    Congrats super-bro, but it doesn't make any business sense for me to purchase every gen, it's only a typewriter build for heaven's sake.

    Check out these 13600K thermals at 7800MT/s DDR5 overclock.

    Hehehehehehehe, the little i5 that could (do everything).

    and I haven't even turned off the e-cores yet, thermals should drop even lower, I LOVE this Z790 Apex.

    Contact frame? I don't need no contact frame. lol

    SuperBraegnok, how do I turn off the e-cores in the ROG bios?

    I'm coming from Rocket Lake and skipped Alder, lots of new items in bios I'm unfamiliar with.

    Is it something like disable hybrid cores? lol

    My PCB is white, yet Tiny Tom Logan in his preview video said his was light gray.

    Believe it may depend on the type of light you throw on the board, older yellow indoor bulbs will make the board appear light gray whereas LED super-white lighting and natural sunlight, the PCB is very white. There's also a white flake powdercoat on some of the heatsink components that is directionally reflecting, the same heatsink will appear silver from one viewing angle and then white from another, very cool and expensive to create, ROG really put in the extra-effort with this Apex board.

    Wonder where kvarq ran off to? I think he was waiting for me to have major issues with the Z790 Apex. lol

    I can understand completely, both he and Braegnok owned substandard Z690 Apex boards that would not OC mem kits well. That kind of stuff, those bad hardware experiences, stay with you for awhile, probably why Braegnok is going with a Z790 Dark this gen.

    Maybe kvarq will grab a Z790 Apex and maybe not. Come on back bro and tell us how ya feel.

    As soon as I figure out how to turn off the e-cores I'm going for 8000MT/s DDR5, woooooooooo!

    Can the little i5 hit 8000?

    It does look very cool John, yet I believe hours of typing on that thing would lead to serious carpal tunnel. lol


    Lots of keyboards made for show these days, the market must be HUGE.


    Always look at those amazing show build computers, so fancy and expensive, then I tell myself, my PC is faster, quieter, runs colder, and costs less.

    Advanced/cpu config,.. is for adjusting active p-cores or active e-cores,.. and disable efficient-cores.

    Thank you. I set active e-cores to 0, boot time is faster and single thread performance also improved.

    Now, I'm going for the big 8000!

    I'll use 1.45v and 38CL for 1st attempt.

    Thank you ROG!

    This is why I keep buying Apex boards. Newegg is promising new Z790 Apex stock on Wednesday Nov 30th for North America.
