We review the ASUS Maximus V Extreme. There is a kind of people that feel enough is not enough, they want moar' and for exactly that kind of enthusiast end user ASUS creates ROG EXTREME products. This is a ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard, and that means extra enthusiast features alright, as for overclockers, here's where things start to get serious, the board is designed with a 12-phase Digi+ VRM, Subzero Sense, has voltage-measurement points and the ROG Connect technology (overclock the board via Bluetooth from their phone). And yes there's still more, ASUS throws in the OC Key as well, which creates an overlay on the active DVI monitor to adjust overclock settings in real-time without using additional software or hardware (it connects to the graphics card DVI port). The ASUS Maximus V Extreme just breathes overclock potential.
We review the ASUS Maximus V Formula.The Formula series equals style, features and highly tweakable motherboards -- all made with the ROG (Replublic of Gamers) backing it up. What defines the Formula the best however is that the heat sinks are in fact waterblocks, the Maximus V Formula can be used on both air and water as the Maximus V Formula eliminates heat with a unique aluminum-finned heatsink that combines an all-copper water channel and heatpipe in one.
We review the ASUS Maximus V GENE Z77 Motherboard. a smaller motherboard (mATX) yet a product that just oozes with dandy features and overclock potential. Get this -- we took a Core i7 3770K processor towards 5.0 GHz. Next to the tweaking possibilities this is a ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard, and means extra enthusiast features alright.
ASUS completed its range of Z68 products as well, and the one that rules them all is probably the board as tested today. The Republic of Gamers team applied their typical bunch of lovin' and sweetness to the motherboard, driving the feature count up and the tweaking performance to new heights. Yes, the Maximus IV Extreme-Z Intel Z68 motherboard has arrived at the Guru3D test grounds all the way up the highlands of Holland.
ASUS took the Z68 chipset and plastered it into a cute tiny motherboard. Then the ROG team did their magic on it and badabing-badaboom the Maximus IV Gene-Z we test today was born. Armed with the latest gadgets, some ROG lovin' and that Z68 chipset will most definitely surprise you.
We test the ASUS Maximus III Extreme. ASUS added a new P55 motherboard in the Republic of Gamers series motherboards, yes the Maximus III Extreme has arrived in our labs. The Maximus III Extreme is what I feel is one of the best tweaker / gamer P55 motherboards currently available in the market. Maximus III extreme will endear itself to PC enthusiasts and gamers. It supports a maximum of 16GB DDR3 memory, and has a stunning five PCIe (x16) slots: which supports single, dual, triple, and quad graphics card configurations, and supports both nVidias SLI and ATIs Crossfire for the same. To get it some additional PCIe bandwidth we spot an NF200 bridge chip. It also supports USB 3.0, SATA 6G, and on-board 10-channel audio. Oh and did I mention you can overclock through Bluetooth on your Smartphone already ?
Today we'll review the Maximus Gene III, for what I feel is one of the best tweaker / gamer P55 motherboards currently available in the market. The ROG addition motherboards lure the Guru3D.com audience, it's a perfect match -- it's that simple. This is what you, me and everybody else would like to see in our PCs alright. With the Maximum III Gene ASUS built a nearly perfect motherboard, the PCB is stuffed full with goodies.
