4 out of 5 eggs Addendum to previous review 01/07/2011

This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Come to find out, board works fine. If you tighten the cpu fan too tight it flexes the board just enough to disrupt the ram slots which causes incorrect readings.

I pulled out the board all set to RMA (which NEWEGG authorized very quicky) and set up the baord on the workbench and it see's all 12 gb just fine when you simply snug the cpu fan down.

So .. if you are having problems with your Sabertooth NOT reading ram correctly just back off the screws mounting your cpu fan and you should be good to go. Mine was...

Thanks again to NEWEGG for authorizing the RMA but I wont be needing it...

NO hats off to ASUS Tech for making the statements that ALL I7's have problems with 1600 DDR3 ram and that Gskill 1600 DDR3 Ram ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231350&cm_re=gskill_1600_12gb-_-20-231-350-_-Product ) works just fine even though its NOT on their QVL (Qualified Vendor List).

But again, Newegg is top notch!

Cons:

No cons...
