    Default ASUS P9X79-E WS Motherboard Review

    Introduction The X79 based chipset motherboards have been out for quite some time now and with the recent launch of Intel Ivy-Bridge E chips, Intel didn’t do much at this time to improve the chipset. Some will say it’s not needed and some will advise against this and say go for the new release of the Z87 based chipset. While the Z87 base chipset did have great improvements for the newly release Haswell chips, we still see a strong stand from the X79 chipset. Today, we are going to take a look at a board from ASUS that has given the X79 chipset a revision which will push the limits and take full use on Ivy-B E. This is the new ASUS P9X79-E WS motherboard. What does WS stand for? Well this is designed to be a workstation motherboard for those serious video encoders or server and workload crunching. Of course, it makes for a great enthusiast’s motherboard too. * While this P9X79-E WS (workstation) motherboard is not as mainstream as some of the newer Z87 chipset based boards, ASUS has put together some unique touches to offer better performance and features. Let’s dive in a talk more about what this X79 chipset based board can do. *

    Great review! I can certainly appreciate that they at least made the board look presentable for those who like displaying their hardware, while keeping it functional and feature rich.

    Kenny did such an outstanding Job on this review that he received some praise from Asus. "Tell Kenny he did a fantastic job detailing all features I am more than impressed!"

    His high standard for detail and working to figure out every piece of software and board feature is a standard we all should look to match in our own future reviews. Thank you Kenny for the truly great job you did on this review. I know how much of yourself you put into this review and it is much appreciated. You have moved the Bar that much higher and brought all of PureOC with it. Thank you.

    I Love the review too.

    I was looking in more detail at the cpu support list. The rule seems to be: if it is skt 2011 it will work but i7-IB and xeon v2's need a later bios.

    Still a great support list:

    Core i7-3820 (3.6G,L3:10M,6C,HT,rev.M1)
