You sure about that board?

You sure about that board? Asus has a couple of Sabertooth products, but none of them are Sabertooth x11. There's a Sabertooth X79, is that what you meant? But regardless, sounds like the system is shutting down because of overheating, and trying to prevent permanent damage to key components. So are you sure that water cooling unit is pumping the coolant through the system? Maybe you forgot to connect the power to the pump?
