ASUS X99 Sabertooth Owners Thread - Page 142

I sometimes use Microsoft Update Catalog (even though it requires nternet Explorer with ActiveX) but it's a hit & miss.

For example, currently looking for Intel Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility) and all the results shown are for Windows 10 with the latest version being 10.1.1.14...while I'm on Windows 7.

My current version is 10.1.2.19 (newer than 10.1.1.14)...have no idea if it's the latest or not.


P.S.

Example #2:
- the generic name for the secondary LAN card in ASUS X99 Sabertooth is Realtek RTL8168 & RTL8111.
Searching for Realtek 8168 in WUC returns no good results while searching for Realtek 8111 returns 4 pages long of results, 95% focused on Windows Vista & Windows XP. rolleyes.gif
There are indeed 14 results dedicated to Windows 7 with the latest being dated in 1.11.2010 - driver version 7.13.1111.2010. wink.gif

Last time I searched for this particular driver, that is back in January or February, found driver version v7.97.1001.2015, dating from 01.10.2015.
That's 5 years difference from what WUC reports to be the latest.

I do remember getting 1 or 2 latest drivers from WUC in the past, but I can't quite remember which ones.

I may be doing things wrong with all this "latest drivers" search, if you have any advices, please help.

Otherwise, I find this whole process to be quite frustrating (and it's always been like this, since I bought my first Rampage, 10.000 years ago). sleepsmiley02.gif

For the same price , you still recommend the Asus X99 Sabertooth over the Asus ROG X99 Strix?
Which one have better overclock capabilities?

Can't decide between this two motherboards.
The only "cons" I see in the Sabertooth is that doesn't have U.2 port

They're for different markets; The ROG will overclock better from what I've seen, but the Sabertooth isn't too shabby either. Get the Sabertooth if you like the reliability, armour + backplate and the 5-yr warranty, otherwise the ROG is a good board. Price on both should be slightly down due to the next gen of boards coming out for Broadwell too.

I'm thinking overclock the 5820K around 4.0--4.5Ghz , not more "extreme" overclock and buying the Sabertooth it's about 20-30€ more expensive than the Asus Strix X99.

Really don't know what to do , I like them both

Hmm, that's pretty much what I'm going to go for when I get my D15 cooler on and I've definitely seen clocks in that area. The main benefits of the "serious" gaming boards is that they have more overclocking tools. I don't recall what these are as I just have the Saber, but it's still pretty easy to get good clocks.

As I said before, depends on weather or not you like the ruggedness of the Saber over the sleek gaming look and features of the other one.

Hey guys, apologies here as I have a noobish question.I have had a hunt through several pages of this thread but couldn't find an answer (I haven't been through the whole thread). Building a new computer, I have the 6800k and the X99 Sabertooth, IIRC, Asus used to have a renamer file when doing the USB bios flashback which I can't find on their site. Currently the file is named "SABERTOOTH-X99-ASUS-3101.CAP" - does anyone know what they naming convention is that I need to rename it to for Bios flashback? Or have Asus changed it so I can just use the above? Thanks in advance for any help.

Does anyone know of any compatibility issues with ram and this board? I have a 6850k and had gotten 2400mhz ddr4 corsair dominator platinum ram the 32gb Kit with the model number ending in c10. In the manual, it does not have listed under the QVL the model number for corsair dominator ram ending in c10, but it does for c13/c14c16, etc. can anyone confirm if this is the reason why I can't even get into bios and why the mobo speaker keeps repeating the signal for no memory? Thanks in advance!

Manual never said this board support 128GB ram yet here I am running 128GB over 2 months now.

Any ideas on what to do then? I'm definitely having issues with the ram as the board was tested before being sent to me. Idk if it's the c10 kit or just dead ram or what. Does anyone have any recommendations on what to do?
