The Asus Z10PE-D8 WS a feature-rich motherboard for the Xeon E5-2600 V3/V4 family of processors. It can house two such CPUs along with large amounts of RAM. It also includes multiple USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports, dual gigabit Ethernet ports for networking, surround-sound audio, and several PCI-Express 3.0 slots for additional expansion. That wide range of connectivity aims it more at use in a workstation rather than a server, but it could fill either role.

William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
If you want a powerful, dual CPU system for roles outside of the server room, I highly recommend this board! It has all the standard connectivity you'd expect on a desktop or workstation, like USB 3.0 and audio, which are so often missing from server-class hardware. It also has a ton of PCI-Express slots, allowing a wide range of add-on card configurations.

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