The power circuits of this motherboard from Intel apparently do not break any records in complexity. Intel may make changes to manufacturing life cycle, specifications, and product descriptions at any time, without notice. This board also refuses to boot when theres a usb thumb drive connected i’ve tried about 5 different brands set up to be bootable or not. This discussion is locked. For the first time on the desktop market there appeared an opportunity to build SLI with the chipset from a different company, even though it involves royalties. Let’s try to get rid of this residue. One of the other reasons that high memory clocks are tough to reach is because the board is still pre-production and the BIOS is still being optimized for stability, as well as, performance.

iXBT Labs – Intel DX58SO “Smackover” Motherboard
Did you find the information on this site useful? You can choose any connection type or use both — only when graphics cards need more power than goes via the bus, of course up to 75 W ; it may come in handy for the third graphics card installed into a PCIEx4 slot. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Performance drops, when four modules are installed? We got this motherboard without a package and bundle, so we cannot provide detailed information.
Intel Authorized Distributors sell Intel processors in clearly marked boxes from Intel. But the other components have been shuffled by Intel engineers. All motherboards from Intel traditionally have enhanced temperature monitoring features. Main page description shows: Please submit your comments, questions, or suggestions here.
Other manufacturers are gradually abandoning smcakover interfaces, but none of them burns their bridges so aggressively.

One of the other reasons that high memory clocks are tough to reach is because the board is still pre-production and the BIOS is still being optimized for stability, as well as, performance. According to the information on the official web site, the box contains the usual bundle paper manuals, CD, etc plus four SATA cables with L-shaped connectors so that they can be used even with bulky graphics cards. This means Kingston triple channel memory kits are in the works and will be released around the same time as this platform.
What concerns automatic fan speed control for two fansyou can only enable or disable it in BIOS Setup. Contact your OEM or reseller for warranty support. This is much lower than other DDR3 chipsets that are currently on the market, so some SPD tweaks and IC changes are needed to reach peak performance levels on this new chipset.

The number of memory channels refers to the bandwidth operation for real world application. Intel engineers do not worry about high operating temperature of the Northbridge its top limit is ?
Note that ECC memory support requires both processor and chipset support. Thus, in our opinion, all these memory problems of the Intel DX58SO are non-issue or simply dilettantish. The secondary PCIE 16x port is only showing up at 2.
Clear queue Compare 0. On the ds58so BIOS Other than the above mentioned global peculiarities, this Dx558so layout has lots of minor ones. This content has been marked as final. System and Maximum TDP is based on worst case scenarios. PCIe Peripheral Component Interconnect Express is a high speed serial computer expansion bus standard for attaching hardware devices to a computer. The dx85so is equipped with a latch in case you want to install a graphics card into this slot with an open end.
Besides, all of them use a better thermal interface than usual. RAID Redundant Array of Independent Disks is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a single logical unit, and distributes data across the array defined by RAID levels, indicative of the level of redundancy and performance required.
