ASUS today introduced the WS X299 Pro SE motherboard, a variant of the recently announced WS X299 Pro. The new Pro SE comes with an ASUS ASMB9-iKVM IPMI 2.0 compliant remote management chip, which is physically an ASPEED AST2500, but with custom firmware and software by ASUS. This chip provides a host of remote-management features, including iKVM, remote BIOS update, BSOD screen capture, and screen video recording, remote data wipe, etc., all adding to the board's enterprise credentials. The chip is tucked away underneath the secondary VRM heatsink next to the expansion slot area of the motherboard, and dissipates its heat to this heatsink via a thermal pad. The board is otherwise identical to the WS X299 Pro. We expect the WS X299 Pro SE to sell at a premium over the WS X299 Pro.

Where the hell did the real heatsink fins like on older WS boards go? Shouldn't they be function>form for WS.

That heatsink is a step in wrong direction sadly. Seems like Asus decided to cheapskate on that area as well.

We are in the era of the Aesthetic Heatsink Plague... Bring back the good old heatsinks with a lot of fins, and heatpipes, those look awesome and properly perform their function as an heatsink...

Even supermicro follows this trend with gamer oriented stuff.

Even just one single generation ago the WS board had a nice finned heatsink. I had hoped to swap to the X299 version of my X99M WS, but it looks like that wont be happening. Might stick it out and see what else comes out for the C621 stuff

One generation ago...



Although even if this has just flashy heatsinks I can't argue with overclocking two xeon platinums...hmmm

If you look closely you can see the heatsinks under the cover. For both the board of the news (for the cpu vrm), and this one. The fins and the heatpipes are still there, they just put a cover on it. (The perks of caring for aesthetic is that you can spot this kind of small details).

They are still not as large and airflow will not be as good.

Fair enough. They still looks better than what you might find on some gygabyte Workstation/server motherboard who don't have heatsink at all, or even supermicron, Z workstation, Dell precision who are sold with a cheap, light heatsink.

Those don't get overclocked and are designed to have constant airflow across

I guess I just don't understand what it means to be a maximizer.
