I am sure it is simply a false reading but will open up the case and see if I can find anything.

What gives it away that its a false reading is it takes about 20 seconds to go from powered off state to being on the desktop and ASUS suite give me the reading of 122 degrees straight off the bat.

And there is no way on gods green earth it will give that temp in 20 seconds specials seeing as I dont overclock.

I have no issue connecting ax850's 8pin motherboard cable to either rampage 3 formula or z77 sabertooth.
Either you are mounting it wrong or your cable is faulty.

I've played around with both. With the auto, vcore is way too high for the benefit... it auto clocks at 3.8-3.9 for stability without you having to touch anything, but it pushes 1.2v+ ... I was able to get a stable clock with the Ai suite II at 4.5 but my vcore was between 1.31-1.33. My rig is still brand new so I haven't had time to manually OC it yet. Have only had it for 4 days and I work grave yards frown.gif But the gain from all the auto garbage is definitely not worth it in my opinion. Can be MUCH more efficient (according to other's results) with a manual OC.

Cables are just fine and I don't think I know what you mean by mounting it wrong... I think that would be impossible. It's a modular and the connector is part of the mobo... the problem is the 8 pin mobo connect has the square, round, round, square but the cables are round,round,round, square. If that makes no sense I will can try to better explain.

Nope, it's not designed that way. You can save the profile, but it does not change the BIOS settings. So if you are using ai suite, you have to save the profile, then just load it when windows starts to get your exact settings back. I highly dislike the program for what it's worth... the sabertooth has a great BIOS so the program is not really needed. The only thing I have used it for (i have only had my rig set up for 4 days though) has been to monitor fans and heat on area of the mobo.

I get what you mean mate, but just don't worry about the patterns.
All "rounds" fit into the "squares" without a problem.

The rounds fit in the squares yes, but the squares dont fit in the rounds, which is where the problem lies... Do you actually have the ax850? Because it clearly does not come with the correct 8 pin cable, and no matter what you try, you will not be able to plug an 8 pin into the sabertooth. I realize I can just purchase a seperate cable, but the main topic stemmed from wondering if this was an error on corsairs part (meaning I got an incorrect cable), and if anyone has had stability issues just running a 4 pin to eatx.

EDIT:I don't think I have the same cable as the one in your pictures. I tried everything and messed around and triple checked everything for a good 20 mins thinking I was going crazy... I will look again, but dont think my 4 pins are set up the same.

I just recently installed the Sabertooth in my new build. I went over to Asus website downloaded and installed all the updated drivers. I installed all the utilities from the download section for the Sabertooth and found that I had a ton of processes running in the background. So I uninstalled just the utilities and now I get an error at when I first turn on my computer. I would appreciate it if anyone had any ideas on how to remedy this problem.

I will look again, but dont think my 4 pins are set up the same.
I do own an ax850 and a sabertooth z77 also.
The pics I showed you are not random google pics, they are mine, I took them this morning.

How about taking a picture of your cable and let's compare it to mine.
(there are two of those cables in the ax850 bundle if the one inside your case is troubling to photograph)


Isn't one 4pin with only "round" pins in your cable?

Just a do a clean install on your OS.
No need to install every piece of software Asus has. Only install what you're going to use.
