On the Chipset page we can adjust the memory and PCI Express settings (not all the PCI Express settings are displayed, however).

Onboard Devices Configuration page manages peripheral devices and additional controllers.

Power section features a page with monitoring data and fan rotation speed controls.

But this is not everything yet, as the latest ASUS mainboards feature a new section called Tools. It contains EZ Flash 2 utility that offers you very convenient graphics interface to quickly and easily reflash the mainboard BIOS.

Unfortunately, ASUS P5W64 WS Professional, just like ASUS P5W DH Deluxe, didn’t work with a USB flash drive during BIOS reflashing, although it recognized it correctly on start-up and could boot from it. Replacing a USB flash drive with a different one didn’t help. Looks like it is some kind of bug in all i975X based mainboards, because all other ASUS solutions for Intel and AMD platforms could work with USB flash just fine during BIOS saving and reflashing.

You can use ASUS O.C. Profile in the same section to save or load a pre-saved set of BIOS settings. If you want to use any external storage device for these profiles, then you will need to use a special utility with the interface very similar to EZ Flash 2.

Well, this is pretty much all we would like to say about ASUS P5W64 WS Professional mainboard at this time. Now we should check out its overclocking features.
