ASUS Z87 ROG Motherboard Roundup: Enter Maximus VIASUS, like the other major motherboard manufacturers, has an extensive lineup of boards that now support Intel's 4th-generation Haswell processors and come packing the Z87 chipset. There are motherboards in ASUS' quiver that run the gamut from gaming boards to workstation boards to consumer-focused boards and beyond, but the company seems proudest of its Republic Of Gamers (ROG) line.

There are multiple Z87-based ROG boards in the series, and we took a look at three of them that represent a nice variety of form factors and features--the Maximus VI Impact, Maximus VI Gene, and the Maximus VI Formula--and also look at the work that the company has put into developing a robust gaming platform...

That mATX board is really perfect for a mATX gaming rig. With the new 295x2, some 16GB of ram bet you could build a really nice station. If only we could see better pricing with some of the components. Quality costs, I agree but still...

If what this report says is true I think I'd rather not have my system shut down instead of throttling. Restarting the system, choosing the OS from GRUB2, waiting for boot and restarting all the applications I had open is more time consuming that simply having the system slow down for a time. I am a fan of Asus but that Shutdown is a disappointment.
