To Get the Best, Start with Xtreme Design

Superior design from the ground up ASUS True 16+2 Phase Power Design
The P6X58D-E 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-E 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

Latest in storage solution 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-E 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-E motherboard can transfer movies, music, and backup files up to 50% faster.

Quick and Super-Precise Tuning

Micro tuning intervals 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-E.

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.

    I happen to use eSata external drives quite a bit. Amazon's comparison chart indicates that this board has an eSata port in the back. IT DOES NOT. This is not the end of the world but for a board of this caliber, I didn't even think for a minute it wouldn't have eSata. Even the older P6T had it. But thank goodness it still has a PS2 connection for my 12-year-old Dell keyboard from back when I was in college! Just kidding...seriously Asus, in your newest version you got rid of IDE, floppy connections and eSata but you hold on to a PS2 connection?? Who actually makes these decisions? All in all an excellent motherboard. I really can't understand why anyone would need a second LAN port and pay a 70-dollar premium for the "premium" version of this product. So for most builders this is an awesome product for a very reasonable price.

    Asus makes great motherboards and this new P6X58D-E follows suit. It is the little brother of the P6X58D Premium but all you get with the premium is an extra LAN port and Asus Express Gate which is an OS embedded into the BIOS. I think those are the only differences...

    Things I like:
    USB 3.0
    SATA III
    Integrated 7.1 Audio
    Looks great

    Things I don't like:
    I would've liked a few more SATA ports, there are 8 but most cases have rooms for 10 drives.

    Overall this is a great board. It was between this and one from Gigabyte. Both are great

    I really like this motherboard. My first experience with the ASUS bios, took 5 minutes to overclock it to a modest 3.3 GHz with an I7 930 which is stable with the default VCore 1.2v. Construction and layout is outstanding. Look forward to clocking it higher. Included disk had links to online drivers and useful software like latest chipset drivers, Intel Matrix Storage manager. No complaints, this is a great board.

    I looked at different mother boards for over two months and finally concluded that this was the most bang for the buck (full machine configuration below). You can get higher end gaming boards but if what you want is a good solid board that will serve your computing needs well into the future I do not think you can do better. I wanted to build a machine that would serve my needs for several years. This board has the features that will allow it to handle any software task I can envision throwing at it. One of the features that attracted me to this board the most is the availability of USB 3, even though I do not have any USB 3 devices yet it is nice to know that when I do get them I will not have to add a card. I did put in four USB connectors on the front of the machine and my case has two more at the top (see my review of the case separately). Having three PCIe slots is also helps make this board futureproof and allows for easy configuration of CrossFireX video setup. The board runs cool thanks to well designed heat-sinks and thanks to the Cooler Master hyper 212 fan. The board has an onboard power switch and other features you usually only find on higher end boards. The program for configuring the board will give an over clocker all the control they need, but in my case the Motherboard found all the hardware on the first boot up and set all the parameters to what appears to be optimal. I have Windows 7, Adobe Acrobat, and Office on a 60 GB SSD and the machine screams. Even with Norton sifting through everything, boot-up takes less than 30 seconds. The lack of an on board External SATA is not a problem with the CM 690 II case as it has an external SATA on the top that connects to one of the onboard SATA ports.

    Nevertheless, the board has a few minor flaws.

    I have endured the P6X58D Premium and found it not equal or exceed the P6X58D-E. This motherboard does everthing they say it is capiable to do and then some. The 6.0 GB/sec works without any problems, the USB 3.0 is lightning fast and hasn't any issues. I've been running both boards and all in all my choice is the P6X58D-E hamds down. If your looking for a rock solid board with a good company to back it up the ASUS P6X58D-E is the one to purchase.

    I am pleased with the Asus P6X58D-E. I put together my PC about a month ago and the build went smoothly. The motherboard posted the first time and loaded Windows 7 without any problems. The motherboard layout is good featuring SATA connectors on the side of the motherboard. The 24-pin and 8-pin CPU connectors are also well placed, so cable management is pretty simple with this board. The bios has all the options I need. I conservatively overclocked my Core i7 950 and the temperatures for the CPU and motherboard are great.

    The only thing that gave me some problem was the I/O Shield, but that might be more caused by my case (Cooler Master Storm Scout).

    The rest of my PC for reference for those considering this motherboard:

    Core i7 950
    Cooler Master Hyper 212+
    Asus P6X58D-E
    Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 (6GB)
    Corsair TX750
    G Skill Phoenix Pro 120GB SSD
    Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HDD
    HIS Radeon HD 6870
    Samsung SH-S223F DVD Drive
    Cooler Master Storm Scout

    I ordered this board to build my first system. After hours of trying to figure out why the system would not start, I finally called ASUS for help. After a short call, it was determined that the error checks could not get past the CPU (Intel Core i7 930). I went on line to Amazon, and easily submitted my request for a replacement. To my surprise, the new board arrived the next day via Fed Ex and I was able to continue my system. I rated the board 4 stars because the product didn't work out of the box.
