Equally important to protection is proper labeling. For these reasons Benchmark Reviews is always critical of how companies pack their product; making sure the item well labeled, informative, and secure enough to make the punishing journey through shipping. As such, we will always spend some time in reviews on what most people will probably throw away without a second thought.
For their packaging ASUS has utilized a blue double carton box design for the P5E64 WS PRO that has become standard fair for their high-end motherboards, with an attractive outside shell that features a flip up panel to provide further details and specification. In addition to the well labeled box, ASUS has included a convenient built in handle allowing the entire package to be carried as if it were a briefcase.
As for accessories you won't find the P5E64 WS PRO lacking in any way compared to other high-end motherboards. ASUS has included a detachable POST code display unit with Power and Reset switch dubbed the "G.P. Diagnosis card", an exclusive accessory for the P5E64 WS Pro & and it's X48 counterpart the P5E64 WS Evolution (more on this in a bit).
