If you want SATA 3 or USB 3.0, there are X58 boards from Gigabyte that support those features using a third-party chip. Are the boards with an "A" in front of X58 (eg. GA-X58A-UD5). The performance is really noticeable. Not as good as native support, though. I'm using one of those boards and I get quite some boost over SATA 2. I never used USB 3.0 so, I can't say anything.

More noticeable than other X58 boards? My EVGA X58 also has the Marvell 88SE9128 and my SSD is basically crippled.

Re: [Official] ASRock Z77 Discussion/Owners Club

I asked the similiar question about the i7-860 which i own with out a decent board. After looking for 1156 board to suit my needs i couldnt justify spending 75-100 dollars on a board for cpu that was only gen newer than my current so instead I bought a Z77 board instead and will probably get a 2500k or 3570k for it.
