Hi all I just wanted to chime in here that I just got my Sabertooth X58 this weekend. I have to say the build feel of this board is wonderful, plus the 5yr warranty is way cool. This is a replacement for a now dead P4 3.6 OC@3.95, The ole DFI lanParty toasted the cpu VRM. But it served for a good long time. SO it has become time once more to build. sadly the FSBless system is going to be a new learning curve to me and I am on a bit of a budget. I opted out of going to Sandybridge as I am old school in the fact I like to see a chipset and CPU mature a while, an idea of old school would be a 386 I had at 50 Mhz
So for now I have this hopefully sweet Sabertooth with a i7 950 using a CoolerMaster Hyper212 Plus with push pull For vid I got a HIS 5770 Power is my PC Power&Cooling 510 Watt supply. ATM I don't plan to wild OC but would like to see say 3.6Ghz. If this ASUS is as nice as I hope I likely will bump to a hexa core, 1.2KW supply again from PC&Power, and a Xfire setup.
When all is up I will shoot in benchmarking numbers, of course after a prime95 torture...
Great to be here
