Intel DX58SO LGA1366/Intel X58/DDR3-1333/CrossFire/A&GbE/ATX Motherboard, Retail
From the Manufacturer
The Desktop Board DX58SO is part of Intel's Extreme motherboard series, and has been specifically designed to harness the power of Intel Core i7-900 series processors. Based on the X58 chipset, the DX58SO supports all processors with LG1366 sockets, and fully supports ATI CrossFire and NVIDIA SLI technology. The DX58SO is an ATX form factor board and measures 12 by 9.6 inches. It is packed with enough PCI connectors, DDR3 memory sockets, and peripheral ports to satisfy the most demanding users.
The DX58SO has the features to satisfy the most demanding users. View detailed schematic.

With the Intel Core i7 processors, Intel engineers introduced a revolutionary new style of micro-architecture. They removed the front side bus -- a longtime staple of processor design -- and replaced it with a new technology known as QuickPath Interconnect (QPI). As a result of these changes, only motherboards with the new LGA1366 socket can support Core i7 processors.
The DX58SO features the LGA1366 socket, and has been specifically designed to make the most of the Intel Core i7 processor's power. It incorporates special over-clocking hardware, which allows users to push their computer's performance to its limit. However, please note that the LGA1366 socket is only compatible with Core i7-900 series processors. Those with Core i7-800 series and Core i5-700 series should instead purchase a motherboard with the LGA1156 port (such as the Intel DP55KG).
Optimize Performance with Intel Desktop Control Center
The Intel Desktop Control Center makes it easy for you to do more with your desktop board than ever before. With just one click of a button, this tool automatically tunes the processor, memory, and bus speed for maximum stability and performance. The Desktop Control Center also lets you monitor your system temperature while giving you control over voltages and fan speeds.
Multi-GPU Support for Ultimate Graphical Performance
PC gaming is more immersive than ever before, but it is also much more hardware-intensive. Behind those beautiful, next-generation visuals are thousands of rapid calculations that the graphics card has to process. The DX58SO fully supports NVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFire technologies, which allow users to utilize two graphics cards and increase the GPU output. This added graphical power eliminates frame-rate hiccups and slowdowns, delivering the smooth and uninterrupted gaming experience users have always wanted.
Loaded with Memory, PCI, and Peripheral Support
With dozens of ports and connectors, the DX58SO gives computer enthusiasts the flexibility they need to build their dream machine. It offers support for 1600 MHz, 1333 MHz, and 1066 MHz variants of DDR3 memory. With four DDR3 SDRAM DIMM sockets, the DX58SO can accommodate up to 16 GB of system memory -- an invaluable resource for heavy multitaskers.
The DX58SO also features enough ports to interface with all of your computer accessories and gadgetry. It has 12 USB 2.0 ports (8 external ports and 2 internal headers), and six serial ATA 3.0 Gbit/s ports including two eSATA ports with RAID support. With two IEEE-1394a ports, the DX58SO is equipped to handle all of your audio/video transfer needs. A Consumer IR receiver and emitter are also included, enabling you to use all of the latest remote PC-interfacing devices.
For more advanced computer expansion, the DX58SO also features four PCI connectors, including one PCI conventional bus add-in card connector, two PCIe 2.0 x16 connectors for graphics cards, and one PCIe 1.0a x16 connector.
Integrated High-Definition Audio and High-Speed Ethernet
Whether playing MP3s or immersing yourself in game sound effects (SFX), you can expect crisp sound from the DX58SO. It features a 10-Channel Dolby 7.1 audio subsystem, which means you won't have to spend extra money on a dedicated sound card for top-quality audio playback. The motherboard also includes five analog audio outputs and two S/PDIF digital audio outputs (coaxial and optical) with Realtek ALC889, so you can use your favorite speakers.
A Gigabit (10/100/1000 Mbps) Ethernet connection is also included for high-speed connections to the Internet.
The Intel Desktop Control Center easily lets you optimize your system for maximum performance.

First off. do not update the bios to the 5417 version, stick with 5200 because the LAN card disables after waking from sleep mode.
here's the link:
<edit> since links are disabled, try googling "SOX5810J.86A" <edit>
Secondly, for most ram, unless you've bought the fully tested stuff, you need to change the voltage to 1.62 and lower the "Multiplier" to 6 or 8, otherwise you'll have trouble posting. (I have the 16gb 1600DDR3 mem kit from KomputerBay and it works with the following settings: 7,7,7,email@example.comV 8 multiplier)
Processor i7 930
the six sata ports are angled sideways and can be difficult to connect to, especially if you've got a small ATX case.
the HD audio connector is all the way in the back of the board next to the PCI windows.
the PCIe ports are a little lower than normal, so expect your card to take up a PCI window 2 spaces lower than the top in your case.
It seems I am out my money and Amazon gets a black eye for endorsing people that would ship a delicate item like this without proper protection.
Going forward I will now look at other sources for this kind of purchase knowing that Amazon has this issue with Amazon market vendors.
According to Intel sticking in a fourth stick will cause a degrade in performance so since most ram that's DDR3 come in three packs its not so much a big deal. Also when it first came on and I entered BIOS everything was recognized but I could not get the thing to boot my ROM drive and it would just sit there with a black screen and then it would ask me to select cd drive type 1 or 2. After about three hours or so it all of a sudden worked after I selected 1 it booted finally and everything was installed (operating system). The next problem was it would not restart and as soon as my computer would go off and come on again it would be a black screen going nowhere. Then I remembered update your BIOS dummy and I read all the notes and a lot of issues I had was fixed in the BIOS update including my restart problem. There was an issue also with my type of ROM drive not booting when put first in priority and that is the issue I had with trying to get it to boot to install my operating system. Now everything runs perfect and I could not be happier. The reason I put all this in my review was it did not go as smooth as I thought it would and someone else might have problems. If you do have issues just drop me a comment and maybe I can help you out just from what I had to do.
