Affectionately known as push or pull fans. The sabertooth manual suggests that you use them both as push fans where air is being pushed into the protective thermal armor. If you notice the armor has exhaust grids / vents that allow air to come out.

Some people use the top fan as a push fan and that side fan as a pull fan. I've not tried it so I'm not sure if that lowers temps any better if it was push and pull rather than both being push. Since I'm not sure on how much air is actually going through the boards to both sides of the thermal armor I've got them both as push fans.

If you can see the sabertooth logo on the mini fan facing you that means it's being used as a push fan. The side fan the logo facing outward so you can see it from the side is also push fan.

The Trident X is Z77 & Ivy ready for XMP 1.3 capable perfomance.

Thank you for answering me, that helps me a lot. But that is not only Intel thing, Asus explained the other Z77 boards 2800 Mhz(OC), Sabertooth is explained 1866Mhz only. I think this is explanation or warranty issue. Sabertooth has 5 years warranty, maybe upper 1866 Mhz identified out of warranty. tongue.gif

I'm not sure if they can even see what speed RAM your using, if you were to return their motherboard for an RMA. If they shoukd ask you when you call for the warranty just tell him it was 1600 MHz. wink.gif

If someone would let me know if they got a madcatz ps3 tournament edition arcade stick to work on this board, that would be awesome. I'm thinking it's a Z77 thing, but if it's a board thing I'll jump ship.

I am considering this motherboard and wondering if I paired it up with a 2550 sandy and a nvidia 560TI would I still be able to get into the bios seeing that the 2550 has no intergrated GPU . also concerned that their are USB issues setting up windows as a few have posted, My main concern as I have posted is the ability to configure the motherboard to use only my 560TI graphics card

I just ordered mine to go with a I5-3570K. I'm upgrading from a PII 955.
