Z9PE-D16/2L

ASUS Z9PE-D16 / 2L SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Innovative Technologies Deliver Easy Expandability, Complete Storage and High Power Efficiency

The ASUS Z9PE-D16/2L serverboard provides an ideal foundation for reliable performance and future upgrades. Through innovative ASUS design, it offers high power efficiency of up to 90%, dual Intel® LAN ports with great virtualization support, and high I/O expandability. Users also obtain high manageability via the latest ASMB6, making this an ideal general purpose host server, AP server, mail server, and storage server.

Z9PE-D16/2L

Innovative Technologies Deliver Easy Expandability, Complete Storage and High Power Efficiency

Complete Storage Support

The Z9PE-D16/2L boasts multiple SAS/SATA implementation, from Intel® AHCI to ASUS PIKE, supporting the latest SATA/SAS 6Gbps technology. While ASUS optional PIKE provides slim-sized and flexible storage options, direct SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved via a unique slot — without sacrificing expansion capability. ASUS PIKE further provides customers with multiple I/O options and RAID functionality, and various storage expansion choices for different applications.



Green and Highly Power Efficient

Z9PE-D16/2L voltage regulation manages up to 90% peak power efficiency, with 88%+ during heavy CPU loading. This ensures high power efficiency for the entire system to help customers save operating costs.



Built-In BMC Engine, KVM-over-IP Enabled by ASMB6 Module for Easy Troubleshooting

The ASMB6-iKVM enables dashboard system health monitoring, remote power on/off and control, virtual media over LAN, and management LAN fail-over support. In addition, the ASMB6 function is based on BIOS-level access, so even if the server operating system is down or offline, the KVM module can still provide round-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnosis through a user-friendly web-based graphical interface through all major browsers.

Z9PE-D16/2L
Cutting-Edge Architecture

The Z9PE-D16/2L supports the latest Intel® E5-2600 series processors (Sandy Bridge-EP). Through ASUS design and research expertise, it has been adapted to support E5-2600 V2 processors (Ivy Bridge-EP) to protect customer investment. Featuring 16-DIMM slots, it can take up to 512GB of DDR3 1600/1333/1066 RDIMM, and DDR3 1333/1066 UDIMM/LRDIMM memory, providing high computing capability. Additionally, with PCI Express 3.0 support, the Z9PE-D16/2L enables higher bandwidth to meet various demanding application requirements.



Server-Class Dual LAN Connection

The new serverboard ships with the industry’s first fully integrated Intel® I350 dual-port Ethernet controller, which supports energy efficient Ethernet and DMA coalescing and offers reliable and fast network connections. With VT-d technology and new VMDq queuing, the Z9PE-D16/2L easily manages virtualization applications while maintaining superior performance.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks, but with a few issues

Pros: - Integrated KVM-over-IP (iKVM) is great and does not require any extra purchases like iDRAC. Requires Java in your browser for the console. Recording feature of iKVM to record a video of the startup and all those POST screens is nice for catching everything that flies by.
- Lots of memory slots (= lots of VMs!)
- Solid build quality
- Easy to assemble to build your own server
- Lots of SATA ports and PIKE option for RAID 0/1/10

Cons: - USB keyboard from our Trendnet TK-803R KVM does not work, which is a pain when trying to access in the rack. Need to connect a separate USB keyboard.
- Instability with VMWare ESXi 5.5 that has yet to be identified. Server will run for a few weeks and then it locks up and becomes unresponsive to VMware client. The console freezes when trying to view the logs and lots of SCSI command errors in the kernel logs possibly related to VMWare and X2APIC support and IRQ remapping. Still investigating and very hard to reproduce the issue.
- No COM port bracket in the box or COM port on the back panel I/O. Supported on the motherboard, but you need to supply your own bracket. And yes, serial ports still rule the server room, for example for serial console logging, switch configuration and UPS monitoring. Would be great if they put a COM port above the VGA port on the back panel.

Other Thoughts: - Be aware this is a dual CPU and requires two EPS 12 volt 8-pin connectors from the PSU. These are generally only on server grade or high-end PSUs.
- Purchased a PIKE 2008 add-on card and used the onboard connectors for RAID 1 array. Works well and all the RAID features you would expect from RAID 1/0/10 (not a RAID 5 solution).
- Used the onboard USB female connector for a memory stick with VMware ESXi. It works great, just set the scratch directory location in VMware to somewhere on your hard drive. It will not store logs on the USB stick.
- Once had to reset the iKVM using ipmitool from a Linux system. ipmitool mc reset warm.

