Totally ASUS equipped the Sabertooth 990FX 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 with a debug display which would have been useful if you should once have issues with one of the components in your system. It is quite common that the last PCI-Express x16 slot is also the expansion slot the closest to the bottom edge of the board. That has the consequence that the connectors at this place aren't accessible anymore. With the Sabertooth 990FX you find this very scenario.
Totally you'll find six fan headers on the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX 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 with two USB 3.0/2.0 ports, ten USB 2.0 port, two eSATA 3 Gbps ports, one gigabit ethernet port, one firewire port and an analogue audio panel as well as an optical out.
