Hey gang,

 This bullet point is cut off:

•    Supported Intel CPUs and Intel chipsets. While XTU 1.0, with DCC
layered on top, worked with Intel’s own P45, X38 and X48 boards (socket
775), ETU is 

Plus, while I'm sure most folks can figure it out, it would have been handy to have included a link to download the utility, or at least where it can be found.

Got info?

 Thanks!

"... ETU now works with Intel P55 and X58 chipsets as well, provided BIOS support exists."

 

Sorry about that...

As best I can tell, ASUS doesn't make a P7X58D Premium board.  It's not listed on their website or Newegg's.  They do however make a P6X58D Premium board, which is what I assume was intended

Yes, you're right, it's the Asus P6X58D Premium.

Maybe someone from EVGA is reading this. You should at least make it available. I have a P55 Classified board and 875k CPU. Intel's tool looks like it could do a much better job than E-LEET.

Spammers have made it to Maximumpc.  I wish they would all go away very fast.

This looks like a good utility to use...but Asus doesn't support my mobo (Asus P6T Deluxe V2). Should I just install it anyway to see if it works?

No, ETU (or XTU, which is Intel's preferred nomenclature) only works if the BIOS specifically supports it. There are hooks in the BIOS that XTU calls. If those hooks aren't there, the utility won't work.

Intel thought BTX would take off, and look how that ended up; so I don't have high hopes for this.
