an x58 build to monitor and record a wired ip camera in my parrots nesting box.
i wanted a gpu to go with the blues and the gold ram, the intent is to have on of my 980tis installed and connected to a small monitor.
i put the matrix gtx580 in for now and it looks pretty good, but im thinking it would look better if i wrap the shroud in gold coloured foil. 
 
asus p6x58d premium
x5690 xeon
adata xpg 1866 24gb (6 x 4)
asus matrix gtx580 platinum as a place holder, deciding on which 980ti to use.
seasonic 750w psu, coolermaster hyper212, silicon power 256gb ssd, pcie usb3 controller card
all jammed into the coolermaster q500l micro atx tower laying on its back like a pc should be.
last image is from the camera in night vision, the male above is feeding the female below.

The X58 is still one of my favorite Intel chipsets. Excellent mod.

yeah its crazy how well the x58 chipset still runs, using a sata ssd it is nearly as fast as a present day system.

Intel made Damn sure they didn't do that again! Thanx for sharing it with us cause this was a great time to be building pc's back then.

you are right, they dont want something having such useful longevity, new sales every couple of years, not every ten.
and it has been fun tinkering with the voltages and things, ive overclocked it to 4.2 and had no issues.
 
and i forgot the all important boxes pics! i bought the mb box seperate for $25 and it came with all the proper accoutrements, unfortunately the cpu fan blocks the use of the little fan on the heatsink on top of the vrm.
