[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Motherboards Club (TUF Series) - Page 103

post #1021 of 1591
Im not sure what to do Asus just sent me back a brand new retail box P67 Sabertooth .I bought a P8Z68-V Pro when i had to RMA my P67 Sabertooth figuring id just sell the Sabertooth when i got it back .But now im having second thoughts!!!!!!!! The P8Z68-V Pro is a great board and i really like it but i really liked the Sabertooth also.I like how simple the sabertooth is and it offers everything i need atm and the P8Z68 offers what i need and much more.To much more really.I find myself disabling so many things that its seems to be a waste using this board.
I know i might need some of these feature's in the future but i dont atm.


What should i do? What would you do? Sell the Sabertooth or the P8Z68-V Pro and why

Keep the sabertooth man. It's got everything you need like you said, same reason why I got mine. It has everything that I need. I don't need all the extra crap the p8z68-v offers. Sure I may need it in the future.. but by then I'll have my eyeballs on something newer and better. Like a board that offers pci-e 3.0 or something...

I decided that instead of getting an 1100t and upgrading to bulldozer later, I'm just going to get a Sabertooth+i5 now. I'll tell you when to add me on there biggrin.gif

before you pull the trigger in any SATA 3 SSD, keep in mind that the Marvell controller on the x58 board is crap, you are not going to see anything near 400MB read/write (Marvell controller maxes out at 400MB). The fastest I've ever got with a vertex 3 max iops was, around 350/240. So you are better off with some of the SATA 2 SSDs.

Has anyone measured the hole spacing on the mosfet sinks on the P67 sabertooth? I would love to throw some enzotech or thermalright sinks on the mosfets on this board.

Edit: It looks like an MST-88 might fit the upper mosfet sink. The rear sink is around 110mm long. I don't know of any aftermarket sinks that long. It looks like I'll be sticking with stock cooling.

I agree. In most random reads and writes its slower than the Intel ports and nowhere near as stable. I had data corruption with a C300 on the marvell port on my old P55a UD3. In fact I've had issues with the Marvel ports on my P45 too. I stay away from those now.
