ASUS ROG Maximus XI Apex available

Designed for extreme overclockers

Looking at the Z390 line-up from ASUS not much has changed compared to their Z370 line-up. There is still the "Code" as well as the "Hero", which specifically target enthusiasts. Furthermore we see once again the "Gene" which is the microATX version. If you are an extreme overclocker you'll be happy to know that ASUS is back with the ROG Maximus XI Apex as well and it's finally available.

The Maximus XI Apex is based on an ATX form factor and it drops the "X" shaped which was present in the previous model. There are three full-sized and metal-strengthened PCIe slots. Between each PCIe slot there are two slots distance, which allows running multi-GPU setups comfortably.

Checking the SATA connector count there are six of them, while the other models of the same generation feature from six to eight of these connectors. What's not there anymore is the U.2 connector. One of the most unusual features on this board is the “third” DIMM slot. In combination with an adapter card it's possible to put two M.2 SSDs into the DIMM slot.

Looking for additional features we find the usual bells and whistles you'd expect from an overclocking motherboard, such as onboard buttons and a debug display, slow mode, LN2 mode, CMOS button and much more. At a first glance this is certainly a good looking motherboard and judging by the records that have already been broken using this board it is also a highly capable platform.

The ROG Maximus XI Apex will be soon available for 449 Euro.
