Right! Thanks for replying! thumb.gif

By the way, the shouldn't be any Problem with the Board actually. As stated above, there is a certain setting in the BIOS that enables al the pcie x1 ports.

EDIT: I performed the update. Board is rock solid, including the upper pcie-x1 port. Now everything is up to date and the Board is absoluty stable in every aspect.

Sweet! Guess I´ll be flashing mine, too.
I am still on 1405 or something I think.

Just upgraded to the newest BIOS. Everything looks good so far.


Just a nother quick question: Has anybody had the chance to directly compare the overclocking capabilities of the Sabertooth with another high-end motherboard?
I know that the motherboard itself hardly ever makes a difference, 100MHz or a few mV at most.
The question I am asking is, I recently sent in my CPU to be delidded (I know, I know...lazy me wink.gif ) and he got it running at 100MHz more with almost the same VCore on his Asrock Extreme board.
So, it just got me wondering. wink.gif

I put my ASUS Phoebus sound card into the lower slot and had no idea the top 1xpci slot was glitchy. Will update bios asap!

I haven't overclocked my Haswell yet. but I believe the Sabertooth mobo is a king when it comes to overclocking and heavy duty work.

Ok guys this might be a dumb question, so apologies redface.gif. I have ordered the H105 cpu cooler and I already have SP120 pwn performance edition fans. my question is how to connect them to my motherboard.. cpu fan? cpu opt?
post #117 of 301
Split them up equally on both headers.

If you only have push or pull configuration plug one into CPU fan header and the other one into the CPU opt fan header.
If you have push/pull config connect two fans to each header.


Don´t get me wrong, you could of course connect two fans to either header no matter what.
But if you split them up, it gives you slightly more control over the fan speeds.



EDIT: You could also go adventerous and plug one fan to the CPU fan header and the other one to any chassis fan header. This way could turn off the second fan when in idle.
Just saying. wink.gif

Thank you for your respond smile.gif

I connected the cable that comes out from my H100i pump that I'm currently using to cpu fan and connected both of my SP120 pwn fans to CPU opt.
am i doing it right? because i will do the same thing once i get the H105. is there anyway to set those SP120 pwn fans to AUTO mode instead of fixed? or it doesn't matter to run them at like 1500 rpm 24/7?.
post #119 of 301
Could another option be to use a header splitter and connect both fans on one fan header? Either the normal one or the opt.

Well, it turns out that the slot wasn't buggy after all. It is just a a Bios setting needed for it to be activated. wink.gif
