Default ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Review @ OCC

Overclocking with the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 was a lot fun, and a big surprise. I opted in this case for a simple multiplier overclock and edged it up with a few ticks of the FSB for a final overclock of 5187MHz. To my surprise, this is the highest stable frequency I have been able to get out of this particular FX-8350. I am convinced that if I had more time and more cooling than the H-100 on my test rig, I could have gotten even more out of it. As it was I was pushing the cooling for all it was worth. I could tell after dissecting the board and power delivery that I was probably looking at a healthy overclock with the Sabertooth, but beating out the CVF-Z by a good 150MHz was a bit of a shock. Not to take anything from the Sabertooth to be sure, however I think this particular result may be a case of this CPU and chipset getting along in a rare pairing. In other words the Sabertooth is turning out to be a great overclocking board, however your mileage may vary, act now, supplies are limited, so on and so forth.
