ASUS Rampage III Gene (X58 Express) Motherboard - The Box and What's Inside

After trying out the Rampage III Extreme a short while back, today we see if its little brother is worthy of the name.

Package and Contents

 

My first thought upon looking at the box the Rampage III Gene was that it was just a chopped off version of the Rampage III Extreme, or any other ROG box for that matter. However, while there are similarities, there are also some differences.

After we noted the size of the box, we went to take a look at the board through what we thought was going to be a clear plastic window under the front flap. When we lifted the flap we did not get a look at the RIIIG, but instead saw a listing of features.

Flipping around to the back of the box returned us to a box that looks much like the RIIIE. You get a few features on the side and a specifications list.

Inside the is the now familiar second box for the motherboard. This replaces the typical anti-static bag that is more commonly used. Unlike other boards in the ROG line, the accessories are stored in a tray below instead of a removable box.

Despite not being in a removable box, the loot sent out with the RIIIG is still top notch.
