4 March 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sapphire Pure Black X58 isn’t a groundbreaking motherboard. It’s quirky and not the best when it comes to overclocking, as it loses out by 25MHz in the QPI frequency overclocking stakes. Even flashing the BIOS is more difficult than on many cheaper X58 motherboards.
