Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z vs Asus Maximus V Gene

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm torn, I can get IV ExtremeZ right now for about 130 used but in great condition and pair it with a 2500k or 2600k OR should I go with a V Gene with 3550k? I like to OC play games, dual boot etc...

If it's going in your sig rig then I'd go for the Extreme-Z because the Gene V will look really small in the XL.

My sig rig is gone, I'm starting fresh. I think since I'm able to get the IV Extreme-V so cheap that I might as well just go with it. I can put a 3770k in there if I wanted to as well.

The only thing is that it's not new lol

I went with the Maximus Iv Extreme-z but now I'm thinking I should go down to the V Gene.
