ASUS P6X58-E WS Review



Testing the ASUS P6X58D-E WS is done by the standardized OverclockersClub regime of tests — mainly benchmarks with real world testing done as well with WinRAR and Excel. Most of the testing targets the motherboard and components on it but a few tests are thrown in that stress the graphics system. Memory is kept as close to stock as possible, even when I proceed to overclock the board. In overclocking I will push the motherboard to near the limits, but keeping it stable and healthy. I will not try for a suicide overclock since most people are more interested in achieving a stable speed.

Testing Setup: Intel Core i7 Socket 1366


Comparison Boards:




Overclocked Settings:

  • Processor: Intel Core i7 920 D0 at 200 X 20 4000 MHz

Overclocking to 4 GHz was extremely easy, all I had to do was raise the multiplier up to x20 and set the voltage manually. This is since the OCC default testing speed is 200x15, everything was able to stay the same except the CPU multiplier. At auto settings the CPU voltage would default to 1.4V so make sure to set it manually! My CPU isn't the best stepping and thus runs warm, or 4.2 GHz would've likely been possible. Unfortunately the ASUS AI Suite II program didn't function well enough to use it during Windows. Everything ran stable at 4 GHz! An important fact to remember is that the motherboard overclocked results will mainly show a difference due to the different CPU overclocks, since they impact scores the most.


Maximum Clock Speed:

Each CPU has been tested for stability at the clock speeds listed when in an overclocked state. These clock speeds will be used to run the test suite and will provide the performance difference increase over the stock settings in the overclocked scoring.
