Looks like a `reference` X58 mobo, I do wish they`d sort their lives out with the pwm/bridge cooling towers.
10! SATAII sounds pretty juicy. With a decent raid controller, people might love it.
What`s gonna set these X58s apart are the basics; component quality/standards; BIOS; ... and I was going to say features in terms of SATAII ports etc, but some manufs start with 6 then make one with 8 and call it something different.
Best of luck to Evga. (any Abit people working for them? lol)
