ASUS use their advanced UEFI bios on the X99 Deluxe 2 and split it into two modes. EZ and Advanced. In the first we get all the key features in one screen, allowing us to quickly and easily configure the board to our needs. Fore more hands on users we can move to advanced mode and really take control of the system. Added to this are various user friendly features such as the ability to Secure Erase drives, update the BIOS from the net, etc.


As far as software goes, most of our time is spent in AISuite. This tool allows us to monitor, maintain and tweak our board as required. ASUS also provide a little app for quick profile switching, LED control software, a panel to add macro functionality to any keyboard, decent audio panel and LAN software which allows us to optimise our connection.

ASUS X99 Deluxe II Review – Conclusion

The X99 Deluxe II is one of those products where we receive it and upon unboxing are hit with two feelings. One… this is pretty damn cool. Look at the amount of features! And two… where do you even start as a reviewer! Seriously though, its a nice position to be in.

As far as build quality of the X99 Deluxe II goes, we have no complaints. Quality components are used across the PCB and ASUS have gone the extra mile in so many areas to enhance this board over many others, from the high quality PCIe slots and audio enhancements to revised CPU socket. Add to that they have also had customer experience very much in mind with various tools and connectors that are designed to make installation easy.

In terms of design, all good. Slot layout is ideal, plenty of fan connectors, a huge amount of back panel connectors and more drive options than most users would ever need. It is clear to see from the design that ASUS were determined to fit in everything they could. Some manufacturers would have been satisfied with providing M.2 by PCIe card (Which is included here) but ASUS manage to also include a native connector and design a vertical attachment to accommodate it.

Looking to performance, again great. Across the suite of tests the X99 Deluxe II managed to squeeze extra performance from our components. This of course helps it to further enhance performance over the Z170 mainstream platform. Really though, the board is designed to shine most with Intels upcoming CPUs and we can’t wait to see what ASUS do with them.

    I ordered mine and then read a review on the Rampage Extreme V V10 I think they are close but Deluxe II is in second place
