    Look with a magnifier in that area of the PCB that's exposed on the corner opposite the arrow. IIRC, there are a few chip resistors and a logic chip on the x CPU's. I don't have a z CPU or a...

    Ok , agree. BTW, did you also make sure no SMT parts are missing from the CPU?

    This comes from the x299, so it may not be relevant. The corner of the CPU PCB opposite the arrow index is concerned with the first slot. You may wish to check that there are no bent socket pins in...

    Those figures looked too good to me; I got suspicious and tried varying the multiplier. Sure enough, I couldn't reproduce them. Although the BIOS was at X52, and the benchmarks were consistent...

    Rob, my Apex XI and the Extreme XI I had (with 1401 and a 2080ti) are strange about presenting the BIOS; often on my 4K monitor there appears to be no video. I frequently have to go to a 2K monitor,...

    Just did a Clear CMOS on my Apex XI and it did the same thing - BIOS did not appear on my 4K monitor, and the white LED stayed on. Had to hook up a 2K, reboot, and after BIOS appeared, was able to...

    Recently got one of the last bhphoto KS's and a like-new Apex XI. Custom water loop has a Optimus V2, EK pump/res and EK PE 360. BIOS cooling rating about 200.

    All I've done so far is set the...

    A2 seems to indicate the board is alright, but doesn't see a bootable device. This seems to indicate a BIOS settings problem rather than a board problem, but have you checked that all jumpers and...

    The Max 11 Apex is hard to find, probably only second-hand and a high price. However, it has two advantages for overclockers over the other Max 11 versions, which may not matter to you:

    There are some SMT components on the CPU PC board that have to do with PCIe slot one; they are on the opposite corner from the arrow index, at least on x299 CPU's. Can't say for sure on Z370/390. ...

    I have just brought up a new-to-me M11 Apex with a 9900KS, Tridentz 2x8 4266 C19, and heavy-duty water cooling. The BIOS is 1401. Everything seems fine at default plus XMP 1.

    Now testing/using the M11 Apex with my Sam M2 boot drive mounted in the DIMM_2 module. One socket seems pretty fast, the other slow. The manual only says when the module is used, PCIe slot 1 drops...

    I have both used boards sitting here, cost me about the same, and am still pondering which one to keep.

    Thanks; you answered my question: what "IDE initialization is started" meant. I think I can assume the board is all right. However, the box is missing the Dimm_2 adapter/heat sink and the Wifi...

    Problem with a new board

    Apex vs Extreme

    Of course, used Apex's are a pain to find, and new Extremes are very pricey. I found both second-hand, so am deciding which to get. I plan to use a 9900KS with a custom water loop, and push for...
