you keep assuming because YOU say something it is true, it isnt, the sabertooth is FAR superior to ANY am3+ giga board, old or new.
as above there are newer VRMS which run cooler, as to why the heatsink is HOTTER then the sabertooth, because of POOR thermal transfer
lol that is the most ridiculous thing i ever heard to be honest.. you should know better Mega.
The heat sinks are hotter NOT because of the hotter vrm's but due to the BETTER heat transfer.. seriously, what you just said made no sense at all..
I know this because i can actually measure my vrm temps on this board without any problems unlike the EC sensor on the Sabertooth that doesn't like to be monitored in the first place, but i managed to get some temp reading during stress testing.
You don't even own a new Gigabyte board and i actually owned the Sabertooth and now own the Gigabyte board.. I said the same thing about he UD5 vrm's that were also cooler than on the Sabertooth..
"basic thermal properties MORE surface area MORE thermal transfer" That doesn't make sense at all, what material they are made of is far more important than how thick it is.. as an example, a thinner copper based radiator will cool better than a thicker aluminum radiator its simply science.. I expected more from you Mega, i really do.
ok, i see where your confusion come from, let me fix it for you.
the sabertooth has EXCELLENT transfer from the VRMS
to the HEATSINK
, then FROM the HEATSINK
to the AIR
the GIGABYTE has SOME transfer from the VRMS
to the HEATSINK
, then POOR heat transfer
FROM the HEATSINK
to the AIR
resulting in a HOT heatsink, you want the heatsink to be COOL to the touch. this is cause by less surface area. and poor thermal transfer
the COLDER the heatsink the COLDER the thing trying to be cooled is ! you cant take a hot heatsink and have COLD VRMS
it is basic physics

Well I read the reviews over at johnnyguru for both psu's. Both excellent psu's with the supernova leading in price per performance. Also the AX860i has the ability to read the power usage albeit it's probably not accurate under 50% usage. As far as look I dont know they are both cubes sometimes rectangular prism's . I have not been able to test yet but I am wondering if now with this new psu, I could lower my vcore.
he seems to be correct, but corsair usualy fails on the price the most often if the corsair is same cost and all else is equal ( wattage ect ) go with the one that fits your color scheme in your buildEdited by Mega Man - 2/5/16 at 8:34pm
