    MAXIMUS VI GENE

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    I really liked testing the Maximus VI Gene, specifically the attention to detail with the POST status LEDs on board, DirectKey, UEFI options and even the ability to make the board 'dark' if you wanted. Overclocking was solid and easy, the audio perfect for gaming and the PCIE Combo II add on card means that you could add WIFI and Bluetooth to the board for an additional ~$30. There is a lot to be said for the software bundles that come with motherboards and in the case of the ASUS, The GameFirst II and RAMDISK applications had some simple but really effective tweaks and configuration options that I could really see myself using beyond novelty value. more

    Motherboards
    RAMPAGE IV BLACK EDITION

    apc recommended

    As expected at this price, both the speedy 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connection options are included. Integrated audio is also exemplary, using Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC in conjunction with EMF shielding and a 60ohm headphone amp. Listening test over high-end Audio Technica headphones proved it to be a very capable audio solution, easily on par with mid-range discrete sound cards.

    Graphics Cards
    ROG MARS760-4GD5

    atomic hotaward

    The card itself is a work of art, differing in design from the DCUII coolers that we are used to. The shroud is made of metal, with a soft-touch rubberised coating, accentuated by anodised red aluminium backplate and a glowing red MARS logo, designed to be visible through a case window (There is still a modicum of bragging rights associated with the product.)
