ASUS X99-E-10G WS Review
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.
