The new chipset doesn't seem to bring much more to the table over the 890 series. I guess we got to wait to see how the new CPU's perform on it.

I really like how they finally gave you the option to separate your GPU's for better cooling on the sabertooth. I don't see anything too amazing on the board though. I like my old X58 sabertooth but it's nothing special. Very stable though.

im glad they have ditched the thermal armour.
i for one didnt like the look of it, and it was generally worse at cooling without a top-down cooler or fan blowing into it

Any insight on how the new CPUs are going to perform? I like how the upgrade path is always easier on the AMD side.
