Let’s try to get rid of this residue. If sold in bulk, price represents individual unit. We got this motherboard without a package and bundle, so we cannot provide detailed information. PCIe Peripheral Component Interconnect Express is a high speed serial computer expansion bus standard for attaching hardware devices to a computer. They typically carry a three-year warranty. The board technical notes seem to suggest its a PCIE 2. We can only regret about the lack of a POST indicator to inform about startup problems.

Write a comment below. If sold in bulk, price represents individual unit. However, in February,this motherboard finally got the SLI license both contracting partners informed general public about itso this problem will go away, when you flash a new BIOS version This feature is implemented owing to support for the digital content protection technology, which lets certified software players channel the audio stream to a smacmover card with HDMI or any other expansion card without quality losses.

I would recommend you to test each video card separately in order to find which is causing the conflicts.

Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO

Intel may make changes to manufacturing life cycle, specifications, and product descriptions at any time, without notice. Performance drops, when four modules are installed?

Other than the above mentioned global peculiarities, this PCB layout has lots itnel minor ones. As usual, BIOS Setup of Intel motherboards has a complicated structure, it’s different from competing solutions, and not always logical.

Please enter a title. Prices may vary for other package types and shipment quantities, and special promotional arrangements may apply. This leads me to believe its a power related issue.

Intel DX58SO “Smackover” Motherboard – Hardware Secrets

One of the new features that stands out on this motherboard xmackover the fact that it supports triple channel memory for improved memory bandwidth. Even a single-channel mode is outperformed only formally. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: This content has been marked as final. But you will hardly want to do it out of insufficiency of available memory capacity — you can always buy 2GB memory modules.

Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration. Main page description shows: Intel doesn’t provide direct warranty support.

Add to Compare Shop for this product. In a meeting between Legit Reviews and Intel it was discovered that three slots should be used if you want the best performance.

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.

We have practically nothing to say about specific performance of this motherboard from Intel relative to its competitors. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method. It means that smacjover theoretical performance drops may occur only when programs and an operating system need more than three modules.

It is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon as complete or accurate. Intel’s implementation is technically correct, and it probably does not disagree d5x8so its idea of a top model.

Intel DX58SO “Smackover” Motherboard

You will receive a reply within 2 business days. But NB temperature during our tests was far from the overheating point, even though there was no assistance from the CPU cooler.

Well, at the very least, PCB layout is much simpler in the first case. SLI certification for motherboards has to be obtained for each model, not for the chipset in general, and the license key is hardcoded into BIOS. View this thread in our forums!

We shall not conjecture the causes that made Intel engineers change so much the habitual design of their motherboards. The board technical notes seem to suggest its dx58do PCIE 2.

You can choose any connection type or use both — only when graphics cards need more power than goes via the dx58do, of course up to 75 W ; it may come in handy for the third graphics card installed into a PCIEx4 slot.
