The EVGA X58 SLI Classified is an EATX motherboard released in mid-2009. This “Classified” board offers more enthusiast options compared to the standard EVGA X58 SLI. Primary features include support for the Intel Core i7 processor, four PCI-E slots and a maximum of 24GB DDR3 memory. With 4 PCI-E x16 graphics slots, 2 of these work at full speed while the others work in shared mode. This configuration allows for 3-way SLI plus an additional PhysX card on a single board. A total of 10 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 an onboard CPU temperature readout. EVGA includes several software-based overclocking tools, including Vdroop Control for stabilizing voltages and E-LEET Tuning Utility for immediate access to BIOS-level overclocking settings.
