ASUS X99 Sabertooth Owners Thread - Page 136

Still, I would amend what others have said as follows: If you want to use the stock fans, you should get the D15 unless you are worried about compatibility in the future. If you plan to replace the fans with those of a different color, I would get the D15S as it is cheaper (at least on Amazon) so you can save a bit of money. The D15S comes with the two fan mounts even though it only has one fan, so it works with two fans to give you the identical performance, and you would save money in the end.

Eh, nope. Buying D15S over D15 is NOT a good choice VALUE wise.

D15S = 79.9USD per Amazon
D15 = 87.9USD per Amazon

So what is the price of one single Noctua NF-A15 PWM fan? The really awesome quality 140mm PWM fan?

Cheapest NEW ones you can get is 22USD.

So let's do a simple math:

22+79.9 = 101.9 > 87.9

In the end you will end up paying more for purchasing D15S if you want better cooling.

And let us face it. We love new CPU, we love to overclock. We will only need more, not less cooling. As both WetMacula and I have pointed out that Sabertooth X99 works beautifully with D15, why would anyone pick D15S over D15 is completely beyond me.


I know you like your D15S stargate and you are trying to justify your purchase. But let us be honest, D15 is simply a better value here.tongue.gif

I think you need to read again what I said more carefully. I have nothing to justify.

He meant get the S if one intends to use different fans. Noctua fans aren't awesome but they are quiet and get the job done. I prefer Thermalright TY-140's. Another reason to get the S if one intends to use ram with tall heat sinks.

People would want to use the D15s to have their graphic cards(ones with backplates) mounted on the top slot on the Sabertooth. My asus Strix simply would not fit without the cooler pressing down on my graphics card, forcing me to put it to the next pCIE slot and having my intel 750 400gb occupy the first one. If I could have gone back in time I would have ordered the D15S. Performance with two fans and one fans isn't even that much greater. I only noticed a 1-2C difference .

the regular D15 works great with tall ram too, I have the Kingston Predators and they fit perfectly with room to spare!

Sadly in any case I can't go with the D15S even if I wanted to, as the two main computer shops where I live only have the D15. I am however wary because I've preordered one of the new EVGA 1080's and so I don't know how tight a fit it'll be. I probably won't replace the fans but if anything I'll be painting/dying them in the future if I can't stand the coloring.

Currently I'm using the Coolermaster Hyper 212X and it's plainly awful seeing as the most I can overclock my 5820K to is ~3.9GHz before it starts going into dangerous heat amounts during Prime95. Already time to upgrade I reckon.

My FuryX with backplate fits perfectly. Your 1080 should not have any problem

But wow, Hyper212 for 5820K? That is asking way too much for that poor little cooler.

Yeah that's why I am thinking of upgrading, on stock it actually works fine and keeps the core at 55C degrees during Prime95. I have replaced the fan with one of the Corsair AF120 series though as that had a better rating than the stock fan.

Believe it or not I ran my 5820k at 4.0ghz on a 212 Evo and never went over 55C while playing World of Warcraft. Yes I was shocked to but those little coolers actually do really well.

Mine got to 75C+ and rising on Prime95 at 3.9GHZ before I turned it off. As my plan is to get to the low 4's for daily use that isn't really good for me sadly.
