Press release, March 4; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 4 March 2008]

Asustek has released the Z7S WS workstation motherboard, equipped with dual 771 sockets. The board utilizes the latest Intel 5400 chipset and also supports fully buffered DDR2 800MHz dual-channel memory, dual PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots; and comes in the compact CEB form factor.

The Z7S's particular heat-pipe design is made to increase durability, life spans and enhance thermal capacity. It also provides highly efficient operation with less heat than traditional heat sink designs, according to the company.

The optional Asustek Patented MemCool Kit maximizes FB-DIMM performance by eliminating the potential risk of system memory throttling from over-temperature; as well as minimizing effort for SIs targeting thermal and acoustic solutions, pointed out the company
