To Get the Best, Start with Xtreme Design
| ASUS True 16+2 Phase Power Design |
The P6X58D Premium is built based on the groundbreaking 16+2 phase VRM design. The 16+2 phase power design, 16-phase for vCore and extra 2-phase for Memory controller inside CPU, can provide the highest power efficiency, and hence generates less heat to effectively enhance the overclocking capability. With the high quality power components such as low RDS (on) MOSFETs, Ferrite core chokes with lower hysteresis loss and 100% Japan-made high quality conductive polymer capacitors, ASUS 16+2 phase VRM design also ensure longer component life and minimum power loss.
Up to 36°F (20°C) Cooler - Stack Cool 3+
Stack Cool 3+ is a fanless cooling solution offered exclusively by ASUS. By embedding 2 ounces of copper in its PCB and also extra layers of PBC, it effectively and noiselessly transfers heat generated by the critical components to the other side of the specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for effective heat dissipation - making temperatures cooler by up to 36°F/20°C.
32nm - 6-core Intel CPU Ready
The P6X58D Premium is also ready for the next generation 32nm, 6-core Intel CPUs. With Xtreme Phases and the Stack Cool 3+ combined, you can expect an even lower system temperature and more performance from the new 6-core processors.
TRUE USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s Performance
| True SATA 6Gb/s Support |
Supporting next-generation Serial ATA (SATA) storage interface, this motherboard delivers up to 6.0Gb/s data transfer rates. Additionally, get enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current bus systems.
True USB 3.0 Support
The first motherboard to be officially certified by the USB-IF to support USB 3.0 technology, the P6X58D Premium gives you the latest in peripheral connectivity standard for an ultra-fast data transfer at 4.8Gbps. Built to connect easily with next generation components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.
With TRUE USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s, your ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard can transfer movies, music, and backup files up to 50% faster.
Quick and Super-Precise Tuning
| Whether you are a first time overclocker or trying to break the next world record, you will appreciate the comprehensive yet simple to use overclocking tools that comes with the P6X58D Premium. |
Fitted with the super-precise TurboV program, you can easily boost your CPU and system performance - in real-time.
This advanced overclocking tool provides micro-adjustment intervals for key components' voltages and frequency, allowing fine-tuning to be twice as precise than other solution. The easy to use interface provides tuning capability for the CPU PPL, NB, NB-PCIe, and DRAM voltages in 0.02v intervals. The extra fine adjustments is able to provide you with optimized performance while achieving rock solid stability.
Once the desired overclocking settings have been achieved, you can save the settings into preset profiles for quick and easy switching between presets for instant overclocking or power saving.
WarrantyThe P6X58D Premium carries a 3 year limited product warranty. ASUS product warranty is based on the serial number printed on the box.
