ASUS’s Republic of Gamers line is just what you think it is, a line of products specifically targeted at gamers. While many PC games have full tower rigs with multiple graphics card and intense watercooling others just have a simple setup. Being a PC gamer who attends multiple LAN parties a year I made the switch to a Micro-ATX system a long time ago to make it easier for me to bring my PC to events. ASUS of course catering to gamers actually has two motherboards in their Republic of Gamers Z87 stack, the Maximus VI Gene which is a Micro-ATX board and the even smaller Maximus VI Impact which is a Mini-ITX board. Today, our review will be focusing on the Maximus VI Gene, which has quite a lot of features for gamers and overclockers alike. Let’s check it out!
EK Water Blocks, known all around the world for providing premium quality cooling gear, has recently made an introduction of its EK-SB ASUS M6G.
