ASUS Maximus III Extreme Motherboard takes the mid-range to the high-end

Enthusiast level motherboards based around mid-range chipsets isn’t something new, many times it’s a good way to get extra added performance from a more modern chip. Then again this may be taking things to the extreme.

The ASUS Maximus III Extreme Motherboard takes Intel’s P55 chipset and does their magic by adding some extra pciE lanes and enough overclocking settings to keep you busy for days. AnandTech has the review:

It’s got stability in abundance, keeps up with the likes of EVGA when overclocked and then goes further in the ease of use department by offering a comprehensive and well-polished BIOS (0705 release). Of course, there’s still room for improvement in areas like overclock recovery and such, but as it stands right now, this is probably the most polished P55 board we’ve had through the labs when we look at its all- round capabilities.

Given its price tag one would hope that it’s good to see that it can handle a healthy dose of tweaking.
