Quoted from Sapphire Pure Black X58 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Sapphire Pure Black X58 reviews & previews
"The last straw for this product is that it’s a bit expensive compared to the competition, and since those competing motherboards have similar connectivity specs, superior multi-GPU capabilities and are simply more polished, the Pure Black X58 simply doesn’t offer anything compelling enough for us to recommend it. This motherboard kind of seems like an interim project that Sapphire put together to keep their new motherboard team busy until they had a chance to start work on Sandy Bridge models, like the impressive looking Pure Black P67 Hydra."
"With the release of the cost effective Intel Core i7 2500k and 2600k processors the mid range performance goal posts have been moved, but it is clear than an overclocked 980x is still far out of reach of anything on the market right now. It will be some time before Intel update their flagship range, so the Sapphire Pure Black X58 partnered up with a 970/980x in an overclocked state is one of the fastest systems money can buy. We are even more impressed that such an early preproduction board with a beta bios proved to be rock stable throughout our intensive stress testing and overclocking phase."
"I will say that I am awed with the direction that they are going with this board and with the Sandy-Bridge board that is coming next. I hope that the same kind of styling and attention is being put into this new board and other motherboards from here on out. I think the other manufactures better watch out as exiting from the PURE BLACK darkness is something that they should fear."
"Sapphire's latest motherboard is designed to be an enthusiast grade product that comes packaged with a very robust feature set and all high-quality components."
"It's still Intel's premier platform and you have technologies being released that consumers want but can't find on other platforms. So, the release of this board is not late to the market but just right with the offered feature set. It looks as though Sapphire has improved their motherboards and have chosen Intel's top platform to show off their manufacture and design capabilities. Add in the P67 board they have produced and the mini ITX Fusion APU boards getting ready to explode onto the market and Sapphire has set themselves in a solid position in the motherboard business. The Sapphire Pure Black X58 delivers great performance with the latest feature set and would be a great option for consideration with your socket 1366 Intel based build."
