post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 

Asus has created what is sure to be the flagship motherboard for the P67 lineup, the Maximus IV Extreme.
I decided to conduct both the unboxing and review/benchmarks in this single video, so please enjoy!

Thanks...I suppose if I defined where to place two DIMM modules then people may not understand SATA II and III.
Time constraints, though.
Didn't wanna make it too long a video.

+ rep for the nice review...I sort of wish I needed all the cool features of the ROG board, but I don't. I'm going to hopefully end up with the WS Revolution board, which has been described as this board with about 20% of the features (and a much better PCIe layout for folding, LOL)

Thanks for the rep...yeah I hope people think it was a good choice to combine the unboxing and review into one video.
The WS Revo is a great one, but it's certainly missing style points with the eye-rolling '57 Chevy blue in places

+ rep for the quality review. This board really gives me the urge to get some 580s and start gaming again.
