Asus P67 Sabretooth... grrrr, roarz!?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is the only mobo series worldwide which is audacious enough to offer a 5 year warranty to reassure those who love to keep their mobos long long, there is simply no other choice if you belong to this category of PC users.

Actually VR did a very nice pictorial review recently which you may have missed,
ASUS SABERTOOTH P67: The TUF Pictorial by VR-Zone.com

Hopefully, these simple PnS photos do not duplicate any of their fine work.

Splash & EFI screens









Bits & pieces










Asus "Tactical vest"







Kaoz, even these caps are labelled TUF!




Asus "Thermal Radar Utility"







Quick bench at 4.5GHz with HW Monitoring
- let's wait for longsiew to add on his whack to kingdom come screenshots.


Hope you have enjoyed the simple shots.
Tick Tac Tock!

Any of the issues others seem to be having with the Pro and Deluxe boards? I'm really considering going with the Sabertooth but haven't seen many people with them yet so I'm not sure if it is having the same problems.

Think Asus just released a rash of new BIOS updates for all their mobos today so things may be different now.

this is the board I am looking to purchase. I wish they would have packaged an optional fan for that armor. Anyone know the size fan for that?

i think EVGA offers lifetime warranty.... but hey 99% of their boards suck. This is a little over the top, idk about a thermal vest but novel idea.

Military standard parts are qualified because they can go as low as -20c and as high at 150c, have more resistance to EMI and other other things like that but that doesn't mean internally they are top notch components, that just means they are better protected.

Also there are 28 Low RDS (ON) MOSFETs, ASUS further doubled them up, so it could be a 14 phase VRM, but ASUS put them in parallel as with the M4E, power output is not increased because the limiting factor is the core chore. But that board is a very good 8+2phase design even though its most likely slower in transient response.

Only a select few have lifetime warranties.

Why does the HWmonitor show a ASrock board?


8+2 phase. Glad they didn't screw that up
