Summary: I had good luck with Intel boards in the past. I guess that it was luck. This board was nothing but trouble. After several frustrating days of dealing with it (I could never get it to boot) and the Intel "help" chat line, I returned it.
Summary: I have been purchased the first DX58SO MOBO on february 20 with the i7-920, then few weeks I received them at my place (I live in Venezuela). Firts all work nice and well at firts boot. The Windows XP SP2 was installed without problems (in 18min).
Summary: The Intel DX58SO Core i7 Extreme Edition ATX board's design could use some improvement. The S-ata plugs are located behind the hard drives making you use the 90 degree S-ata connector (which are supplied) but very hard to get to.
