The two I listed from the latest QVL are the ONLY 2 on there for 128 GB U-DIMM usage. That's not to say others won't work, but those are the only ones they officially added.

Yep, and that is well worth noting. thumb.gif

I choose to ignore certifications of that sort and shop based on price tags biggrin.gif

Basically I think at a certain point you're not doing yourself any favors by obsessing over which settings to choose, or whatever, because from experience I know that everything will just make a whole lot more sense once it's up and running in front of you. And the BIOS/UEFI these days provide you at a sentence or two of help for almost every single option.

Probably a sane procedure (in high level terms) might be

1. speed step off, push up to 1.25v or 1.3 or 1.2 depending on how much heat you can or want to deal with
2. find stable point after a few boot & tweak cycles
3. tweak ram clocks, timings, voltages. Bunch more boot & tweak cycles here
4. Don't forget to also work on increasing uncore and cache clocks and voltage, as real perf gains are to be had here
5. maybe flip speedstep back on and use offset voltage. This way the machine will be more power efficient when idle. How important this is to you is very subjective.

I get a kick out of conserving resources. Even though my house is now fitted with solar panels and electricity is by leaps and bounds cheaper than before there is still an inherent satisfaction to be had when your device is capable of sipping power when it doesn't need more. In my case I will have a PSU and a GPU which both have 0 RPM fan curve modes, and besides the Sabertooth will let me plug in and control all the rest of the case's fans, so when I can limit power consumed I can experience that golden silence.

Thanks for the feedback Unphased! I'm not too concerned about the values, but mostly about which parameters to change in the BIOS. As far as overclocking goes, I will probably stick with a 4.0 or 4.2ghz overclock with an AIO cooler (probably Swiftech h240x or x2 (coming out very soon if not already shipped to resellers)) as the applications that I use are very CPU oriented (3d graphics) and will cap the CPU load in the 90-100% range for a few hours at the time. The fan control is one of the many reasons why I'm looking at the Sabertooth too!

Hey guys, sooooo my overclock failed and Crashed while gaming, so I just set everything to default without taking pics or remembering my settings So I could come here for advice..... Can someone help me get around with a decent overclock and some new testing methodology for me so something like this doesn't happen again. I'm open to anything that could be helpful.

Maybe first stress test wasn't the greatest since I only used ASUS ROG RealBench for like 2 hours+ i think

Hi all , just thought I would share with you , I have just fitted a Swiftech H240x onto my sabretooth X99 / i7 5820k clocked @4.3 , ran some tests , and I have to say I am impressed . I was using a Corsair H110 GT i , which was doing the job , but was very noisy at high temps . The Swiftech is about 6-7 Deg C cooler , but the main bonus is it is almost silent ! so If you are thinking of water cooling try the Swiftech , and it has the added bonus of being upgradeable as it uses standard water cooling fittings and the resevior can be topped up . I also tried the EK indigo Extreme thermal interface , bit fiddly to get right , and maybe a 4-5 deg C drop at low usage , but bigger drops at high usage 10-12 deg C on prime 95 which i was very pleased with ( some of this drop is obviously down to the new cooler as well .) .

I just used intel extreme tuning utility , changed the frequency to 4.3 , clock to 100.2 and volts to 1.212 . runs at those settings all day everyday . I am using a swiftech H240x with some of the EK Indigo Extreme thermal material . Obviously you will need to tweek these a little for your mobo and CPU , but they should be very near . If I look at all the various BIOS settings my brain just screams and runs away , and I just sit there like some idiot . Not really a fan of the ASUS AI suite , which is why I tried the intel XTU , has a good stress test built in which is adjustable for length of test . I also use IntelBurnTestV2 , this is a nice quick and easy test to run .

That's some pretty good news! As of this week it looks like it's possible to order the H240 X2 directly through Swiftech's website, I really can't wait to try it out. No idea when it'll become available here in Canada though.

know how you feel , they still only list the old model that I got here in the UK . The new models look really nice .

Hey you Sabertooth owners, do you use the 40mm "assistant fan"?

I already put mine on, but i reckon the board will be totally a-ok without it. Do you guys notice any noise coming out of it? I figure I should be able to slow it down enough with fan control so that it becomes a non issue.

I have mine on too , only notice it on shutdown , when it runs for a few seconds
