      This is my gaming rid I build about a year ago, after replacing a bad motherboard (ASRock 990FX Extreme3, this is a REALLY bad motherboard, overheats, thermal throtling, and even burned out within 6 months.. ) with this sabertooth the whole rig got a second life and performed much better!

          Very good specs. Sabertooth was candidate for motherboard to my PC, but in time when I built my Vishera desktop, was not in stock. So I decided for M5A99FX PRO R2.0. Which thermal compound did you use for cooler?

              Actually just the default stuff they provided with the cooler,  under hours of heavy load the temp does not go over 55C so it does the job surprisingly well. I could squeeze out of a couple of C with some better stuff, maybe for next summer when it gets warmer again, but with winter around the corner who needs cooling
