Well that highly depends on the Ussage realy.
A Quadkit like 4x4GB will be a benefit for video rendering and productivity workloads for example.

But in terms of gaming, there is no benefit for quadchannel ram atall.
No matter if you use 4x4GB quadchannel or 2x8GB dualchannel, there will be no significant diffrence wenn it comes to gaming.

Same can be said about memory speeds in general.
Highspeed memory kits are not realy that much of a benefit wenn it comes to real world performance.
There are only a very few scenario´s in which high ram speed is a benefit.
Like wenn you do allot of things in ram, or you compress realy large files etc.
But for most use case scenario´s like gaming, there is not realy much of a benefit atall.

I´m pretty sure that some people would disagree with me smile.gif

Finally got all the components for my new workstation besides the PSU! Of course, that had to be the last thing to ship and I won't be getting it until next week... I started to connect everything but I'm a little confused as to how I should be connecting the case fans. Could anyone confirm that what i did makes any sense? It's been a while since I've done a full build... *cough* Sandy Bridge *cough*...

So I connected the Swiftech controller to the CPU_FAN port as instructed by the H240 X2 manual, and then connected all the 3-pin case fans to the Phanteks fan hub that came with the case. Phanteks recommends connecting that hub to the CPU_FAN port, but other ports are supposed to work from what i understand? I currently connected the 4-pin from the case hub to the CHA_FAN2. Should I use the CPU_OPT instead or it really doesn't matter?

Thanks!


Quick specs:
Asus Sabertooth X99
i7-5820k
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400 4x8gb
Swiftech H240 X2 Prestige
Asus GTX 980 Strix
EVGA Sueprnova P2 850W
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe (Black)
SSDs, HDDs, etc...

I am unable to get Windows installed on of my SSDs if they are set in a RAID volume. Windows tells me the drives are not bootable, and the BIOS won't let me select them as bootable, either; it only reads the two ODDs I have connected.

If I setup the RAID array through EZSetup, I can boot into Windows but I run into the problem above. If I reboot the computer, the BIOS pretends the RAID array is not usable entirely when I go to the EZSetup; it will detect it but I cannot do anything with it other than delete the array in advanced mode and start over. Windows won't even let me format the drives, whether installed as a RAID array or independent.

Resetting the BIOS didn't help. ASUS tech support suggested calling Intel, but that basically just means that I need a new motherboard. What gives? These drives are leftover from a previous system in which they were the boot drives, but I should just be able to overwrite them.

Any help that means I don't need to turn my motherboard in for a return would be greatly appreciated! I am on vacation from work this whole week, so an RMA basically means I won't get anything back until my vacation is over and free time is gone.

Edit: OK, I managed to get Windows to install on a single SSD. But, if I enabled RAID in the BIOS, everything goes kaput again. Is a RAID volume not a possible boot device anymore? If not, I'll have to go M.2 for games. Someone just tell me this is all normal and I don't need to RMA, please!

I finally figured out what this guy was talking about:
http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?p=36706465#post36706465
And now it works. Why would using the new BIOS type (UEFI) make bootable RAID impossible? This seems like a huge boo boo on the part of the tech people who developed this. Surely there is a reason...

Anyone know if Asus Dual intelligent processors 5 will work with the Sabertooth X99 boards? If so is it worth giving it a shot?

OK, new problem that took awhile to fix... No matter how many times I installed the RealTek HD audio drivers, I did not get sound out of my speakers. I had them plugged in correctly to the rear I/O panel for 2.1 sound. Must have had to do with Windows Updates not done completely.

Any suggestions on which M.2 drive to get? I'll use it for games.

I just ordered this one tonight, the 512 version but there is the 256 version to. It's currently the best and fastest on the market though there should be some alternatives coming out in the next few months to next quarter or two.

I saw reviews that said the same thing, but I am worried about thermal issues. Would it be plug-and-play in our systems or would we have to mess with the BIOS settings?

Iv heard some people use these. As for bios issues, I think it's just a matter of plug and play for some boards and others just a matter of driver d/l for others.

I have some copper heat sinks left over. However, with how the M.2 drives are installed, you can only place them on one side of the drive. I would think it wouldn't help.

Hi guys. I'm a bit confused. Well, let me explain. i had an rampage iv extreme, used it for a long time, in pair to a 3960x, was a really great rig at the time. But then, the thing just killed my cpu, suddently, just gave a warning, restared the system, and my cpu was then, fried. So, thats was scary. A top notch mobo killing cpus even on an enthusiast user, thats sad and scary at same time. So I decided, lets upgrade to x99 earlier, and thats it. The mobo I was looking for, is exactly the Sabertooth, it looks amazing, it's an standard atx size, and is "reliable" (at least they advertise it), but then i start to dig my research on asus x99 series, an hell no: it's killing cpus all over the place...damn, thats hard to believe, i tought i had an defective board with RIVE, but seens asus has this bug in their motherboards. I know the incidence is little compared to the number of mobos selled, but it really bugs me. The worst part of it is that ASUS dont speak 'bout the subject matter at all, leaving users with some sort of timebomb at their systems...I really want to know if there is any story of dead cpus with the latest bios releases (they could had been fix it in recent releases, but the changelog only points "improved system estability" or something like that). Anyone using this board with no issues at all around here? I really like this board for its features, b;ut spend around 2,5k dollars down here in Brazil, and have my new and expensive cpu killed, will not be that nice...i'm sorry 'bout my english, but i tried to do my best smile.gif
