The new revision of the ASUS Maximus III Gene has landed at [H]ard|OCP and they loved this little trooper.  It can handle both Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs, a pair of PCIe x16 slots as well as 7 SATA ports, 1 eSATA port, 14 USB ports and a more; all on a uATX board measuring slight less than 10″ square.  They described the manual overclocking on this board to be among the easiest they have encountered, though the automatic process could have used a bit of improvement.  If you need a lot of performance from a tiny box, this board would be a great place to start from.

“The ASUS Maximus III Gene expands not only the Republic of Gamers product line, but the lineage of “Maximus” motherboards ASUS has created under the name. Thus far every Maximus board has been nothing short of excellent and even bordering on legendary, the Maximus III Gene continues this tradition.”
