  • Performance wise this board is excellent when you compare it to the older x48 but oter x58 boards from other manufacturers perform better but they also cost a bit more
  • This should be a problem only if you have four RAM modules installed

      This board has quitte a few problems. Firstly, it doesn’t have any PS/2 port so I had to buy new USB keyboard and mouse. It doesn’t have an IDE port either so be prepared to buy a new SATA D/DVD Drive/DVD Writer if you already don’t have one. Also check the memory before buying because me Corsair 2×2GB DDR3 1333MHz memory was incompatible so I had to buy new RAM which

      itself costs a lot of money. So apart from spending heavily on new Core i7 processor and DDR3 memory, be prepared to shell out a bit more…

      The layout of the board is a bit irritating. My Palit Radeon 4870 sonic dual edition ...


      • almost blocked out two SATA ports and made it difficult to access two more. So, only two sata ports remaining for easy access. Also one of the four RAM slots is too close to the processor socket due to which hot air from your processor can heat up your RAM. This should be a problem only if you have four RAM modules installed. That reminds me that it has only 4
        RAM slots as compared to the 6 slots offered by other manufacturers.

        After solving all these problems, everything else was fine. The bios has good overclocking options. A few people can get confused by the term QPI(Quick path Interconnect) which os the speed at which the processor communicates with the rest of the board. That means it is the same thing as FSB in older boards. So you’ll be playing with the QPI for overclocking.
