As soon as I move the mouse all 3 screens go black with the right 2 flashing.. sort of going between black and dark grey. That's it. At that point I need to power down. There doesn't appear to be a log created with the final benchmark score either so I have nothing to post.

Maybe ASUS wasn't counting on this kind of screen config.. (1080p + 4K + 1080p) and it's messing up their video routines? Who knows...


The realbech should contain a portion of a video. It is the last testing section of the entire benchmark. If you saw the video(about a team of overclockers) then you were good. Otherwise your system probably failed during testing. That is a sign of instability. Realbench is a lot stricter than say, AIDA64 stress test.

InfiniteImp, maybe it's time to change your BIOS.

For my rig:

Vengeance LXP DDR4-3000mhz 4 x 8gb
BIOS 1901 was OK XMP = DDR4-3000mhz @ 1.35v @ CPU / BLCK = 125.
BIOS 2001 NOT OK XMP - couldn't use XMP at all.

Switched RAM
Dominator Platinum DDR4-2800 4 x 8gb (thank you Corsair for the swap out).
BIOS 2001 NOT OK XMP = profile1 DDR4-2800mhz @ 1.2v @ CPU = 125 / BLCK = 127.5.
(would drop a module on boot intermittently).
BIOS 2001 was OK XMP = profile2 DDR4-3000mhz @ 1.35v @ CPU / BLCK = 125.
BIOS 2101 is OK XMP = profile 1 DDR4-2800mhz @ 1.2 @ CPU/BLCK = 100.

In my experience, two sets of different ram had issues with 2001.

I'd suggest you go back to 1901 or move forward to 2101.

Turns out the problem was me. Now that I looked more closely I was aborting out of the benchmark during its run of LuxMark. That killed it. I just wasn't waiting for it to finish. After LuxMark it did the encoding tests and then finally finished. Course, that was at 3.5 stock so I came up with 84655. I tried to reset back to my OC and no matter what I can't get it to successfully boot. I retrieved my known working OC profile and it just won't boot. This isn't the first time. This board has issues.

Yep that's what I'll do. At this point I can't boot with my 4.375 OC so off to 2101 and let's see what happens with it and my G.Skill DDR4-3000. I have to go out now so I'll mess with it when I get back. Last time I tried OCing with a BCLK of 100 I managed a stable 4.3 OC. Let's hope 2101 does better.

XMP kinda sucks for me on 2101. However i do get more stable as well as higher CPU OC on 2101.

Moose, come on man, we are waiting gor your 5930k OC report! You get top of the line AIO, dont waste the potential.

Also moose, did you ever try to unlock your Fury to full 4096sp?

With BIOS 2101 I can't even post using my XMP profile. The profile still uses BCLK 125. If I switch to BCLK 100 it still won't post with the memory at 3000. I have to back down all the way to 2400 before I get anywhere. This really sucks. This is all at stock speeds. I even bumped the ram voltage to 1.36, still nothing.

When I have a little more time I'll see if I can get my old 4.375 OC back using BCLK 125 but so far it doesn't seem willing.

Is there a specific approach to applying new settings that you guys recommend? I get this feeling that just changing BIOS settings and rebooting isn't enough.. almost like it's remembering some part of the previous settings. Now, I've tried the CPU power switch off/power up approach to at least make sure the board is completely without power but it doesn't seem to help here.

Apart from memory voltage, what else affects the board's ability to successfully boot with faster ram?

I'm sitting here and thinking.. should I just go and get a Rampage V Extreme? I've only had the Sabertooth for a month but it's making me jump through more hoops than I'd like.

Man that sucks. I am sorry it turns out to be like this. I definitely feel your anger. 2101 totally dropped the ball for me as well. As a matter of fact the only positive result I've seen about 2101 is from moose and another guy on ROG forum(edit: my bad, on 2nd check it was moose as well.)


I believe most X99 mobo from ASUS have some kind of problems. Which is why when you browse through their BIOS section you can see the majority of BIOS are branded as "System stability improvement." Our sabertooth x99 is the newest one among the ASUS X99 lineup, so it is bond to have issues.

If you have time and money I would say go for R5E. After all it uses the best quality components as far as ASUS can get their hands on. In terms of OC I am sure R5E should be better, as well as stability.

After digging around, I found a setting in the RAM advanced settings: DRAM SPD Write

This setting appear to be able to edit whatever SPD information you have stored on your RAM stick. From certain point of view it seems this option will allow the motherboard to update the firmware of the memory sticks! I might be wrong though. Anyone tried it yet? I turned it on and nothing happened so far.
