eVGA X58 3X SLI @ OC Club

“It seems like eVGA wasn’t too affected by nVidia’s abandonment of chipset design for Intel’s latest processors. Their X58 3X SLI is exactly what we have come to expect from an eVGA product. It works perfectly out of the box, comes with a decent bundle, looks great and, more importantly, it overclocks well. Performance is right on par with what we have seen from other X58 boards as of yet.”

“I must say I am very impressed with this motherboard. It ran very stable at stock speeds and overclocked, even though the overclock was not that high. I like how Sapphire took the time in the designing of the board’s features, although there were a couple of design flaws I noticed during the testing.”

Asus P6T6 WS Revolution

Asus P6T6 WS Revolution @ Hot Hardware

“As most of you know, motherboard manufacturers have the ability to enable various 3-way SLI combinations through the use of NVIDIA’s NF200 PCI Express fanout switch chip. The Asus P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard is one such product and we’ve got a full evaluation of it on tap at HotHardware today.”

“This board in a word excites me to no end. The ability to have four video cards without SATA or capacitors or other components in the way is a huge plus for me. The ability to use either ECC or non-ECC DDR3 memory is a huge plus and puts this board squarely into the server category as the board supports the new Intel Xeon 3500 Series CPUs.”

Asus P6T

Asus P6T @ RBMods

“Today we take a look at a new socket 1366 motherboard from Asus. This new board seems to be the new Core i7 badboy from Asus, it is available in different versions that come in different prices. This seems to aim itself vs overclockers mainly and it also has a quite high pricetag of 270$. Lets see how this board will perform and we will also try to boost our Core i7 a bit to see what features this board can offer.”

MSI X58 Platinum

MSI X58 Platinum @ OC Club

“The i7 runs at 2.66GHz and only needs around 1v to work at this frequency, a pretty impressive feat. Getting it up to 3GHz was simple enough, all it took was to bump the base clock up from 133 to 150MHz. Then things started to get a bit complicated and required some, actually a lot, of trial and error. Since I am using a processor with a locked multiplier I started by decreasing it and finding the highest stable BCLK.”

Asus M3A78-T

Asus M3A78-T @ PCStats

“The ASUS M3A78-T motherboard features AMD’s latest Integrated Graphics Processor, the Radeon HD 3300. The interesting point about this IGP is that it has 128MB of additional DDR3 Sideport memory just for itself. In previous reviews of 790GX motherboards we’ve seen that this is one of the fastest integrated graphics processors on the market, mainly because it’s more like an integrated videocard than standard IGPs which are not equipped with dedicated RAM.”

MSI Eclipse

MSI Eclipse @ Bjorn3D

“The MSI Eclipse is one of the most capable and feature rich motherboards we’ve ever come across. When they designed the Eclipse they might as well have climbed a flagpole and screamed to the world this is our flagship motherboard. The Eclipse is not only well designed and implemented, it’s also one of the few X58 boards out there capable of running three dual slot GPU’s.”

Gigabyte EX58-UD4P

“With this being said, let’s take look at a motherboard from GigaByte, The EX59-UD4P. GigaByte is pulling out all of the stops on this motherboard, from the use of all solid capacitors and ferrite core chokes to a few more added features on this motherboard, that so far, (from what I’ve seen) other motherboard manufacturers have not used.”

Asus P6T

Asus P6T @ X-Bit Labs

“Asus P6T mainboard comes in a box of standard dimensions. It was pretty unusual to see that even a small box like that had a flip-open front panel. There were no windows cut out in this box that have become pretty common lately and that reveal part of the solution or accessories to the potential buyer.”
