ASUS Unique Features
The Asus P6X58D-E, as all Asus motherboards, have more features than could possibly be mentioned in a single review. This board contains all current Asus unique features, most of which I have pointed out in other reviews.
True USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s support: Rather than utilize the PCI-E lanes contained in the X58 chipset for data of these new storage formats to the CPU, Asus has installed a separate PCI-E chip. Read about it here.
Asus TurboV: Asus’ software/hardware method of overclocking in the operating system is called TurboV. Read about it here.
Express Gate and Drive Xpert: If you are interested in a super simple RAID setup, or performing some functions with your rig without waiting on your O/S to launch, Read about these here.
Though Asus’ TurboV is an excellent method of overclocking in the Windows environment, I always receive the most OC satisfaction while overclocking in the BIOS. After some experimentation, I ended up going with the usual 3.9Ghz overclock on my i7 920. It will clock higher, but just isn’t stable enough to hold up under my usual range of testing.
