Very nice and steady board...appropriate out of the box. Not significantly of an overclocker, but operating a 990X at 3.73Ghz with 1600 DDR3. Owned the original DX58SO, and this one particular seems a bit additional properly put together and compatible. Purchased it especially to assistance USB3 and SATA3...Loses 1 egg for the lack of excellent SATA 3 Makes use of the Marvell chip for the SATA three. Negative idea, but not restricted to Intel MB. In performing a bit of research, numerous people uncover the 91xx chip flaky to say the least. I am hoping future BIOS and drivers allow me to put the SSD and and my 6Gb hard drives on the SATA Ports, but for now they lag, lockup, and are rather unstable for Window 7. As soon as I moved the drives to the SATA two ports, the entire computer seemed additional steady. Although the Windows Expertise didn't move up or down (which is a surprise), I basically don't like the fact I invested in SATA3 drives to not use them on day a single...And, to be clear...I did my study and knew this may be an situation..so, purchaser beware of ALL SATA three Mb working with the Mavell 91xx chip.

Runs wonderful, Intel has lots of software on their web site that let easy tweaking of settings The BIOS is fairly fundamental (I'm hoping its due to the fact it was just released by Intel much less than 6 months ago and it will increase with the subsequent update), Older games seem to have a challenge with the constructed in chipset, The RAM slots are slightly difficult to access.

Straightforward to use BIOS.Straightforward case connections. Back to BIOS button is a extremely handy feature.Double NICs.3 auxiliary fan energy ports. In SLI setup (with double slot cards) you shed the PCI slot. Poor design and style in that regard.

Lastly, Intel has made a motherboard worthy of the Intel name as compared to their older BOXDX58SO that I passed on fortunately. Pricepoint Vs. Overall performance makes this a suggested acquire........ N/A so far............. I had originally been interested in developing with an Intel mobo as I have attempted all the major vendors up till now and own a MSI P6 Platinum and Foxconn Mars (LGA775) so I wanted to get in the LGA1366 game on the other hand all the mobo's I've observed reviewed right here so far have had low ratings unless you have been willing to drop 跌-400 on a mobo, which I come across ridiculous. I was happy to see Intel create anything of quality finally and hopefully other folks can neglect the lackluster older BOXDX58SO model which had pathetic testimonials and made you wonder if this certainly was Intel.....This model has all the bells and whistles, SATA 6GB, USB 3. and much more for the overclockers....

Made for the tweaker in you. Lots of control for overclockers. Great on-board power buttons and boot into BIOS feature when you get in a jam. BIOS has a nice editor and simple to follow along. Setting up RAIDs in the controllers are also incredibly uncomplicated. Note: the 2x6GB uses the marvell controller and the 6x3GB uses the intel. You can not raid across the two so your drive configuration must take that into account. Intel also has some extremely good desktop tools for monitoring and tweaking the internals. Only supports 3 case fans on the board, additional would have to be tied directly to the energy supply. Not really a con but 4 would be ideal. Marvell 6GB controller is flaky with SSD's but the Intel controller rocks! Do your homework initially and verify if your SSD will have troubles. My Important C300's would timeout on the Marvell controller even so there is a registry tweak to get them to work properly on the Intel controller. It really is a wonderful motherboard and I would buy this a single once again. Be certain to upgrade the BIOS

Great looking board. Bios was uncomplicated to operate with and RAID worked perfectly when it did boot up. I can add far more after I get my RMA'ed board back. Had to RMA. Soon after power on, the board showed bootcode 00 for about two-three seconds. Then the board would switch off and then restart. Again it shows 00, but practically nothing occurs. The board would gets stuck in this state. From time to time Ƒ out of ten attempts) it boots immediately after energy on or pressing the reset. I found multiple posts on the Intel assistance web site with the identical difficulty. It seems to be the consensus in the Intel Support Board neighborhood that this is a board problem. One more challenge I knowledgeable was that a pipe around one corner of the processor socket partially covered one particular of holes applied to attach a CPU Cooler. This prevented me from making use of my current ZALMAN CNPS10X Extreme 120mm CPU Cooler since the screws on Zalman attach bracket are too tall to fit under the corner of the cooling pipe. Bummer.

Back-to-Bios button the back panel is a cool function.Common installation.For me this was a replacement from an EVGA board that just gave me more concerns than I cared for.The BIOS on this board were really effortless to navigate and the descriptions of what selections did were also extremely clear which explains why the board didn't come with a paper manual. Receiving my six sticks of ram back up to their stock 1600 Mhz was also incredibly straightforward.I also liked the CD that came with the board and just automatically installed everything driver related that I required.My program is also noticeably additional quiet due to the fact of the fan manage on this board, my temps are also the exact same so this is an improvement for me. No real cons...-Make certain Back to bios button is not getting touched/pressed-Your usb keyboard may possibly not function with the BIOSLook to Other Thoughts for elaboration One thing to be conscious of: The Back-To-Bios button is cool and all but it is also really sensitive. When it is depressed it is supposed to light up red.Even so, if the button is pressed ever so slightly in such a way that it is not lit, by say the I/O back panel, then you will be stuck booting into the Bios till you either jiggle the button no cost or take out the motherboard and re-seat it adequately. I chose the former option rather than the later due to the fact of my beefy H70 cooler.This isn't seriously a Con at all but instead just some thing to be diligent about to save yourself the 15 minutes scratching your head, particularly if you never ever say a B-t-B button ahead of.Also a more fascinating point I ran into was the reality that the BIOS did not operate at all with my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard. Once more not worth a -egg, just borrow an older USB keyboard from a buddy or whatever and your in buisness. I dont know why this takes place and its the 1st time I've ever encountered this dilemma just be

