Great board, some issues

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

Pros: We own three of these, and two of them have been working perfectly in a high-demand environment for more than a year, with great results. Solid, high-performing board with good features.

Cons: USB 3 would be handy but not urgently needed in a server board. 10GbE would also be nice, and would save a good $350 per system for users who need it. Asus could do better with documentation & labeling, but that's an issue with everyone. One board of our three recently came DOA. Still trying to get it exchanged, 1.5 weeks after delivery.

Overall Review: Recommended. A good system builder can use this as the basis of a good workstation or server, and the reliability of boards that aren't DOA is enough to warrant continued purchases of this board in spite of the issues.
