I am a owner of Sabertooth 55i and i would like to know what is the stable bios to download? Cuz i keep getting cpu error at start up cuz i'm running bios 606 and plus i'm puzzled why my ram is running at 1333mhz?

It's a Gskill Ram 4gb and timmings are 9-9-9-24 1.5v Should i be setting it XMP or auto or what? The bios is nice but a little confusing to understand compared the P5n-D i had. Help if you can please?? Thanks!

My friend will use the this pc for for 50% gaming and 50% video editing. I plan on overclocking to only a moderate level so that it will be stable. Of course I plan to have plenty of cooling, Noctua cooler, etc....

I'm just trying to decide how much ram he will need and which ram would overclock well with this MB.

I'm thinking either 8GB or 12GB (Win 7 64bit). He's not one to upgrade very often so I figured I would purchase more now to have a matched set rather than starting over with a new set of larger sticks in the future.

Does anyone know what would be a good choice of 1600mhz ram in this MB considering that we plan to overclock? I didn't see many 8GB or 12GB options on the ASUS compatibility list.

Also, It appears if I go with the Noctua NH-D14 cooler I won't be able to utilize any of the ram coolers on the market (not sure if the ram cooler is really necessary considering that I may leave his CPU at about 3.6Ghz).

Any ideas or advice would be great!

Thanks!
I just built a new system for my brother and he also games and is a video editor (he uses Avid Editing SW). I used:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145224
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D

Go with a 8 GB kit.

I would get a CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler This is the one I used on my system

Any help anyone? I don't think i'd need a bios update but i still get that annoying cpu error at boot up and i press F1 but i can get in windows anyways. Oh as for ram, i set my ram to XMP and i guess it set my timmings right but the weird thing is i didn't know it set my clocks too and now my processor has been overclocked mild, used to be stock 2.80 and now it's 2.89 which is nice lol. I'm running 1600mhz but the weird thing is in my windows system it shows @ 240 i dunno what that means.

Has anybody successfully watercooled the northbridge and/or mosfets? I need some advice on which water blocks were used.

I hate having my NB run this hot.

You're in the wrong thread, we have the x58 board.
Keep in mind that windows shows different values than BIOS and that's normal

There is no SABERTOOTH 5ii thread and it's the same brand therefore the bios are the same anyways. No difference.
