ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Nice board, Bios update required. 12/14/2013

This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice board
1. USB Bios Flashback is very nice, paired with a i7-4820K.
2. Easy to setup, Bios is really easy to navigate.
3. Plenty of fan connectors.
4. Asthetics
5. Book was very readable and informative.
6. Its Asus, it just works.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand all the negative reviews about the bios flashback. Its in the freaking book people! Learn to read, you still have to do that some times.

Bios flash back is easy to do if you are using the latest i7-4820k, the book tells you how, as well as the website. very EASY! Download bios and renamer, put them both on a flash drive, run the renamer. Stick the flash drive in the bios flashback connector on back with just the power connected. DO NOT TURN ON. Click the bios flash button next to the bios flashback port and wait until the light stops blinking. Power up, setup bios, WIN!

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C11Q-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It just works. Gskill knows memory.
Installed, set XMP Profile on my Asus P9X79 motherboard in quad channel, it automatically set the timings as per spec. at 2400 MHz, ran Aida64 memtest for 6 Hrs, no issues. All sticks passed.

Cons: None, its Gskill!

Other Thoughts: I have been buying Gskill for over 15 years, all from the Egg, never had any issues. It just works. I should buy stock in the company!

Enermax ETS-T40-TB CPU Cooler With T.B.SILENCE PWM Twister Bearing Fan Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1150 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a very nice cooler.
It is big, make sure it will fit in your case. It replaced a H100i that went out, wasn't going to spend another 100 bucks on water. Just isn't worth it.

This cooler keeps my i5-3570k overclocked at 4.4 Ghz at 27c idle and 48c load using Aida64. I am very happy with the performance, and it looks really nice in the window.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Again, it is big, make sure it will fit if your using a mid tower or smaller.

Well worth every penny
