Which bios update resolved the issue for you?

the latest one that came out for my board, can't recall. But you should see whats available for your board.

BTW: what kind of corsair memory are you running? What speed is it rated and whats the actual speed you are running it? Did you activate the XMP profile, which autimatically sets the memory speed, timing, and voltage? I remember that my brother had the same problem, and we found that it was improper memory settings. Double check on that.

nope, it usually runs at a lower speed than rated on the box, by activating the XMP profiles, you can choose the profile set by the memory manufacturer and sometimes it might give you the option to choose intel's profile.

Oh, I'm not having any issues but I did disable the C-states and most things that I didn't need like the marvel sata controller when I heard about these issues. I was just wondering which one worked for you.

I'm still on an older bios. I'm not having any issues so I'm not really in any rush to update. I will when the weather cools off and I can really stress test my overclock after the update.

Which model # for CMOS replacement battery for X58 board?

I'm going to try and see if replacing my CMOS battery clears up the problem I'm having with waking up from sleep mode. Maybe it's a weak battery after nine months. I'm desperate and will exhaust all my avenues before RMA.

^ don't be so scared about RMAing your board to ASUS, it took them 5 business days to return my board after they received it. Asus customer service is a little slow over the phone, but their RMA department works great. I mean, if it comes to sending your board in, you'll probably be a week without the computer, I know it sucks, but you'll rest assured once your board is back.

I recently had to replace my CMOS battery - it had gone bad after only 8 months. Whenever I would shut down my computer and unplug the PSU to install a new part/clean it out/re-wire manage, I would lose all BIOS settings (RAID array, overclocks, etc).

It will say right on it when you pop out the battery. I am at work at cannot remember 100% but it was either 2016 or 2032.

Good luck! Hope it resolves the issue. Either way, it's only like 5 bucks and will serve as a good backup later if it doesn't resolve your issue.

(Hey, I posted this in the AMD video card section, not sure if that was the right place as this could be a motherboard problem as well. Anybody know a way to solve this?)

I've got a problem that I was hoping you all could help me with.

A while back my old ref 6970 gave out, and I RMA'd and was sent a replacement of the new model by sapphire. In the meantime I got a smaller case and was using a gtx 470 as my main gpu. Now that I have a case that can accommodate the 6970 again, I removed the nvidia drivers and installed the 6970 in the uppermost pcie x16 slot of my sabertooth p67 only to get no signal to my monitor.

The pci LED on my motherboard is lit up when I have the 6970 inserted into the highest pcie x16 slot, however the gtx 470 worked fine in the same slot. I've even reinserted the gtx 470 into the slot and it works fine, even without the drivers installed my monitor still detects a signal and i'm able to access the pc as normal.

I then installed the 6970 into the bottom pcie x8 slot on the sabertooth, and it actually displays a signal.

I'm really confused, is this a card issue or a motherboard issue? It seems weird that the gtx 470 would still work perfectly fine in the upper pci x16 slot when the 6970 won't, but the 6970 is functional in the lower pci x8 slot.

The motherboard is up to date with the latest bios. I've tried clearing the cmos (also by removing the mobo battery) and it didn't fix the issue.

CR2032 3v - you were right. Replaced it and will find out if it works in due time.

Edited to add update: Well Nerdy the CMOS battery was the problem this whole time of racking my brains out and problem solving from RAM and BIOS settings.

Also thanks for everyone else who gave their advice and opinions. It's a great thread for ASUS Sabertooth owners of both X58 and P67 to come to with great OCN support. Kudos!
