Hello everyone.

There is a cross of two Asus 7970 DC2T, in cross in the first graphics card gpu-z shows the system bus interface PCI-Ex8, and the second PCI-Ex4, in single PCI-Ex16. The idea and the first and the second should work in a cross race in the mode of PCI-Ex8. Maybe there is some setting in the BIOS of the motherboard ASUS Sabertooth X77.
Cards are inserted in second (PCI-E X16) and fourth (PCI-E X8) connectors. Yet there is a caveat cross does not work, freezes (blue screen) on the driver AMD_Catalyst_12.4

Well, I've had my baby up and running since this afternoon. (late evening here now), and I have had no problems at all. Great board!

450

yes I know, the push pull fan wires are ugly, I'll solve that later.

I was curios if anybody else had any problems like this, i updated the bios and it runs fine now but if you remove that second fan off the board it doesn't start at all... even if its disabled in the bios... me and my friend are both loving the Z77 Sabertooth with our I5 3570k chips fastest thing i've ever seen... i still need to finish some machining on my cpu cooling block before i'm done and start pushing the overclock but i'm trying to learn more about the UEFI anybody got any good links I would appreciate it... it all seems so simple it freaks me out...thumb.gif


You can disable the cpu fan monitor in the BIOS. Go to Advanced Settings-Monitor-CPU FAN- IGNORE. once you do that you should be able to boot to the OS without gtting the F1 stop...seems alot of you are having the F1 CPU FAN stop issue...just follow what I wrote and you should all be set. Now, as for your assist fans..go to your ASUS AISuite-Thermal Armor- In the large Mobo mapping, at the bottom, there are tabs, chose the Fan- Click Assist fan-Settings- I have mine set to Turbo ( I don't mind the speed). Set your to silent or which evr setting you want. Little fans like that ie 80mm fans spin fast so 4000rpm isn't to wied. Heck, mines almost at 4600rpms..

Just built out my Sabertooth Z77 last night and have a couple of questions. Everything appears to work except for the Display Port.

1) Anyone able to use the Display Port ??? I am not getting any output on the Display Port, only the HDMI port. I have tried both the AUTO and iGPU settings in the BIOS.

2) With the Intel HD4000 iGPU, is it possible to use simultaneously both the HDMI and Display Port in a dual headed configuration without using a separate PCIe Graphics Card ?

3) Also, does anyone have any favorite aftermarket air coolers that will fit? I am trying to build a very quiet 24x7 machine.

Thanks,
Tim

I purchased my 2 Video cards and my 3 monitors like 6 months ago, and I've been wanting to update the case, mobo and cpu on my system for a bit, so I just ordered a new Haf-X Case, IB i7 3770k CPU and an Asus Sabertooth Z77. I might update my SSD also...
I need some advice on memory guys, i got DDR3 2000 Ram on my current setup, but I never got it to run even close to that speed, so i kinda wasted cash there....I don't want that to happen again this time....so I just read all 64 pages of this thread to see what people use....I see a lot of people use DDR3 1866 Ram, I see Corsair Vengeance in a lot of signatures, some others use faster memory up to DDR3 2400.
I'd like to get 16 GB of ram that it's super easy to setup, I plan to do a mild overclock on the CPU but I don't have much free time lately so I like to keep all things simple this time, I'd like to buy ram that runs at specs without any special tweaks.....so i can just focus on the cpu overclock and enjoy my system....
so i'm looking at the QVL for tested ram, i see a G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB 1866 Kit (Model F3-14900CL9Q-16GBXL) kit that it's in the QVL and it's super cheap, that's one option.....The very popular Corsair Vengeance 1866 Kit in the QVL it's a 2x4GB kit CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866 Model CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9R so I'd have to buy 2 of those for 16 GB, I'd prefer buy a 16 GB (4 x 4GB) Vengeance kit but that one is NOT in the QVL, are the modules on the 16 GB kit the same ones on the 8 GB Vengeance kit that is on the QVL? if that 16 Gb kit it's 100% compatible I might get it over the G.Skill kit....
there's also faster ram at cheap prices, but I'm afraid I'd need to do a lot of tweaks to get them working..., what do you guys think? what would be your choice for Memory for this Mobo if you plan to overclock you CPU?
thanks in advance
-Andres

K, the last build I had I used Corsair Vengeance. I went from 1333-1600..I liked it, it was stable, and it was fas but it didn't overclock for dog poopt. I used the Ram on an FX8150 and a Gigabyte 990FXA-ud7. No I have this rig, thought about transferring my 1600 over to it but I decided to buy some Patriot Sector 2 Viper 1866 RAM..let me tell you what....Freaking awesome RAM. Overclocked like a dream..way over the XMP and its stable. My first time buying Patriot anything and I am actually a convert ..so I'm going to push you into researching

Zantril, I verified my CPU-Z while I was running my tests.

OK gang, I posted it a while back but I'll bring it up again now. It's a guide to using the Z77 UEFI bios and how to overclock. Now keep in mind, the setting in the UEFI wil be different for the i5 and i7 and the "k" series chips. I checked the link out and it's safe. Its also a good reference and starting point

http://www.mediafire.com/?l34d6j6c4wqfx69

Also, looks like the member SimpleTech started an ASUS bios/z77 information post. here is the link to the thread:

thanks for the reply Blatsz32 will definitelly look that one up... I don't think i want to overclock the ram though, kinda looking for a 100% compatible option, because i don't want to spend a lot of time tweaking the ram to make it work....that's why i was looking at the QVL, i don't live in the US so i can't return it if it doesn't work well....

the fastest ram i saw one of the users in this post have were these G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 but they are NOT in the Asus QVL, but in g.skill site it says it's Z77 compatible and it has a QVL list at the bottom with our motherboard in it....they use 1.65V most people here use 1.5V ram, is there a reason for that?. any other ideas? what do you guys think? should i go for the FASTEST ram like these DDR 2400 Kit or just play it safe and get a 1866 Kit that's in the QVL? I read somewhere that these boards are kinda picky with the ram, i don't want to make a mistake....

thanks it still didn't work disabling the opt fan or the cpu fan it doesn't matter i just put 2 fans on the cooler master air cooler and it works fine but if ever even with both fan sesnsors disabled i disconnect one or the other or both it just refuses to boot up... no twitches or flickers... nothing at all. But with both fans hooked up it runs fine...
