The Gene is a great board. VRM's just run hot with an overclock, so keep them cooled.
Since when maximus 4 is considered lowend?
I don't what you mean exactly but I bought most of my stuff is either used, recertified or open box because I don't have the luxury or resources to get everything at retail price so I found ways on how to get things that I want and in this case its either used or open box etc...
For sure there are risks involved but I am experienced enough to sort out those
some people might agree, some don't. In the end Im the one who's buying, using and enjoying the stuff that I bought
