Too bad because until that point it actually looked promising. The fact that it installed and opened was impressive enough.

I used DIP5 as well. It tuned mine to 4.5GHz with 1.293 Vcore. Too bad it completely ignored the XMP, leaving me with DDR4-2400 RAM. However it was a nice way of checking the limit of one's system.

According to this review, the lack of overclocking capability is generally due to the use of lesser MOSFETs

We suspect with more time we could hit 4.5 but 6 hours trying when we hit 4.5 GHz on the X99 Deluxe and Asrock X99 Fatal1ty board in 10 minutes we decided the Asus TUF Sabertooth just wasn’t as wiling a overclocker. Possibly due to the ON Semiconductors’ NTMFD4C85N (4C85N) dual N-channel MOSFETs which aren’t in the same class Mosfet as the International Rectifiers’ IR3550 PowIRStage MOSFETs used on the Asus X99-Deluxe and Rampage V Extreme. We can only tell you we much prefer the PowIRStage MOSFETS by far. Having second tier MOSFETS like the X99 A is a big strike against the TUF Sabertooth. Sure it’s $70 bucks cheaper than some of the other top end boards but a lot of compromises have been made here for that $70 dollar savings.

Funny.... i hit 4.5 with relative ease.... hell i even pushed to 4.6 with relative ease too..........

It could be argued you have a relatively good silicon quality CPU. I guess the only fair way is use a known crappy overclocker CPU that needs lots of juice to reach 4.5, then we can tell the differences between motherboards with different MOSFETs.

Did more digging around, the difference in extreme power delivery isn't that much. The MOSFETs used for our Sabertooth delivers up to 49A. while the ones on R5E delivers up to 60A.

That is correct, I have both Mainboards!

I'd have RMA'd the motherboard.

I currently have the RVE and soon, will be cuddling some kitties.

Any noticeable OCing differences?

hi guys, I purchased a sabertoothand I have the bios 1901, have to update the bios?

2001 yes you can.
2101 no you'd better not.


If your system functions well without compatibility issues you don't have to update. If you like to try new stuff, go ahead!

2101 is the best BIOS so far for my rig, but note the memory used is Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4-2800 4 x 8gb and using XMP only, no other OC'ing.

Plug & Play XMP profile 1 = 4 x 8gb DDR4-2800 @ 1.2v @ CPU / BLCK = 100
