Default ASUS Sabertooth P67 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review Comment Thread

With most of the focus of the last month or so on the Z68 launch, P67 chipset may have taken a back seat but the motherboards based around it are still highly appealing. The ASUS Sabertooth in particular is a unique P67 board which sports a great price along with high end features....

Since this is the Sabertooth line, I do wonder why ASUS didn't implement their TUF armor on the 990fx as well since it seems to have been pretty impressive...

nice,love the tactical armor thingie

interesting bit about the 50mm fan..will any slim ones fit? does it need to push a lot of air(for a 50mm) to ensure
actually make a difference?

'Moving up the left side of the Samertooth...' on page 8.

' fit on the P8Z68-V Pro we i' on page 9.

It is actually on more than just the page 9, I found it on 2 pages 9 and page 2 I believe, no biggie getting caught up in 2 reviews I would say.

Still reading and digesting the review Zac but a quick question that is quite basic: Can you relabel the temp sensors in the AI suite?

I am sure I will have one or two more questions later.....

Edit: Was the drooping voltage measured in just CPZ? I notice the reference to no measurement points.

Was the 120mm fan pointed down or on a 45* on the memory? Or was it positioned facing front to back in front of the memory? Just wondering since I have been thinking of pairing this with a V10 that downdrafts across the memory and wondered if this is roughly the same type of configuration.

Not that there is much for high cfm's on 50mm fans but what was the cfm of the fan used? Just more of a random question.

Have they fixed the resume from sleep issue with the beta bios you are using? Again not a biggie since I hardly ever use sleep anymore since I have moved to ssd's.

Very nice HWC review as always.

I figured they put those typos there on purpose, to see if we are actually reading the reviews... where is Waldo type of a thing .

Same page (page 6) as "Samertooth" you also have "TUD armor". Speaking of which, though it makes the mobo look very polished, I would still get rig off it.

edit: The MIL Spec's components have always peeked my attention, though I hope ASUS marketing won't get into the "Aircraft Aluminum heat-sinks" racket, though one never knows.

nice review

i got the board
the armor thingy is just a gimmick but looks nice
putting a fan on pwm is more beneficial than the armor 50mm bracket
i was impressed with pwm power delivery

solid board

There shouldn't be a change on the high end and lower until Haswell is released. However, Sandy Bridge E (Extreme Edition SB series) processors will use the 2011 socket.
