maybe also the Patriot Viper, also 2X8Gb and also 1600. same problem with the vagueness of the exact model.
thanks for helping out, mate biggrin.gif
Corsair makes low profile Vengeance series RAM. You might want to look into that. Also, I wouldn't spend more money on 1866 or anything. You are right to stick with 1600. I would make sure though that you get modules that are 1.5V or lower with CAS of 9. You don't need to spend more for modules running at CAS of 8.

If you are not using the system for gaming then the new generation onboard graphics are fine. All you need is a HDMI to VGA adaptor.

Hey guys,

I just built a new gaming rig (first time building my own PC) and used the Sabertooth z77 as my Motherboard. Here is my build on PC-Part-Picker:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/iS9c

Or here:
Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Asus SABERTOOTH Z77 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Corsair Force Series GS 360GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
EVGA GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB Video Card
Thermaltake VN300M1W2N ATX Full Tower Case
Cooler Master Silent Pro M 850W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

I'm having some issues with it though, my PC randomly will restart. No error messages will come up or BSOD, just as if you flipped the power switch on and off again or hit a "reset" button. Usually when this happens it will restart AGAIN during the booting process. So, either during the BIOS loading screen or the Windows loading screen it will restart itself again. Sometimes it even gets caught in a reboot "loop" doing this over and over again. Sometimes it will bring me to the screen saying Windows was unable to start, and asked if I want to launch startup repair.

It's odd though because I am able to play Guilwars 2 for hours on end, and not have a reboot occur. But it seems if I am doing anything else it will reboot itself within a half hour or so. I've had it reboot during games, browsing the net, etc. I tried just booting it up into windows and letting it sit there idle, reboots after a certain time for that. Then I tried just booting into the BIOS, and it will randomly reboot just sitting in the BIOS too.

I don't think it's due to any overheating either, been monitoring CPU/GPU temps and they have been staying pretty low, GPU got up to the 70C range during some Nvidia stress tests I've been doing, and the CPUs have stayed in the 30's and low 40s. Plus the reboots happen when the system is just idle or just in BIOS, so probably not load/stress induced.

I'm using the newest BIOS version (1504) which was what came on my MoBo, all I did was load the drivers and whatnot from the MoBo disk that came with it, then downloaded drivers from my nVidia disk and went to the Nvidia website and got the latest driver.

Here are two pictures I have taken. One of my BIOS home screen. The other is of my components in my case. One thing I have a question about... there is a red LED that's lit up right by my USB 3.0 input that you can see in the one image... is this supposed tobe red? Or green? Not sure if it being red means there is a problem with something.





Anyways, some input or advice as to what might be causing these reboots would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

That's a HDD boot device LED error with the red LED lighting up.
Seeing it's next to the USB connector try unplugging the front USB plug to see if it's the front USB ports at fault, if it's still red it could be a faulty HDD, cable or even optical drive, remove one at a time and reboot.
I'd also move the video card into PCIE slot 1.
Oh and don't forget installing the free dust slot covers tongue.gif

Thanks!

I have seen this exact problem by another poster a few months back.. cant remember what the solution was but it was fixed.. Might have been AI suite or some USB device the guy had .. IF i find it i will post back.

In Ai Overclock Tuner I only have options for Auto or Manual, but not XMP. I have the latest 1504 bios. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong as I'm trying to have a go at overcloking.

What CPU are you Using? I assume You have another build now besides Dead Horse? There are a lot of bios screen shots here .. let me know what your looking for Clock wise.. I will post up 45 and 47 multi for a 3770k if you want.. Also I Overclock only through the BIOS .. I dont use any OC software ... tongue.gif

What memory are you using? The XMP option may not appear depending on your RAMs.

Hi guys,

About to get the Asus Sabertooth Z77 or the Maximus V Formula.
However I am in doubt regarding RAM.

Can I use RAM which is not found in the ASUS vendor list: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1155/SABERTOOTH_Z77/SABERTOOTH-Z77-Memory-QVL.pdf
Using the Corsair website "Guaranteed-Compatible Memory for yourAsus SABERTOOTH Z77": http://www.corsair.com/learn_n_explore/
I actually find memory which is not on the Asus list. Is it simply a case of the Asus list not being up to date?

I have found the below set which i can get at a reasonable price locally.

CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 16GB (4 x 4GB) CAS9 2133mhz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233230

Can I expect this memory to work with the Sabertooth?
