Asus SABERTOOTH X79 Review

Tech2
30 June 2012
  • Summary: The SABERTOOTH X79 does not come cheap and at Rs. 22,000, it’s quite expensive. But then again, this is no ordinary motherboard. It’s designed and built especially for enthusiasts who want to push their hardware to the ragged edge. In fact, Intel X79 platform itself is a very expensive proposition as the CPU and motherboard alone will set you back north of Rs. 50,000, so it’s not exactly the most practical solution, even if you are an enthusiast.

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
5 June 2012
  • Excerpt: ASUS continues to optimize their hardware for the overclocking and PC gaming crowds, but they are also catering to a niche audience looking for ultra stable and durable PC components. ASUS's Sabertooth X79 motherboard is their one of their latest products to bear the TUF series label and sport customized hardware and thermal components as well as a desert camo color scheme to complete the military look.

Asus Sabertooth X79 Mainboard Review

X-bit labs
19 April 2012
  • Summary: A mainboard with rich accessories bundle, convenient layout, extensive functionality and 5-year warranty cannot be bad by definition. However, it is only a few small steps away from being named an absolute ideal.

ASUS X79 Sabertooth Motherboard

  • Conclusion: When we received the Sabertooth X79 we were a little perplexed as to where this unit could be placed in the market. The military spec components means that it should last a long time no matter the condition. That it goes through extended testing for reliability and durability by a third party testing team tells us that the claims are more than just that. Also, the fact that we were able to achieve 5GHz overclocks lets us know it is capable.

  • Summary: Coming in at $339 US, the Sabertooth X79 from ASUS is an expensive board that lines up with the P9X79 PRO from ASUS which comes in just $10 US cheaper. The Sabertooth X79 looks the part when it comes to mean looking motherboards and no doubt inside a system the Sabertooth X79 is going to stand out more so than some others.

ASUS Sabertooth X79 TUF motherboard

HEXUS
21 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Tempted by an Intel Sandy Bridge-E chip? If so, you're going to have to pony up another £200, at the very least, for a supporting X79 motherboard. ASUS has seven such boards in its stable, ranging from £220 through to £320. Currently priced at £250 is the Sabertooth X79 TUF. The X79 model carries the same five-year warranty present on other Sabertooth boards and keeps the distinct livery intact. The colour scheme is like Marmite: you'll either love it or loathe it.

Asus Sabertooth X79 Motherboard Review

  • Conclusion: I’m going to be honest, I was never a fan of the Sabertooth styling, as it was meant to mimic a military style camouflage but is slightly off with the colour representation. Through the past week of using this board and seeing it out of the corner of my eye, it has grown on me slightly and isn’t as ugly as I first thought, but it’s still only going to appeal to a select amount of consumers on a style basis.

ASUS TUF Sabertooth X79 review

The Guru of 3D
15 November 2011
  • Summary: As our reference article has already shown, the Sandy Bridge-E platform is a power-house and it is bound to set some new records. The SBE processor combined with the right motherboard has all the ingredients of a truly hardcore PC that allows flexible overclocking and performance levels that are near silly when overclocked. The Sabertooth is an absolutely adorable motherboard that holds ground really well.
