The X99-DELUXE II LGA 2011-v3 ATX Motherboard from ASUS is designed to fit in cases that supports the ATX form factor. It support Intel Core i7 processors in the LGA 2011-v3 package and the Intel X99 chipset. This motherboard supports Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (32/64-bit), and 7 (32/64-bit).
The ATX form factor of the X99-DELUXE II has 8 x DIMM slots that can support up to 128GB of non-ECC and unbuffered DDR4 RAM with quad-channel memory architecture. Also supported are Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules, and the supported memory speeds are 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666 (OC), 2400 (OC), and 2133 MHz.
The X99-DELUXE II has a total of 8 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, 1 x SATA Express port that supports 2 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, 1 x M.2 Socket 3 that only supports PCIe SSDs, and 2 x U.2 ports that support PCIe 3.0 x4 NVM Express storage. Internal expansion is accomplished using PCIe slots, and the number of available slots depends on how many lanes your CPU has. A 40-lane CPU has 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots (runs at x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8, x8/x8/x8/x8), 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (runs at x1), 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (runs at x4), and 1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slot, while 28-lane CPUs have 3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots (runs at x16, x16/x8, x8/x8/x8), 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (runs at x4), and 1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slot.
For connecting USB peripherals, this motherboard is equipped with 4 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports, 6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports (4 at the back panel), 3 x USB 3.1 Type-A ports (all at the back panel), 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C port (back panel), and 4 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports (all at the back panel). The X99-DELUXE II also supports Thunderbolt 3 using ASUS' ThunderboltEX 3 add-on card, which provides users with bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gb/s. Thunderbolt 3 peripherals connect via the USB 3.1 Type-C port and the Thunderbolt 3 standard also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1, 60 Hz 4K/UHD displays via DisplayPort 1.2, and device charging up to 36W. Network connectivity is achieved using dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet jacks and using the Realtek ALC1150 codec, 8-channel DTS audio is supported using the 5 x 3.5mm audio jacks or 1 x S/PDIF jack.
The X99-DELUXE II does not contain integrated graphics, meaning that users will be free to install a dedicated GPU of their choice. Also supported is NVIDIA Quad-GPU SLI technology, NVIDIA 3-Way SLI technology, AMD Quad-GPU CrossFireX technology, and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX technology. Included with this motherboard is a 3T3R dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi antenna, an RGB LED extension cable, a CPU installation tool, a 2-way/3-way SLI bridge, 8 x SATA III 6 Gb/s cables, an Onboard M.2 x4 bracket, a Q-Connector, a Q-Shield, a support disc, a Fan Extension Card (3 x 4-pin fan out), a Fan Extension cable, a Fan Extension Card Screw Package, 3 x Thermistor cables, a Hyper M.2 x4 mini card, an M.2 screw package, a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable, and a ThunderboltEX 3 cable.
