5 out of 5 eggsIt's an ASUS

Pros: This is the mATX version of the sabertooth. It's an ASUS mobo that's built Ford/ASUS Tuf. What else did you expect?

Cons: Like the other review said some of the software included is not really necessary. If your planning to OC make sure you know what to do as this thing has no real automation for it.

These aren't really cons but, depending on what bios version u got with ur mobo ur 1st priority might be to update the bios. This only applies if ur installing a new gen cpu. Last thing is the Sata Ports are reversed(check the manual)

Other Thoughts: I bought this along w/the armor kit and an i7 4790k. All i gotta say is that everything works beautifully. If your looking for a balanced mATX board that won't go down w/o a fight... look no futher.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board

Pros: Great middle ground between the Maximus VII Gene and the Z97M-PLUS. It is a Sabertooth board so you get the 5 year warranty and the neat little certificate of reliability.

ooked up everything (i7-4770k, 16gb HyperX 1866mhz, 660ti) and it worked perfectly. Memory defaulted to its top speed (1866mhz) which was a pleasant surprise since most other boards I have used start at 1600mhz and you have to manually turn it up to its advertised speed. No problems from this board over a week later.

Cons: Ai Suite 3 is utterly useless. This is not the same Ai Suite 3 that the other boards get. This is the Sabertooth special version which only comes with Thermal Radar 2. There is no Dual Intelligent Processor 5 or Autotuning, no Fan expert, no Turbov Evo, no Turbo LAN. Thermal Radar 2 is nothing more than a glorified fan controlling and temp monitoring software. And it doesn't even do that well. There is no way to set the refresh rate of the sensor polling so it so slow and updates about once ever 2 seconds which makes it useless to me. The thermal efficiency tuner is cool but only for the first few times you use it but overall it serves no point. HWMonitor, CPU-Z and SpeedFan can do the same job as Thermal Radar 2 only much better.

Another thing that irritates me about Thermal Radar 2 is that it is advertised as a Radar so you would expect a diagram or a map of the board showing all the temps and their respective sensor locations. Thermal Radar 2 only gives you a long list of the temp sensors.

Ai Suite 3 for this board is overall useless and I am suggesting that you dont even install it. Other programs do a much better job at giving sensor data or controlling fans. The excellent bios on this board is also an option.

Other Thoughts: Mine shipped with Bios version 801 which is the very first one so you will have to update if you want the 4790k to work.

This board may be small but it can hang with the premium juggernauts out there. Great bios, quality, and easy of use easily make up for Ai Suite 3's short falls. Highly recommend.
