[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Owners Thread/Club - Page 353

post #3521 of 6915
I am embarrassed to say I just upgraded bios to 1708 and forgot to write down my previous bios setting. I have been running Win 8 for quite some time at 4.3 with good temps. I just added another 256 Vertex 4 SSD, switched to raid 0, and upgraded bios. I am not concerned with max OC, but enjoy at little more ) I remember one member stating all he changed was offset - .025 ( I think) and I believe there was one other thing. If he could repost, I would appreciate it.

I am planning on using the z77 Sabertooth for my watercooled PC-50R build.

How easy is it to remove the Thermal Armour?
I would like to remove it all for some custom paint.

You can't do custom fan profiles, from what I can remember.

Thanks!

And since no one else bothered to answer the first two questions, I checked by myself. If anyone's interested:

Yes, modded 1708 and RST 11.6 are fine (so far at least), SSD benchmarks show that nothing of value is lost, performance is top notch, there are no hangups or crashes.

No, upgrading the IME firmware does not have any adverse effects as far as I can tell. Didn't check the vPro itself though.

As I recall, in BIOS under monitoring there is each fan, and each has an enable and disable, fan alarm RPM, and fan speed option.

The fan speed option has four choices - silent, standard, turbo, and manual.

Under the manual choice you can enter some info for temps and fan speeds for min and max temps and speeds.

It has all the fans including the cpu opt. fan so maybe that will work for you.

Check it out and let us know if that works for you or not.

Hey guys! newbie forum poster / proud new sabertooth owner here, wondering if i could get a little advice. I apologize in advance if this question has already been answered, I started reading from page 1 here and gave up at about page 75 ... now im posting on page 380 (?) tongue.gif

So Im confused about which of the bundled software is necessary for performance/things to work, and what
is bloatware (or for novice pc users).

For example, I would like to charge my usb devices faster, but is this only possible via the software that comes
with the suite? or is that just a 'user friendly' resource hog to give a badly worded Taiwanese - English translated GUI to this feature?

Same with the Realtek HD audio manager (or whatever its called) that sits in my notification erea and loads to a clunky and slow interface. I want to uninstall it so badly but then am I removing my auto drivers? or perhaps tuning back its performance by defaulting it to a generic on board sound card by removing its software?

Similar questions relating to most of the software, especially the Intel stuff, like the rapid storage.

Thanks in advance, I know from browsing posts you guys are amazing and helpful.

edit: not sure whats up with the multi line formatting here I'll have to get used to it offtopic.gif
