Depends on what you call inexpensive. X58 boards are hard to find so they're selling for somewhat of a premium. I might be converting to Z170 in the next month or two and would sell my Sabertooth to help cover the cost.

Oh its going under water if I am going to use it thumb.gif

Not too bad of a price. Shipping might be a bit too much though. Asus Rampage II Gene +l Xeon W3565 + Corsair 1600 CL8 6GB

Motherboards used to be uglier than sin. I like that manufacturers finally started giving all motherboards better color schemes.

They weren't the best, but at the time they were awesome.

I miss those green, red or blue motherboards with mustard yellow slots, white slots and ketchup red slots [some had pink slots]. They were so colorful and just so retro now.

Got the father's P6T SE to replace my EVGA SLI3 which is in repair, and though in the benches it's ever so slightly beyond the EVGA, overall it's a really nice board. The only problem I've come across has been the High TDP Turbo limit, which caps the overclock at 4GHz when using a BCLK less or equal to 200. E.g. I wanted to go for my beloved 186*22 and nope, it wouldn't stay at 22, dropping to 20. Cross-flashing to P6T WS Pro solved that issue but introduced more substantial ones, so I rolled back and stayed at 4 GHz with HT off, LLC off, and vCore on auto.

Other than that, here's some nice results I've got with a set of three Crucial Ballistix 4GB sticks on this board.

[1] Daily driver, 1600 7-7-8-18 CR1, 1.54V in BIOS. Must be stable cause BF4 hasn't crashed a single time, while with the less stable memory setups it would crash very soon after entering an MP match.



[2] I was pursuing 30 GB/s read and achieved it on this board. 2000 8-8-9-24 CR1, 1.62V or 1.64V set in BIOS. 3600 uncore, 4400 core, both were required to achieve the >= 30 GB/s read rate. Pretty sure it was stable, though I can't properly Prime this since the cooling is not adequate enough to handle 4400 core, even with HT off. AIDA64 Extreme cachemem benchmark ran just fine though.

Nice, Crazy! Have any pics of the board?

TY OCmember! Pics, well, not really, didn't think of it, it's a rather messy build ^^ But I'll shoot some with a PDA. It's just a P6T SE, so I didn't think about taking pics of it, you know. That said, I love how it looks, retro style with the orange DIMM slots that blend really nicely with the Crucials' shade of orange, or "yolk yellow", as we call that color in Russia, then white IDE connectors and the anodized blue heatsink on the northbridge.

Also, while we are at it: any1 ever encountered an issue with the BGA of the X58 coming loose because of overheating for a prolonged period of time, in turn triggered by improper cooling? We've been debugging the FF boot code issue on the EVGA X58 SLI3 and come to the conclusion that a partial BGA de-solder may have taken place under the X58 silicon.

Other than that, I'm eying a Rampage IV Gene that changes it's price every few days on a local website. Tempted to build a crazy mATX rig but then the 3930K is the same as an X5650 save the higher overclocking potential, and it looks like a waste of money to me, in part at least.

Seems like board prices are falling. I just picked up two EVGA Classified boards. One is a x58 Classified3 and a x79 Classified, each for under 125usd.
Not great prices but both boards are like new condition.
The x79 classified if huge a XL-EATX. Bought an EATX case and it did not fit. So I used it to build an EVGA x58 FTW3 box. I was going to sell the FTW3. It is mint with low hours.

Where did you get them? X58 boards are going for between 90 and 250,but all I can find on fleabay goes from 250 to 700. I want to buy a few x79 boards yo build a render farm, but right now, they're just not cost effective. For my needs, it's cheaper to risk getting a v3 or v4 ES xeon, and throw it in an x99 board.
