ASUS has produced a quality mainstream X58 board with the P6X58D-E that has a nice mix of features at a reasonable price. The black / blue / white color scheme of the P6X58D-E matches other ASUS boards that we have looked at, which looks good in my...

Now let’s see what good words we can find about the ASUS P6X58D-E. First off, its packaging is robust and informative. The accessories are richer than what you get with many other mainboards, but without any extras. The PCB design is clever and...

Intel's LGA1366 platform is alive and kicking for the foreseeable future. Built through a combination of Core i7 chip and X58 motherboard, ASUS goes for the value end of the market with the P6X58D-E - a slightly cut-down version of the rather tasty...

The and Asus P5X58D-E are very similar to each other in terms of price, features and performance. The D-E has a few things going in its favour though, such as its extra on-board overclocking features, friendly BIOS, extra power phases and slightly...

We have now taken a look at two of ASUS's high end motherboards, both of which ended up performing and overclocking relatively equal to each other. The P6X58D-E happens to be a heck of lot cheaper, so why shell $380 USD for the Rampage 3 Extreme?...

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R and ASUS P6X58D-E review - Conclusion Author: Luka Rakamaric Date: 11 Aug 2010 We must say that the 1366 platform had little to offer to an average buyer, as the 1156 offers just a tad slower performance for a lower price. Multi...

Overall, this motherboard had everything I would look for in most LGA 1366 motherboards; it can handle triple card configurations, has eight SATA slots, all six memory slots unlike some boards with three, clean open CPU socket, solid chipset cooling,...

Though the X58 chipset has really not changed in the nearly two years since its introduction, technology has of course moved on. Besides Intel’s 32nm process, which made the Gulftown six-core i7 980X processor possible, USB 3.0 and SATA...

During my testing of the P6X58D-E motherboard I was not all that disappointed with its performance. I tend to look at three main characteristics when it comes to reviewing motherboards. One of these three characteristics I look at is, how is the...

The ASUS P6X58D-E certainly lives up to its moniker as an enthusiast LGA1366 motherboard, and is actually very similar to the P6X58D Premium that we previously tested. Some minor tweaks notwithstanding, the major differences here are the inclusion of...

The ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard offers everything you would expect from an Intel X58 motherboard, plus a few extras to really add to its appeal. Inclusion of an NEC USB 3.0 controller and a Marvell SATA 6Gbps controller make sure your high speed...

Getting the most out of your Bloomfield i7 used to mean spending some seriously silly money on a quality X58 motherboard. Indeed Asus' Rampage III Extreme (R3E) Republic of Gamer's board is the perfect embodiment of that. An incredibly...

There's no doubting that the ASUS P6X58D-E is a tremendous board. It has features to rival more expensive boards and rather than compromising on performance and overclockability, ASUS has removed others less useful features to reach its current...

Our time with the Asus P6X58D-E is up, so what have we learned? Well, it's certainly reasonably priced as far as 1366 boards go and it performs admirably and is just a couple of small steps away from being what many would class as an...

So has this cut-price model cut the performance too or is it quite the bargain?Unquestionably, as our results indicate, it's a bargain.Starting with the looks, it reminds us a lot of the earlier Rampage models. It's nice to see a motherboard...

We’ve received a very interesting motherboard model from ASUS this time around. This is the very model that we’ve used for testing Intel’s Core i7 980X CPU. With an estimated retail price of around 200€, this motherboard presents...
