ASUS' top-tier LGA2011 lineup is completed by the TUF Sabertooth X79. This board, along with the ROG Rampage IV Extreme and P9X79 Deluxe makes up for it. There will be many more affordable LGA2011 boards by ASUS, one such model we're hearing about is the P9X79 Pro. The TUF Sabertooth family is based on the idea of rock-solid stability and component durability, these motherboards are built to last, if not score accolades with overclocking like the ROG boards are designed for.

Why is chipset heat suddenly a concern? Asus is going a little nuts with the fans.

uhmmm not very happy to see those small fans, retain as much and eat dust ... Then as they are always on can break down and start making noise ... Asus so do not go so well...

more fans means more noise and more things to potentially fail....not liking this. Other than the mosfet and chipset fans though the board looks badass!

I'm hearing that those fans will spin at very low speeds, just about enough to give natural convection a gentle push.

Bad idea to put fans on there. Even if they're quiet fans wear out and they collect dust. People will avoid these boards I think, they will go for the deluxe or something that doesnt have fans.

If this board is so tuff and has good components why does it need fans and the deluxe model doesnt? Does it have stronger power than the deluxe?

Fans and plastic shrouds cheaper than heat pipes and bigger heatsinks ?..

But the cheaper boards like the deluxe have heatpipes, the ROG and Sabertooth have fans?:ohwell:

The only excuse is if the ROG/Sabertooth have a beefier power components but they are all labelled digi+vrm so who knows if there is a difference. Does anyone know?

The biggest problem (as with ASUS' AMD sabertooth) is the colour scheme. It is one of the ugliest motherboards I've ever seen. If that board was inside my case I would put newspaper over my sidepanel window.

True that, maybe it's just a design option and not using as many heatpipes and the fans due help a little more than just heatsinks and heatpipes.

The Deluxe looks like it's for a baby and i think it looks terrible however i would still pick the Deluxe over the other 2 any day.

I am just glad i am in no need for a faster system and hopefully late next year cool looks go in hand with cool performance. And this is ASUS so there be like a few versions.

People are capping on the chip-set fans? Jesus christ you guys are picky.

In my opinion, any fan(not super load) is always a positive no matter what your opinion is. Simple physics, air propulsion over heat-pipes and fins always cools better and more stable then passive air. Better cooling = longer life. = better overclocking

Its personally the best motherboard ive seen out of the selection right now.

This motherboard look beautiful, designed with every inch of space in mind.

I almost want to hear why people don't like this motherboard, its shocking.


The color accents comment each-other, Black/Beige/Brown/Some sort of green. Black on blue, is pretty much like child design, BLUE IS BRIGHT in spectrum, black is strait dull and depresses the color's. Having blue slots on a black motherboard makes it look like a dam power ranger, or a douche FBI agent with a blue tie on.

And there's a shit load of blue on black motherboards (one posted above), and the excess of blue makes it look trashy, just trying to flash off.

No I'm pretty sure this motherboard is very ugly. A good example of a good looking motherboard is anything in ASUS' ROG line.

Look dude, Red and black 24/7 is great and all, but that's border line,

your pretty sure??? I would not say that all the time :laugh::laugh::laugh::slap:

I have nothing against the 30-50% Red and black motherboards on the market practically.
I know for a fact, that people get bored with the color scheme.

What's stupid about red and black though, you can NOT orientate a schemed build to blue/green/yellow/purple ect... without having issue's with a goofy color scheme(Again fuckin power ranger's).

With the subtle color's of beige and the darker brown with beige green can match with any computer case theme, Red LED fan's, White LED fan's, Blue LED fan's, Purple LED fan's. I can go on, you can stick Asus sabertooth x79 in any machine, and it will accent the overall build.

I wont even argue, its your guy's opinions. But bright colored chip-set sinks and slot's make all these computer part's look like little kids toys. Fuckin up the style of the industry in my opinion.

Before you really could not be a snobby bastard with PCB color's ect ect... Now its snob heaven with some generic ass taste in color's. People dress the same as there computers now!!!!! :laugh::laugh::shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu: :nutkick:

My opinion is, some motherboards with some color's are great for SOME scheme's.
Motherboards like the Asus Sabertooth x79 are good with all scheme's.

I would not want to stare at red and black all day, then be forced to realize I cant even change the scheme without it looking COMPLETELY goofy.

Don't care if it was pink and green paisley with glitter fans....no... that's too much but anyway its all about performance. if those little fans work and last as long as the board(should if this is their top tier stuff) so be it. ready to see how each version performs.


Maybe they're those "antidust" fans that. Do nothing iwith reverse rotation:laugh:
Ok yeah fns bad idea.....but must serve a viabe purpose

Red \ Black \ Yellow \ Gray all go together pretty dam nice but then thats my imo. All though the right things have to be in the right colour and no to much yellow.

Maybe they went with fans on the heatsinks as an added cooling bonus for everyone who will use a self contained water cooling unit... which will probably be a lot of people who buy the boards with the fans...
The people who will use a custom loop will just remove the heatsinks anyway, so no problem there. It's only a major problem if you're using an air cooler and haven't built your rig properly... as in putting into a case to drastically reduce the amount of dust that comes into contact with the expensive and sensitive electronic components you have bought for your rig...
