To keep up with these fast processors, it comes with eight DDR4 DIMM slots for each processor. It offers twelve hot-swappable bays to house your SATA 3.5" drives. It also has space to house two 2.5" drives in the rear. You can further upgrade these bays with an optional SAS HBA card to provide it with a data transfer up to 12 Gb/s. In addition, it has a slot to support M.2 drives.
The RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 comes with one PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 slot and two PCIe Gen 3.0 x8 slots. In addition, you have a single PCIe Gen 3.0 x8 link that is designed for a separately sold dual-port 10G Gigabit Ethernet card. To quickly deliver ample storage for your network, it features two Gigabit ports as well as a management LAN port. For visuals, it comes outfitted with a VGA port and Aspeed AST2400 graphics with 32MB of VRAM. It includes a 770 W 80Plus power supply and supports an optional redundant power supply. It also has two USB 3.0 ports and a Q-Code 80 LED indicator.
Effective Cooling with Rack-Optimized Design
The four 80mm fans are adjusted manually, so you can have flexible control to meet different working environments. The RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 features air-duct technology and a 2U heat sink so it can work at high operating temperatures.
Mass Storage and Flexibility
The RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 is equipped with twelve SATA 3.5" drive bays. The hot-swappable design provides non-stop high availability, making short work of maintenance. It also offers an M.2 slot as well as two hot-swappable 2.5-inch SSD bays. You can install separately sold ASUS Pike II SAS 12 Gb/s HBA cards to enlarge the capacity, improve the performance, and strengthen the signaling of the RS520-E8-RS12-E V2.
The RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 has high expandability with 3+1 expansion ports in a configuration that means one PCI-E Gen3 x16 slot and two PCI-E Gen3 x8 slots.

This flexible expansion offers diverse applications in storage and networking to meet the demands of future expansion.
Reliable and Efficient
With ASUS Beat thermal chokes, Dr. MOS, and a 770W 80Plus Gold power supply, it delivers durability and up to 94% power efficiency. With an optional redundant power supply, the server keeps working even if one power supply requires maintenance, enabling uninterrupted operation. RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 has 12k solid capacitors that are able to withstand up to 12,000 hours of high ambient temperatures. These 12K capacitors also boast lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) for increased efficiency and minimal heat generation.
Diagnostic and Deployment
From the early hardware-awakening stages to the launch of the operating system and beyond, the RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 has a built-in Q-code/port 80 LED display panel so you can monitor the entire boot process. A brightly lit indicator on the rear lets you check the server's status instantly. The RS520-E8-RS12-E V2 also benefits from a tool-less rail kit design, easing deployment for systems administrators for increasing efficiency.
