Asus Maximus V Gene Review

We've loved Asus' previous Gene boards, but will the Gene V continue the trend?

Oh yes we do need the "dark" shots!!

small mistake: "We were pleased then to see the Gene pull out a little bit of a margin over the reference Asus board and the Gigabyte Z77-UD5H that we tested it alongside in our image editing test."

Should be "Intel" reference board.

Anyway thanks for the review.

Word. That's sexy.

I'd get on board with Intel releasing a ROG m-ITX series. Toss in a flexi pci-e adapter so the video card doesn't have to be out at 90 degrees and I'll never even look at another brand. I'd like to build a PC where the video card determines the size of the case, over anything else.

Am I the only one that's a little disappointed by the review? Too much emphasis on aesthetics and not enough technical info in my opinion.

Where are the power consumption measurements?

Given the number and positioning of expansion slots available, just how good is the on-board sound? Does it really make a decent sound card unnecessary? (if you go SLI/Crossfire there's really no space for anything else)

No mention of which Intel NIC is there. This may be a deal-breaker for people intending to play with ESXi. It would have been nice to know if (at the time of writing the review, of course) the on-board LAN is supported by ESXi 5. It's easy enough to test it: just boot from the installation disc, and if it lets you choose where to install it, it works (that is, the NIC is supported). As I said above, sacrificing a slot for an ethernet card so people can test things may prove too much, and a full-ATX board (even with an equally unsupported NIC) is a better option.

ESXi on a ROG board? Really?

I think there are more practical options out there...

82574 is supported directly by ESXI, 82579 is supported through injecting a driver in the installation image :

And to be more exact, it is Intel WG82579V according to this czech review, which contains detailed shots of all chips on board.

Asus make a big play of the sound circuitry of this M/B on their website. A little disappointing that Custom PC / Bit-tech review failed to audition the sound. Does it produce a sound quality akin to the Xonar DS or better? If it does it makes this M/B particularly good value.
