Default ASUS Maximus II GENE P45 mATX Motherboard Review

Hey everyone, we have just posted a review of the compact ASUS Maximus II GENE, which is a microATX Intel P45 motherboard that caters to the enthusiast community. Although a little late to the party, this is solid product for those who want to build a small high performance system and who aren't quite ready to make the jump over to the Core i7-powered Rampage II GENE.

If you have any comments and questions, you can post them here here, and I will do my best to answer them

Nice work MAC.

On the gaming benchmarks page, the section labelled Company of Heroes has a graph labeled World in Conflict. Sorry, I notice these kinds of things.

Judging by the feedback (ie: lack thereof), it's clear that ASUS released this board way too late

Yeah, I think you're correct there MAC. It's all about i7 and i5 now :(. Nonetheless this is a great mATX board!
