Yes, there's no doubt this box is capable of a few more points.....But would the real world experience even be noticable ? [NO]
 
Now, I can comfortly run this thing for many many years to come. Low voltages , low temperature equals longevity [YES]

Guys, i need your input.

Just bought my second ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z Gen.3 and I am a bit confused, as the socket is Foxconn, not Lotes.
As far as i know ALL this motherboards come with Lotes socket, on all official pics it is Lotes socket too.

Anybody has the ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z Gen.3 with Foxconn socket?

I'm running at 4.6ghz with Dark Knight at stock 1.344v with good temps. I like having full power at moments notice so I don't care for the cpu throttling

I mean in regards to lowering the clock speed and voltage during low/idle usage

Hmmmmmmm. *scratches head*

Any mobo (bios) , worth a grain of salt, will manage the CPU's performance and stands ready
to jump to attention in a matter of nano seconds. In the flow of the thread , guess i'm trying to understand exactly what ya mean.

Are you insinuating low voltage settings throttle the overall performance of the CPU ?
