sabertooth x79 vs RIVE?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
cant decide which one. i dont really overclock, and if i do very minimal. i only use 1 gpu, maybe at max two in the future, i dont really need all those extra sata ports, its mostly for editing and gaming. will spending the extra 100 bucks on a rive make the diffrence in gaming? or am i just wasting money on all the extra ports and pci-e lanes i wont use. i was even looking at a msi big bang, but dont think it will fit in a haf xb, and i really only like to use asus. anyone have opinions. just getting ready for ivy bridge e to drop.

For your needs, the Sabertooth is more than enough board for you.

Have you looked into the RIVF? It will do everything you want and it has been on sale recently for $329. I would get the RIVE but it is kinda overkill for your needs.

sabertooth hardly OCs at all rive is basically only for OC as you probably won't get something you can turn on and off and expect to be stable. Honestly regular asus line for you would probably be the best. only thing sabertooth does is last a long time but it does so at the expense of performance.. Also you won't get high ram speeds I don't think

Were you just guessing? You could not be further from the truth... http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/50312-asus-sabertooth-x79-motherboard-review-13.html
