Multiple Ultra-Efficient Heat Sinks

Designed for the powerful Intel Xeon scalable processor with up to 28 cores, the ASUS WS C422 Sage/10G server motherboard features a capable thermal design to ensure maximum performance with no CPU throttling.

Consisting of an ultra-efficient VRM heatsink with a metal fin-array design that maximizes surface area for heat dissipation, plus two additional heat sinks and a connecting heat pipe to further increase cooling performance, this innovative thermal design ensures the WS C422 Sage/10G motherboard is always ready to handle any task, no matter how demanding.

With its dual PLX chips that increase the number of available PCIe lanes to enable 4-way GPU configurations, every WS C422 Sage/10G server motherboard features a robust thermal solution to dissipate the heat that comes with routing so much high-speed traffic. An additional heat-sink array and heat pipe cover the PLX chips and are positioned in the path of maximum airflow within the chassis, reducing PLX temperatures by up to 20C° to ensure optimal cooling and system stability.

SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
