you won't regret it one bit. I have this board and chip. I've upgraded from an 1100tx6 and the Fx-8150 booth used on a Gigabyte 99fxa-ud7...I am very happy

Gaaaah, that little accessory fan in the middle front is annoying, it has a high pitched noise frown.gif I may have to remove it.

Here is a manual for those wondering, like me, how to overclock with the UEFI bios. It's in a PDF format.

Well done, Z77 Sabertooth + 3570k. Performace right now is not bad. Much more snappier than the X6.
Gaming is next for testing.

I might take back the 3570k for the 3770k. I might need the HT later on for video editing, but wont do that for at least 6-8 months.

Just ordered my first gaming rig though have been assembling stuff on and off for over a decade...

Must confess that the new ravishing Asus sabertooth z77 is the one who actually got me started into going for this..

New Stuff Ordered:
CPU: i7 2600k
MB: Asus Sabertooth z77
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz 4Gbx2

What I already have:
Graphics: Radeon 4870 512MB
SMPS: Corsair 450VX


Now wondering whether the old would work with the new!? :/

What do you think?

would the air cooling coming with the i7 be fine... or is water cooling a must?

Hey all, im looking at buying this board to go with an 3570k but am wondering about the thermal armor and fans.

I'd like to keep the armor on but am concerned about the intake fan next to the CPU clogging everything with dust seeing as it has no filter. Two options are 1. making the fan draw air out of the case or 2. just passively cooling the board. I'm fine with passive cooling but would that mean Id have to take the armor off?

Thanks

You can leave the armor as is, the effects the fans would have on the board would be negligible at best in the likeliest of circumstances.

Also, new guy here *waves* I'm also putting a system together the Sabertooth (board is already on-hand), 3570K, and some 12 gig G.Skill Snipers (also on-hand). Once I get the 3570 in my hands it is on! I think I'm going to miss my old Q6600 once I've made the move.

I do have a big issue. The CPU_OPT header is not working.
With the Q-Fan disabled and no fan plugged in, while booting I get CPU Fan error.
I plugged in 2 fans to each fan header and in the bios shows both fan speeds.
The Q-Fan section only shows CPU_FAN, but no option to control CPU_OPT.

Fan Expert and Thermal Armor do not work to control the CPU Header. I also did the Auto Fan test, and no option to control the fans.
I did a bios update to newest, still no Q-Fan option for CPU_OPT.
Even did a reset.

Fan is always at 100%, which defeats to have a silent system at night.

Thanks. So even though I have a sound card and graphics card, I still need to install audio/graphics drivers for the motherboard/cpu? How about Virtu? And would I need to install both the Intel and ASMedia USB 3.0 drivers?
