[Official] ASUS SABERTOOTH Motherboards Club (TUF Series) - Page 4

post #31 of 1591
Just got my 950/sabertooth/XMS3 in the mail today. First impression: awesome board with no complaints. Put the rig together, first boot successful POST no issues at all, all 6GB RAM detected both in the BIOS and Windows. Running some good'ol p95 with everything @ stock to make sure everything's fine.

EDIT: in the BIOS I noticed MCH temp was being reported at 57C, is that normal?

It is a tight fit for the top card. Idle temps for the top card increased about 5-8C (used to idle around 28C when I had just the one card, now that I'm running SLI it idles at around 35C). Load temps are a bit different, guess it's the nature of the Cyclone cooler. Playing BC2 for 30ish mins afterburner said the top card topped out at 75C and the bottom at 66C - which is still plenty acceptable if you ask me.

Don't see why a NH-D14 wouldn't fit, you should be fine. There's a PCI slot that will be above the top card, that'll be a perfect slot for a PCI sound card.

Anyone else help confirm this? or is this an isolated case for me? thx.

Any issues with the power phases on this board? It's only 8+2 right? I'm considering it but other boards have 16 phase. I want a stable 4ghz clock with a i7-950.

I love this board and everything about it. I'm the only one of my friends that actually likes the military green coloring.

It gives my HAF 932 some diversity from the normal red/black.

Thanks alot, i appreciate it, the problem was the prefetch, i enabled it and it shot the bandwidth up, thanks for helping out

And this is one amazing motherboard, only drawback is the PCI realtek lan, but i use a Bigfoot 2100 card, so it doesnt bother me.
