Hi Guys,

I'm new to the z77 Sabertooth club biggrin.gif....anyway, just installed everything last night and noticed my BIOS version was 1015. Everything is running fine and I've always been reluctant to upgrade BIOS unless I needed to. With that being said, that damn AI Suite II keeps prompting with an update. I know I can probably disable that, but I was curious if I shouldn't just bump up to 1504? I see that there were some stability improvements with the different versions, but again I'm fine with everything right now. Looking for some input from those who've been a member of the tribe longer than me smile.gif

Mine is the same.. when I want in to the BIOS I shut down and then restart. You can get in that way.

Just wondering if someone can help. I noticed a few posts in the 254 pages of this thread of the VGA LED illuminated when trying to boot from iGPU. I can only boot with a dedicated GPU. I have no options in BIOS for selecting which graphics to use.
Also, all of my multiplier settings in the BIOS have disappeared. They are completely missing. OC Tuner runs still and Turbo mode functions although you wouldn't know it as there is no feedback in BIOS as to what the settings are. I noticed in some posts here of a stuck multiplier of 35 and I seem to have similar symptoms.
I looked in Turbo V Evo in AI Suite II and I no longer have the CPU tabs to set the multiplier of each core there either. Completely disappeared.

I am running 1504 BIOS and have cleared it, updated it through AI Suite, updated through EZ Flash in BIOS, no effect. Reverted to 14xx BIOS... no effect. Upgraded back to 1504... no effect.

I have tried another CPU and no luck... no effect. I have tried different RAM... no effect. I already RMA-ed the board once, but received it back with no indication of anything was repaired on it. No notes, nothing. I'm not sure how this issue could be missed with even standard testing of the board. I have already applied for another RMA, but I just don't know what to do from here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You have only one option at this point ..Rma again. In a properly functioning board the display is automatically detected. Whether using igpu or discrete card. That setting is available in BIOS 1504 in advanced tab. Primary Display. It's set to auto by default and I have tested it. You need to rma again. There is a Asus rep on this site you can contact. Just have to find the link.

Hi all, I've posted a similar question over in the intel board, but since you all have the sabertooth Z77 maybe you can help.

I'm trying to overclock my I5 3570K to 4.5Ghz.

I've updated Bios to 1506 x64

However it seems that it dosnt matter if I use OC tuner or change the ratio settings by hand, the chip just sits at 3.40ghz, almost as if it's locked.

The settings change in the bios, I.E. the show the new settings in he menu, but the chip dosnt do a thing.

Could someone please point me where I'm going wrong.

I've used OC Tuner, that didn't work, so then set the following by hand.

I've changed CPU ratio to 45

And mem to ddr3 1600mhz

Everything else is on auto

Hope to hear from u soon

CPU Ratio is not the right place. You should set multiplier at Turbo Ratio under Ai Tweaker.

Tried that as well. Still no go.

Is there a way I can reload an older bios to see if that's the issue?
