In November last year Intel released their Core i7 range of CPUs along with the X58 chipset and as we demonstrated in our original review the platform is very impressive.

Last month we took a look at a selection of boards which were released around i7 launch time, some of which were very impressive. (X58 Round-Up December 08)

Today we have four more X58 based boards from MSI, ECS and Foxconn and we will run each of the boards through a selection of real world tests including media encoding, Photoshop and gaming as well as some overclocking.  By the end of this review you should be in no doubt which board best suits your needs when building a new Core i7 system.
