ok im confused now, when i try to increment the DRAM Voltage from the value 1.494v on boot up it will say overclock failed.
Do you have the latest bios installed for the motherboard? The reason I ask is because the board and the ram seem to be healthy in that they work well with the 1055T you have. Maybe the problem is the board is not doing a good job of communicating with some features of the FX CPU (which is the function of the bios) and maybe there is a new bios version that fixes this. By the way, this is a commonly recognized problem with with Asus' recent revision 2 series of some of their popular mid range and upper mid range boards as has already been mentioned.
The Sabertooth will have as many tweaking options in bios as your current board and probably more but that's not to say you will necessarily need to interact with them much. You should be able to just drop the FX in and be up and running unless you try to overclock it. If I were you I would also consider upgrading your memory as well. The FX CPU will handle 1800-2100 mhz ram. Right now you are throttling the CPU with that slow 1333 mhz ram.
I'm guessing you won't have to tweak the voltages. Haven't heard of that being a problem with the Sabertooth boards running the Vishera CPUs.
im just a typical/simple user that wants to not tweak so much about the board cause to be honest I really dont have enough knowledge to do so.
So what do you think?
Which is more less hassle board?
SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0
M5A99FX PRO R2.0
your answer = ?
The answer? You are putting FX-8350 in the mobo right? Hale it's default speed is 4.0Ghz and that is what you are trying to reach anyway. So turn all the throttling and green stuff off and set Windows Power Management to Performance mode and the 4.0Ghz is what the dang cpu will run anyway.
It really is not that difficult. You just need to do a little homework about what it is that you own yourself.
