Thanks!
I keep the fans on the same spec and try to pair them at the same locations so I roughly know whats picking up speed when it hits the heat bump!!

I am a r00kie to over clocking, never messed it with, normally i would leave everything as is. Can someone tell me what setting i should be changing to bump the CPU speed up a little? As long as i do it once I can continue playing with it until its stable but I just don't know how to begin.blinksmiley.gif
If you truely don't know anything about overclocking yet, then I would suggest just searching the forums. There are TONS of overclocking guides out there that will teach you the basics (which I highly suggest learning before you just start messing with stuff). I wish there were a simple single setting as you suggest to change the cpu speed... but there is not.

Ok guys I decided to get the Noctua NH-D14 cooler for my Asus Sabertooth Z77

 

I know that the cooler fits the motherboard but people suggest not to buy high end memories.

 

I currently have 2 4GB Corsair XMS3 rams

would these have issues being installed to my system with the Noctua Coller on my Asus Z77?

You should be good to go thumb.gif That particular memory is not on the qualified vendors list, so you MAY have to just go into the bios and manually set the speed because the mobo might not recognize it.

Hi all.

I’m a newbie to this great board. Have finished my build of the Sabertooth with a 2600k. Love it, but have one question.

I have a WD green 1TB drive that I have used in the past as both a boot and data drive (2 partitions). I now boot from a SSD and it works fine. However, if I have the WD 1TB connected to the system in any way…. USB, eSata, internal brown sata, the system will not boot with the red boot light illuminated even though this drive is not specified in the bios boot order. If I boot the system and then turn the drive on in an external toaster enclosure the system has no problem with it reading and writing either of the partitions. Have it connected at startup and no boot.

Is this a case of bad drive firmware, or is there a possible solution?

Hey guys first post here but have read pretty much the whole thread. Like my mobo so far but i have an issue....the PCIE16_1 slot for my main graphics card slot will only report any video card i put in it as an x4 card (shows x4 in bios, gpu-z, and cpu-z) if i switch it to the 2nd slot it will read at x8 but still not x16. I have the latest bios and i think i have verified that i have bad PCIE16 slots by trying different cards and both of the 16 slots....anybody else have this issue or seen the issue and agree its the slots on the mobo?

So you have windows installed on the 1tb drive?

So you have windows installed on the 1tb drive? And you want to dual boot? Or just use that drive for data? Or keep the data on it the way it is for some reason?

Best to do a clean format, after backing up what you need, then trying the drive. You probably had it running in ide mode when you installed windows, and now you are trying to use it in ahci mode. If you put the ports back in ide mode, it would probably work fine, but then you have no ahci support for your ssd.

Have you tried changing it in the BIOS. I know you said it's reading x4 but you made no mention about attempting to change it.

I second this post. Seems like sometimes with the Sabertooth all you have to do is manually change things if the board doesn't recognize it. It defaults to the lower just to be "safe".

What do you mean changing it? the x4 above is non clickable the only thing clickable is the gen which i have at gen3 which shows fine.

here is a pic see how it says the link bus is @x4 3.0 in gpu-z and cpu-z reports link bus at x4, is there an option in the bios hidden that allows me to change x4 x8 and x16?
