    I have been looking at this Motherboard as the dream build DAW Id love to build sometime next summer. I think this mobo is recently released, and should be fairly competitive with performance for price. I would love to experiment with overclocking with present system and platform, then move to a more advanced system as such ex58 extreme.

    Is there anyone out there with this mobo, and an i7 920? would you care to share you thoughts or regrets, opinions, and problems or success with this mobo here?

    I want to OC to 4.0 gig or higher with air or liq. cooling.
    I want to sli or crossfire w/ 2 top end single gpu cards. both at a full x16... w/ pos. physics card.
    And I want a stable system 24/7.

    care to discuss this mobo and what would compare for under $400 for mobo alone...?
    "There is a difference between being ignorant and being lost...."
    DAW list:
    Danger Den 26, BFG 1200 watt, GA-X58 Extreme, I7-920 2.66, 6GB Corsair Dominator, 2x ATI 5870, 4 x 500 Gig HDD, PCI Audiophile Interface.

    That Giga mobo would work fine, has integrated H2O for chipset cooling. 4.0GHz should be fine as long as your i7 920 CPU can hit that, which shouldn't be a problem for a 920 with D0 stepping.

    For under $400 your only real option for a high-end system setup like that would be the ASUS Rampage II Extreme, several people around the forums have that board (including me) and it absolutely kicks A$$. Highly recommended.

    No he does not have this board, he has the UD5 like I do. The Extreme is kind of the same thing with the exception of the funny cooler and that's it. Also I'm pretty sure they discontinued it and are about to release the Extreme2 with USB3 & 6 GB/s sata connections.

    EDIT: OP, to your questions...

    Board is very easy to OC to 4.0 and beyond. I have mine at 4.11 on air.
    SLI is full 16x. Though to be honest, unless you have games that take advantage of PhysX you will never notice a difference anyway.
    24/7 reliability has always been top notch here.

    Personally, the extreme bling to dollar ratio wasn't enough for me to jump in head first for the extreme model. The UD5 does everything this one does and saved me a substantial amount of money for other parts that were more useful.

    I heard the Extreme is or is about to go eol too

    Not sure too about what sort of overclock you will be looking for but heard that a hardmod is needed on current models to exceed 222 Bclk....now as a guy that doesn't yet have x58 I'm not sure of the implications of this but thought it needed mentioning
    Rig2: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Asus z9 pe-d8 ws, 32gb ripjawsz under water, rig3 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Supermicro 7047A-T 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig4: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @3.1), Supermicro x9 DAi 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig5: 2*e5-2660 (16c/32t @2.7), Supermicro x9 DRW iF 32GB 1600 ecc reg, on air

    Thanks everyone! Please keep the replies coming!

    Good point on the sata 6gb.... I would want that!
    I actually have little knowledge of using physics cards. And I do want to get games that will utilize full x16 sli or crossfire.

    And as far as I know, if i had hardware that was capable of a stable OC, not being able to go farther than a 222bclk would be a bottleneck. Correct? And Im not sure if not having usb 3.0 is an issue... though it would be kool I guess.

    I want the fastest dam machine for gaming I can get for my money, This build of mine would not be my DAW, but an expensive yes, but careful thought out build. I want to learn how things work and why they do what they do. Im a very hand on type, and I know only the basics.

    I could spend up near $2500-$3500 for this build. I wont even start it this year.... Im feel the need to research every nook and crany of every different model and brand, to know I made the RIGHT descision.
    I very much appreciate all the replies, comments, opinions, links/resources and facts!

    I actually have little knowledge of using physics cards. And I do want to get games that will utilize full x16 sli or crossfire.
    Almost any game benefits from the added power of dual cards. However, most games are not PhysX capable.

    And as far as I know, if i had hardware that was capable of a stable OC, not being able to go farther than a 222bclk would be a bottleneck. Correct? And Im not sure if not having usb 3.0 is an issue... though it would be kool I guess.
    The baseclock limitation of 222 is not going to hamper you much in real world use. An i7 920 will be pushing hard at around 200 anyway. USB 3 specs are not fully finalized yet though neither was USB 2 when it took off.

    this looks like the newly released ex58-ud6.... mine is the the ud5 but not the extreme version which in my research i found there to be not much added benefit. for my two cents worth im very happy with gigabyte and i especially like their online live support chat. my board is very stable with lots of good features and settings for overclocking. they have been around a long time and i would say that that they are one of the top companies. if only they would get a better color scheme... hahaha just kidding i dont mind it except for the pink whats with that?

    I am very excited to see the revised version. If anyone has leads or resources to these coming up next, would you mind sharing with me?

    I agree. Im not trying to spam... I have looked and looked and read and read. I have a feeling this board will suit me best. There is alot on the mobo... but I feel its not overcrowded. I may not have a NEED for this board or platform for that matter. yet, I feel I want the best performance I can get to enjoy it... I like gaming, and Im starting a new hobby with 3d rendering, modeling, video effects ect... also, music is a huge hobby of mine and will be served nice with a 1366 platform for years to come!

    I Cant wait to get an i7 920 for this rig, and then follow up with rest of the components to finish the build.
