    Just got a few new ASUS Z170 motherboards in for testing: the Z170 Deluxe, Maximus VIII Hero, and the Maximus VIII Gene. These systems aren't built out yet, but we figured we'd get some pictures up as soon as possible. Enjoy!

When I look at the Golden Builds forum a post from Slugnet appears that is from 09/2012, almost 3 years old! Following the July 2015 Buyer's Guide for CustoMac Pro Socket 2011, this is my current list: ASUS Rampage IV Gene Core...

    Z170 chipset's support for 64GB of DDR4 RAM has me very intrigued -- intrigued enough to make me consider hold off on getting a Haswell/Z97 build now, and wait until there's a good community support for a Skylake/Z170 build. I imagine we'll need to see Apple release a Skylake Mac first?
