios easier

Greetings Sabertooth Z77 owners. I was wondering if any of you happen to own a Mad Catz Tournament Edition Arcade Stick for the PS3 and have been able to get it to work with this Z77 board. I have a Gigabyte Z77 board, and the stick shows up but none of the buttons register so I'm wondering if this Asus board with a different USB controller has any better luck. Thanks in advance.

First congrats to all who purchsed the Sabertooth. My X58 was great and I'm very confident this Z77 Sabertooth will be as equally well built. One solid mobo. cheers.gif

I figured out how to use the Ivy intergrated graphics temporarily by switching the gold plated 1.4a HMDI cable I was using to a HDMI 1.3 and all worked. biggrin.gif

I'm finally excited all is coming together after a two day build and reformat of HDD to start completely fresh after the last 16 months without incident. It's been very refreshing.

The kids finally have their own X58 with GTX 680 to play with and they are so excited to be able to down load and do anything they like to their own computer finally. However not more so than I am that I finally have a system without their clutter all over.

I anxiously await the final piece pre-ordred and will be with intergrated graphics until close to the end of the month when my gorgeous GTX 690 arrives.

I'll be back asking questions eventually as I'm new to the UEFI BIOS as many others on this thread. I'll be reading along and learning from others in the interim. I will be tackling other areas of CPU over clocking soon and have a lot of homework to do as the learning curve is steep yet very fun being a computer enthusiast. thumb.gif

Does anyone find it odd that the Assist fan that sits on the motherboard has only 3 screw placements, yet according to the manual pictures it's supposed to have 4?

- Also I think I've not connected my I/O shield correctly as I can't plug the usb leads properly into the back lol. I swear when I installed it the I/O shield clicked into place from the back of the case and the board is resting on the standoffs, so i'm stumped to why it didn't line up properly.

that happened to me as well, but what i did was clip the i/o shield onto the motherboard itself and kind of fitted into place, then mount the mobo with the i/o together onto the case.

Thanks, I'll try that, hopefully it wont be hard to take the I/O shield off as it clipped into place.

Hey guys,

I've placed my order and currently waiting for the Sabertooth + i5 3570K to arrive. I checked the Asus Z77 info thread and it has a very helpful list of items, but I just want to confirm what are the necessary drivers to install and which can I skip? I'm upgrading from an E6600 so I can't wait!

Asus Sabertooth Z77
i5 3570K
16GB 1833 RAM
256GB Samsung 830 SSD
Asus Xonar STX sound card
DVD-RW drive
ATI 5850 video card
