ASUS TS700-E8-RS8 Barebones Workstation Review

BIOS

 

The BIOS for this workstation is typical so we will only show key BIOS screens.

This is the main BIOS screen you see when you first enter the BIOS.

The Z10PE-D16 does allow for overclocking which is simple to do. Simply set the AI Overclock Tuner to "manual" and adjust the BCLK to 104, which is about max for Xeon CPUs used on this board.

Remote Management

To get remote access up and running, enter the BIOS and head over to the server management tab. Move on down to the BMC LAN configuration tab. This will show the IP address used for remote access.

 

Enter this IP address into your browser and you will see the login page. Log in using:

 

Username: admin

Password: admin

 

As a best practice, Administrative users should change factory default Username/Password logins before connecting any new server to their network. The rest of the screens are typical for ASUS remote access so we will just show the screens here.
