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:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
