The Asus Z10PE-D16/4L is a powerful server motherboard for the Xeon E5-2600 V3 family of processors. It can house two such CPUs, along with a massive amount of RAM and several SATA drives. It includes multiple USB 2.0 and gigabit Ethernet ports for connectivity, basic onboard graphics, and several PCI-Express 3.0 slots for additional expansion. It also comes bundled with an Asus IKVM module for remote management, and supports PIKE cards for adding advanced RAID functionality.

We have tested this board to work with VMWare VSphere 5, making it a great virtualization platform. It also works equally well with traditional operating systems like Windows 7 (Professional and above), Windows Server and Linux.

Note: The chipset on this motherboard runs hot and needs active cooling to keep it at a safe temperature. Either a rackmount chassis with fans near the chipset or a chassis with a medium/high flow side fan over the chipset is required. If you have any questions, please work with your Puget rep to ensure adequate cooling.

This board is excellent for dual Xeon based servers, but can also make sense if you need a workstation with more memory capacity than the Z10PE-D8 WS. Please note, though, that it is lacking in the number of USB connections and has no built-in audio - so you may want to add those features via expansion cards if this will be used in a direct-access role.

This Asus motherboard does not have onboard audio. This typically is not an issue for servers, but if you would like to have audio capabilities, then you will want to add a dedicated sound card to your configuration when using this motherboard.

This motherboard does offer (4) 1Gb Ethernet ports. So if you don't need more than (4) Ethernet ports, I recommend not adding a dedicated Ethernet card.

Note: As this is a server/workstation motherboard, some desktop features are not present: specifically, standby/sleep functionality is not guaranteed.
