I purchased Noctua 40mm to replace the crappy assist fan1 that came with Sabertooth Z87. seems like it won't fit and has to be 35mm.

Yes, they are 35mm, ASUS website has the measurements of it on the specifications page.

Hello everybody!

I received and installed my board. smile.gif I updated to the last BIOS and I will post the pics later during the day, so that i can be a member.

The Board appears to run fine. Except from the top PCI-ex1 slot. Is this a bios bug or a design fault? I have found many threads in the internet about this problem. I know that the upper slot is shared with the e-sata ports and that the black PC-ex16 slot at the bottom, the black one, must be set to x1 in order for the x1 top slot to work, but that doesn't seem to resolve the Problem. Does anyone know which are the correct settings for this?

I have also tried several settings but never got it to work unfortunately.

I have found in another forum this thread. At the end there is the responce of the Asus representative, throwing some light to this case. It seems that we are gooing to have tis issue soon resolved via BIOS update The post is from 25/3, quite fresh:

Hi Guys,thanks to the help of ADSLNerd, this problem is replicated and is in progress of getting resolved via BIOS update.

Please follow the following procedure to re-enable the PCIEx1_1 slot:
1. Set "Advanced\Onboard Devices Configuration\PCI Express X16_3 slot (black) bandwidth" to "Auto".
2. Set "Advanced\Onboard Devices Configuration\ASM1061 Storage Controller (ES6_E12)" to "Enabled".
3. Set "Advanced\Onboard Devices Configuration\PCI Express X16_3 slot (black) bandwidth" to "x1 mode".
4. Press the "F10" key to save and exit.

You should then be able to use the PCIEx1_1 slot.

SOLVED

Ok, good news: I got it working!

Upon you guys request I opened the case and reseated the card. I don't believe it was seated incorrectly and I don't believe that my reseating it did anything really. However, upon starting my computer, I decided to enter the BIOS menu and do some more exploring.

I have an ASUS Sabertooth Z87 motherboard, so if anyone with this motherboard has similar problems doing the following might help you:

I did this earlier but didn't find anything however I decided to give it another look. I actually found a setting hidden in the advanced menu that, when setup a certain way, disables all 3 PCIe x1 slots on the motherboard.

The Z87 has 3 PCIe x16 (1_1, 1_2, and 1_3) slots and 3 PCIe X1 (1_1, 1_2, and 1_3). I have my graphics cards in PCIe x16 1_1 and PCIe x16 1_2. The InfiniTV is in PCIe x1 1_1. The option I found in the BIOS was specifically for the PCIe x16 1_3 slot. Basically it said that when set to a certain setting ("X4") it disables all PCIe x1 slots to save power. So I adjusted this setting, which was on "Auto", to "X1" which allowed all slots to receive power.

I saved, booted the computer, checked the devise manager and lo and behold there it was. smile.gif


I've already gone ahead with finishing the setup and contacting my cable company to bind the card and everything is now working perfectly.

I want to thank everyone for their help here, I really appreciate it.

Have you tried these solutions? Or anybody else with this problem? I would try it soon but I am away at the moment. Could you try these two solutions?
post #99 of 301
It has been a few months since I tried to solve this problem for me. But I think these were the suggested solutions I tried.
But they didn´t work for me.

I ended up using the first two PCIe slots for my graphics card and using the one at the bottom for my soundcard instead of the black one at the top.
Which might even be a better solution (for me at least) because that way the heat from the two GPUs won´t get trapped between the top GPU and the soundcard.

Just try once more especially the second one, with just changin one setting. The slot has power, which means that it's not dead (i can verify this too, the card reader doesn't show activity but the inserted usb flashes, but it's not detectable), which means that it's functional.Hopefully the BIOS update is on the way. Other than than the Board is really stable and I am happy with it. I will try these solutions myself and report my results here. Especially the second solution.

By the way, have you tried overclocking? I tried to find out the turbo ratios, so that I can increase it from there, without tweaking any volts, but there no "turbo boost" settings like in the Z68 Boards BIOS. 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.
