ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Gene RushKit



Meet the small yet powerful Maximus VIII Gene from ASUS. Is this mATX at it's best?

I think the µATX ones have always been a little cheaper. In fact I think the Ivy Bridge one cost €120 at the time making this one slightly expensive even? Although that may have been some time after the release.

I just remember when I got my current MB I looked at these and they cost a lot more than this 1, though obviously that was few years back


I like all 3 toms put up not much red but I have been wanting to go smaller matx route

Greenback it seems we have exactly the same kinda system in mind for our next PCs :P

I'm also looking to put together a nice MATX build for my next build ideally with an RoG Gene or similar. Having just built my family one I just love the form factor. Potentially gonna house it in an enthoo Evolv or something similar as I love the all Alu build

yep looked at that case and the node 804, but it comes down to, for a gaming rig would you see a big enough improvement for the Ł500-Ł600 needed to upgrade cpu, mb and ram, for that money you could just get a new 980ti or fury nearly even 2 980's or 390x's which obviously would be a big boost

Do we have a result on the red paint removal at all yet? I'm slapping one of these in an emerald green water build and although I could get away with it, the red just isn't welcome around here.

Price wise, this isn't much more dear than the previous counterparts Asus released as I had the V and VI, both were around Ł150 new upon release...

Though, I don't know what it is, not quite fond of the aesthetics this time around, though the features are there as always!
