When I first saw the SABERTOOTH line of motherboard with the Intel P67 chipset I loved the whole look that ASUS was going for with it. We saw when they released the AMD based 990FX and Intel X79 chipsets that they removed the TUF Thermal Armor which was the stand out feature for me.
When we got first sign of the SABERTOOTH Z77, though, it was awesome to see that the TUF Thermal Armor had been re-introduced. Outside of the TUF Thermal Armor we've got a whole lot of other features on the SABERTOOTH line of boards which we'll take a closer look at when we check out the package.
As always, though, there are a number of things we've got to do before we look at the performance side of things. The first thing we're going to do is dive into the package and see what exactly the SABERTOOTH Z77 brings to the table while we also cover some of the major features that are present.
Once we've done that we'll check out the motherboard and see exactly what's going on with the board before we move into the BIOS to see how that looks on the SABERTOOTH Z77. We'll then take the time to quickly cover our testbed today before we have a look at the overclocking side to things to see just what kind of performance we can get before we finally check the actual performance via our benchmark lineup.
