I am getting ready to buy an DX58SO too and so are others.
This is a highly Mac-compatible board that, after a rough introduction, has turned out to be a very solid overclocking platform. Intel has recently released its third revision of DX58SO.
We will be providing 100% working Snow Leopard support for it at ConvertIt2Mac.com:
Convert It 2 Mac.com - Allowing you to convert the tools you need and use to Mac!
Other select Intel boards will be fully supported too.

Retail Snow Leopard working on DX58SO with EFI Chameleon
oh SHIT!!! so I got a retail copy of snow leopard working on the dx58so with chameleon and efi boot!
I followed this tutorial yesterday and now have my system running smoothly with snow leopard.
[GUIDE] Retail Snow Leopard Install on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 (Core i7) Mobo - InsanelyMac Forum
you need 2 drives to accomplish this but I can say it works! just replace the appropriate kext and you will have sound, ethernet, and video card working, after install and first boot to snow leopard use osx86tools to add an efi string for your video card. My system
Intel DX58SO Motherboard
EVGA Nvidia 9800 GT
OCZ 1333MHZ RAM
If you were having as much trouble as me getting this mobo working with snow leopard, then you are stoked now, this is a very easy to follow tutorial that is pretty much completely automated, I dont know much of anything about efi and dsdt and all that other mumbo jumbo and I was able to use this tutorial and get it all working. I hope this helps many more DX58SO users out there since it is a very superior mobo.
