Nothing but trouble

tmav, Amazon
31 August 2010
  • Summary: I've used this board for over a year. I've had nothing but trouble with the Intel ICH10R Raid as one hard drive constantly falls out of mirror. Also, tried using it with RME Fireface 800 audio card and the onboard Firewire chipset caused audio to constantly glitch. Installed a PCI Firewire card that fixed the problem.

Pro's and Con's

Michael Garcia, Amazon
22 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this a couple weeks ago, and after I plugged everything in, I turned on the computer and started installing windows, I left to go to Subway and came back to the computer off. I was puzzled and when I turned it on again it started pillowing smoke out of the case... From the video card!! I immediately pulled the power and examined everything.

Nice mobo, good bang for the buck at the time

Julio E. Tonidandel "Julioet", Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: I guess I purchased this mobo from Amazon about 2 months ago, and decided to write this review only now. Reviews are important to me, since they help decide whether to buy or not, besides having some nice hints eventually. Well, I do not actually remember how much I paid for it, but it was a great deal at the time, as it was one of the cheapest X58 mobos advertised here at Amazon.

scheda molto valida per le cpu Intel i7

fantalorenzo, Ciao
10 May 2010
  • Summary: questa scheda, basata su socket 1366, supporta efficacemente le cpu i7. In particolare, io posseggo l'I7 920. Questo chipset (intel X58) non ha più il FSB ma l'Hyper transport Bus, e supporta le DDR3. Non mi dilungo in spiegazioni tecniche, rimandandovi ai link di siti informatici che potrete trovare in internet che sicuramente saranno più validi ed esaurienti; io mi limito a lasciare le mie osservazioni da utente.
  • Pros: ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo
  • Cons: dissipazione passiva buona ma non ai livelli eccelsi
