This review is from: ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: well laid out. All memory slots good. Onboard sound works well. With my I7-930 I got it up over 4.0 Ghz on air. At stock, I could see no difference while using applications, so I left it at stock. Good clearance around the processor for a big heatsink. My Zalman cnps10X fits perfectly.
Cons: no cons as I see it.
Other Thoughts: those who have memory problems, if you goose up memory voltage you likely will get all memory recognized. It's a known problem on all brands of X58 boards using memory in all six slots.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I've used a dozen different brands of boards and booted many hundreds of computers over the years. I have had no issues with this board at all. It works great. For those who dislike the horizontal mounting of the SATA connectors, I like them because I have a much cleaner wiring of my computer when they lay flat against the back panel.
Other Thoughts: Every board will have issues with memory; its the nature of the beast. Asus is no worse or better than any other brand. Memory runs so fast now that it is very touchy in any board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I went from a clean install of Window 7 Ultimate on a WDgreen 1TBhd to a clean install on this solid state drive. What a difference it makes! Windows boots more quickly, program installs are faster. Coming out of sleep is fast.
Cons: I have to make sure I don't install too much stuff on this drive; I have to use the WD drive as the main storage drive.
Other Thoughts: As others before me have mentioned, a new system with a solid state drive as a boot drive coupled with a capacious storage drive is the way to go to get the most responsive system you can get out of your hardware.READ FULL REVIEW
