Asus Maximus II Gene: Socket 775 microATX motherboard pictured
The Maximus II Gene from Asus is supposed to be ideal for compact LAN PCs. In contrast to the already available Rampage II Gene the Maximus has a socket 775.
Asus equips the microATX motherboard with two graphics card slots, six SATA ports, Firewire, E-SATA, one PCI and one PCI- Express x1 slot. The MAximus II Gene also has a power and a reset button. Next to the four DDR2 memory slots there is a button labeled "MEMOK”. It is supposed to ensure stable operation with touchy memory.
