Thanks.
good price, good layout, able to raid sata 6, some might even say this board requires less vcore to hit the same ghz of oc.

Ok so I'm just about to order this board (-e) with a 920 DO and 6GB of Dominator 1600 C7 and a Corsair H50 (Have thought about the Prolimas but want to try the H50)

I plan to run the memory at stock speeds and the processor at 3.0 (160 x 19) or 3.2 (160 x 20) for everyday use.

In a few months I'm going to get a 470, then a new case and SSD at the end of the year, for now I will be using the other components from my SIG

Any thoughts?

Thanks.
When I was picking my board it came down to either the GA-X58A-UD3R or the P6X58D-E. I almost went with the UD3R because of the 4th PCI-E slot the ASUS lacks. My final decision on the ASUS was helped along by the many good reviews of the board here as well as elsewhere. One of the bigger things though is I read too much on the UD3R that had a very similar theme to this. http://www.overclock.net/intel-memor...gb-usable.html Maybe it is just luck of the draw but those common problems didn't seem to be quite as common with these two boards (P6X58D Premium and E)

The sound on this board is excellent. I haven't even thought about installing my sound card. I don't know how that compares to others but hey I like it.

16 phase power. Debatable how big of deal that is but it sure isn't going to hurt.

This board might just run a little cooler than some of the cheaper competition. Though it's my understanding that the premium has better cooling than the E.

Thank this definitely helps. I think it's just running hot. nothing else I can do about it. Will do one last switch to AS5 tonight and see how it goes.

I just want it to idle below 40 and load around 70-74 and I'll be happy. haha, looks like not going to happen.

Idle temps are about 27 rising to 60 max using prime95 small FFT test. No more random restarts It's quite amazing just how much the PSU affects not just stability but temperatures as well, everything was MUCH hotter with the GTX+ and the old PSU.

Luckily a mate of mine with an old Athlon setup has just had his 400W PSU go pop, so hopefully my old 700W job will do him just fine.

Thanks for all the help guy's. I'm happy with 3.6GHz at the moment but might try for 4 when I feel I "need some more". Those H50 coolers are something else though!

Cheers,

Rory
Awesome! Yeah, the PSU really is overlooked at times for being the culprit of instability. Glad that is finally resolved now and you got yourself a solid OC!

Hi gents,

I recently bought Px58D-E. The built-in network card doesn't gets detected (not even listed in device manager). Please suggest what should I do. I am running Win7 64bit.

P.S. It's enabled in BIOS.

Thank you.

What do you mean by built-in network card?
