So I'm putting together an FX 8150 system from scratch and by far the most difficult choice I'm having to make is the Sabertooth vs the Crosshair V. Aside from better LAN and more USB slots are there any other advantages to the Crosshair?

Hello. I plan on getting one of these bad boys, but could I possibly trouble someone who owns one to measure the distance from the edge of the board to the RAM slots? I estimate it at around 12mm from edge to RAM, but I'd like to be sure.

I ask because I'm trying to squeeze a radiator at the top of my case, so need to know how thick a radiator I can get away with.

Hi
I measured 20mm with the memory clips open and 25mm with the memory clips closed to the top of the CH5F motherboard
There is also a (heat sink 25mm),(power connectors 30mm to give room for the wires) and (fan connectors 20mm to give room for the wires) extending out from the MB at the top

Seems a bit crowded up there, but oh well, I think I'll still be picking one up this weekend biggrin.gif

I'll be sure to report back once I've stuffed it all in my casing.

Thanks for the help, Tweeky! +1UP for you

Look in the sabertooth topic. Seems like they have BIOS issues with overclocking fx-8xxx amd pci issues too apperently with fx and sli

Does anyone else's board seem to set stuff slightly higher than what it says in the bios? Such as HTT? NB? Core speed? I set mine at 300 HTT (bus speed) and CPU-Z shows it as 301. Or HT Link? Set mine at 2100 & CPU-Z shows it as 2107.2 Just curious if anyone else has this going on or if its just me.

Yeah, that's true, also the voltages are set a little bit higher, I think it's for stability reason.

As well as what some of the others were posting, the sabertooth is kinda just a ASUS gimmick...from what i've seen they aren't very good enthusiast boards.

trust me bro, go with the CH-V....you won't regret it....prolly the best investment i've made in my current rig
