ASUS have announced their new iteration of the white, Sabertooth series. Containing a white PCB and named the Sabertooth Mk S, this hot piece of tech is created on the Z97 platform and was previously seen under the codename ‘Sabranco’ at Computex in Taipei, Taiwan this year.
Similar in style to their previous white PCB models, the new version is said to offer a shroud and metal back plate both containing a snow camouflage design. The shroud design contains a small fan to help keep your board cool, alongside this board offering an advanced and extended shroud covering when compared to previous models.
As for features, the Sabertooth Mk S will feature four slots of dual channel DDR3 capable RAM bays, three PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots and 3 PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots to enable different methods of SLI or Crossfire configurations. The board also has your data storage covered with eight SATA 6Gbps ports, four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports and supports display outputs of HDMI and Display Port and LAN capabilities through it’s two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The shroud covering is said by ASUS to be manufacturerd to cover the generally ugly components located within a motherboard, allowing for a sleek and neat design.
This board offers a very love or hate style design we feel, the specifications of the board are rather impressive but it’s a little sad that DDR4 isn’t yet incorporated.
We’d love to see any white case mods that you may have at eTeknix, please feel free to send us PM with some images and we may very well share them on our social media.
