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

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
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.
