ASUS P6X58D-E Intel X58 Express Motherboard Review

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.
