ASUS Workstation Exclusive Features
Streamlined-airflow design with 16 DIMM slots in EEB form factor
Z10PE-D16 WS packs advanced features onto a standard Enterprise Electronics Bay (EEB) to deliver superior flexibility and performance with dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3/v4 socket, 16 DDR4 DIMM slots, and six PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. Furthermore, Z10PE-D16 WS’s layout is designed for optimal airflow, with both the processor and memory slots placed in a parallel arrangement directly behind the fan inlet to promote maximum cooling for increased efficiency — making this motherboard ideal for both datacenter and workstation use.
Rich expansion capability with 6 PCI-E Gen3 x16 slots
Six PCI-E Gen3 x16 Slots gives you the sufficient I/O interfaces to fulfill your demand for graphic or computing solution. You’ll be able to run both multi-GPU setups. The board features SLI on demand technology, not only supporting up to three graphics cards in a 3-Way SLI but also supporting up to Quad GPU CrossfireX™ technology.
Complete remote server management
The IPMI 2.0-compliant ASMB8-iKVM module enables remote BIOS updates, standalone KVM/Java utility, video recording and BSOD capture. With out-of-band management ASMB8-iKVM provides round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis even if the server operating system is down or offline, and all through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers. In addition, ASWM Enterprise software provides one-to-multiple centralized management including BIOS flash, software dispatch, task scheduler, remote control and power control, via colorful and informative graphical interface.

Dual CPU overclocking for incredible performance
Z10PE-D16 WS breaks performance barriers by giving you the capability to overclock dual CPUs. Ai Overclock Tuner and Xeon Turbo Charger in the BIOS are dedicated to boosting the CPU’s overclocking performance by up to 10% to reach incredible CPU High Performance Linpack (HPL) scores and improves SPEC CPU™ 2006 benchmark results by up to 6.87%.
HPL Linkpack Test Configuration:
MB:Z10PE-D16 WS / CPU : Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3/DRAM: Samsung 8GB DDR4-2133 RDIMM*16 /O.S: Windows® Server 2012 R2
SPEC CPU™ 2006 Test Configuration:
MB:Z10PE-D16 WS / CPU : Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3/DRAM: Samsung 16GB DDR4-2133 RDIMM*8 /O.S:REHL64-bit 6.5 Kernel
Q-Code Logger – one-touch checker
Q-Code logger is your one-touch checker that lets users easily check system status at any time. Plug a flash drive into adjacent USB port, press the motherboard's dedicated Q-Code logger button and all ASUS Q-Code event logs for the current live session will be copied to the drive even with the system off.
Dr. Power for intelligent PSU detection
As the Z10PE-D16 WS is meant for professional users who rely on non-stop operation, stable power delivery is critical. Real time power supply health detection helps prevent sudden system shutdown and provides hassle-free notifications should power delivery be insufficient. Additionally, LED messages on the board clearly indicate any relevant power issues in the event your system fails to boot.
Speed up your system with M.2
With two native PCI Express 2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds and up to 22110 NGFF. It is the perfect choice for an operating system drive, making your whole PC work that much faster.
Faster charging with USB Charger+
USB Charger+ charges USB devices up to three times (3X) faster than traditional USB sockets. Use it to juice up your smart devices even when the PC is asleep, hibernating or powered off — a brilliant convenience!
* Charging speed may vary by product.
