    Triple channel
    DDR3 1888 CL8 8-8-21,20435MB/s


    DDR3 1987 CL8 8-8-21,21357MB/s


    In Triple channel mode, the performance is extremely high. Itís almost double the previous DDR2/DDR3 platforms.
    Thus it can be seen LGA 1366 takes DDR3 performance into the new generation.

    Dual channel
    DDR3 2000 CL8 7-6-21,21685MB/s


    DDR3 1987 CL7 6-5-21,21967MB/s


    CPU-Z always shows 1 or 2 more in CL value, so I use EVEREST as standard. Besides, the dual channel performance is also great. But in the same clock and CL, Triple channel is still higher.

    Triple channel
    18900/28754MB/s


    OC DDR3 1836 CL8 8-8-24 1T 1.6V
    19853/32866MB/s


    You can see obviously under LGA 1366 structure, 3GB bandwidth is higher than 2GB around 7752MB/s in SANDRA.


    3DMark
    MSI 4870X2 780/1800Mhz

    3DMARK2005


    3DMARK2006


    These 2 results are surprising me. I use the same 4870X2 but the performance is 10~20% higher than LGA775 platform. This is very great performance improvement which only changed platform.


    Concludes GIGABYTE EX58-EXTREME
    Good
    1.EXTREME series has GIGABYTE UD3 components and rich features
    2.100% Japanese made solid capacitors, extra 2-phase PWM for NB and Memory
    3.BIOS is also improved a lot. It provides wide voltage range and rich BIOS parameters are never seen in GIGABYTE products before.
    4.10 SATAII, Dual LAN, 6xDIMM DDR3
    5.Diagnostic LED and Power/Reset/Clear CMOS buttons
    6.3-channel DDR3 performance and 3-Way SLI/CFX supported
    7.6+6 Dynamic PWM, Intel latest VRD11.1 design, Exclusive DES Advanced for efficient power control.
    8.EasyTune6 provides plenty features in OS.

    Weak
    1.LGA 1366 platform is too costive at the moment.
    2.I7 CPU max power consumption is 130W, a little bit too high
    3.If GIGABYTE can provide audio module card that will be better


    Performance ★★★★★★★★★★
    Components ★★★★★★★★★★
    Outlook ★★★★★★★★★☆
    C/P ★★★★★★★☆☆☆


    GIGABYTE is good at using better quality components with the same selling price.
    EXTREME series is the product has both performance and OC capability.
    So itís absolutely the most hi-end product in GIGABYTE line.
    2oz copper, DES, 50000hrs Japanese made solid capacitors, dynamic PWM, and Hybird SLENT-PIPE2 combination, all features are very impressive.

    DDR3 performance and OC capability are much better than P45 under this new structure. The market price and BIOS update OC ability will be the key for X58.
    One more important factor is X58 is NV SLI/ATI CFX combo. This is the dream for many 3D performance seekers. X58 makes this dream come true.

    This time, Intelís changed is really impressive for the performance and specifications.
    The product key selling factor is always price. In the near future, we can see LGA1366 replacing LGA775 as hi-end product leader.
    However, what budget you have, what product you get.
    The best C/P is always key concern. If you are going to build a new PC and have very high budget, LGA1366 is your must consideration. :)

    I'm really happy they've used a better colour scheme compared to their other boards. I'll either be buying the EX58-UD5 or EX58-extreme whatever i can get my hand's on as stock is scarce where i am.
