    i'm with 13xx, no problems for the moment.

    only two notes,

    first, under linx my vcore is more high that under prime95, i don't know why -.-
    seconds, infrequently ( 1-2 time a week) i get fake boot, but i think that my bbse isn't the best for this platform

    The 1606 bios has re-introduced the fake boot for me. Although I need to go back into the bios to disable C3 and C6 as I think they may have been the cause last time as they are on Auto at the moment. Stability on O/C seems about the same but I wasnt pushing it before and havent got round to pushing my 2600k above 4500 yet.

    1606 is the best for me, fixed some issues I had with my having over 4 SATA hard drives on the Intel array, slightly better memory stability for me, other than that, same OC stability. No fake boot issue for me, you might try reset cmos, load optimised defaults, then flash again, reset cmos again, load optimised defualts and then put your custom settings in BIOS, that normally fixes those issues for me.

    for this moment i'm with stock bios (13xx i don't remember the exact numbers)
    anyway my little issue for now i very rare fake boot, memory related, but like 1-2 a week or less

    new bios = new stress test (i do it always after update) and i have no time for it now

    I understand pal, finding time to do these things with everything else in life can be hard at times, the only reason I have some time is my gf is about 2000 miles away atm :P

    But I wholeheartedly recommend the 1606 BIOS, oh and this board seems to want at least 0.025v more on the memory than any other board I have used, a bit annoying as I cannot use the OC tuner utility cause it immediately uses the XMP voltage setting of 1.35v which will not boot, it needs 1.425v min to run at XMP settings on my memory, needed 1.4v on my R2E and R3E, actually all my ASUS boards needed at least 1.4v memory, just this one needs even more.

    eheh thanks bro
    i will update my board in next days

    however i haven't ram @1.35v, but gskill ripjaws bbse
    for this moment, i don't see important difference between p55a ud6 and sabertooth, with 1.57v i can run 1866 8 8 8 24 1t, on old board i used 7 8 7 @ 1.62v
    it's not bad

    Definitely not bad, I do find though that I get better memory benchmark figures on my P67 than I did on my triple channel X58, they have definitely improved the memory bus on the P67 so I cannot complain either )))

    Thanks Yes, it is a nice board in the price range. I like the ROG components on non-ROG price.

    For Sandy Bridge there really isnt much reason to get the top end boards because pretty much anything can max out a chip. Best bet is to look for the best build quality for the price and I would say Sabertooth is a contender in that respect. The TUF armor is kinda cool and doesnt make temps worse so if you like the look of it that is all that really matters.

    disabling C3 and C6 stopped the fake boot for me. Since then, 1606 has been fine.

    The release of 1702 just a week after 1606 seems a bit quick. It doesnt say it in the notes but I wonder if 1606 has a problem?

    Release Notes
    [ 1702 ]
    ----------------------
    1. 2.2TB or larger HDD can be supported under RAID mode.
    (Need to install IRST 10.5 version driver first, you can find it under "SATA" catalogue)

    I doubt it. 1606 was a beta BIOS whereas the 1702 will be a final release and should have all the fixes from 1606 as well as the one outlined in your post.

    Asus certainly didn't waste any time releasing 1702. I thought they would have tested 1606 for longer.

    Here is quick link for 1702 http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...-ASUS-1702.zip

    1606 was not beta, they released it as beta then it became a final as there was nothing wrong with it, 1702 is quickly out because it is just really the RST that has been updated to 10.5.0.1034 like the Z68 boards have had.

    EDIT: It says Beta in big red writing on the download page still, guess it still is beta :P

    Thanks

    Do you need closer than this?



    There are a number of spots to measure vCore, the closer to the socket the better reading. Also ground it from the same area, not off the board. The back of the socket is ideal, but it all depends if you plan on soldering on a measure point and which point is easiest to access. This is what I did for P8Z68 Pro review:

    I just replaced my Lynnfield with an i5 2500k and Sabertooth and so far I'm really liking this board. It's nice to have the option to turn off all the crap that I'll never use like the Marvell ports, marvell sata ports have given me crap on my last two motherboards. So far the board seems pretty stable. It also appears to clock really well. I like all of the options in the ufi.

    Sadly my cpu has a higher vid than my last three 45nm cpus.

    Working great fro me so far, got upto 5.0GHz no problem, might be able to do higher, but running it 24/7 at 4.8GHz, well with offset voltage and C1E I guess it is running at 1.6GHz most of the time :P
