When we first reviewed the Maximus IV it was prior to the well documented P67 problems. ASUS are back with the B3 revision, so we had to take a fresh look.

Out of curiosity, is there a purpose for benchmarking video performance? Will there ever be a difference using different motherboards using the same clocks and hardware? Just curious.

Good motherboard, i'm impressed. 5ghz @ 1.48v stable is good and i'm betting you could push it to 5.5ghz easy.

I'm looking forward to the Big Bang Marshall review now to see who comes out on top, the Maximus or the BBM.

how does it stack up against the ud7 and other higher end boards? only i thought the gd65 was a bit of a let down when you tested it

The main reason to benchmark video performance is just in case there is some bizarre problem with the PCI-e lanes. Now and again companies add a NF200 or similar to their board, so we run the test just to make sure all is well. It also makes sure that the power-phases are fine and there aren't any bottlenecks anywhere. Plus everyone wants to know the 3D Mark scores, even if they never change.

How does it compare to the BBM? *whistles innocently*

As for the UD7, there isn't much in it tbh. But we could either have graphs that take a week to scroll through, or let you do a tiny bit of legwork. Tabbed browsing has it's benefits

My name is Maximus IV Extreme, Motherboard to an over-clocked processor, foundation to a speedy system, and I will have 5GHz with this attempt or the next.
Bryan dude, your reviews crack me up

I do think its rather funny that they are labelling the "New B3 Revision" as if its a feature lol

Now mister Tiny Tom Logan, is the 1366 socket the way to go or the 1155 socket ?.

To be honest, I was all in favor for the 1366 especially since the first review but has somewhat changed after this review.

Kinda keen if you opion is changed after the new revision ?

I'm only a humble reviewer, but it depends what you've got now and how desperate you are to upgrade. 1366 will soon be phased out for 2011.

The 1155 is amazing though. Either in 2500K guise or 2600K if you need HT.

If you must have the absolute top-end, hold on for the 2011 revision in a few months time.
