The X58A-GD65 is based on the LGA1366 socket, it has 2 PCI-E X16 slots at full bandwidth and a PCI-E X16 Slot that works at X4 bandwidth. Other slots include 2 PCI-E X1 slots and 2 PCI slots. It has the ICH10R southbridge and supports CrossfireX ONLY.

Other features:

  • 10 USB 2.0 ports and 2 USB3.0 ports
  • 8 SATA ports, 2 of which are SATA 6 GB/s, the rest are SATA 3GB/s
  • 8 channel audio
  • Ethernet port
