Default Asus Maximus II Gene

Since the introduction of Intel's new Core i7 CPU's, we were all amazed at its performance it offered us. At the same time we were all shocked at the cost it would cost us to upgrade to this newer standard, ranging anywhere from 800-1200 USD at a minimum. With the cost of this new CPU standard in mind, lot of people decided to hold on to there Intel socket 775 platforms, which still proven to be a good solid platform for gaming and anything we saw fit for the use of our computers with out the large expense of moving to a entirely new CPU socket and motherboards, including memory.

With all of this in mind, it is good to see manufacturers like ASUS still working hard on improving the Intel socket 775 CPU's. Like its bigger brother the ASUS Rampage II GENE motherboard, the Asus Maximus II GENE motherboard is a micro ATX form factor, but with a couple of difference's, the Maximus II GENE motherboard supports the Intel socket 775 CPU's, dual channel DDR2 memory, and it uses the P45 Eaglelake chipset, paired up with a ICH10R south bridge, with a few extra's added we seen with the Rampage II GENE motherboard.
