ouch - thanks for pointing out the obvious.

I did a search and no info really came up, and I hadn't gone through everything yet, was prepared to dig in later on tonight.

Anyway - I can't find that other thread that talked about that x16 x16 would not run on the -E, so it must have been a different board ( thank goodness! ) it's annoying, 'cuz I can't find that thread at all now, I'm curious to know which board it was referring to.

With the Marvell and NEC controllers enabled in a single card configuration there are still sixteen link-lanes remaining for PCI-Express graphics bandwidth, which is more than enough, but a dual-card set would be reduced to 16+8 since these controllers require the remainder"


http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...&limitstart=16

This board does possess 36 lanes but the SATA6 and USB3 controllers use 6 lanes...

From the Benchmark Reviews article

I was considering picking up this board until I read that. No full 16x16x lanes for Crossfire or SLI (tri-fire or tri-sli fares even worse) unless you disable the SATA6G and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 controllers (essentially the two main reasons to get this board over the prior generation X58 boards).

I have to say, not impressed. Could Asus not have added something similar to an NF200 chipset to provide more lanes for full graphics bandwidth?

For single GPU users, this is moot though.
The post was here all along!

This article refers to the premium, which would naturally apply to the -E correct?

Back to my original question...

Is it true that if we want to go SLI with the P6X58D-E, that we NEED to disable USB 3.0, AND SATA 3 in order for the PCI-E lanes to both run at 16x?

I am getting 1 GTX 460 now, and one down the road to run in SLI - but if I have to disable those ports to run them, it kinda makes those features "worthless".... I guess the only solution is to disable them --> Game --> re-enable when needed?

Thanks in advance if you can shed some light on this...

My P6X58D-E arrived in the mail from Newegg yesterday, along with an 800GB Western Digital I needed for my current computer that I use everyday right now. I just took the mobo box out of the shipping packaging, and it looks pretty sexy. I'm ordering my i7 930 in a week. With this being my first build, I'm getting really excited about how my machine is going to turn out. It's going to be a beast

Sounds like a plan - PM your address - I'm sure your testing will be beneficial to the community so we can get this figured out.

I had already addressed that concern awhile back, it should have been a response to Robilar's post. However, I can see where the confusion comes into play from this piece of information. "This board does possess 36 lanes but the SATA6 and USB3 controllers use 6 lanes..."

The likelyhood of someone maxing out USB3 + SATA3 on each and every single available port at the exact same time, is never going to happen. You also have to take into consideration, that those devices will never reach their theoretical max throughput either. In any event, no you will not have to disable USB3 or SATA3 in order for you to run both PCI-E lanes at 16x.

I currently have both SATA3/USB3 enabled, running CFX ATI 5770's and both are set to and running at 16x with no performance issues.

NOTE: Be sure to set the 2nd PCI-E lane to run at 16x which can be found in the BIOS.

Thanks for clearing that up - I guess the way that reads makes it seem like the USB3 and SATA3 use up those lanes regardless whether they are populated or not, and thus the confusion. I dont' even have have any USB3 or SATA3 devices anyway - but I just like to be informed on what the deal is.

U have GTX4xx series SLI'd, these cards get incredibly hot no matter what and the 460 is just some underclocked 470 :/ So prepare to sweat your teabag off with these hot summer nights and a gtx4xx SLI to heat it all up some more

I also had these hardlock issues, playing bad company 2 i experienced dozens of hardlocks , I fixed it buying a Sound card (Creative Titanium and bought x-540 5.1 surround with it ) and disabling onboard sound. however other possibilities


theres several possibilities:

*: Driver issues
- sound
- gpu
- bios
- other

*: Sound
- onboard sound failing - can be caused by outdated drivers

*: Overheating
- GPU overheating of the gpu can cause your hardware to fail and hardlock

*: Anti-Cheat guard programs
- Since you were playing maplestory it could be an error caused by the anti-cheat guard program ... w.e its named. Adjusting your settings could solve this.

and Last but not least: Every now and then Windows just says: F*** You and does some crazy things like hardlocks of bluescreens just to piss you off
