That is exactly what I mean. I found it out myself a couple of days ago when I installed my Sabertooth. I googled the issue and it appears to be a common, factory issue of the Board. There are Bios settings which supposedly configure the functionality of the slot but they don't work. Take a look at the links I have posted above. Even after RMAed Boards the new ones had the same Problem. Everything else except this is working fine.

There is something like "sync all cores" and "Cache ratio" or similar. Is that meant to be the turbo ratio and "sync all cores" the option to set the same value to all of them? What I want to do is set the turbo boost to 3.9GHz x 4 cores, without touching the voltages.
You can have a look at the overclocking guides on here or have a look the guide on the ROG forum. The Sabertooth BIOS is more or less the same as the one on the ROG boards.

Lol, you too, eh? This is almost a "feature" for this board. I was so "happy" to see that it's not my board but every board...

biggrin.gif Ha,ha let's hope that this will be resolved. If anyone else tries the solutions mentioned above with success it would be good if he would post it here.

@Someone09

Thanks! thumb.gif



EDIT: I resolved the issue!

It appears to be just a simple setting in the Bios. Only this, and none other recommended solution will work (I tested several bios settings). Now the USB 3.0 header card will be detected when inserted in the top x1 pci-e slot, the "faulty" one. Just do the following:

With every setting at the default value at this bios section just change the mode of the bottom (3rd) pci-e x16 slot (the black one) from "auto" to "x1". F10 to save and reboot! That's it! Your cards should be now recognised!

This means that the solution described in the second link that i previously posted was correct. That guy over there did it and I can now verify that it indeed works.

I have flashed the board to the latest Bios (1803) (from the beginning), if that matters.

That's good!

Please report back!

By the way:

1) Do you uninstall any components before updating BIOS (GPU or add on cards)?
2) Do you restore default settings?

I did not faced any problems with my pc whatsoever, but I did updated my bios today to the newest 1901 version. And the newest 1901 bios version installed nicely without any problems over the 1803 version. thumb.gif

And I did not uninstalled/removed any components before updating my BIOS (I think nobody does that anyway tbh).

After the BIOS has updated successfully your pc will be restarted and all the settings will be at default automatically (will be stated in the POST).
