Summary: Lots of expansion options with 7 PCI-E slots. Nice layout and color scheme. 2x NF200 ensures max bandwidth of the pcie lanes. Comes with a bunch of SATA cables (data and power), 10 sata ports, has 8 pins of power for the cpu, an additional power connector for the pcie slots, a boat load of usb ports, (not 3.0 but most "new" usb 3.0 boards don't have 3.0 usb headers on the mobo anyway.
7 PCI-E expansion slots 4-Way SLI support is the way to GOOOOO !

Summary: If you're looking for a top-performing X58 motherboard to get the most out of your Intel Core i7 processor, this is it. The EVGA X58 Classified Hydro Copper is the flagship motherboard from EVGA's X58 lineup. The EVGA X58 Classified is larger than traditional ATX, requiring more room than a traditional mid-tower computer case. Its Northbridge is a solid copper waterblock, allowing for those with water-cooling systems to cool the Northbridge.
Summary: I haven't had a chance to use the EVGA X58 4 Way SLI CLASSIFIED Mainboard (Motherboard) yet because my case hasn't arrived but I'd like to give a little feedback right now concerning the box contents. All HW seems in order. However, the User's Manual says it's for the EVGA X58 3X SLI CLASSIFIED. I'm sure that at the price EVGA charges they can afford to include a User's Manual that indicates the correct product that was purchased.
if you know what your doing, this board is great!!!

Summary: i have had this MB for about a year. i have had no problems with it what so ever. when it was air cooled, it ran nice and cool even when its overclocked. now its under water, and runs super cool. :) running raid 0 again no problems at all. running 3 msi 5870's lightnings. this thing is a beast! best company and board around.
Summary: UPDATE: I finally gave up and replaced the board with an ASUS Sabertooth X58. Same memory, same PSU, same CPU, same GTX 295's... and guess what?? My system runs perfectly now. I found it nauseating throwing a $400 MB in the trash, and I'm not sure I'll be using any EVGA products in the future. :( I've had nothing but problems with this board. It replaced an ASUS Rampage II Extreme because I intended to go to a 4-way SLI setup.
Don't review unless you have something to say about the board!

Summary: I am trying to find a good motherboard, and every other review I see is about the shipper, or the packaging, or receiving a damaged unit from Amazon. Seriously guys, please only submit reviews about the actual product quality. Giving a product 1 star because your packaging was damaged just makes the product seem worse to future customers and less of them will sell - making the support for your product worse.
Summary: Order this item because I like its layout but it come with all seal broken, torn off plastic bag and extremely bend heatsink. Please don't buy this product from Amazon buy from somewhere else.
RETURNED BOARD being sold as NEW- all seals broken
9 August 2010
Summary: Very same thing happened to me- the 2 "Quality Assurance" stickers/seals on the board were opened, everything was neatly packed inside, and the antistatic bag the board is in had at least 2 (maybe 3?) stickers sealing it because they couldn't get the original sticker off. This is an expensive piece of delicate electronics and you're nuts to accept an open-box item as new and use it in your system- you have no idea what's happened to that board.
Fraudulent service(RMA motherboard conditions on arrival)

Summary: CONS: I selected the option for this product to be sold and shipped from amazon BRAND NEW. The motherboard package came shipped with dents and scratches. Upon inspecting the box, it was revealed that the item had either been used or RMA. The quality assurance seals were broken. The anti-static bag for the motherboard was resealed with an old sticker residue carefully hidden.
Summary: I did a lot of research prior to building my new system and discovered that EVGA has some of the best products. All products come with a LIFETIME warranty (you absolutely cannot beat that these days)! You *DO* need to register your product within 30 days to receive the lifetime warranty but I do not see the big deal about that. The first board I ordered through Amazon came with the northbridge heatsink bent. I returned the board to Amazon and purchased another.
