Getting more stable with new BIOS, awesome featureset

HUGE overclocking capability, great BIOS but has been unstable, getting much better over time, and USB flashback is good to have if you brick it.

    Award
  • Bit-Tech - Premium Grade

    "The new Gene is better in a number of areas. The onboard audio is significantly improved, rising from a mid-table result to nearly a chart-topping position, despite being re-integrated onto the PCB. You also have the benefit of the Z170 chipset's ability to take advantage of the latest super-fast SSDs plus Asus has revamped and tweaked many software features such as RAMCache and Keybot, and you can now update the BIOS over the internet too, direct from the EFI."

    Award
  • OC3D - Gold

    "A quick glance through the specifications shows how much technology ASUS have stuffed onto the Gene. Start at the top end of proceedings and we have both types of connector for the latest USB 3.1 protocol. 10GB/s of bandwidth is enough to make even the most storage hungry user stop and think, let alone the benefits it brings to data transmission from future media. Inside the Gene supports the fastest M.2 drives with all their ability to make even the fastest SATA offerings look positively slow."
