[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Owners Thread/Club - Page 319

post #3181 of 6918
Hi all,

Its been a while since I was last here posting comments, but I wanted to share my Asus Sabertooth build, now that it is more or less complete.

So that specs are as follows:

Intel i-5 3670K overclocked @4.5Ghz @1.275V, Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard, Dual Gigabyte GTX 670 Oc's in SLI, 16Gb Corsair DDR3 1600 Mhz Ram, Corsair H80 CPU closed loop water cooling, Corsair TX 850W power supply, Corsair AF140mm case fans X 6, Corsair Carbide 500R white case, OCZ Agility 3 20nm SATA III 2.5" SSD, Western Digital 2TB hard disc, Benq XL2410T Monitor

The whole system just rocks, and I couldn't be happier. The only thing the I really want to do now, is sleeve the cables to give it that pro look.

I have run a couple of 3d mark 11 benchmarks and have so far had a best run of X6497 and P14708.

Would like to push the CPU a bit more soon, so I'll be looking for some advice from you fellow Sabers.

@ Starlo

 

Did you place the 2nd GPU in the 3rd slot? All the way down? NVM. I got it now.

 

Nice setup btw.

 

I will definitaly add a 2nd 670 myself. I decided on it.

So, I decided to OC more than 4.1GHz I turned off XMP mode, put it in manual mode. All I changed was setting the memory to 1600 and changed to 100x44. Everything left on Auto. Getting 4.4GHz. So far so good. This is after running about 11 minutes of prime95.

This look ok? Any concerns here I need to look at? CPUz

Also I dunno if your machine has to be shut off when you press that bios button on the back. I'll need to update to 1206 anyway so I'll try it.
Wish me luck redface.gif
*edit*
I live! ... again! rolleyes.gif
You shut down your machine, plug the stick into that labelled port and hold the bios button on the IO panel. After 2-3 seconds it starts blinking and after 3-4 seconds or so it starts reading the stick and updating the bios file. (my stick has some access led so I noticed it started blinking)
When its finished, it just shuts down again. Seems like a nice feature for the lazy. thumb.gif

guys, I am trying this methos right now to update my BIOS. I follow these steps and now my BIOS button stop blinking but it's still glowing. My USB stick's led doenst blinking right now. Does its mean the process already ended or it still going on?

So I am going to buy this motherboard next week with an i7 3770k and the corsair 8gb(2*4gb) ram ( http://www.corsair.com/us/memory-by-product-family/vengeance/vengeance-8gb-dual-channel-ddr3-memory-kit-cmz8gx3m2a1600c9.html ). The problem is that I don't know which cooler I am going to buy, since I am worried of space between to cpu and the ram. What air cooler do you suggest? As a case it's not a problem since I already bought the corsair 800D.

If you are going to spend that much, I'd suggest go ahead and get the H100.
