My motherboard cooling fans on my Sabertooth Z170 stays on after I turn off my PC. What's going on? Everything else turns off. It's just those two fans that keep on spinning. Updating to the latest bios didn't fix it.

You can set how long the asst fans run after shutdown in bios monitor/q-fan control. Default is 1 min I think, got mine set to 5.

I'm using Z170 S, has anyone installed the audio driver from the Asus page? Usually I skip pass the AsusSetep.exe and run the original setup.exe from Realtek or Asmedia or whatever but there is a folder called ACPIPatch and NoHotfix, does this driver require an Asus hotfix? Is it safe to just install Realtek? I don't want the atkexComSvc or AsSysCtrlService processes installed which happens if I use AsusSetup.exe since those processes are always CPU active... About 4%-5%, they are in the ACPIPatch folder.

Is there anything different between the Z170 and the Z170 S besides the color? I've searched and couldnt really find a specific answer.

If you mean the Sabertooth Z170 Mark I and the Sabertooth Z170 S, the Mark I has dual gigibit LAN, 2 extra SATA connectors, top and bottom motherboard covers, a bunch of dust covers, a third assistant fan header, three temperature sensor cables, and a PCI-E adapter card for Hyper M.2 drive in addition to the onboard M.2.

Howdy fellow tuf owners!

Got a weird question for you. It hasn't been more than 2 weeks since I got my hands on a sabertooth Z170 S board, has worked fine with not a single issue. However today I was greeted with a display message that said bios was being updated and not to shut off the computer. I have not tried to update anything nor have I done any modifications in the Bios in the last few days. Has anyone ever had this happen?

I had that issue with my z170 S board, issue resolved with not installing AI ste 3 or the thermal program, go into bios and you can disable feature. Hasn't happened since then. Reason I did not install AI suite 3 or the thermal program is that I found the program to not work correctly to control the fans in my system and that the BIOS did a better job. Plus AI3 was eating up resources.

When I get home I can take BIOS screenshots and make a BIOS .txt file of my i7 5960x/Sabertooth X99 at 4.7ghz CPU/4.4GHZ 3200MHZ memory cache using Adaptive/Offset voltages I just got stable 1 hour RealBench, 1 hour stressapptest and 3 hours AIDA64 cache stress test and post them here. I'd post the screenshots of the stress test results as well.

I have a really good chip though and not many will get the same results but still many of the settings are valid for lower overclocks as well. drum.gif


See my signature below for voltages etc. They are nice and low for the clocks I'm getting. biggrin.gif

4.7GHZ_setting.txt 38k .txt file






Bios Screenshots below.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




















Disable the Serial Port, unused SATA ports, anything your not actually using like extra Ethernet port, whatever. I included a screen of a few SATA ports disabled.

To get the RAM third timings I set my RAM at 16-16-17-34 1T Manual, not XMP at 3200MHZ with everything on Auto except DRAM Ref Cycle Time 278, DRAM Refresh Interval (tREFI) 22066, Read To Pre Time (tRTP) 4, Four ACT Win Time (tFAW) 16, CAS Write Latency 14 (tWCL) but you want it lowest it'll boot at, tRWDR2 5, tRWDD 5, tWRSR2 4 which I tested stable at those settings with stressapptest. CKE Minimal Pulse Width (tCKE) is best left on Auto. I didn't change RTL IOL settings or IO Control settings.

Then I changed the memory to 2200MHZ, rebooted, manually set all the timings to what it was showing as on Auto for all secondary and third timings except the above what I already verified as stable. Then rebooted at 3200. Then I ran stresapptest again, passed, wouldn't pass if I did the same with 2133MHZ Auto settings.

This is how I quickly got good third timings, trick is get it stable with the first set of tweaks that work for you, then get it working with the rest stable with the lowest RAM speed Auto settings you stay stable at at your set RAM speed.

I don't have the ai suite installed but I will check the thermal option you mention. Cheers.
