"Ultimate COOL!" Thermal Solution
CeraM!X - Heatsink Coating Tech.
Larger area for heat dissipation with the revolutionary ceramics-coating technology Innovative ceramics effectively conducts heat away from the system. It replaces traditional anti-oxidant to dissipate heat better with its microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area. Better cooling leads to overall improvement in system stability.
Active Quiet & Cool Fan Xpert intelligently allows users to adjust both the CPU and chassis fan speed according to different ambient temperature , which is caused by different climate conditions in different geographic regions and system loading.Built-in variety of useful profiles offer flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment.
"TUF ENGINE!" Power Design
E.S.P. - Efficient Switching Power Design
Optimal power efficiency for key components Exclusively for this motherboard, the switching power design is provided not only for the CPU, but also for other key components such as graphics card, PCI slots, and chipsets. E.S.P. dramatically improves system efficiency and reduces heat generation.

According to our tests, the ASUS Sabertooth X58 is no different from ordinary mainboards ASUS offers except for the characteristic color scheme. Its functionality is the same or even somewhat broader than usual. Its packaging and accessories are the same as those of other ASUS mainboards, too.
An attractive option for seasoned enthusiasts who have been around long enough to appreciate refined simplicity. It is a simple and effective design. You still get extras, but they're sensible ones, like higher-grade electrical components, two more years of warranty coverage, and a couple of fla

Very nice board and great price. I like the black colour theme, it looks very nice inside my case. Installed an i7 960 with this bad boy and paired it with corsair ram. I recommend this board to anyone who doesn't plan on overclocking their i7.
I always hear good things about ASUS. I like the features and the looks of the board. It has everything I want without being as expensive as some of the other motherboards for the 1366 socket Works great with my I7960 CPU and Cosair XMS3 Ram. Really like the layout as well fits my Zalman CNPS9900A CPU cooler easy without being in the way. Which is great due to the fact the cooler is quit large.
I like this board a lot. Asus usually makes a great product, and this was no exception. They built this thing to last, with its military grade components. The board fits well in my custom build, and awesome how there are a few 6bg SATA ports as well.
It looks great, easy to install, well made, there is 5 years warranty, there is one page of overclocking in the bios, it is sli capable and crossfire, it is a quality product, I recommend it
