ASUS's Maximus VIII Impact performs quite well, and its small size doesn't mean it can't pack the same punch as its bigger brother, the Maximus VIII Extreme. Multi-core Enhancement does seem to be enabled by default. There are no performance pitfalls.

 

Some motherboard reviews put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies, and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
