I have heard alot of good things about the sabertooth and apparently its a really popular buy.
Just wondering, do you guys think it is worth the extra $?

I just built my new rig last Saturday with the Sabertooth Z87 and I love it so much. And it looks sick too. The software with it has been useful too.

I say no. Think about what you need your motherboard to do. Why waste extra money on Sabertooth? Seems like an e-peen thing to me. Money is better.

Pretty much sums it up from my perspective. If you like the looks, good for you, but it's not magically better than other cheaper choices.

TC, if there's something specific about the board that you absolutely cannot live without, go ahead and get it. If not, you can get a motherboard that's cheaper and offers equal performance.

Literally zero reason to get a Sabertooth unless you are in love with the looks. Even then, it will be in a case so you won't really be looking at it unless you get a clear case or one with a clear panel.


It's a gimmick board. Don't waste your money.

If you are really into overclocking, then yeah. Otherwise no. Generalizing here but the only reason to go above $140 or so is if you're really into overclocking. And if you're not into OCing you can drop from that price.

I've had my Asus Sabertooth motherboard for 3 or 4 years now and never had a problem with it. I'm still running a first gen i7 on lga 1366 and it's still working perfectly.

Cool, my parent's have had their OEM Dell motherboard for 12 or 13 years now and they never had any problems with it. Second gen P4 on Socket 478 and it's still working perfectly.
