Asus released the DSEB-D16 server motherboard for 45nm Intel Xeon 5400/5200 series processors. The motherboard maker claims this motherboard has a power efficiency of over 90%.
The DSEB-D16/SAS optimizes power efficiency by up to 90%, enabling power savings of around 1.68KWh per day and 613.2KWh per year. This would provide a significant reduction of the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), especially for enterprises deploying numerous server systems to provide non-stop services, said the company.

The 16 FB-DIMM slots in the DSEB-D16/SAS provide up to 64GB memory capacity and are divided into two zones (8-DIMM per zone) to enable better airflow.

The optional Asustek patented MemCool Kit maximizes FB-DIMM performance by eliminating the potential risk of system memory throttling from over-temperature, and minimizes system integration effort of thermal and acoustic solutions, said Asustek.
The board also has two PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots, one PCI Express x8 slot and one PCI-X interface.
