Guru3D: Today's product review is not different, ASUS took the Z68 chipset and plastered it into a cute tiny motherboard. Then the ROG team did their magic on it and badabing-badaboom... the Maximus IV Gene-Z we test today was born.
We test the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z, a smaller motherboard (mATX) yet a product that just oozes with dandy features and overclock potential. Get this -- we took a Core i7 2600K processor towards 4.9 GHz and on any other motherboard we have tested, we've never passed 4.8 GHz.
That alone is testimony of what the cute and tiny Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboard is capable of.
