ASUS's original Intel X99 lineup was a huge hit with most of the enthusiast community, but with the introduction of Intel's Broadwell-E processor lineup, ASUS decided to kick things up a notch with a new line of motherboards. Following in the footsteps of the X99-Deluxe, the X99-Deluxe II provides the latest features supported by the X99 platform. Differences between the X99-Deluxe and X99-Deluxe II include two U.2 ports, onboard USB 3.1, a Thunderbolt 3 card, improved fan control, and RGB LEDs.

Most X99-refresh motherboards support U.2 and M.2, and the Deluxe-II can support up to two U.2 and two M.2 devices through included accessories. The X99-Deluxe II spices things up for workstation and enthusiasts with many RGB LEDs located in the PCI-E area, the audio area, and under the PCH heat sink. The motherboard also features ASUS's latest in fan technologies and software applications.

Let's take a close look at the X99-Deluxe II.
