I won't use 3 gpus! Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking December 26, 2009 3:14:33 PM Well Maximus Formula has some extra features like LCD Poster,also a better cooling and usually ROG series OC better. What's your budget ? theoulis December 26, 2009 3:15:36 PM Almost 150 euros. But Maximus II Gene also has LCD poster and I think that the differences in the cooling system are trivial. Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking December 26, 2009 4:07:15 PM As i said GENE is a mATX board,do you need a mATX board ? theoulis December 26, 2009 4:08:26 PM Not exactly but why do I have to pay 30 euros more? :S Will it serve me better? Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking December 26, 2009 4:16:25 PM As i said you can ASUS P5Q or Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R,they are both cheaper than Maximus II formula and are good boards with good reviews from the web theoulis December 26, 2009 4:19:41 PM Okay. Thnx a lot. P5Q deluxe is on the same price as maximus II gene! Gigabyte is not sold here in Greece! Also, I think that gene has better cooling system, or not? Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking December 26, 2009 5:10:22 PM If you want a mATX motherboard go for Gene,but P5Q Deluxe is an ATX motherboard theoulis December 26, 2009 5:11:28 PM Which one will serve me better? I won't use 3 vgas.. :S Maziar a c 135 V Motherboard a b K Overclocking December 26, 2009 5:14:00 PM Both will be fine,however if you have an ATX case go for P5Q Deluxe. mATX boards are mostly used in SFF cases theoulis December 26, 2009 5:23:05 PM ATX require full cases?