Pros: Lots of RAM slots, dual CPU, dual NICs,

1 out of 5 eggsAn unstable server board

Pros: I thought it can be reliable. But.....it is not. Thanks gd, my the other Asus's MB same as this one is still working.

Cons: This MB stops working after one year. I sent it back to ASUS for replacement but they returned it back and said it was nothing wrong. I connected it again with brand new CPU and Power Supply but i still got no luck. Need to send it back again. :(. Call Asus for 30 minutes and no one pick up the phone. After one hour, someone picked it up. but he was rude and knew nothing about the MB. Asus service sucks. I am using Asus for many years but now I think it is time for me to move on.

Other Thoughts: Asus is not for server kind of devices.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS Z9PE-D16

Pros: Dual Xeon CPU's up to 512 GB of ECC Registered Ram, 256 per CPU, awesome board. Dedicated CPU for PCI-e slots 3 & 5. Makes a great Graphics station at half the price of a professional system.

Cons: If you are going to use the new Xeon E5-2600 series v2 Ivy bridge CPU's with this board, you need to get the updated BIOS chip from the ASUS e-store first. The new IVY bridge CPU's are newer than the BIOS was made to support. Should be fine if using Sandy bridge, but without the updated BIOS chip, you don't even get Video out to Flash the BIOS, so you need to order the chip. It is only $14. OK, fine, I wish there was some mention of this on the ad so I could have got it at the same time I ordered the board. Could have saved myself a week, lots of research and a few grey hairs. Read the Specs carefully. No on-board Audio and only PCI-e slots. No USB-3.0 native support. But easily solved with add-in boards.

Other Thoughts: ASUS customer support was great, I love ASUS and I am sorry for anyone who has had a bad experience with them.

1 out of 5 eggsmixed feelings review

Pros: Pros:
- expandable
- works well with raid cards
- memory capacity is nice and stable
- easy to read debug LED (helps with figuring out some hangs)

Cons: - Several Intel errata issues that HAVE NOT been fixed
a. Can cause iKVM issues that others have
b. Causes reporting errors on sensors
c. Will cause your system to halt, hang or function abnormally
d. Definitely can cause data loss
e. Can cause hardware damage to motherboard components
f. Might explain some "DOA" cases, as when errata is not fixed it causes abnormal behavior (Including constant resets)

- Limited support on these boards, only one issue was fixed since 6 months ago
- UEFI compliance is less than what it used to be as of the last update. Incorrect digital signatures in firmware will cause Microsoft OS installations to not function as intended.

Other Thoughts: Intel publishes errata on these boards on a regular basis, ASUS should be on top of this.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None board DOA, system powers on, runs for 30 seconds and then resets, nothing ever posts, have tried every type of ram possible, ecc, non-ecc registered non registered etc. tried 5 different CPUs, took board out of case, Can't ascertain problem.

Cons: Dead on arrival.

Other Thoughts: Wish this board would have worked out, this is the second asus board i've had problems with in a week. I previously have used many asus boards and never had an issue. Two in a week concerns me, one desktop one server...
Anyways, not sure what board to choose to replace it.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Difficult to ascertain - ASUS Live Chat Support says the motherboard is dead.

Cons: DOA - Nothing is connected except the power supply (24+8+8), one CPU (E5-2665) in CPU1, CPU fan and one ECC/Registered 1600 DIMM in A1. CATT LED comes on (fatal or catastrophic error) and Q-Code LED doesn't move from 00. I've tried a bunch of different DIMMS (registered and not, ECC and not, 1333 and 1666), 2 processors and resetting the CMOS, all to no avail.

3 out of 5 eggsMobo Review

Pros: Nice board

Cons: This is not a workstation board, even though ASUS lists windows 7 drivers on their page.

Also, the IO shield is junk... super flimsey and the IO shield is not heavy duty like you would get from Intel.

Other Thoughts: Even though there are several video ports here... why is their NO SLI support on the motherboard?

If it offered SLI... 4 eggs.. 5 if they upgrade the IO shield quality.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your feedback on this motherboard. The Z9PE-D16/2L is targeted at server use. If you intend to for a workstation usage, please have a look at our Z9PE-D8 WS (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z9PED8_WS/#overview), which can support 4-way SLI. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact me below. Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board but ipmi module has problems

Pros: Lots of memory slots, solid running so far, remote power cycle and managment when it's running

Cons: management modules web interface hangs up periodically and need manual (on-site) intervention to reboot it
Asus tech support unknowledgeable about the product

Other Thoughts: Can SSH into the ipmi module but the web access is hung. Very limited abilities when SSHed in and can't restart webserver or reboot module. This has happened a few times already.
