GIGABYTE GA-EX58-EXTREME Ultra Durable 3 Motherboard Review

Futurelooks
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Obviously, the GIGABYTE EX58-Extreme makes for a fantastic gaming rig if given a proper video card (or two, or three). It does its best work when coupled with at least a GTX 260 (216 Core) or GTX 285 which are arguably the two best choices on a budget or not.
  • Pros: Extreme water & optional Heat Pipe cooling, Full triple CrossfireX and SLI support, Good layout, configuration, and design, Plenty of expansion, Aggressive Dual BIOS & Recovery, Excellent overclocking potential, Power, reset, & CMOS clear buttons, Premium performance
  • Cons: Premium price for premium performance, Theme would be great matching DIMM slots

Benchmark Reviews
13 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Whenever a new hardware platform launches, I feel that manufacturers owe it to consumers to educate them on the changes. To this extent, Gigabyte does only offers a few tiny bullet points of information pertaining to QPI, and 3-channel memory.
  • Pros: Outstanding BIOS - designed for overclockers!, Hyrbid Silent-Pipe 2 component improves X58 thermal cooling, Advanced Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced offers VRD 11.1 ultra-low power state, Triple PCI-Express 2.0 compliant graphics slots, BIOS updates are made safe with dual-BIOS, Japanese-manufactur...
  • Cons: Expensive motherboard solution, Complicated BIOS is not for novice overclockers, Kit does not include SLI bridge component, Lacks Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) onboard support, Independent core multipliers are not available, Turbo Boost not available when overclocking

27 November 2008
  • Summary: If we set aside the current economic climate, the great and continued success of Intel’s Core 2 Duo/Quad, and the likelihood that few, if any games and programmes will be fully optimized to use all 8 threads of the Intel Core i7 920, then the Gigabyte GA EX-58 Extreme is an excellent motherboard.
  • Pros: - Excellent performance, - Support for Intel's new Core i7 Processors, - Support new Tri-Channel memory, - New LGA socket 1366, - Excellent overclocking potential, - Feature Rich, - Power saving green credentials, - Tri SLI and CrossFire
  • Cons: - PRICE ... It's extremely expensive, - As with many new products there will be a price premium, - Not your usual upgrade ... ie you'll need a new processor, new ram and new cooling
