ZOTAC X58SLI-A-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Issues, but works great now! 03/27/2009

This review is from: ZOTAC X58SLI-A-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Posted no problem after getting everything installed.

Cons: Windows Vista ran really slow with my initial 6GB setup. After researching online, this is a common problem with these new X58 boards, as they need a bios update to address some memory issues. After complaining to Zotac's support, within three days I was sent a new updated "test" bios, and it works perfectly. Now Vista takes 15 seconds to boot instead of 10 minutes. Everything is completely stable.

This thing lacks overclocking options, but I hope they will add it in soon.

Other Thoughts: So far so good! Just make sure you ask Zotac's support for their "test" updated bios, and they will send it to you.

Flash the new BIOS by just plugging in ONE MEMORY SLOT into Slot 2.

If you are only plugging in three sticks of RAM, the motherboard will only boot if you insert the memory in slot 2, 4, and 6. Slotes 1, 3, and 5 are only for 6 sticks of RAM.

I hope this helps, as this board gave me a ton of issues, but works great now!

LevelOne WUA-0600 N_Max Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 USB 2.0 Up to 270Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very small adapter that offers great performance. Gets a better signal than my 9dbi PCI Wireless N adapter. Provides high speed.

Use Ralink's most up to date drivers by downloading them at Ralink's site.

Cons: Ralink's drivers suck. They are completely unstable, and I've sometimes found myself disconnected with my adapter slowly reconnecting after 5-8 hours of internet use.

Other Thoughts: Ralink's drivers have gotten better, don't get me wrong, but they are still not quite there.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 4GB kit cheap after rebate.

Cons: Memtest found these sticks to be defective. It happens, but now I'll be going through the long process of RMAing back to OCZ.
