    why is the premium so much more expensive?
  5. Premium series are always more expensive because of having some extra features(which aren't useful for most users though)
  6. To summarize the Differences: The premium has everything the E model has as well as the following:
    1-More heat pipes, even connecting the southbridge.
    2-Dual Gigabit Lan
    3-Rear e-sata bracket
    4-A PCI slot fan
    Otherwise they are Identical, I bet you can even cross-flash their bios! It's up to you to decide whether these differences worth the extra 40-50 bucks or not. I'm getting the premium coz I know I'll need the e-sata bracket.

    - More accesories
    - Better cooling solution
    - Onboard 1 x Reset switch
    - Dual Gigabit LAN controllers 2*Marvell 88E8056® PCIe Gigabit
  8. In most cases Premium has a better cooling but between P6X58D-E and Premium,the cooling seems to be the same

    Take a look at the pipe configuration. Three pipes in the premium, only one in the "-E" version.
  10. Yup you are right,at first i was looking at P6X58D(not the E version)thanks for telling :)

    Short answer: The -E is a far better deal than the Premium, but Gigabyte's X58A-UD3R is an even better deal than the -E.
  12. I am interested in buying the board. I am looking to build a new computer with all the greatest hardware. Where does this board rank compared to the Asus Rampage 3?
    I am an moderate gamer mostly looking for a system for video editing. I want to overclock an i7 920 to around 3.8. Is it possible?
  13. ASUS P6X58D Premium is the best buy for the price, features and future technology (USB 3.0, SATA 6gbs and supports six-core processing). I wanted the ASUS Rampage III Extreme but the cost was way too over the top. I am not a fan of any company, i just recommend this board to the Original Poster and anyone else.

    I beg to differ. The premium isn't a bad board, but I fail to see why it's so expensive. I reccomend the ga x58a ud3r and ud5 over the p6x58d-e and premium. Simply because the asus boards cost more and seem to be no better. Don't get me wrong I like asus they make great products especially their ROG styling is amazing. But Asus' insane amount of features make them expensive compared to bassically similar product from gigabyte.
  15. I would agree. Newegg has the UD5 board for $269.00 after rebate. It looks like it has everything the premium board has.
    I am also in the market for a new MB. I do like all the software features that the Gigabyte board has compared to the ASUS.
    I am leaning towards the UD5 board.
  16. I did a quick comparison of the 2 bords in question. You make the call:)

  17. I'd get the ud5. It's flawed I'll give you that, but it's far less expensive and as you can see from the specs it's simply more board for less money. Apart from the specs it's also packed with dozens of LEDs for temps and voltages and a debug screen for post proggress.

    Both asus and gigabyte software however is POS I've used both the ud5 and -e software and it's lame. Just use the BIOS.

    IMO: UD5 all the way
  18. Another thing is that the P6X58D Premium does not support raid on SATA 6Gb/s, while the E does!
  19. If your using GTX 460's sli the Asus board supports intel turbo boost.

    Wouldn't this be better than the UD5?
  20. What?!! All boards based on intel chipset supports intel turbo boost which is a CPU feature and has nothing to do with the choice of graphics cards, whether nvidia or ati, single GPU or multiple!
  21. If you go up a couple of posts there is a comparison between the UD5 and the Asus. In the comparison it shows the Asus supports intel boost but the UD5 leaves it blank. As a novice I noticed this difference while comparing the two. I really don't know the answer I'm only reading the differences between the mother boards.
  22. Never rely on such comparisons. Read some reviews on the i7 processors. Turbo boost is, as said before, a CPU feature and any LGA1366 or 1156 mobo , from the cheapest to the fanciest and most expensive one, support it.

    Today New Egg has the Asus premium for the same cost as the UD5. I was planning on getting the D-E but for $30.00 more am I better off going with the premium? I'm ordering today. Thanks
  24. Anyone please?
  25. If you ask me, go with the UD3 !! It has the best value among all mentioned mobos. It has everything most ppl need with good price, reliability and overclockability. See this for more info.
