After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
That is until now.
In this review we will be looking at a mainstream motherboard option from EVGA based on the Intel X58 chipset. In the early days EVGA wouldn't touch an Intel chipset due to the lack of SLI support however as many of you know the X58 supports both multi GPU options.
However looking at the board you would think it only supported SLI.
In some ways a completely black design is also an economical one. Think of it this way, once you have installed your video card the heatsink completely covers the expansion slot thus hiding the color from view. If you plan to load the board up with expansion cards and memory it really doesn't matter what color the expansion parts are. Then again color sells on so many levels.
