ASUS' Maximus to the max

Solid well covered review

By Steve Dougherty from Feb 13, 2008 @ 17:14 CST

Undeniably one of the best of the bunch when it comes to DDR3 based X38 motherboards; ASUS' ROG Series Maximus Extreme. The lads over at PCStats have had this gem in their hot little hands recently and they take a good look at its characteristics to see if the high price tag is warranted.

Intel has provided a monster overclocking platform this last year, and its P35 Express and X38 Express platforms are looking like some of the best ever released. Asus and overclocking go together like cookies and milk so we definitely had some high hopes with the Maximus Extreme motherboard.
