Agreed the chip to do would be justified on cost.

I just got my Maximus 6 Gene through the door yesterday. This review made me nervous, although the pricing is obviously a big factor to why the review was so bad for the Extreme. A mobo must be pretty sick to be worth £300+

I have one of their Maximus IV Gene boards and it was priced right and performs admirably well. Oh well, they can't all be hits I suppose.
Have you OC'ed the Gene yet? I have one too, with a 4770K, and when I use the 4-way Optimisation thing it will happily sit at 4.6Ghz running OCCT at around 88C but it sets the voltage to 1.3v - which everyone seems to think makes it run too hot. Just wondering if you've had any similar experiences? Thanks.

This is merely a few mistakes within this article in all it is a very short sighted and ill informed review end of!!!

Those considering M6G its a powerhouse so great choice!!
Ohdear, Asus employees creating forum accounts to rage now?!
