I gave the new bios 1801 a try last night and big problems. Saving any BIOS changes were causing immediate restarts, and my stable OC was no longer attainable. Anyone else have issues on 1801? I'm back to 1702 with my OC and no issues.

I actually wish you would give it a try! I'm considering giving it a 2nd go again, but this time by using BIOS flashback instead of EZFlash from BIOS. Curious to hear if others have similar issues as I did.

Thanks for the info. Im watching the new bios that may come out from asus. I had a x99 sabertooth kill a 5820k last week. I was stress testing at 1.312v and 4.5ghz, realbench stress test stopped due to instability, rebooted to enter bios and apply more voltage to see that I had a black bios screen with over temp and over volt errors, pressed F1 to enter bios and saw the cpu at 1.85-1.90v for like 3 seconds before it went down to 1.3v that it was supposed to be at. Checked settings and sure enough it was set to the 1.312v and was on manual not offset (dont like offset). In the same session flashed back to the original bios and when trying to restart, it never even got to POST. I was greeted with the CPU LED stuck on, Dead cpu mad.gif Put the cpu in another x99 sabertooth that was a running system and had the same cpu led error and no post.

Needless to say, I am waiting for a bios to address this as some others had this issue on other asus x99 boards too.

Hey fellow Sabertooth X99 owners! I have been watching this thread ever since I started build my Haswell-E platfrom.

Here is my final system final system spec:

CPU: 5820K OC 4.2GHz @ 1.2V
MoBo: ASUS Sabertooth X99
Cooler: Noctua D15
RAM: ADATA DDR4-2800 32GB(4x8GB)
GPU: Purchased Sapphire R9 Fury X, still waiting for it to show up.
SSD: Crucial MX200 500GB
HDD: WD Black 2TB x 2
Case: Fractal Design R5 with side window. Installed one extra GP14 fan in the front
Optic Drive: ASUS 12X BD Drive
Monitor: Acer K272HUL 27'' 1440p IPS
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 850Watt
Mouse: Logitech Master MX
Keyboard: Corsair K70 Cherry Blue.
NIC: Atheros AR9380(Will get some broadcom based 11ac adapters when I get a new router)


I saw you guys said 1801 BIOS is unstable. Well I definitely disagree. Actually the reason I am posting today is because I just did the flash to 1801 last night. Yes it does reset my overclock settings, however there are none stability problems.

I must say I LOVE this board. Rock solid quality and lots of overclocking features. In fact I don't even understand most of the options. I am slowly learning and hopefully we Sabertooth X99 owners can help each other learn more about this great product.

And some pictures:



CPU, RAM and heatsink:





Installed on the Sabertooth X99







PSU:



Testing the fitment of the D15. I ended up raise the front 14mm fan up 2 fins to clear the heatsink of the ADATA RAM.







SSD in and wiring:



All done!

@xkm1948

Wow nice picture of the D15 fitting! Especially on that ram! By the way did it block the 1st pci-e lane? Thanks for the report on the bios.

Thanks

Nope. It does not block the first PCI-E. I am currently having my old 5870 there and there is ample space between the D15 and the graphic card

Can anyone tell me what are maximum acceptable VCORE temperatures on this motherboard?

Im not sure about the socket temps but believe while overclocking the recommended max temp is 80C. Think the max 24/7 volts recommended are 1.35v as well.
