Asus sabertooth z77 vs asus maximus v GENE
Which is better (Asus sabertooth z77 or asus maximus v GENE) for i7 3770k in gaming , verclocking and quality ?

I'd say both are top notch boards. Only real difference is one is atx and the other is matx. You can't go wrong with either. :thumb:

Gene has 2 slots

i'd say you need to do some reading BEFORE buying anything if you don't know the difference between a matx and a atx mobo and plan to run a 4way SLI/Crossfire setup
no pun intended

overclock stability will be more CPU dependant than anything UNLESS you plan to do extreme overclokcing
