Asus X58 Sabretooth Review

First Look

Hardcore nicely describes this packaging. No nonsense. It's a tough box for a TUF product. Normally motherboard packaging is strewn with logos and the like. The Sabertooth solely sells its longevity and it makes for a refreshing change.

Further reinforcing the importance of the reliability of the Sabertooth, you get a "certificate of reliability" in the box, should you have doubted Asus' intentions.

Although the manual is to be expected, a five year warranty shows that Asus have put their money where their mouth is when it comes to the Sabertooth.

In keeping with the Military, all go no show, aspect of the Sabertooth, the IO shield is black, and the SATA cables are black too. It's the Spinal Tap of motherboard accessories.

And here she is. At first glance you might think this is some kind of hideous abomination. But it's only because you're trained to look for blue or red.

Stop. Take another look. It's easy on the eye. We found the more time we spent with it, the more we liked it. Until now we actually think it looks fantastic. It's just such a lovely change. Surprisingly neutral. Very inoffensive. We really like it. By the end of the next page you might too. By the end of the review you definitely will.

I like it. A lot.

You could do a wicked cammo computer using that. I was thinking about it the other week as it goes. There's this company in the USA that dips things in this weird cammo stuff and it coats it. They used it on American Chopper once to do a military chopper.Quote
