1 out of 5 eggsASUS SabreTooth X-58

Pros: Excellent board. Was running two BFG GTX 295 in SLI with 12 GB of triple channel memory. After the video cards died installed two Galaxy GTX 470's in SLI. The board has a five year warranty. That was one of the reasons I bought the board. I figured for $200.00 how could I go wrong.

Cons: During the course of 2013 which was only two an a half years of ownership the board the board for some reason shorted out the #1 video card slot and ruined the GTX 470 card. Also a USB module went bad. I called ASUS customer support and explained the problems and told them the board was still under warranty. They said to send it to them and they would fix it free of charge. BULL! After some weeks went by I received the board and with out any explanation they fixed nothing. Apparently ASUS does not stand behind their warranty's and they obviously could care less about their customers!

Other Thoughts: I have owned many ASUS products over the years and in my opinion the engineering it took to build their products is top notch, But that's where it ends. If anything should go wrong with their products they couldn't care less! Their just out too make money, take the customers money and what ever happens to you with their product even if it's under warranty is your problem, not theirs! I will never and I hope who ever reads this take's this seriously ever buy another ASUS product ever again. There's other competitors out there who make just as good a ASUS, but here's the difference they care about their customers and they stand behind their products.

4 out of 5 eggsStill running

Pros: Overclocking is awesome! 5 year warranty

Cons: Only 4 eggs because I don't like how close the PCI-e slots are. If you run sli on this bored the top card runs about 20c higher than the bottom card. I have 8 fans in my full tower and it still runs this hot in sli.

Other Thoughts: still running strong to this day. will soon upgrade to a 4th gen i7. There are a few games that are starting to bog down my 1st gen i7 OCed to 4ghz. The colors are cool but no other pc parts match it. Love the warranty but who really buys a board like this and doesn't upgrade every 2-4 years?

3 out of 5 eggsGreat board! (until you install ssd drives)

Pros: Board has been flawless for a year. Set up and ran raid with ease. Have had no issues with the setup I had.

Cons: Installed 2 different sets of SSD drives, with raid, without raid. Tried both Intel and Marvell controllers.6GB and 3GB ports. I am lucky to pull off half the advertised speeds of either SSD brand I've used. This board is basically worthless when it comes to solid state drives.

5 out of 5 eggsIt is what it is.

Pros: Does it's job, period.

Cons: No legacy connectors, Windows 8 support not really there (but you don't hear me actually complaining about that one to be honest).

Other Thoughts: I bought this to keep my cost down on my last personal build. I haven't had any problems. Windows 8 support not there. It installs drivers, and it seems to run fine on 8, but I had some issues with a couple of games that I didn't have in 7 with the mfg drivers. I probably could have resolved it with 3rd party alts but I prefer 7 over 8 personally. That's my 2 cents.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, spacious, upgradeable board

Pros: Smorgasbord of internal connectors -- PCI of all verieties, several 3-pin fan connectors, SATA II and III, several USB 2.0 plugs, among others
Resilient -- Has survived a couple of moves with no problems
Spacious -- Fits a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ without impeding access to any of the RAM modules, even when fully populated!
Decently upgradeable -- Aside from the cons mentioned below, I've grown my build from a bare build to one with 2 GPUs, a couple of addon cards, SSDs, aftermarket CPU cooler, and plenty of case fans rather easily

Cons: No internal USB 3.0 slots
No PCI-e 3.0 slots
A little tight for 2 GPUs
Binds you to X58 platform (now basically dead)

Other Thoughts: I'm not letting the cons ding the board; newer standards are purely a matter of its age, but I figure someone looking to upgrade their case or graphics card may like to know.; and most boards don't offer much airflow to multi-GPU configurations, so it's not a problem with this board alone.
The X58 platform is fantastic, but it does mean that you'll need a new board when you want a new processor, which is a bit of a bummer but seems to be the trend for high-end Intel processors anyway.

1 out of 5 eggsDead board

Pros: Worked fine for a year.

Cons: MB died after a year. Power will turn on for a second then turn off. First thought was maybe its the power supply, so I bought a new one. Same issue. I then bought a used Mother Board. The system powers on now.

Other Thoughts: Troubleshooting; Made sure everything was connected, then I reconnected. Then bought a new power supply, then a used MB which fixed the issue.
How can I get my money back?

5 out of 5 eggsNo issues just amazing gaming

Pros: This was such an easy install and set up. Built it and turned it on and never had any issue what so ever.

Cons: with the gen 6 cards out would be nice to have 3.0 and the option of going all out on memory speed. 1866 is still fast.

Other Thoughts: This board has OC capabilities that i haven't even tried yet. I can't stress how much i love it but i guess it comes down to how they are handled once they leave the warehouse cuz i'm seeing a lot of dead boards here. I would even by a used board cuz if it's working you should never have any problem. Just keep the bios current

1 out of 5 eggsSame old thing

Pros: I've ran out.

Cons: I'm at a loss for words. I wrote the review on 12/21 and finally had to contact the BBB to get my issue resolved. I sent back the 3rd defective board and did another RMA. My 4th board booted up fine but had the same cold boot SLI issue as my first board. The 4th board also had a cracking sound through the audio when it booted but I was actually happy with simply having to reboot after every fresh boot and ignoring the pooping sound when booting. Far from perfect but it was better than the last 6 months of RMA's.

Well, the audio just completely went out on me. Sent an email requesting a call from the last support person I talked to and they told me to call in.

Sure, after 6 months of trying to get it fixed and having to contact the BBB to get any type of resolution, now I have to call the regular support number and be on hold for an hour just to start the nightmare over again.

Other Thoughts: If you every buy another Asus motherboard you are one brave soul and probably a little foolish.

1 out of 5 eggsSabertooth Junk

Cons: Contacted Asus sent out a refurb. board which took over a week to get. Refurb. board was DOA. contacted Asus again and now the games begin everyone at Asus says how sorry they are but nothing is getting done. They cant seem to email the paper work so another replacement is not on the way.
