I`m not crazy about the idea of pulling air AND DUST into the MB, I may flip that one around.

I tend to agree, I love the look of the armor but with the fans pulling dust and it being deposited all over the board how do you really keep it clean? Sure you can blow it out some but it seems to me like it's going to trap more dust and heat over the long run. Really like the looks !

Gary, are you saying the Asus supplied 35mm fan runs at 7000rpm all the time? Mine idle at 3700rpm, and always have. They will spool up to 7000-ish under full load though.

Kelly
Solar

Gary

Sorry if I missed anyone off, but quite a lot of owners now.

Good luck with your new board Steve, let me know how you get on with it and if it works ok.

Kelly is the longest owner of the Z77 Sabertooth. I think I have only had mine for maybe 4 or 5 months.

I can't hear them at all. I know some people pitched a fit with the first gen Sabertooth's because of the noise. I don't hear them at any RPM........what noise they make is covered up by the 200mm and 120mm fan.

I have had my Sabertooth since May of 2012, and have been running with an OC since then as well.

Sounds great almost 2 years now

I had gotten my AMD Sabertooth round the same time excellent MB with quality parts

One of the reasons I kicked MSI to the curb but my Dad seems to be working with my old MSI just fine of course he isn't doing none of the stuff I am doing

As for the fans my Corsair SP's make more airflow but sounds like a heavy blower

No, when the temps reaches my pre-set threshold it will, but there is a setting to limit the top speed of all the fans in percentages. I saw one of the assist fans at 7587RPM in BIOS once, sounded like a tiny jet engine. The Noctua's full speed it 3500RPM and I can't hear it at all.

Steve, are you replacing the Maximus board?
