    Apex XIII bios

    0903 is officially out
    probably based on beta which has been available since a month or so, not sure if it is day & night, not having too much hope though*

    I am curious when dual rank will be ok with this crappy board

    plus the power stuff, endless restarts, *RBAR, USB poling rate etc...

    looking fwd for the KP Z590 board, can’t wait to throw this board or hit it with a hammer, can’t RMA it since Asus warranty is not at all international, money thrown down to the toilet*

    installed it, seems different from the beta version. At least some menus are different, and ram OC feels more... robust?

    With said board, ve seen people run 3866 gear 1 super tight for DR bdie with ease...

    Are you after gear 2? It seems the MSI unify is more optimised for g2 dr at this stage... Perhaps shamino/safedisk have something in the works...

    using 10900K, no gear stuff applicable
    so mad that I sold my XII...
    can't use XIII properly at all...

    tried the last two days lots of bios versions, testing my 2x16 stuff with GSAT
    0903 is definitely the crappiest one for dual rank stability, 0106 is not bad but too rough, 0605 lasted *longer*
    clearly they did something on the way...

    I think I lost my patience, going to smash this garbage and re order Apex XII, while is still available in some stores...
    tried for 2 months already to run this crap, don’t think they will fix this sh*t too soon

    yeah, this is why I’m realizing that I made a huge mistake moving to Z590
    saw lots of users with XIII and 10th struggling with RAM in general...

    maybe they don’t give a damn fixing the 10th on Z590, although it’s not fair advertising these boards for 10th also
    *and moving to 11th from 10th going to fewer cores in 2021 it’s not quite an option, isn’t it?

    * even so, dual rank/ 2x16 gives problems on 11th also...

    I'm on the opinion that the i9 11900 should've been called i7 11750 tbh. I *do* have a 11900f on my apex (odd combo I know), but it was all because I didn't felt the need to OC the cpu as much as I had to OC the memory. Still, haven't work around that much with it. Work atm keeps me too busy and still seeing if there are kinks to be ironed out on the board itself.

    I *did* notice changes on the memory training on the beta vs official, like, it seemed that it actually trained the memory kit I have atm. That or the memory training profiles are working now. You can access it with your 10th gen?
