Drive CPU and DDR4 performance beyond all expectations!: Patent Pending OC Socket
Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customized UEFI, this exclusive feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.

Unique Cache Bus Voltage Adjustment
Cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 Memory Controllers, System Agent and the shared L3 Cache. It is a critical interconnect for the whole CPU subsystem. Higher Cache Bus frequency directly gives faster total sub-system performance. ASUS OC Socket exclusively provides an adjustable cache bus voltage to reach higher cache bus frequencies.

Make Your Memory Go Faster
This is the first platform to support DDR4 memory and it's able to drive memory frequencies to 3200MHz (and beyond when overclocked)! ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. With innovative equidistant memory channels, it delivers the most balanced control and powerful overclocking compatibility. ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor to ensure the best compatibility.

Dust Defenders: Repel the Dust, Expand the Lifespan
TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn't draw dust into the board, Dust Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.

TUF ESD Guards 2: 2X Stronger ESD protection for extended component lifespan
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards 2 technology is tested to standards that are 2X higher than industry standards and exclusive pin-level on specific rear IO connectors* testing is 30% higher than previous TUF standard, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity — and that means greater component longevity.

• Audio connectors: Capacitor protection on both front and back audio-output circuits
• LAN port: ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.
• USB 3.1/3.0 connectors: On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.

High-Speed Transfer

10Gb/s USB 3.1 Built in to the Board
With the latest USB 3.1 connectivity built in and dual Type-A ports for the very fastest USB data transfers, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — or twice as fast USB 3.0. The next-generation standard is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds.

Asus SABERTOOTH X99, Intel X99, S 2011-3, DDR4, SATA III 6Gb/s, RAID, PCIe 3.0 (x16), Quad SLi/CrossFireX, USB 3.1, ATX is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 Faulty boards in a row First motherboard would not post so was sent back to Scan who had the same issues when testing and sent me a replacement. The replacement arrived and had the exact same problem so I'm having to send it back again, but will be getting a refund so I can buy a different motherboard as I just don't trust this one. Maybe I just had bad luck, but not taking my chances again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A heck of a Motherboard! I was persuaded by a friend not to go down a 'dead end socket' route for my new Oculus ready PC and so I took a look and I saw that he was right! This board has so much potential and it looks amazing....just screams quality! The X99 is the board for those who want to unlock the potential of the new i7 processors and coupled with DDR4's awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance, great price, great look. Title says it all really. Scan was the cheapest as always and their service is second to none I find. Worked straight out of the box with all my components and overclocks my 5820k nicely. Highly recommend this or any other Asus board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless Bought this board on the grounds it was part of the Tuf 24/7 range... Tough is an understatement... Shielding eveywhere, Massive backpanel made of metal which adds tremendous amounts of stiffness to the board, supports large graphics cards with no trouble at all! Extremely high in feature, do wish that a U.2 socket was fitted to the board instead of the frankly Useless Sata Express which has just not come to light. Extremely well laid out and will lead to a very tidy and good looking rig. do wish the colour scheme was a little less bland at times but that is a very very minor thing that i cant knock the quality of the product for something that small. The port shields are extremely useful at keeping dust out the way and the ammount of fan headers and there placement is just flawless. Havnt had a chance to overclock it just yet, however from what i am hearing it should not let me down with my 5820k. Cant recommend this board enough though and if you want reliability as your main feature, look no futher!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great ! This is an excellent motherboard , has all the features you will need , and because of the high quality TUF components , it is an excellent overclocker . I would recommend just loading the drivers for the 2 LAN from the supplied CD , then load the rest from ASUS website as you will get all the latest drivers , up dating the BIOS with ezupdate , was well, easy ! Dust covers and thermal armour give the board a nice clean look . This is the 3rd Sabertooth model MoBo I have had , and as usual I am very happy with it .

Questions & Answers

Will the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 1x120mm & 1x135mm Silent Wings Fans Intel & AMD

Just wondering if the "be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 1x120mm & 1x135mm Silent Wings Fans Intel & AMD" Will fit or if it will hit a snag against the Ram (I am using G.Skill Ram all 8 slots filled 8 x 8GB). My other option was the NH D15. My Brain said's "YES that performance" but my Heart said's "Take a Hike you ugly fan".... No other fitting problems apart from the heatpipes will possibly hit the Ram..
