KMoore4318I have three I keep for Spares, I had 4 but one died, EVGA replaced it with a X299, And Gave it the lifetime warranty as the Old one had it; But a Lightning strike took out the Ethernet ports, so I added a card. EVGA, lifetime warranty doesn't cover Fire, Floods, or Lightning. Thew X58 is still a fine system.
AdangamezI got a x58 passed down, still a competitive MB? Or worth keeping as spare and getting upgrade?
coffeemonsterhow much RAM are you guys running on your X58 rigs? my EVGA has 24GB but has started to only detect 16GB unfortunately
Davabledcoffeemonsterhow much RAM are you guys running on your X58 rigs? my EVGA has 24GB but has started to only detect 16GB unfortunatelyI'm running 12 gigs of G.Skill 1600 MHz CL 9 RAM (6 sticks, 2 gigs each). I've had to RMA one or more of my RAM sticks 3 times over the past 12 years. Thankfully my RAM also has a lifetime warranty. Edit: Welcome to the eVGA forums!
I also still have my X58 card in use, I'm really happy with it, I have only one and hope it lasts forever, but I can no longer find the right vers. of the overclocking software EVGA E-LEET 1.02.8, can I use one of the others?
I have since just tried the E-leet X 0.08.2, at the bottom of the page it says otherwise it should be able to be used with the X58 system, but it writes itself, it is not usable on this system ...What to do

LeMakisarI was still using it as a secondary computer, but my wife needed my "newer" X99 for her job for some time, so it's become my main PC again.I've renewed my watercooling fluid last week-end and updated what I could / clean up Windows.I only have e-leet that doesn't work on it anymore, and no way of finding a working version sadly ... About 11 years of service and still very relevant, as I had a 980X and 12GB of RAM on it. I'd probably suffer a bit on gaming for some games though (GTX580 SC) My only concern now is that I'm trying to build a new ryzen based computer, and it's really a shame there is no EVGA motherboard ... I'm not really satisfied with the Asus/GB motherboards (about the only brands available here), and of course no way of having a 10 year warranty on these :/
SuperConkerI am running an X58 computer still (as my secondary PC) with the following specs:Evga X58 Classified (E760)Intel Xeon W3690 (3733Mhz) Corsair Dominator Platinum 24GB DDR3 (1600Mhz / 7-8-8-24 / 1.5V)Corsair H100 AIO Cooler (CWCH100)Corsair AX 860 (860W PSU) SATA Drives: Samsung 840 PRO SSD 256 GB (Windows 10 Pro)Samsung 840 EVO SSD 1000 GB (Games)4x Seagate Barracuda ES3 HDD 2000 GB (Storage) PCIe Cards: Evga GeForce GTX Titan X SC + Hybrid AIO Cooler (400-HY-0990-B1)Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (HP 6VF53AA)Asus USB 3.1 (2x Type-A 10Gbps) It's had a few upgrades as you can see (PSU / SSD's / PCIe cards)but the other components are over 10 years old. And it is still working perfectly fine after all this time. I am mostly surprised by the 4x Seagate HDD's and the Corsair H100 AIO cooleras i thought for sure they would not last this long (with nearly 24/7 usage).
Nero418_VSThe truth is that with the latter I am suffering a lot, because I have to replace the CPU sockets and today, I do not know who can do it or if EVGA can do it paying me the costs, I would not mind because it is a board to which I have enough affection, perhaps more than any other, I do not lose hope haha.
HoggleMy parents are still using an X58 based system as it’s fast enough for email for them. I might upgrade them to a new system though since I have a i7 7700k system I am using but it would take replacing their case.
