Asus Sabertooth P67 and Heatsinks - Page 3

post #21 of 46
Sigh...I can't believe people are so queasy as to be afraid to touch heatsinks...
Haven't any of you ever removed heatsinks on a board before, or even a video card? I used to remove the greenies on my Abit BH6 to apply thermal paste to the BX chip, then had to work the push pins back in...

Plus, removed the heatsinks on every videocard I've ever owned (even the Geforce 4 and the famous epoxied heatsinks..took a good card in the freezer trick to do that...)

I even removed the entire heatsink assembly on my P5WDH Deluxe once (to scrape off the crappy Asus almost epoxy like goop and put on some Ceramique.

Your motherboards are not going to crumble apart in your hands if you touch the heatsinks. Just take time to look at the layout and learn how everything is mounted.

And no idea why some of them have play and others don't. Might want to make sure they're securely mounted on any future installs, before putting them in the case.

I have removed lots of stuff off the motherboard and you really didn't need to take that off. He was just curious why there was an arrow. I think it's for something else such as taking it off and applying thermal? I have a new motherboard and i ain't gonna risk breaking something he wanted me to try so i had every right to say no.

Also.. the ceramic coating which you see the arrow applied to the heatsinks are credited for a 50% improvement in surface area contact, resulting in far better heat dissipation. This of course translates into better clock-ability for the motherboard…theoretically. The board also includes “TUF” branded MOSFET’s and capacitor’s which seems to imply higher quality for better reliability and longevity.

That's just there for a reason. Someone can take them OFF if they wanna do something else with it such as modding i guess. Which is WHY you shouldn't take them off. I don't know why you even messing with that in the first place?

I don't mean to derail the thread, but wanted to ask very quickly, does the Sabertooth P67 OC just as well as the P8P67 Pro?

Well i just did research, someone DID say they are not made for overclocking but i could be wrong. There is a sabertooth thread in this forum.

Check here. http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...-club-tuf.html

I also found this what these red arrows are..

Black accent coloring also adorns the cooling solution as well as highlights in the form of red arrows. I think these are designed to resemble warning signs, or directional indicators found on some military vehicles

In a review. It's just there. You're not suppose to move them LOL. You just voided your warranty probably i dunno.

Overclocking results. Just remember there are so many reviews on it but here ya go if you guys wanted to learn.

Overclocks extremely well. Currently on a 24/7 4.5Ghz and still going lower and lower each night on the voltage, still haven't failed a prime test yet. This board has given me way better results witch overall stability compared to the flagship board from gigabyte , the UD7. Love this board!

my build log http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...t-me-some.html Lots of pretty pics!

Will be testing tonight at 1.330V on my 4.5Ghz OC. Hopefully i can get it down to the 1.2v area.

That's good to know dude. How are the temps on these motherboards? I liked how they were designed to prevent heat from escaping in the area.

Oh my, this sounds great. I'm personally hoping to OC to 5Ghz @ 1.38-1.42v

You probably wont get to 5Ghz on that voltage, if you do then you got a golden chip , it is taking most people 1.48-1.5 minimum for stable results.
I mean there is a difference between booting in to windows at 5ghz and actually stressing in prime for some hours. I got mine to 5ghz and only stressed in prime for 1 hour to get into the 5ghz club he he . But eventually i will tackle the 24/7 5ghz when i get my full watercool set up in the fall.

Click my imageshack link he he things got hairy!!!!! I sat there for every minute of that test and was about to poop/pee myself, i only did it becuase i had/have the money to replace the chip if needed. That was on air too he he !

That was with my crappy UD7 that i hated/hate oh so much, hopefully my SAAABARTOOOOFFF will net me better results. So far stability wise it owns the UD7.

Check this guide out too its extremely helpful especially for those higher clocks. More than likely you will get 4.8 easily with 1.4-1.42v BUT THE JUMP TO 5ghz requires on average a bit more than that. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1578110

I will forever, and always, refer to it as that now xD

I plan to actually turn HT off and OC the 2600k to those levels, hopefully it'll work near the 1.4v area. The only reason I'm getting the 2600k really is the ability to OC to 5Ghz easier (with HT off) rather than the with the 2500k.
