When it's @ 80c does the heatsink feel hot to the touch? If it does you should try putting a fun on it or speed up your case fans.

If it isn't hot to the touch, it may not be in good contact with the board. You could then pull it off, put some good paste on it, and re-seat it.

Thanks man, i'm going to check if the heat sink gets hot, and try to re-seat it. But mine is running 20c hotter than yours and idle, is that normal?

The heatsink on the NB its burning hot, I can barely hold my finger on it. While playing Dragon Age 2 it stays on a steady 96c, and my case is really getting hot. Any ideas of what can I do to keep things cool?

I have the Sabertooth x58 and I'm lovin' it!

^ 96c sounds kinda... crazy. ;o

I know. Today I kinda wiggled with the NB heatsink, added a 80mm fan on the side panel, plus I added a second fan to my Corsair H50 (push-pull setup) and temps dropped dramatically. NB temps are now around 70c Load, and 65c Idle, and my CPU is also running a little cooler, 38c Idle and 46c Load. So I'm Really happy right now.

Well here is a pic from the build log of my Sabertooth X58

Also can anyone give me some settings to hit 4 GHZ on this board with my i7 950?

200fsb x 20 multi @ 1.35vcore with llc enabled should hit 4.ghz biggrin.gif.

every chip is different but thats where i would start with memory at stock, dialing in overclocks is the fun part with x58 i only have the p67 version so maybe one of the x58 guys and give further settings biggrin.gif

Does anyone else have Intel Extreme Tuning Utility installed on their X58 Sabertooth system ? I'm wondering if that utility is actually showing the VID of cpu when everything is at stock settings. Mine shows Vcore to be 1.28125 V at stock settings. It would be nice to know if that is just some static setting that all boards share at stock values or does it depend on cpu.

I've tried it and found the voltage doesn't match CPU-Z. I think I have more faith in CPU-Z. For some reason IETU shows a higher reading.

That is just normal Vdroop. I'm interested in finding out if everybody gets same voltage shown in IETU with stocks settings or is that reading really the VID voltage.
