Sadly you likely won't be able to overclock much more. But then, for the price you paid, anything extra is a bonus.

Hehe, yeah this is a build for a friend, he need something cheap but still can game okay. I am going to give it a good run through, i don't intend to Oc much at all anyways because he likes a stable trouble free rig.

If i can find anything interesting ill post here but i don't expect much more out of it really. biggrin.gif

i would probably just go for the sabertooth fot the price but if your willing to splurge for the pro go for that, I personally owned the formula it only has 4 dimm slots and its vrm's overheated a lot until i put it underwater.

Yep! I originally bought my E5-2670 pair for 67 dollars a piece and currently waiting on the Z9PE-D8 WS board I bought from Bigblock at the marketplace to arrive to build my 16 core CAD/CAE Workstation. biggrin.gif

Last week I saw them around 65 a piece but man if it drops close to 50.... These chips are a steal if not already!

The Sabretooth Line has had many noteable models. Highly unlikely it's a bad choice....if it has the features you need, that is.

"There's a lot when it comes to the Sabertooth line and what it ultimately all comes down to is that ASUS create this motherboard that carries with it a massive 5 year warranty. For people who hold their system for a significant amount of time, this is a real bonus. Considering the associated cost of an X79 system, the chances are you'll probably not be upgrading any time soon."

The price is raising, 71-74$ and raising, still a good buy.

I like the X79 Sabertooth, runs my E5-2670 just fine. Still the turbo downclocks running BOINC primegrid, stays where it should running BOINC WCG.
Not temp related, it is the wattage doing it.
Can't wait for the V2 Ivy bridge prices to plummet.

i checked and it was due to the fact i didnt run anything in the background. i put 100% load across all cores just fine.

last snapshot of setting i think i am going to stick with.
107bclk - ddr3@1997mhz - 3.2/3.5ghz turbo. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



gonna run some games now and see how well it does.
