x58 will be Intel chipset.
To check what motherboard you have check this info in BIOS for example and then on manufacturer´s web page check specifications (chipset)
Or install some tool which will check HW specs for you - e.g. SiSoft Sandra Lite:

Or AIDA64 and some of it´s trial:

You have a HM76 chipset. It's written on your screenshot.

So no, it's not a X58 motherboard.

Thanks...so is there something special that would make an x58 run this device and an HM76 not run it?

I don't see any mention of X58 for the Intensity Shuttle for USB 3.0.
It's an USB 3 device, so it should work with any motherboard equipped with USB 3 ports.

BTW, here is a list of tested notebooks with Intensity: http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4277

While your particular model is not listed (you have a Probook 4540s, right?), a Probook 4740s is listed as working.
