The EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI is an XL-ATX motherboard released in late 2009. This board is comparable to EVGA’s standard X58 Classified (3-way SLI), but differs by way of an extra PCI-E slot for 4-way SLI functionality. Primary features include support for the Intel Core i7 processor, 7 total PCI-E slots and a maximum of 24GB DDR3 memory. A total of 8 SATA 3 GB/s ports have also been integrated. Enthusiast features include onboard Clear CMOS, Power and Reset buttons with built-in power and HDD LED indicator lights. Overclocking is well supported with 100% solid state capacitors and up to 600W of power dedicated to the CPU. The LGA 1366 socket also has triple the amount of gold content for better conductivity. Users of this motherboard must own a case with 10 or more expansion slots.
