hi, im new to the forums. i had a question about changing my motherboard. i have an asus maximus v gene, and want to transfer everything to a new maximus v formula. i was wondering if i could just switch everything to the new board and not have to worry about reinstalling drivers or windows. thanks.

they have the same BIOS and chipset so it shouldn't be that rough, if at all

Uninstall all your drivers (except for a dedicated graphics card), install new motherboard, install the drivers. It should be fine. I've switched from AMD to Intel without reinstalling Windows (lucky as hell), so you really shouldn't have any trouble.
