Sapphire is very well known for its video cards based upon AMD chips they have had a few motherboards based upon AMD chipsets as well. With the launch of the Pure Black X58 motherboard Sapphire has taken the next step into building a brand that doesn’t just do video cards and steps into the Intel LimeLight. The Pure Black X58 board is great for those wanting a 3-card Crossfire setup as the spacing between slots is perfect without blocking anything. The board performed well, within expected parameters and overclocked the Core i7 950 very well. If you are looking for a different flavor of motherboard for the X58 platform other than the standard variety you have seen, the new Pure Black from Sapphire is a very good alternative to look for.
