So the question is in the title. I currently run an 8350 based system overclocked. below are my specs.



I'd use the same sabertooth mobo but I noticed that northbridge bottleneck that I have on my current setup with an 8350 and I'm wondering if there is a mobo out there that can run a faster northbridge for AMD?

Anyone know?

set your nb clock at least 2600Mhz or more..

it'll give you noticeable performance boost..

So then sticking with this mobo when I build the 9590 system would be a good idea? From what I can see its the best one from the job so far.

well, you've already at 4.5Ghz..
add more voltage and multiplier, and it will run at the same speed with 9590 (4.7Ghz).
at that speed, you'll need best 3rd party cooling system on the market..something like corsair h100i will help you to gain stability..

8350 is identically same with 9590, except better bining..
at the same clock, it has same speed and same processing power..

there's no point to waste $880 for 200Mhz difference.
You can do it by your self..

yes, sabertooth is an excellent motherboard..
but his brother (Asus crosshair V) is even better..

and don't forget to set your nb speed as high as possible..as long as it's below 1.35v (nb voltage). it'll give you very significant performance boost and responsiveness..

Thanks! I did just adjust it to 2600 and its stable. I'm new to overclocking and havent really been sure what all I can do with it without breaking my equipment so I've been extremely cautious.

How much better is the Crosshair V?

Actually sabertooth is designed for durability..and crosshair V designed for overclocking..
but if we talk about pure performance, it's not too big..
You can take 100Mhz - 200Mhz more headroom in best scenario with crosshair V rather than sabertooth..

Crosshair V have more feature than sabertooth..exp
Sabertooth DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066
Crosshair V DDR3 2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066,
Sabertooth 6 x SATA 6Gb/s
crosshair V 7 x SATA 6Gb/s
Better sound card..
better nic
etc..

is it worth..?
if you want to squeze all of your processor clockspeed 100Mhz-200Mhz faster than your current mobo..yes.
but if you just want to overclock it moderately, than it's not..

Seems worth it for the faster rated memory as I'm running at 1866 as it is. The crosshair would allow for the 4700 increase which would also be nice. Any idea if its the same type of UEFI BIOS?

well, crosshair V UEFI Bios has more bios setting for overclocking..

That's pretty impressive considering all the settings on this BIOS. I couldn't really think of anything that they didn't provide. I'll strongly consider the crosshair V for my next project. Thank you for all the help!
