Product Description


This board has been forged for ultimate reliability and force with its TUF series branding. A unique design and high quality components has ensured that the TUF series was born for pursuing unbeatable stability, all round compatibility and extreme durability.

Sabertooth X58 supports the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processors in an LGA1366 package with integrated memory controllers to support 3-channel (6 DIMMs) DDR3 memory. The Intel® X58 Express Chipset is one of the most powerful chipset designed to support the Intel® Core™ i7 Processors Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) supports with a system bus of up to 6.4 GT/s and a max bandwidth of up to 25.6 GB/s, providing improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. The Intel® Core™ i7 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world. It also supports up to 36 PCI Express 2.0 lanes providing better graphics performance.

The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1866/1800/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The triple-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the bandwidth of system memory to boost system performance.

SABERTOOTH X58 brings users the multi-GPU choice of either SLI™ or CrossFireX. The motherboard features the most powerful Intel X58 platform to optimize PCIe allocation in multiple GPU configurations. Expect a brand new gaming style, never experienced before!

Innovative ceramics effectively conducts heat away from the system. It replaces traditional anti-oxidant to effectively dissipate heat with a microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area. Better cooling leads to an overall improvement in system stability. Fan Xpert intelligently allows users to adjust both the CPU and chassis fan speed according to different ambient temperature, caused by different climate conditions in different geographic regions and system loading. Built-in variety of useful profiles offers flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment. 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.

Users can generate a brutal performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust chokes, capacitors, and MOSFETs - certified through third-party, military-grade testing. TUF Chokes, also known as, "Alloy Choke", is made of a compound of various types of metal instead of standard iron. This enables the support of up to a massive 40A rated current, 25% higher than a conventional component. Furthermore, the single piece packaging also eliminates the emission of vibration noise, delivering superb characteristics as well as durability under extreme conditions. MemOK! ensures memory boot compatibility. This remarkable memory rescue tool requires a mere push of a button to patch memory issues. MemOK! determines failsafe settings and dramatically improves system boot success. Getting your system up and running in no time!

Experience ultra-fast data transfers at 4.8Gbps with USB 3.0. This has been built to provide simple and easy connections with next generation components and peripherals. USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components. Supporting next generation Serial ATA (SATA) storage interface, this motherboard delivers up to 6.0 Gb/s data transfer rates. Additionally, get enhanced scalability and faster data retrieval and double the bandwidth of current bus systems.
