ASUS X99-E-10G WS Review

Up Close

Whilst as a Workstation board the X99-E-10G might be lacking in a few of the design flair touches that we've come to associate with ASUS motherboards, nonetheless it remains attractive in a utilitarian way. There is a huge selection of accessories in the box, lovely if you like taking your time over your new purchase and really feel like you've got good value for money.

Connection wise the X99-E-10G has you completely covered. Two 8 Pin power inputs provide all your CPU could need, whilst the ASUS MemOK feature now comes with a EZ-XMP dip switch as well. The WS supports multiple cooling options for your hardware too with plenty of fan headers including 12V ones and dedicated pump headers. With almost everyone using AIOs to cool their CPUs these days we think it's a welcome move.

We'd be remiss if we didn't once again emphasise the inclusion of two Intel 10GBit LAN ports on the ASUS WS. Falling storage prices and ever faster internet mean that even 1Gb connections are saturated, so the increase in bandwidth is incredibly useful and further highlights the focussed nature of the X99-E-10G.

Asus does have the xG-U2008 switch that will provide 10 Gigabit network switching for $249.Quote

Thanks for the review. I've been looking at that board for a while and couldn't decide between this and the RVE Edition 10.

Too bad it didn't have SFP+ ports for its 10GigE. Would've loved to throw out the separate 10GigE card while upgrading to this board.

Also it does only have two 10GigE ports. The other ports are all 1GigE.

A valid alternative if you've got SFP+ 10GigE is this one: TP-Link T1700G-28TQ

I've got one myself. It's great so far, especially for that price. Suitable for livingroom-use 'cause its fanless and it even has four 10GigE ports. Quote

The updated UEFI so M.2/U.2 drives are recognised isn't up on the support page yet. Sent a support request to Asus, hopefully they get back to me quickly with an updated UEFI or the MB is going back as I can't use it with my 750Quote
