ASUS X99 Sabertooth Owners Thread - Page 66

post #651 of 1958
Thanks, it was fun to build. It is possible to clean up the wires on top further by stripping down the case to the frame and routing them above rather than hanging them, but I was satisfied with the result so there it is. I might yet do it some weekend, but there's always a risk touching things rolleyes.gif

I should mention the m.2 SSD is on the bottom of the motherboard. There is about a 2mm gap between it and the floor of the case frame. and about the same between the SSD and the motherboard. Nice air gap for cooling.

Do you think I should try to overclock her? biggrin.gif

The Sabertooth x99 is in a black Corsair 780T so it's the same style as the ITX case but full tower thumb.gif

Getting closer....



post #655 of 1958
Greetings everyone,

I joined to thank you all for the contribution and maybe share a bit of my experience with the board (1st timer with Sabertooth, long time OC-er with ASUS and ABIT in the past).

I've been following this thread for a while and I found little to no information regarding on what is considered stable.

Opinions obvious differ and that's where quality actually is.

So please be so kind as to post your thoughts about how you personally achieved stability by sharing the following:

0.settings, voltages & voltage modes (adaptive, direct, offset) & BIOS revision
1.programs used
2.number of hours tested
3.max. temps obtained (please mention ambient temp too if possible, also if air conditioning was working or not)
4.memory OC or not (XMP or not)
5.uncore/cache OC or not


...and of course the reasons behind the decision of choosing a particular program over the other or using them all in the same time if that be the case biggrin.gif

3. Try to boot again. Pull the sticks and try the other 2 sticks
4. Try again. If at this point it sill fails, it's gotta be the memory cause that means it's not posting with that mem at 2133 (I believe that's what the board defaults to).
5. If you finally get a post, tweak the mem and see if you can get 2400 out of it. You'll have to loosen the timings as the timings they provide will be for 2 sticks, not 4.

Try that and see what happens.

Thanks for the suggestions. As I suspected, it is the board. I went out and bought some RAM today on the QVL and it behaves exactly the same way. Reset the BIOS, board complained about the RAM, hit MemOK!, still didn't boot.

As I mentioned previously, the two prior boards I had worked perfectly with the original RAM. So this one is going back too. Thank goodness for Amazon's amazingly simple returns. I'm giving up on the Sabertooth. Any suggestions for an alternate? My requirements are:

X99
Intel NIC (dual Intel NICs preferred)
Minimum of four PCIe slots (980 Ti, SSD, RAID, and sound card)
Lots of fan headers - I have 7 fans in addition to the CPU cooler.

I'm moving to the Rampage V Extreme this weekend. Check the specs, see if it suits your needs.

I have a problem, when I try to do overclock in adaptative mode, the frecuency in idle is the max frecuency, and the same with the voltage.
I put in the BIOS the next:
XMP
Sync all cores: 44
Adaptative mode: 0.001V + 1.294V


I made the same with offset, with diferent settings with the same result:


Help Me please

In your windows power options, go to advanced power options. Make sure you set minium CPU state to 5%. In this way the CPU can properly slow down to idle speed as well as idle voltage. Tested working on my 5820K 4.33GHz OC. During idle my CPU is at 1527MHz with 0.93v vCore. During load my CPU works at 4333MHz with 1.255V vCore with LLC at level 6.

Those are nice speeds xkm, with decent voltage too, is it stable?

What did you use for stability and for how long?
