New 2001 bios out for P67 sabertooth, apparently only reason for the update is it supports the new 22nm chips, but they aren't out yet, so I don't see the point of upgrading over the current 1850 given the 2001 bios doesn't do anything else other then add 22nm CPU support

How do you have the two 560 ti's in SLI and the 550ti ?

You running the 550 in the bottom pcie slot? Wouldn't it have very little bandwidth? I guess it's plenty for physics...

Got a question. Do any of us HAVE to update bios? Cuz the reason i asked is because i have never had ONE problem from my motherboard. But the thing is if i wanted to overclock,sure i'd have to update it. But is it highly recommended to update bios even if you're not overclocking? I just don't wanna risk any problems if i don't have a problem with my bios at all?

Cuz downgrading bios is VERY tricky and i seen a thread about that in ASUS forums. However i just wanna check if it's needed to be updated? Do you update each bios til the last recent version or just the final version update?

I have updated bios before but that was 775 socket eras and it's been a long time since i updated again and i'm a lil rusty. I know it's not hard. I just wondered if it's really that important to update it anyways? Advice?

You do not HAVE to update bios, but I would recommend it for stability. I don't know specifically about the i55 sabertooth, but the x58 and p67 should have the newest BIOS if you are OC'ing IMO.

I have noticed stability increases on my sabertooth sytem with the last few updates. Most of them have been patching the ****ty ass Marvell controller bugs though, so they're not necessary.

Yea that's what everyone has been saying if you're gonna really overclock then it's recommended. I oughta check ASUS forums to find more results and answers.

Thanks to Thermal Radar we now have even more parameters to obsess over- under load (ie. during games) the usb front header temp hits low 70s centigrade and the SATA 6 temp is not far behind. I took this screenshot after ~40 mintues of Shogun2 at 1080p ultra settings:

I'm certain it's the video card's stiffener plate/heatsink, which gets quite hot. I've circled the area here:

Do you guys think low 70c is OK?

Does anyone else have this experience?

Thanks! Wish I found this forum a long time ago...

Having the same issue as you.

High USB 3.0 temp, as well as PCI-E 16x 1 and 2 being very hot (70c)

Hey guys I have just run into my first "issue" It may be bios related though. Can't remember what bios I have though. I'm having issues disabling speed step. My system runs at down clocked 1.6ghz or turbo all the time. I have never seen it run at the standard 33x multi. I would like to run at the normal 3.3ghz all the time cause I fell like the speed stepping is killing performance. It will only kick into turbo when stressed so unless it is doing heavy work I'm slugging along at 1.6ghz and its driving me nuts. I'm going to flash to the latest bios and see if that helps any. unless you guys know how to set up to disable speed step all together which is what I want.


EDIT:
oh ya. Sig system is the one in question. Sabertooth P67, 2500k, and win 7 64bit.
