Sounds good!

Depends on what you can get it to. You probably won't notice a difference realistically though...

If so, check the power settings in Windows smile.gif

Apparently it won't do any harm. But the way I see it is mileage on a car. More you use it to full power, the lower it will last over time.

Temps.jpg 321k .jpg file

I ran Prime95 for 2 Hours.

CPU: I7-3770K @ 4.2 ghz
Mobo: Sabertooth Z77
Cooling: H100 with x2 Noctua NF-P12 in Push Config.
RAM:16 GB of ram, G.Skill Sniper 1866mhz (Showing as 1600 mhz in windows but 1866mhz in BIOS ?!?)
SSD: Samsung 830
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 SC
PSU: Seasonic 1250X
Case: Corsair 850D

Le beast.jpg 133k .jpg file

I am adding a Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm for my back exhaust and changing the 35mm intake fan on the Sabertooth Z77 to a 40mm Noctua (Those Little 35mm fans are noisy)

How are my temps looking ? whats a good temp with the H100 and Overclock IVY ?

Just built a PC with the this board and like it a lot. Only problem I'm having is even though the boot order is set and all of my boot devices are recognized, the system always boots to the BIOS and not from my boot devices from order. I always have to select a device to boot from in the BIOS. Here's my build:

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
GPU: 2 x MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 (SLI)
MOBO: Sabertooth Z77
RAM: 4 x 8 GB G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32 GB (F3-1600C9Q-32GXM)
HDs: Corsair Neutron Series GTX CSSD-N240GBGTX-BK 2.5" 240GB (new)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" (old)
DVD: LG 22X DVD+-R DVD Burner SATA Model GH22NS30
PSU: KINGWIN LZP-1000 1000W

Some things to note, if I disconnect the HDD and the DVD drive, and have a bootable OS installed on the SSD, it boots fine from the SSD immediately. But as soon as I add the HDD or DVD, it doesn't boot from anything and goes straight to the BIOS. Also, if I turn off the PC and disconnect the AC power and plug it back in, it seems to boot fine for that one time (follows the boot order, not to BIOS unless I hold DEL), which made me think it was the fast boot setting throwing it off (since it's set to do normal boot after AC power loss). Tried turning off fast boot with the same results (boots to BIOS and have to select device).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I've gone through ASUS support and he's recommending me one thing a night via email and has come back to asking me if I have the boot order set correctly in the Advanced Mode BIOS. Could it be a bad board and should I RMA? Could it be that my DVD drive and HDD are older (purchased in 2009)? Or is it just a BIOS setting I'm not catching?

Check section 4.3.7 of your manual. Basically all you have to do is enable USB Charger+ inside ASUS AI Suite once you have the device connected.

Which SATA ports are your devices plugged into?

 

When you say you have your boot order set, I'm assuming you've set it to boot from Hard Disk and then DVD, and then specifically set the order of which Hard Disk to use (read: It tries booting from the SSD first and then the HDD)?

 

I looked up your 750GB HDD and it supports AHCI, so that's not an issue,

 

Are you running the most recent BIOS? (1708)

 

I've had some of my USB devices interfere with booting when I was first setting up my Sabertooth. On a whim, does booting only with a keyboard plugged in make any difference?

As far as the small fans on the armor, have they provided any better ones since Dubbed's review (stating that they are very noisy and are a different fan than what's mentioned in the manual)?

I don't think ASUS will change that.
That said, that's my complaint of the board, but others like using the fans, and don't find them noisy.
One of the fans can be replaced by a Noctua 40mm, which seems to have given better results to some.

Long story short: If you feel 5c is a big difference on motherboard temps, then use it - if not, then do as I did, and get rid of them completely.
(Also remember that realistically you won't ever use your PC like p95 does for over 5hrs)
