To express Intel’s new 750 series SSD as ‘super fast’ would be an understatement; it’s the closest thing you’ll get to a server-spec product in a consumer product, and the first (consumer) device to bring important NVMe into your gaming or workstation rig.

Tom from OC3D is the very first to review the latest TUF board – the Sabertooth X99. Tom’s conclusion is a thumbs up!, awarding it the OC3D Gold Award and ending with this remark:
“If you want the power of the Rampage 5 without the red, this could be the board you have been looking for. It’s positively spectacular.”
