Well, I can tell ya you won't be the first in the neighborhood with X58 technology. Personally, I wouldn't even consider it at this point. It would be like buying grandma's old Buick. X78 should be hitting the stands shortly. It's supposed to be more stable and smoking fast with quad memory channels. With the SB-E/1155, it should cruise at 3.6GHz bone stock and 4.3 without breathing hard. X58 is old and a troublesome technology but I promise not to say "I told you so".
