Asus Maximus IV GENE-ZGEN3 Review
This ROG series (Republic of Gamers) Asus motherboard is almost identical with the Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z, replacing the old PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots with newer PCIe Gen. 3. There's support for both CrosfireX and SLI multi-GPU technologies, together with Lucid Virtu. The CPU is fed an amazing 250A by Asus' Extreme Engine Digi+ PWM 8-phase design, which should translate in higher stable overclocks.
