Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Yeah I thought there were plenty of fan headers. I will check it out. I will be running the CPU fan off the CPU fan header and the case fans also off fan headers. Since I water cooled my video card, temps do not get high enough to run case fans off the video card.

Here is a review on YT I copied and pasted. See how the APEX gets good memory scores? This is due to the low-latency, short traces to the CPU IMO.

I am not nitpicking about RAM, and I realize I won't feel any performance difference between the 3200 or 2133MHz but, I will not worry about running at 3200MHz. This board will run high frequency DRAM very easily. 3200MHz is at the end of the performance improvement spectrum according to sources but it is not outrageously high considering the APEX can reach 4500MHz on two sticks.
