The Formula and Gene have some considerable differences, namely ATX versus Micro-ATX form factor, so letís take a closer look and see what they have in store.

    All the boards I have reviewed on Intel and AMD, overclocking is a crapsoot on high overclocks. The FaiT boards are easy to overclock and have way more features than the rest hands down. Performance is essentially the same at equal view speeds. Asus does have a extensive package.
