Connectors and I/O

Totally ASUS equipped the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 with eight angled SATA ports which should be enough for any office PC or gaming system. Unfortunately you won't find practical onboard power- and reset-buttons. ASUS also didn't equip the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 with a debug display which would have been useful if you should once have issues with one of the components in your system.

Totally you'll find six fan headers on the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 which is more than enough, to provide a well equipped midrange or even a high-end-system with fresh air. The fanheaders are located around the CPU and their also spread over the whole board which makes them easily accessible from any position in an enclosure.

Looking at the external connectors directly at the back-panel ASUS equipped the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 with four USB 3.0/2.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 port, two eSATA 6 Gbps ports, one gigabit ethernet port, an analogue audio panel as well as an optical out. Furthermore there also is a practical BIOS reset button.
