Talking Sabertooth Rev2or Not?


I have a Sabertooth 990FX coming in in a few days. The question is. Should I return it and get REV2? What do you think? Is it worth it?
REV2.0..................First

Wait what? REV-2? Which one is this one? like you i have that coming, hopefully tomorrow but probably Tuesday, and meh...... whats the difference? i can't see any in your side by side charts, REV-1 is a proven board.

Personally i'm not going to cancel it

I know what you mean. A proven track record does count! There might be an advantage, however...
Whatcha think Frakk? BTW nice system and OC!

I can see:
JMicron SATA controller replaced with ASMedia PCIe controller
(I have heard bad things about ALL controllers)
2 more SATA 6Gb/s connectors
DirectKey Button
DRCT header
TPM connector(s)
AI+ charger
Remote Go
ASUS DRAM SPEED


ROM:
64 Mb flash ROM
SLP 2.1(?)
SM BIOS 2.7

There may more. I am not sure how important these are? Kinda new to the new MB's.I'll leave it to smarter minds....

I have JMicron and AI Charger + on my M5A97, AI Charger is actually part of USB 3, which REV-1 also has. its a fast charging thing for your Phone or handheld device, it does not work on every device and its not something i use.

Never had any problems with JMicron.

Now here is the thing, both of those things are software drivers and the chances are they are also on the REV-1 as an update

SATA ports... how many do you need?

DirectKey Button ?
DRCT header ?
TPM connector(s) ?
Remote Go ?
ASUS DRAM SPEED ?

ROM:
64 Mb flash ROM } updates to the BIOS, was there anything wrong with the old one?
SLP 2.1
SM BIOS 2.7

I'm just as much in the dark as you.