Overclocking is amazingly simple. Good massive heatsink on the northbridge. The BIOS on this is auto-correcting, so if you do something that destabilized you program, it'll auto-revert to your final successful boot settings. To those who say the BIOS is sub-optimal, I would be inclined to agree if I only accessed it in the conventional way. You seriously want to download and install the Intel Extreme Tuning utility right after you've got your OS set up. This system lets you configure your BIOS settings inside your OS, pressure test parts of your system, and reports a lot of beneficial data about your hardware (temperatures, fan speeds, current clock speeds). The sheer volume of customizable selections makes this, by far, the very best motherboard I've ever purchased. To get access to the BIOS in the typical way, you will need to press a toggle button on the back of your situation in order to access it outside your OS. The integrated raid controller boot time is a tiny sluggish as effectively--taking about three-four seconds of boot time. Also, I suspect the RAID controller has an effective 300MB/s backplane for sustained drive operations, but the burst speed is over 570MB/s.The tradeoff with utilizing the Intel Extreme Tuning over the typical BIOS is boot instances. Typical overclocking and tuning will require you to boot into the complete OS each time you transform a worth. When I compare this to the EVGA board I replaced this with (a tri-SLI gaming motherboard) I am seriously only missing 1 function: voltage handle for my graphics cards. It'd be good to have that, but I already was able to overclock my video cards to 150% the clock speeds with no altering any voltage on it, so no worries.

Intel has truly stepped up with this board. As constantly I am impressed with the features and the layout. I have this built with a 950 intel CPU & 28 Gigs of Rip Jaw Mem.2 ATI 5770's in cross fire mode. 4 WD VelociRaptors in a raid five & two WD VelociRaptors in a raid config. This is a fantastic board!! Windows 7 Ultimate X64 platform. The PCI card slot is placed between the 2 PCIex, if you are operating ATI cards or want to use each of the x16 slots the PCI slot is not useable.There is still a PCI x1 slot that can be utilized with the CrossFire setup. I wish I could have afforded to construct with SSD drives at least on the boot sector. Maybe when the price comes down a small additional on the SSD's.

Great improvements more than original DX58SO, only a ษ price difference. unsure, don't personal this board I do not own this board but I do have the original DX58SO because of the Intel package deal from Winter ཅ. I know there are considerably better choices from GIGABYTE, ASUS, and so forth but if forced to use an Intel board I would considerably rather have this over the initially revision. Original DX58SO has only 4 DDR3 RAM slots (for tri-channel RAM, go figure), has 2 extra power connectors to make wiring tricky, SATA ports aren't angled off the board, and no USB 3.; just to name a few.

I upgraded to this board from an Intel DX48BT2 possessing passed on the original DX58SO board. No concerns during the develop with a profitable POST on the initially try. The BIOS applied a mild OC to my i7-950 for 3.2 GHz right out of the box and the new Extreme Tuning computer software is an improvement over the previous version. The only thing I had to do was go in and set the XMP memory profile, upgrade the BIOS and set up application. It doesn’t get a lot simpler than that. All of the fan headers are four-pin and situated in locations that make sense. The SATA controller functionality is incredibly very good. A chipset cooling pipe around one particular corner of the processor socket partially covers one particular of holes utilized to attach a CPU Cooler. This prevented me from employing my existing Zalman 9700 NT aftermarket CPU air cooler or the newer Zalman 9900 NT due to the fact the screws on Zalman attach bracket are as well tall to fit underneath the corner of the cooling pipe. I solved the issue by upgrading to the Corsair H50 water cooler which has a solid back plate and much better attach hardware. Challenge solved. Intel has a Rapidly Post selection that reduces POST time but they do it in a way that either locks out looking for USB and/or Optical drives and that takes some finding utilized to. The angled SATA headers are a pain because they force you to bend the SATA wire 90 degrees in a tight spot but this poor design is not isolated to Intel boards. The DX58SO2 is a welcome revision to the DX58SO with subsequent generation USB three and SATA 3ǜ GB capabilities, six Ɩ) DDR3 DIMM slots and Bluetooth. You really have to spend consideration during the POST simply because the BIOS screen that shows boot alternatives (F2, F7, etc.) flashes by so fast that it is uncomplicated to miss. Intel should take a cue from EVGA and display the CPU temp on the LED code display on the board right after a prosperous POST. For me, this board was worth waiting for and must please other Intel builders or even somebody who wants to OC their setup but demands more stability and is sitting on the fence.

