Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Z68 Motherboard Review

3 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Design wise, the Gene-Z is a ROG board and because of that, I simply love it, and with a lot of mods and fans on the market utilising red, it’s a really strong colour scheme to use if you’re wanting to colour coordinate your system build.

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z LGA1155

16 September 2011
  • Summary: We cannot say enough how impressed we are with the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z. When it comes to the BIOS, although we feel that the pages are far too numerous, we wouldn't want to see a single option removed, and the ones we'd like to see added hardly have any effect on usability or performance.
  • Pros: Full-size board features and capability packed into a much smaller footprint, Excellent overclocking options, Mature BIOS ensures easy setup for near every configuration, Low power consumption, Lucid Virtu support, Fantastic accessory package., Near the best "Out-of-the-Box" performance we've see...
  • Cons: Our first "High-End" board without a USB 3.0 front panel device., Slot spacing not ideal for multi-GPU configurations, Forced overclock with "stock" ASUS settings, Small size may leave it overlooked by many, BIOS has too many pages, Voltage read points need to be socketed.

Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Motherboard

Ninja Lane
2 September 2011
  • Summary: We had a great time using the Maximus IV Gene-Z and aside from its smaller stature and limited expandability it responded well in our tests and seemed like a solid gaming platform. We say gaming over enthusiast mostly due to the form factor but things like the lack of an LN2 switch and voltage probe...
  • Pros: Small Form Factor, Dual GPU support, factory Turbo Overclock, Virtu Feature that Works, Red and Black Color Scheme, Lots of ROG Features
  • Cons: Not all MicroATX cases support high end boards, Bluetooth not included

Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z Review

18 July 2011
  • Conclusion: We’ve been genuinely impressed by the Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z ,as it’s the first LGA1155 board we’ve seen to really stand out in terms of stock speed performance. Some may point to the Z68 chipset as the reason, but the previous Z68 boards we’ve seen haven’t performed any differently to their P67...

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z review

The Guru of 3D
13 July 2011
  • Summary: Nice, very nice... One of the more powerful Intel chipsets with the most powerful Intel processor series all have been merged onto a small 24x24cm mATX motherboard (this form factor fits perfectly in any chassis of course). The combination of the two together with the ROG GENE build are incredible.

Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z Motherboard Review

23 January 2012
  • Summary: The Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z motherboard is priced at Rs.13,110 which is a grand more than the P8Z68-V Pro motherboard from the same company. We understand it’s designed for enthusiasts and overclockers but there’s no straying away from the fact that it is quite expensive for a micro-ATX motherboard.

Expert Review

24 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z is possibly the best micro-ATX Z68 board out there. Of course, such a bounty of features, quality, and performance normally doesn't come cheap. ROG products cater to the elite, so it costs about $170.

  • Excerpt: Aristotle wrote that " Change in all things is sweet" and change is something that the Maximus IV knows very well. Normally the ASUS range consists of an Extreme, a Formula and a Gene variant of the same basic design.
