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...

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

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 ...

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...

  • Conclusion: Asus Maximus to nazwa wiele mówiąca fanom najlepszych pecetowych podzespołów i ekstremalnego overclockingu. Nawet w naszej redakcji płyty te stanowią podstawę części platform testowych. Niestety pierwsza wersja Maximusa już dawno została wycofana z rynku.
  • Pros: Bardzo dużo złącz, Doskonała jakość wykonania, Bardzo rozbudowany BIOS, Przemyślane rozwiązania, Dobry dźwięk
  • Cons: Format Micro-ATX mniej użyteczny przy konstrukcjach dla entuzjastów, Pewne uwstecznienia w stosunku do pierwszej wersji Maximusa

  • Conclusion: Wer ein kleines Socket 775 Mainboard mit guter Ausstattung und Optik sucht, kann das Maximus II Gene sicherlich in die engere Auswahl miteinbeziehen. Ein gutes Layout und zahlreiche Features inklusive einer für Spieler sehr interessanten Audiolösung zeichnen es aus. Abstriche hingegen muss man bzgl.
  • Cons: + Sound, + Layout, + Performance, - Übertaktbarkeit hinsichtlich des FSBs

DigiWorld
5 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Již od první chvíle jsme si desku oblíbili. Přesně takovouto trh potřeboval, malé rozměry, extrémní možnosti taktování, vysoký výkon a poměrně odpovídající cena (o té si povíme za okamžik). V oblasti přetaktování si vede excelentně a její OC potenciál je ohromný.
