Asus P6X58D-E Motherboard piles on the specs

Normally new PC interfaces make motherboard manufacturers all giddy at the prospect of new sales, after all USB 3.0 and SATA6G are something enthusiasts are clamoring for. They’re more than happy to oblige.

The Asus P6X58D-E Motherboard features Intel’s X58 chipset and the sought after USB 3.0 and SATA6G ports for the best possible performance experience. ITShootOut has the review:

In terms of layout the P6X58D-E is generally superb. The majority of its SATA ports are angled at 90 degrees to aid users of dual video cards while the other two sit along the bottom edge out of the way. The memory ports have been positioned at a height where they won’t interfere with the primary video card while there is plenty of room around the CPU socket for even the largest of 3rd party coolers. Slot wise Asus is clearly looking to the future as legacy PCI slots take a back seat to PCI Express. Three full-length slots are provided for triple Crossfire or SLI configurations while a single 1x slot sits at the top of a board for a sound card.

It’s fast, can handle the quickest drives available, and it’s overclocking friendly…what else do you need to know?
