Intel DX58SO2 Review

maximum pc
6 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Using the words “Intel motherboard” and “enthusiast” in the same sentence is like the old oxymoron “military intelligence.” It just doesn’t ring true. Intel’s reputation might finally be on the mend with its new DX58SO2, or “Smackover 2,” which makes huge leaps over its predecessor, the DX58SO. First up: the SATA ports. The original DX58SO had SATA ports that pointed straight up. That’s an epic fail if you plan to run multiple GPUs.
  • Pros: Tri-SLI at an affordable price and the safe Intel name.
  • Cons: No included documentation; utilities must be downloaded.

Intel DX58SO2 LGA 1366 X58 Motherboard Review

[H] Enthusiast
28 March 2011
  • Summary: In short I was disappointed with the Intel DX58SO2. The RAID controllers are a mess and are so quirky they border on being useless. The DX58SO2 brings nothing to the table that really sets it apart from anything else out there. The UEFI BIOS is pretty much the uninspired BIOS we’ve seen out of Intel for years with nothing being done to take advantage of what UEFI has to offer outside of being able to boot from larger drives.

Intel DX58SO2 LGA 1366 X58 Motherboard Review

28 March 2011
  • Summary: We don’t generally cover Intel branded motherboards because those products do not pop up that often on the enthusiast radar. Intel does have an "extreme" flagship X58 motherboard that may be worth your attention. We fire up Intel's DX58SO2!
