[Official] --The Asus P6X58D Premium & E Thread-- - Page 314

post #3131 of 6378
Anyone actually fit the h70 push/pull in rear fan slot all internally on their asus p6x58d-e or premium yet? I just need confirmation. Need to know for sure.
Anyone know if the vreg heatsink on the asus p6x58d premium/d-e is shorter than the one on the evga x58 ftw3 motherboard? Pics I saw seem like asus vreg heatsink is shorter, but I'm not sure with the angles I saw in the pics.

I'm not complaining but I'm worried that my sensor might be messed up or something you know? Here is a pic of my OC after running a Intel Burn Test 5 times on very high stress level ( I later ran an over night stress test and then an all day one) and I have as many monitoring probrams as I could think of to use so let me know if you see anything out of the ordinary please since I'm a rookie to Overclocking. I do know this though. I got a decent CPU (I mean a good core i7-930) because I have a stable OC with low voltages which in turn helps make my cooler's job easier at making low temps. Even when my fans on my Cooler Master V10 Hybrid came undone (I took the V10 out when I was redoing my cable management and the cables on the V10 that connect to 2 fans together came undone and I didn't notice anything was wrong for about a day lol, gotta love TEC hybrids for that reason alone if not many more) my temps never hit 80c so I am happy for that. So here's the pic and lemme know what you think guys.

Your Realtemp is showing 38C idle and 71C load on your hottest core. That's going to be more more realistic than 30C. My hottest core is about 40C idle rising to 75C load (ambient temp at 22C) with 20x IBT vhigh. I've seen it as low as 37C idle when ambient temp was 18C.

In Everest I get a temp reading for CPU of about 30C where as CPU#1/Core#1, CPU#2/Core#2 gives me 40C/38C etc. I guess PCProbeII is getting it's figure from the same sensor that Everest uses for CPU.

Yes, it will fit perfectly fine that way. Albeit, I'm running the H50 not the H70, however, the H70 pump is much more slimmer and it won't be a problem. You can reference one of my earlier sigrig photos in post #2 of this thread if you'd like.

Thats the temp at the current time. The stress testing was over so PC probe II was just showing what its current temp of when I took the screen shot which was Idle. What real temp and core temp show are pretty accurate. lol it is misleading

Thanks a lot xmisery. Can't find pic, do you have a link?

Is the asus rampage 2 extreme better than the asus p6x58d-e / premium? If so, how much better is it? I mean for overclocking, staying cool, stability, quality and overall preformance.

I heard that that mobo had either south or northbridge temp problems with extremely high temps on merely stock temps let alone stand OC profiles of i.e XMP profile or simple adjustments to your RAM to stabalize your CPU OC etc etc. but these heat issues could be solved with additional cooling as for all the other features.. meh idk as for the rumours above not sure if they are true but im almost certain I read something bout it

Edit: this might also have been resolved by now (if true that is xD)

In many ways the P6X58D Premium and -E are better. If your looking to get the Rampage Extreme II then pitch in the extra $20 and get the Rampage Extreme III. It's worth it. I am in fact going to change to it soon. It just has more options and features for overclocking which is why you pay the premium price. If your looking for ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard then you can't go wrong with the Rampage Extreme III. Go to the Asus website and do a comparison of the 2. They have a way to compare the features and stuff side by side.

I don't want to get an eatx board because I'm not willing to give up my CM sniper choice lol. I would get the haf x, but then I might aswell then get the evga x58 classified 4xsli for $280 after rebate and lifetime warranty.. However, the haf x's cpu cooler cut doesn't fit the calssified boards O.o. The haf x is the only full tower case I like but it doesn't 100% fit the almost the most popular board that people use in that case..

Is the rampage 3 extreme better than the evga classified boards? I know this is that asus thread, but if anyone knows that would be cool. If not, no worries.

Well when you get into the higher end boards like those 2 you can't really get a definite answer as which is better because at that point it's all about preference and which one has the features that you are looking for. Personally I prefer Asus boards as they have never failed me (Knock on wood) but I wouldn't turn away a chance to try out a EVGA board if I had the opportunity. They are both great boards with more features than most people need so it comes down to which of those features do you need and which one would make a better fit into your system. Both have there pro's and con's but that's with every board you come across so just weight the good with the bad and find the one that is the best fit for you. You can't go wrong with either of those boards so whichever one you choose you will have a good board.

Thanks man.
Should I go with the asus p6x58d-e or premium? I read about the minor difference in the first post in the thread but idk if anything has changed.

My main concerns are:
1.Quality and longevity of the board - Would like to keep the board for 4-5 years
2.Performance - overclocking while staying cool and stable
3.Easey use - need whichever one has the most easy install easy wires install and easy to use overall software and features. Basically whichever on makes life easier for you overall, both for the physical install and daily use and overclocking.
