Summary: Everything went smoothly with the installation and I've had no issue since. I'm not sure the Virtu GPU "visualization" does much and the software from Lucid seems buggy but that's a minor point. I've had no problems with component compatibility nor any issue with drivers for the integrated peripherals. I'm very happy with this motherboard.
Summary: Now, in fairness, I originally ordered this board as an open box special from another site. However, the board wouldn't boot with RAM in dual channel mode. Looking up the error code, this isn't unheard of, so I'm going 4 stars instead of 5. Still, I immediately placed an order for a new board, this time from Amazon, and couldn't be happier. Feature loaded in a small form factor and stable as a rock at 4.8.

Summary: Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z is a new addition to Republic of Gamers (ROG) line up of motherboards, supported by latest second generation Core i processors with memory and PCI controllers that are incorporated to support 2-channel 4DIMM DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. Also, the motherboard is equipped with Intel's Smart Response Technology to increase the overall performance.
Summary: Well well well... This is a great motherboard still using it havent had any problems for now (2 month since purchase). It is a powerful motherboard but there are better out there for around the same price. I had previously bought the Asus P8p67 which customers had a 50/50 chance of getting a faulty. However if your looking to buy a motherboard I would wait around for the Asus P9X79 as this is going to be awesome.
