I'm still getting the same USB 3.0 speeds with Windows 10 that I was getting with Windows 7. I only have a single 3TB HDD that came with a USB 3.0 capable enclosure. USB 2.0 vs 3.0 is a big difference on my PC. I did notice that in Windows 10 USB 3.0 just "happens" when you install the drivers and enable 3.0 in the BIOS. With Windows 7 you'll get messages about the USB 3.0 connection. I checked the speed and Win 10 is performing just as well.

Currently I'm using only a single drive as a backup. It can push anywhere from 100MB\s to 130MB\s while the RAID 0 setups & fast M.2 SSD keeps the backup drive moving along with plenty of data. I will be converting over to a USB 3.0 RAID 5 very soon. So hopefully I can increase the bandwidth to make my "entire" [all drives] backup less than an 1hr 30mins. My RAID 0 setups are getting converted to SATA III as well via the PCIe slot.

Hi there,

I have a gigabyte ga-x58a ud5 xeon x5660 and gskill pi 1600MHz cl6 2x3G

I want to upgrade the memos, so i think in buy 2x8 dual channel, cause is not a great penalty.

I asked to gigabyte suport about that and they told me the mobo does not support 8g modules and that the modules should be of this type:

Check with the memory manufacturer´s support, if the meory modules are doublesided
( 2Rx8 memory module, based on sixteen 256M x 8-bit DDR3-1333 FBGA DRAM chips)

Im a litle bit confused, any suggestions?

I could buy 4x4, so i solve 4+g modules limit, but asking to gskill about other features, they only sent me to memory suport (or some crap like that) webpage. There, they only show tri channel memos. Despite the fact that might i cant use these memos at other pc, here in europe (spain) could be difficult to buy trichanel memos.

My english is garbage, i know, sorry :-)

Thank.

Are you going to use only dual channel on a x58 board?

Maybe. 3ch is not a big deal, i think. In real uses, at least. Im wrong?

you will likely not see much of a difference from triple down to dual in day to day. If you are using a memory intensive application, you may notice a bit of a boost.

Running multiple dual, or a set of quad channel plus one, will not hinder the performance much at all. We X58 guys are just kind of stuck that way. Not much to choose from with triple channel out there. at least at a decent price, and enough capacity to make it worth while.

I would like to see if i could get my USB transfer speeds up a bit. What drivers are you referring to?

Gskill pi? ... 1600 6-8-6_(24?) 2t
These memos are neither gskill official web pge nor pccomponentes where i bough 6 years ago.

My problem is not to buy dual or tri (it is not dual or single, memos are ddr3), the problem is to know if the new memos are double o single sided and if it is important that memos were 256 8bits, 128 8bits ir so. I cant find datasheet. I would need to know the chip (micron, samsung) and see them.

Anyone here running a GTX 9xx card with x58? Unloading my SLI 770s today for a nice shiny 980Ti...used off Reddit or here of course.

There is pretty good DDR3 IC database

Sift through it and see what you can match up. maybe you will get lucky.

There is a specific Windows 7-64-bit driver for the Sabertooth X58 that uses the Renesas controller driver. It only works when the USB 3.0 is enabled in the BIOS, otherwise you get crappy speed. So if you have Renesas hardware on your motherboard it "might" work. USB 3.0 is definitely worth the boost, especially for a single HDD+USB3.0.

Believe it or not, but the Sabertooth X58 page has been getting updates in 2015 and now 2016. There's some specific updates for Windows 10 64 bit that I just downloaded and installed. This is nice biggrin.gif.


I am also conducting a test. I've always ran my Quad and Hexa cores overclocked for many years. Now after running my Hexa-Core @ 4Ghz+DDR3-1400Mhz [stable] for nearly 3 years straight. 4.6Ghz+DDR3-1600Mhz or 4.8Ghz+DDR3- for benchmarking purposes, I've been running my gaming rig at 100% STOCK settings across the BIOS to see if I can notice a difference in everyday performance. So that means no OSD during gaming sessions or no Frame Per Second being displayed, no benchmarking etc. Just straight up programming, working, developing, surfing the web, multitasking, watching and\or listening while working to online video services such as Netflix and gaming.

So far I'm noticing little to no difference for daily work and gaming @ 1080p\1440p. 4K gaming does require 3.8Ghz+ or 4.6Ghz for the best experience. I haven't been gaming @ 4K so this hasn't been an issue. This is really making me re-think about the upgrading process and if I REALLY need to upgrade. PCIe 2.0 is still plenty at the moment for my Fury X. Newer GPU have released and more will be releasing later this year and next year, but I don't think that will be a problem for PCIe 2.0 just yet. I'm just not experiencing problems while running stock settings. DDR-1333Mhz is doing pretty well actually. Video editing has slowed down so I haven't needed to worry about needed performance for that now. I'm also enjoying the much lower northbridge temperature and I'm talking up to 8c - 10c difference on the same HOT days.

I thought maybe the PC would feel a bit sluggish when it came to loading and performing a lot of tasks at once. Compile times are still very low, loading times are quick and gaming doesn't feel any different than before. Obviously with gaming for the best experience and frame rate you'll want to overclock to at least 3.8Ghz+. I can spare a few frames that I can't see since I'm not looking at them or for them.
