post #60821 of 67911
A member posted about his X99 system running hotter on an Asus mobo compared to his previous MSI at same Voltage values in the BIOS. So it's possible that they (Asus Mobo) are reporting less Voltages than what they are feeding the chips.

Could be thermal paste.
Maybe bad applying of thermal paste.

Could be different ambient temp (summer-winter)

I know I won't be getting rid of my Vishera platform anytime soon but when Zen comes out I'll be getting that to be my AMD system (provided I can afford it tongue.gif )

Maybe in USA people think like that. Here people think "FX is EOL, there is no way i am buying a Sabertooth at this point.". Even those who want high perf, will simply buy the Aura, which is 50 euros cheaper.

I may also buy another board, just to free myself from the Gigabyte BIOS yoke ( i am not touching Giga again, i 'd rather run the ASrock 970 Extreme3, at least it's a normally behaving motherboard apart the heat), but it will be either the Biostar TA970 Plus (because i have already one and it would be good not to introduce 4th model and has beautiful BIOS, but i 've never really put it to work, has no USB3.1 and has analog PWM) or the Asrock 970G3.1 (which is like 8 euros more, has shaky 220W support which is plenty for me, but most interestingly, has USB 3.1 and in Newegg it has strangely very good reviews. The downside being that i would be introducing a 4th model and with probably the same troubling VRM of the 970 Performance). The UD3P has gotten into my nerves, it's like i feel suffocated. It may hang, reset and suddenly tell you that your settings are bad and you have to put them all back again. And do it again after 3 months. Or the front USB3 that powers on but doesn't recognize the drive. Or sometimes, you boot from cold and you hear a long strange beep, like if the POST gives error and then you get the normal beep and boots on. It's a crazy motherboard. The only good thing is that it runs very cool.

Yeah, you might not throw away your Vishera, but you will all be focused on Zen. I too still run AM3 CPUs, but haven't bothered with any Athlon II thread and i 've removed them from sig cause i was tired of updating all the rigs. Once you change your main rig, your secondary rigs are like forgotten.

With regards to the new sabertooth, there are reasons why it should be released. One is hardware feature upgrades. Like m.2 slot native.

2nd, let's face it, some people wear their hardware. I for one is an example. Swapping cards, pushing things, etc., made my CHVFZ a hack of the original. And already feeling a need of a new board but boards are little old for the liking at the moment that I'd rather wait for Zen to be worthy.

If they ever release that board, I might be buying one to keep the FX up to date with current features. I'd call it an update rather than an upgrade. thumb.gif

If you go Zen, the last thought you will have will be to get a Sabertooth class motherboard for Vishera. The same features of the Sabertooth you can find them on the Aura, or the Gigabyte Gaming. These should cover high demand overclockers.

For users that come from something like mATX 760 or 970 or in general marginal AM3+ motherboards, it means that they don't want to spend much, so for them, with 78 euros ($), you get the Asrock 970 G.3.1 that has both M2 and USB 3.1 and you 're golden.

Only a handful of people will fork 150 euros and it will be a bad decision. The Aura has everything an overclocker wants. It even supports SLI (the only 970 motherboard with such certification as ASUS boasts). it even looks better than the Sabertooth (at least for me).

First off, I'm not in the US wink.gif

Second, you'd be surprised how many people are running FX-6 and FX-4's gaming and they simply don't post in forums, they play games and are happy but as we know components fail and those people need to be catered for.

There are also die hard AMD fans that will only buy AMD, obviously Asus have a market otherwise they simply wouldn't create it.

and not to mention the people that only buy boards based on colour schemes, the Aura is mainly black/red but the Sabertooth is a more neutral tone.

I still use my FX rig albeit not as much as Skylake as it is a secondary rig and not my main but it still gets use (I have 4 other FX rigs that are in use by family members that I used to own tongue.gif )

He did a few thermal paste and block remounts. And he was running the same chip on an MSI just a day before. So less of those.

But yeah, X99 are implemented differently from board designs. Notable is the OC socket that Asus employs.

Oh, i know that many use FX still, here the FX is much more popular compared to what you 'd expect in the forum. But, i struggle to imagine how many would buy the Sabertooth for a platform that went EOL. But maybe because here they don't care too much about suiting colours. And black is neutral and fits with everything. But, yeah, different markets i guess.

It's alright mate, Not the first time I've been called Murican and won't be the last tongue.gif

I'll be curious to see how it sells and how it performs tbh

I wonder how many socket 1155 boards they would sell if they applied similar updates to a beefy overclocking board and sold at less than $125 usd. I bet intel would have it's undies in a bunch over it.

Oh, apparently the Aura is setting the new trend for ASUS. It appears that the Sabertooth R3.0 has programmable lights, so that you can suit the colour scheme of your case....

But i still like the Aura more. Plus, most likely, like the Aura, the lights will reset at every reboot, if they are software controlled.
