    For those boards get a 10900kf. Those are easy overclockers if you have good cooling.
    If you are not going to OC memory then you would be wasting money on the Apex .
    I would go for the Hero (which I have so I am biased).

    If you are not going to overclock you might look at the non-ROG boards.

    No I do not plan on of my PC
    I just like Asus
    I have had other brand motherboards but I like Asus
    I do have a coolmaster water cooler but this PC is going to be my last one I will build!
    So it will be this year parts and not something two or three years out of date
    I could go gigabyte for a motherboad but like Ford or Chevy or Dodge
    I just think Asus will last longer then others so I do not want a cheap board like I usually get
    Just one that that will last maybe two days before it is out of date!
