What are the optimal setting on this board for Digi + VRM?

Re: [Mobo] Asys sabertooth 990fx

Are you really still wasting money on AMD?

No I just wanted a better mother board that I could run SLI on. I am keeping my 1055t it meets my needs just fine. I wanted a saber tooth but did not want to change the CPU and ram. My friends build is going to be a sandy bridge system.

Wow. I don't know what to say. You put money down for a new mobo and stuck with AM3?

If you are going multi-GPU, Radeons scale better.

Here are the reason I upgraded from board 2
More sata devices I am running 3 40Gb SSD's in raid0
TV tuner in middle x4 slot prevented me from getting a add on card because of cross fire setup.
NO SLI support felt handcuffed
not enough PCIE lanes for expansion
the board layout is not that good
compared to saber tooth
No 3 TB HDD support
NO USB 3.0 front pannel
support.

You may feel like a made I a dumb move but I feel like it was justified.

You feel handicapped for not having SLI support?

Have you looked into multiple-GPU setups? Radeons scale better on the high end. What cards are you SLIing?

I am running cross fire now with 2 5770's my next setup will most likely be SLI depending on price of coarse.

I think you should buy an intel setup too cause right now you are being force to use a AMD cpu.

O ya if you do a sensible SLI upgrade (big if) your CPU will limit it... I don't want to hear bulldozer... mention it when we see *anything* on it for all we know it will never come out and if it does intel will blow it away.

As for the OP so I aint trolling like other people here

Their are no *optimal settings* if the thing is working they are optimal... if you have massive voltage drop hindering your OC... change the LLC... etc etc if it works you are at optimal...

I saw this coming over a year ago. Your upgrade threads are always a deja vu.

I got both boards half priced. I spend more money on Braums Hamburgers than I do on mother boards.

Whats eve more lol worthy is that he obsesses over mobos and multi GPU at the mid range when it's clear he'd be better served just going with 1 single top end card.

Every few weeks it's another upgrade thread though...

You post more posts about what you should get than Braums hamburgers, whatever that is.
