ASUS Maximus V Gene Intel Z77 Express LGA 1155

Intel Z77 Express Chipset »

Introduction



Over the past several weeks we've taken a look at a couple of new products for Intel's Z77 Express platform, launched not long ago. The past two products we've looked at from Gigabyte and ECS each had their own spin on the features they provided, each having its own flavor that lets each stand out. ASUS has several Intel Z77 Express products on the market as well, and the first we will be taking a look at is straight out of ASUS's own "ROG" line of products, and currently the flagship, the ASUS Maximus V Gene. Although this board fits within the mATX form factor, don't let its small size fool you, this is one top-tier product, meant to clock the crap out of your Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs.
