ASUS Maximus III Gene motherboard review

We've taken a look at a couple of ASUS' "Gene" branded offerings in the past, and on both occasions we found plenty to like about the company's micro-ATX Republic of Gamers line-up which played a big part in bringing this smaller form factor out of the cold and giving it a proverbial Lemsip to nurse it back to health.  Now, having a smaller, more portable and less space-consuming PC system is cool again, and without having to skimp on performance, features or overclocking either - What's not to like?

Thankfully, ASUS have looked to continue serving micro-ATX users with the launch of Intel's latest P55 chipset and Lynnfield Core i5/Core i7 CPUs, and today we'll be taking a look at the fruit of their labours on this occasion - The Maximus III Gene.  Again, this is a motherboard which holds a place in the company's Republic of Gamers series, marking it out as a board for the overclockers and enthusiasts out there and guaranteeing innovations and improvements over what has come before wherever possible.  So, is the diminutive Maximus III Gene going to frame itself as a must-buy P55 chipset motherboard?  Let's check it out.
