Hmmm... From the looks of it, don't buy this board until Asus has a confirmed, fully functional BIOS, or whatever the new thing is called.

In case you didn't see the OC3D conclusion, he was only able to get 4.6GHz on this board while he could get 5GHz on the Intel reference board.

So each board is different. I'm planning on grabbing a SB chip to mess around with but I'll wait until there's a bit more consistency.

These numbers are unbelieveable. The 2600K simply dominates the 980X in the Bit-Tech review! AMD can kiss its year goodbye.

Why isn't the Sabertooth Sandy Bridge reviewed also?
