On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.

Alrighty, meet the EVGA X58 packaging. It's pretty clear to see the product is SLI capable. Nice design, black and simple ... I like it. eVGA being a tier 1 NVIDIA partner didn't include a CrossfireX logo on the box though. Rest assured it's compatible with Crossfire/CrossfireX though.

When we look at the bundle we see that eVGA includes all the necessities. I like the nice subtle details in simple things like the black design cables. This makes the overall look of the PC just so much more fun to observe.

eVGA X58 motherboard review

The overall looks are quite good. I like the black design. We have a heatpipe cooler on the Southbridge chip and MOSFET / voltage regulators close to the rear Multi I/O panel. The northbridge is being actively cooled. But let's look at the motherboard a little more in-depth.

From left to right the PS2 keyboard connector, below it 2x USB.  Then nice to see a CLEAR CMOS button. Digital audio both a TOSLINK and COAXIAL connector, very lovely. Then again two USB ports, firewire connector and an eSATA port. Then yet again another 4x USB 2.0 ports, totaling up towards 8 ports on the read panel.

Lovely to see are the two Gigabit Ethernet ports, and then the audio ports. There's plenty of connectivity for sure.