2 - SATA three- 6GB/s Very picky about memory and the Intel internet site is of no use for memory at the moment offered.I tried to play nice and go with 1.5 volt memory, given that my 1.65 volt memory was stretching the limits of how high the CPU memory controller is supposed to deal with. I required SATA 6 Gb/s for my Intel 510 SSD. I decided to get new memory even though I was at it. The product guide claims this board can handle "DDR3 1600+, DDR3 1333 MHz, DDR3 1066 MHz, and DDR3 800 MHz DIMMs. Speeds over 1600 MHz are supported by means of XMP profiles". Well, sort of. I bought 6gb of Corsair Vengeance 2000Mhz. The board fired correct up. But, the memory ran at 1066 Mhz. No challenge. I loaded Win7 and Office 2010 devoid of problem. Updated the Bios. Then went to work on the memory. Tried the XMP profile. Result in Blue Screen or rebooting. Tried manually setting the memory paramaters. I could only get it to run at 1066 Mhz. Just for kicks, I tried my old Corsair dominator 1600 Mhz memory. Set the XMP at the method ran proper away. No "memory" issues. Some time when I get time I'll mess with the Vengeance once more.The only other issue I have discovered (EVGA board owners are going to adore this) is that the board double pumps on a cold boot.Hope a new Bios will repair!

Good function set and a big improvement more than the DX58SO. The tuning computer software is a good touch and allows the user to configure processor, memory and fan performance settings without going into the BIOS. Wireless, Bluetooth and four-pin fan headers set this board apart from other X58 main boards. Superb SATA and DDR3 efficiency. The Marvell 88SE9xx controller used to implement the 6 GB/s ports on this board is what they call a 'Serial Attached SCSI' device. This implies that when you attached a SATA drive to either of the two Blue SATA 3 ports Windows will see the drive as a SCSI drive at the hardware level. This is not a large deal general but it is worth noting as it will result in incompatibility difficulties with software like the Intel SSD Toolbox whenever an Intel SSD is connected to a single of the SATA three ports. This is an problem for me as I use an Intel 510 SSD for my OS drive and have to move the cable to a SATA 2 port to use the Toolbox software and then back to the SATA 3 port when I'm accomplished optimizing my drive. I had to RMA this board due a bad DIMM slot (channel A, DIMM 1). This is the initially Intel board that I have had to send back out of six Intel builds. It takes place. Native support for SATA three would have been nice as the Marvel controller is lame. For me the pros outweigh the cons and on balance this is a great main board that need to please builders seeking for stability and a fantastic function set.

I purchased this board based on my earlier positive expertise with Intel boards. I'm not an overclocker. I just want a very good solid board. Regrettably... This board occasionally hangs when waking from sleep. My machine wakes up every single night for backups and occasionally when I check on it in the morning I locate the the system hung with a black screen and the fans running at complete blast. According to Event Viewer, the time of the "unexpected shutdown" was near the time the method was scheduled to wake up. I hope that this is a thing that a future BIOS update will fix but so far it's a true bummer.

This board makes up for all the shortfalls in the BOXDX58SO. Angled SATA connections, far better placement and more memory slots, and two onboard NICs to name a few.

Straightforward install in a new rig that Newegg delivered to me yesterday. Connectors are uncomplicated to locate and access in most cases. Post and boot 1st try with no problems. Very first new rig in a few years. Glad it all came together. :) Only complaint would be the SATA connectors. Had to get rid of a piece from my case's drive bays in order to plug any SATA devices in. The SATA connectors need to be angled or facing up away from the board, not pointed directly at the front of the machine.

Incredibly nicely built and fairly. Every thing worked perfectly the very first time I switched it on. It is rock solid stable. The "Intel Extreme Tuning Utility" is actual fun to use; it's extremely well organized - greatest of breed. I'm having a tiny difficulty keeping the NIC driver working. This is one of those sporadics at is annoying, but each and every build I've ever completed has had some kind of driver concern. With Win7 64, I was expecting worse. This is subsequent to trivial. I had tough time tuning and then OC'ing the memory when I got to that stage of the develop Ɩx2GB Corsair XMS DDR3 1600). With the Intel tuning software, I isolated the issue to one sub-par stick in the 6 stick set. Newegg replaced it quickly with no hassle. Bravo - Newegg. BTW, the tension test functions integrated into the Intel software is truly handy.

Runs great when I got it all setup appropriately! The XMP settings in the BIOS are set to high, you have to modify the settings to get XMP Memory to run correctly, which is a discomfort in the buttocks.BIOS wants some work overall.

Most likely not the greatest over-clocker board on the planet but it's great non-the-less.Very impressed with it so far. This is the first Intel board I've had because my IBM Aptiva back in 1998.

Dual Intel LAN, SLI and Crossfire support. Terrible bios each from a usability and stability standpoint. SATA3 uses the awful Marvel controller so very good luck utilizing an SSD on these ports. Back to bios did not work and had to move config jumper when bios froze, and it froze A LOT. Could not do a clean install of Windows. Consistently blue screened with MACHINE_EXCEPTION_ERROR. Put every little thing back on my trusty X58A-UD3R and back in company. This is the SECOND Intel board that has given me grief, and the last one was a server class board. Not cool.
