Thanks for the advice in advance for anyone who responds.

juz leave it.. bios update are not meant to be done regularly unless you are facing some problems

As he stated, unless you have any issues, maybe stuck at a lower OC/random BSOD's with newer RAM modules/etc.

Thanks guys - I will leave it. I had an issue with BSOD with my new AMD 6870 but only after I updated to 10.12 driver when I'd come back from power savings mode. I ended up changing the card anyway for personal reasons and that took care of the problem. Hadn't had one since. I was thinking RAM but since I had just updated the video driver I was going to back down to the last driver. Though after refunding my video card for a better one that cleared the problem and I didn't have to look into possible RAM issues. If it should happen again however I would update the BIOS. Like you guys said don't fix something that already works. LOL. I'd hate to update it and then start having issues.

Thanks again for you advice.

I had been running at 10-10-10-27 when I noticed that maxmem had 9-10-10-27. I didn't believe it so I opened cpuz and it showed the same thing. I then run some stability tests and they passed so I went into the bios and saw that I still had it set to CAS 10, so I put it on CAS 9(it was working there anyway, right). So then I booted and it was @ CAS 8, I passed more stability tests so I went into the bios to actually set it @ 8, but it would not boot. I figure it tried to boot @ CAS 7. I then set it back to CAS 9 and it booted @ CAS 9 like it should. Wierd huh? I went to bed then.

I may install the new bios rev and see if it still does it. I'm going to save my 0702 that's been working for me though since it's not available on the asus website.

Anyone else experience this?


Edit:

I updated the bios to 0802 and it still does it. I've realized now that it's booting to 9-9-9-24 but it runs 8-9-9-24 when I bring it out of sleep. It does the same thing with different timings. Boot to 10-10-10-27, you get 9-10-10-27 when you come out of sleep. I guess I could ask ASUS.
I also had the same issue. I set my ram to 7-9-7-24 and CPU-Z was showing 6-9-7-24. I had just overclocked that same day because I messed around with the EVGA overclocking tool which doesn't work without an EVGA bios and it apparently tried to overclock with no set values, so I had to reset CMOS.

I was sure that I set it to 7-9-7-24 and sure enough that's what it was in BIOS but CPU-Z was showing 6-9-7. Booted back into windows and it showed the right timings.

I haven't given it much thought since then.

Is it running fine with timings cpuZ shows ?
If yes, it's better that the ones you set.
But, I agree, it's a kind of not normal.

For me it runs fine with the better/tighter timings, which is great. The problem is that I have to put the computer to sleep and bring it out to run them. If I set them to the lower CAS in the bios then it goes one more and is unstable out of sleep because it is one lower still.

Either it's running like you want out of cold boot, or running like you want out of sleep. Not both.

Cold boot = CAS # in bios

sleep resume = CAS# in bios - 1


Is it a sabertooth mushkin thing? We're not running the same modules; mine are higher latency and higher density. I'm running 998969's.

Haha that's weird. I just noticed all three of us are running Mushkin.

As for the CAS latency going down it seems to run fine. Honestly the only way I found out was because I was running validation of CPU-Z for the i7-950 overclockers club and when I looked at the page it said 6-9-7 and I was like

Let me check and see what it is if I throw this rig into sleep.

EDIT: Son of a b****! It is linked to sleep mode! CPU-Z just said 7-9-7 before sleep and now it says 6-9-7. ARGH!

I have a weird issue that has popped up and is totally ticking me off. It just started out of nowhere and I have no idea what to do. It must be something simple I am missing but I have tried everything. I even called Asus walked through it with them and still no luck.

My Problem...

I have speed step and all c states disabled. Normally around 1.27vcore I run about 78c load and do about 54 Gflops.

One day while trying to push to 4.3mhz, I noticed my temperature was at 84C and I was doing 5 gflops. No big deal right? things fluctuate. But on closer look, I noticed that what was happening is my multiplier was kicking down! I went through the bios, I reset al the jumpers, pulled the battery etc. nothing.... every time I ran any testing program my cpu multiplier would drop 1 or 2 steps and the temp was always 84c?!? i turned the voltage to 1.3v ...84c....1.1v...84c....50 gflops......I have no freaking idea what is happening or how to undo it. Flashed latest bios for the sabertooth x58 [0802] 84c....50gflops....multi kicking down....

When i bought this board the first time the on board sound was dead. I RMA'd it and now newegg will not take this one back because technically my problem is not a problem....so im stuck with this board. Help.....

What little dumb thing am I missing...lol Im sure its something Im doing...

Yes im running at High performance...no i cant set the cpu to minimum 100% max 100% there is no option for it with speed step disabled.

Ive tried it with XMP enabled, ive tried it manual. Ive tried it all...

Hi, sabertooth owner here

Everythings working fine except that USB 3.0 and eSATA doesn't seem to be working for my external HDD

When I connect the exact same HDD to a 2.0, it works

As in not working, it doesn't show up in Computer

And yes, it's formatted properly
