X79 Sabertooth Issues

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new Gaming PC which has an X79 Sabertooth, i7 3930k, gtx 680, 32gb ram and put it all in a Coolermaster Haf X case. After I built the PC and installed Windows and my software I needed, I decided to update the BIOS. First I updated it with the CAP converter, then I updated it again with the newest BIOS version 3102. I see now there is a version 3203 but I am not sure that I should update to this version. I sometimes have some issues when I go into the bios, not changing anything but mainly just looking around at fan speeds and such. When I try to exit the BIOS, my PC will freeze up and I have to turn it off and back on. Windows itself does not freeze or anything its just the BIOS that does it. I'm not sure if the new 3203 version will fix this or not, I'm afraid to upgrade and mess things up even more.

Also when I updated the BIOS, I used the white port in the back with a fat 32 usb drive and had the cap converter file on it renamed like it was supposed to be. I hit the button and all it done was sit there and stayed solid blue for 10 minutes and never went out so I just unplugged it. I went into the BIOS and it said it updated though so then I updated to the 3102 version and then it started freezing up.

If you guys know whats up with this thing I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks in advance!!

Try removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes, then flashing to the newest BIOS. Sounds like something went wrong when you updated it last time.

I removed the battery a few days ago for about 5 minutes but it still showed the same version I had before I removed the battery. Is it supposed to reset the version or should it stay the same?
