Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
There's no doubting that the ASUS P6X58D-E is a tremendous board. It has features to rival more expensive boards and rather than compromising on performance and overclockability, ASUS has removed others less useful features to reach its current price point.

This is the first computer I've self-built in quite a while, but have typically gone with ASUS in the past and I am extremely glad I did. The board layout is good, with plenty of room for large graphics cards. It was extremely easy to install and even easier to setup, with on-board lights indicating RAM compatibility and boot errors. Highly recommend.
Purchased one of these for a from scratch build less then a year ago. After a couple of months it wouldn't boot anymore and fried my SSD drive. Asus sent me a replacement (had to argue that their website states Canada is included in their special warranty program). Now less then 4 months later the replacement has crapped out and wont boot anymore.
This was my first build from scratch so I wanted a good board that is fast and reliable. I did my due diligence and came up with this board. I have to say that I am thrilled. I bought all the related parts which were available for pickup the same day I ordered - I like that, hate to wait you know...
Bought this case for a game rig and couldn't be happier. It has performed to all the specifications I expected, and is stable just like all ASUS boards. Has a good option layout in bios lot's of tweaks.
Was debating between this and the Sabertooth to pair with my i7 960. I ended up going with this for the overclocking features and could not be happier. Played around with OCing my CPU and RAM before reverting everything back to default settings for longevity. If you plan on OCing an i7 in the future then this is the board to get. Otherwise, get the cheaper Sabertooth.
I have pushed an i7 970 to 4.2ghz with this puppy. I cant get the bclk higher than 210. I have settled with 200bclk to keep stability. Great price on this amazing board. I would recommend this board to anyone.
I have just completed the single nicest looking build I've done yet... SO pretty! Aside from the great cable management of the HAF 932 case it's in, much of the credit goes to the ASUS. The layout is perfection. All the cords are hidden because of this. Also, even with a massive Noctua on it, you could fit 6 sticks of RAM that were a foot tall. BIOS features are great as usual with ASUS. I've always had ASUS MBs but almost went with the Giga Ud3R this time. Glad I got this.
