Default the OLD marines.

OK in an old issue of white dwarf an adeptus machanicus exploritor fleet landed on a planet on the outskirts of th eye of terror. they found ancient marines, long dead but with almost twice the amount of organs and these marines where better in every way, bigger tougher, and if alive i think smarter but it looked as though they were grown not inducted because the flesh was like three years old after the stasis wore off. is this stuff still cannon and if so how potent where marines back then?

I would not think that it is cannon, because in the Black Templar codex it names all of the Implants, and the Templar, with one of the most pure geneseeds, are only missing two implants. And they are normal sized marines.

That could be the issue detailing the Cursed Founding, something that did actually happen in the fluff. it all depends on your definition of "old"

Well not long before the Heresy the Emperor's Children began to tinker with their biology, Commander Eidolon for instance was given numerous new implants including vocal implants that allowed him to scream with shattering force into his foes faces.

However I am not aware of any other cases of "enhanced marines" before the Heresy and if the fluff piece is fairly old than chances are it is far from canon now.
