    Coup de Coeur

    The ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX is truly impressive. It can even seem intimidating with its multitude of buttons and functions. Using this card was a real pleasure.

    Coup de Coeur

    If you want to take full advantage of DDR5 overclocking or if you plan to switch to LN2, then this is the card you need and not another one! [...] This ROG Maximus Z790 APEX has finally reached full maturity in terms of its PCB but also and above all thanks to the great team behind the design and BIOS patching that is doing an awesome job.

    performance first

    ASUS and Intel announced a new processor overclocking record a few days ago, overclocking Intel's 13th generation Core i9-13900K processor to 9.008GHz, and the motherboard used to set this record is the ROG Maximus Z790 APEX designed for overclocking. The built-in display output is canceled, and 24+0 phase power supply is provided. The 2-slot memory can also support high-clock overclocking. In addition, many convenient switches are provided for overclocking needs.

    It's definitely not a dime a dozen, and that's what you're paying for, too. But you're mainly paying for the OC potential, when world records for Intel CPU clocks and this platform in general are actually falling on this board. So if you are interested in the field of "OC sports", ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX is quite possibly the TOP motherboard for you, because this is not really a normal motherboard, it is more of a tool or sports equipment for overclockers.

  • At the aesthetic level, this board is the most beautiful of all the Apexes, but even at the operational level, there is no downside. In fact, there are no downsides because it is a board that has managed to break the 9 GHz barrier and is made to withstand incredible stresses. There is no better board on the market right now than this one.
