ASUS Maximus II Gene micro-ATX motherboard review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: When we reviewed ASUS' Rampage II Gene micro-ATX motherboard a while back, we did so with a real sense of excitement - If we're honest we weren't expecting Intel's high-end X58 chipset to make it to this form factor, let alone with all of its features and functionality intact, and the fact that ASUS...

  • Summary: Although the Core i7 and X58 combo is a proven performance leader, there are still plenty of Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad CPUs out there in the wild.  The Core 2 is still a very capable processor with many models costing less than half the price the cheapest Core i7 processor, the Core i7 920.

Benchmark Reviews
22 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The external packaging of the Maximus II GENE is top-notch. I've already praised the WOW factor that you get when you first open it up. The PETE shell that covers the top tray allows a full view of the finely detailed board, as soon as you lift the lid.
  • Cons: No foolproof instructions for running 500MHz FSB in the manual, Some SATA connectors can be blocked by chassis, Unnecessary PATA connector and associated support chips

  • Conclusion: As I mentioned earlier it is good to see that a manufacturer is still improving on an all ready proven chipset. This motherboard is geared for those who still wanting to keep there existing socket 775 Intel CPU’s, or for those who are looking to upgrade there current systems but cannot afford the...

ASUS Maximus II Gene Motherboard

ChannelPro Network
1 June 2009
  • Summary: The fact of the matter is that the P45 chipset is delegated to the mainstream and value market right now. If you want the fastest CPU and best platform that is the Intel Core i7 and X58 combination as the AMD Phenom IIs is simply no CPU match speed-wise to the Intel Core i7 platform.

Hardware Canucks
13 March 2010
  • Conclusion: When we first heard about the Maximus II GENE we loved the concept, since there aren't exactly an abundance of enthusiast microATX LGA775 motherboards on the market. In fact, there is only one to our knowledge, the DFI Lanparty JR P45-T2RS that we reviewed way back in October.
  • Pros: - Compact dimensions., - Excellent layout given the mATX form factor., - Solid overclocking capabilities., - Terrific BIOS., - Abundance of temperature & voltage readouts., - Impressive features list., - CrossFireX support., - Worthwhile alternative to full-sized ATX motherboards.
  • Cons: - Slightly immature BIOS limits, overclocking., - Software suite needs to be revitalized a bit., - Passive chipset cooler can run a little toasty., - Some people may need more SATA & USB ports., - It's not available in the retail channel yet., - Perhaps might have been a little more relevant 4-6 ...

ASUS Maximus II GENE mATX Motherboard

Overclock3D
29 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The ASUS Maximus II GENE may be small, but it certainly packs a punch. Although it's been almost a year since we last reviewed a Socket 775 motherboard here on Overclock3D, the return to this old favourite was certainly a pleasant one and showed that it is still is a very capable platform when...
  • Pros: All the features of an ATX motherboard (and more)., Layout not too cramped. Plenty of room for large coolers., Extremely capable at overclocking., On-board X-Fi sound., Usual ASUS RoG attention to detail in the looks and packaging., Fully featured BIOS., LGA775 platform for those who aren'...
  • Cons: Absolutely nothing.
