I haven't had the shutdown problem on this board but I had it for a bit on the Crosshair V. Flashing to the newest bios and then clearing cmos using the jumper and removing the cmos battery fixed the problem. Its more likely a bios issue than a nvidia one

the mobo fans (the two small ones) aren't suppose to turn off after your pc turns off. There's an option to stop them from doing that however in bios. It's called Over fan or something.

if you're having the mobo fan won't turn off "problem"

It's ALL the case fans and GPU fans that won't turn off. Including any LED lights you have in the case, not just the mini mobo fans.

Has anyone tried rolling back a driver set? Did it work?

The corsair pro series AX850 comes with 2 eatx12v cables, but neither of them are pinned properly for the sabertooth (actually doing some forum running and it sounds like it's a problem with just about all ASUS boards with the corsair ax850 psu).
Anyway, I had to just connect the 4 pin to the psu and the 8 pin to the power, but I would REALLY like to be able to use an 8 pin to the mobo for better stabiility. I'm trying to find out two things. First, how is corsair's customer service in regards to replacing/offering parts? Second, does anyone else have a 4 pin eatx12v to their board and if so, have you had any issues?
Thanks guys.

Not ignoring, I just haven't caught back up since I was doing a final assembly on my rig tonight. The "Beast with a Billion Backs" is up and running!

Anyway, I am using only the 4 pin connector so far with no problems. My old P5Q-Deluxe only needed the 4 pin and I had the extension cable to route that one properly. My PSU has an 8pin EATX but it isn't long enough to go from bottom of Antec 1200 to top of the board. I have no idea if it causes stability issues or whatnot. I'm not pushing my CPU past stock voltages and a simple 4.4GHz overclock.

You should be plenty fine AFAICT.

Cheers!

I saw something in another forum, can't remember where, maybe extremesystems - saying ASUS boards will try to load a lot of additional drivers/tools that aren't needed, can't find it though.

I got this sorted out, at least on my setup. The naughty piece was the Realtek driver package and utilities garbage. Installing that piece added 25s to my boot!!! mad.gif It is not necessary unless you like the auto detect plugin or you use any of that equalization junk. The base drivers come in Windows and work just fine. I would avoid installing that package if possible.

As to my boot time it stabilized right around 30-35s. That is Win7 Ultimate 64b with all Intel drivers, ASMedia USB and SATA drivers, ATI CCC, AISuite and Avast anti-virus. With both of the SATA BootROMs and BIOS I get ~14s until the Starting Windows screen. That is almost as long as all of the software combined. The Z77 Sabertooth has so many devices that have to be enumerated and init'd as well as the fan software, etc it takes a while. That is a side-effect of having a feature rich board such as this one.

Yeah, I just went with the 4 pin as I was impatient, but trying to do some more research before I push my OC. I'm just at a measly 4.2 now. My thoughts are that if they put an 8 pin on the board, it must be for a reason...? Haha thanks!

cheers guys, help us out!
No problems at all with the psu. Matter of fact it IS top of the line quality. The only issue I was discussing is the eatx12v cables they include (supposedly for various compatibilty, both of which have 2x4 pin side-by-sides for 4 pin mobo connect) aren't the correct ones for the sabertooth z77 (and just about any other asus 8 pin board i have run across). Therefore, the only issue is you have to run the 4 pin instead of the 8 pin. Which may or may not be an issue...? That is what we are trying to figure out in regards to stability. wink.gif

I want to know which one can achieve a higher stable overclock...I realize the V Pro has 12+4 VRM while the Sabertooth has 8+4+2.
I will be going with the 3570K
I am also afraid the TUF armour will get in the way of liquid cooling options like the H100 and the upcoming CM Eisberg
The armor doesn't get in the way of anything, actually may help in many instances. I am running an H100 and it has more than enough room. The eisberg is taller than the h100, but doesn't look much wider (if at all) so should fit just fine as well.

Here is a link that helped me make the very decision you are facing regarding the mobo! http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/pc-components/motherboards/asus-sabertooth-z77-1075395/review there was another that I can't seem to find right now.

I am kind of leaning toward 2 possibilities. First, I'm wondering if it has to do with the fan overtime settings or the AI suite II controls in general. I don't know how many previous versions there are, but maybe something off there... I realize this wouldn't account necessarily for the gpu fans continuing to spin... but?

The second possibilty that I tam leaning towards is i'm wondering if this has to maybe do with the intel rapid smart technology or windows power saving options. Have you tried disabling the rapid start technology and messing with the power saving options in windows?

Or maybe a mix of both... As in the OS thinks its powering the system off, but it's really just going into S3 or something.
