Besides, the motherboard comes with a fan, which can be installed on the NB heatsink we are inclined to recommend using it. Besides, the motherboard offers the following extra functions:. Impossible to install six memory modules? You can also try rolling back to the previous BIOS version and check the behavior of the system. You will receive a reply within 2 business days. A Parallel port is a computer interface used for connecting peripherals, most often printers.

We got this motherboard without a package and bundle, so we cannot provide detailed information.

Well, at the very least, PCB layout is much simpler in the first case. Listing of these RCP does not constitute a formal pricing offer from Intel. Thus, in our opinion, all these memory problems of the Intel DX58SO are non-issue or simply dilettantish. Besides, all of them use a better thermal interface than usual.

Intel DX58SO “Smackover” Motherboard – Hardware Secrets

But the other components have been shuffled by Intel engineers. 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.

We shall not conjecture the causes that made Intel engineers change so much the habitual design of their motherboards. Please refer nitel the Launch Date for market availability. Efficient contact with the board is one of the major reasons of high temperature of heatsinks — it improves heat exchange. This content has been marked as final.


Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO

Core i7 Product Number: Allows for delivery and returns. However, this layout does not bring any noticeable inconveniences, only the power cable now takes an unusual path to the processor socket. Clear queue Compare 0. This means Kingston triple channel memory kits are in the works and will be released around the same time as this platform.

What’s the marketing drawback of this solution? Intel doesn’t provide direct warranty support. But even omitting our benchmarking results, we should take into account that memory space of the first three modules is addressed in the top triple-channel mode, and only the fourth module is addressed in a single-channel mode.

Your name and email address will not be added to any mailing list, and you will not receive email from Intel Corporation unless requested. This motherboard lacks various indicators, which are often used in top products.

Besides, the smmackover comes with a fan, which can be installed on the NB heatsink we are inclined to recommend using it. Taxes and shipping, etc.

Trusted Platform Module TPM is a component on the desktop board that is specifically designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today’s software by providing a protected space for key operations and other security critical tasks. 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.

The processor socket is moved much closer to the center of the board, its voltage regulator takes up the rest of the room traditionally reserved for the Northbridge, and the CPU power connector is shifted further down if we take a look at this photo.


iXBT Labs – Intel DX58SO “Smackover” Motherboard

This board used to randomly lose connection on sx58so LAN port, at first from waking up, but that was fixed from a bios update, but would skackover lose connection on the ethernet after a while on windows 7, I had to mess with alot of different drivers and might have solved the problem later on. A Parallel port is a computer interface used for connecting peripherals, msackover often printers.

Besides, it has no indicators for power saving technologies that disable idle channels in a PWM power controllerbecause it does not use such technologies. This discussion dmackover locked. Where Intel looks confident is the on-board cooling system. I would recommend you to test each video card separately in order to find which is causing the conflicts. Besides, the advanced BIOS mode is enabled by an on-board jumper. One of the new features that stands out on this motherboard is the fact that it supports triple channel memory for improved memory bandwidth.
