[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 4

post #31 of 7119
^thanks for the link on that preorder

So looks like it'll be about US $190-220 given the higher price tags overseas. Not too bad. Hopefully we'll be getting the awesome power phases like it's bigger z68 brother.

It will have Digi+ VRMs in a 8+4 phase design.

Extreme Engine Digi+ :
- 8 -phase CPU power design + 4 -phase iGPU power design
- 2 -phase Memory power design

I'll update the OP soon with more specs. I have family coming up from Kentucky this week so I been scrambling to clean up my cave.

Thanks, I guess that's not too bad. I hear SB isn't even that demanding and anything over 6 to 8 is kinda pointless.

Everything looks good, now the only question is when??

Well considering it's on preorder overseas, I'm thinking before the end of the month at most.

Not very thrilled about the price tag though...

And yeah, the P8P67-M Pro has I think only 5 phases and it OC's just fine on SB. But hey, you know this is OCN so the more phases = more people will be likely to buy it. Even if its an effective 4+1 phase design

I'm seriously hoping it's not $220.

I'm trying to make a stand and not spend more than $200 on a motherboard, when a $140-$160 can do the same job... but I was such a big fan of the Maximus III GENE

Same here, obviously cheaper is best but I hope it's not over $180 since the most expensive mATX z68 is $159.99. $180 for the color scheme, phases, quality, and ROG name is fair imo. I already have my 2500k coming in and I'm reusing my Mushkin Redline kit so at least I don't have to spend on anything else.

Yeah not worried about the phases at all since I trust Asus completely. Love my current Rampage III Gene and the Rampage III Extreme when I had it.

Man...end of the month?? Me want now. But I guess it's good that they're taking their time and ironing the bugs out. I hear DVI/HDMI issues coming from the MSI Z68 camp.

I check Newegg obsessively so I'll post a heads up when it comes out lol. Unless I'm sleeping, I'll probably be the first to order this board here. I don't know, never been this excited about a mobo before...

Same, I'm checking it constantly. I just hope I have enough money after my next paycheck to buy it. I may have to settle for a lesser i5 or i3 if I wanna get the board right away.

Or if I sell my AMD rig before I buy
