Yes it is.Isn't it basically a Pro with a dye job and plastic bits?
That was mine too!my favorite thing about this board is all the temperature monitoring probes it has built in
According to the video from Guru3D of the bios, the motherboard is finally capable of delivering low RPM's like 600RPM. Its my hope that this motherboard will deliver a temp controlled solution for quiet computing where it will increase fan speed upon need.TUF Thermal Radar
Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal
The TUF Thermal Radar monitors temps in critical parts of the motherboard in real time, automatically adjusting fan speeds to make sure the system maintains high stability without overheating. It consists of multiple sensors for various components on the motherboard, giving users the ability to monitor each one individually. The Thermal Radar automatically calculates ideal fan speeds based on different parameters selected by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.
Since you have to ask, my first instinct would be to recommend you to use a computer repair shop for troubleshooting and if the reset switch have gone bad under warranty, RMA it. LOL!And what about CMOS battery? If it goes down, or if I need to take it off, because from some reason CMOS reset swith goes bad.... how do I get to the battery in this?
What is the cover making harder to install that would be easier without the cover? What could I possibly want to install on this MB that would make me go to the step of removing the whole cover to install it?that cover is just going to make installation a pain and i can forsee many removing it, it looks way too tight around the psu power connector.
I was thinking the same thing. It does look tight around the psu power connector and cpu socket areas. I'm sure it is workable but I foresee some pinched fingers and use of profane words by the installer.that cover is just going to make installation a pain and i can forsee many removing it, it looks way too tight around the psu power connector.
Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing:I was thinking the same thing. It does look tight around the psu power connector and cpu socket areas. I'm sure it is workable but I foresee some pinched fingers and use of profane words by the installer.
Another review and a pictorial:Here's another motherboard showcase for our fans, once again featuring J.J., the ASUS Senior Technical Marketing Specialist. We'll be taking a look at 3 motherboards from several ASUS specialty series: TUF, Workstation, and ROG.
The TUF series features military-grade components and certification for maximum durability and reliability.
ASUS TUF Sabertooth P67 @ Neweggt: coming soon
The WS ("Workstation") series is tailored for use in a demanding work environment and includes features such as enhanced networking, but ASUS still maxes the board out with everything a serious gamer would want.
ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution @ Newegg: coming soon
Finally, the ROG (Republic of Gamers) series is the best-of-the-best all-out gaming enthusiast board, packed to the gills with every possible feature currently available.
ASUS ROG Maximus IV Extreme @ Newegg: http://+++++++/eraopa
We're not done yet, remember to subscribe to be the first to see more Sandy Bridge videos this week!
Asus is not making you pay anything. There's a lot of choices for everyone. The Sabertooth is meant for people who want quality components and extended fan control. If you want something cheap and don't need much, they have alternatives:I am very disappointed that Asus is making people pay ~$40 for the cool tuf gear. It has less features than the pro. I am nowhere close to as knowledgeable as most people on this board. But this is my 4th build and I have gained alot of knowledge about price/performance. I will never team-lan (atleast in the next couple of years), 16x/16x is worthless unless you are running three screens (if my under armor stock comes back...sigh), and spend all your money on mountain mod case and PSU. I could have saved alot of money not buying a dfi lanparty UT nf4 SLI-D4... That was my first build. I had no idea how to overclock.
Thats a long, dumb story, but it was actually here to help the people who are on their first build.
Yeah, I definitely like the style and the extra bit of warranty is a plus.I would've loved to have the Sabertooth. To bad it wasn't available at release. I would have bought it vs the Pro. If I ever did a military type theme build, this would be the board I would choose.
