Corsair has two versions of Vengeance RAM. Here is the latest called VENGEANCE RGB SERIES and it works with Corair Link.

VENGEANCE® RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3600MHz C18 Memory Kit (CMR16GX4M2C3600C18)


The other one I was looking at was just the Vengeance LED series. I don't think it has any control and you buy a specific color, I was looking at red here.
http://www.corsair.com/en-us/memory/...dlighting=Red|

The other thing Corsair has going it this but it runs off Corsair Link as well.
Dominator Airflow Platinum RGB Fan


Nowhere have I found where Corsair memory works with Aura. It may work if you plug it in if the connections are compatible. All RGB LED's work the same so it would be a connection issue IMO. One other thing, most of this memory I looked at from Corsair is way up above 2666MHz so it is becoming common to run above 3000MHz nowadays.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

I am not sure how the RAMCacheII is helping yet. Where I have read about it is where it helps mechanical drives because it beats them. It is the same line Intel is using about their Optane gum sticks.

The Crystal Disk Mark scores are probably correct but the issue is what do you have running in memory? You do not store files or run executables like you do off your SSD. The data bits being stored in RAM cache is reliant on RAMCacheII. If you Google it I think if you load a whole application into RAM it may benefit. I have to admit I am kind of knocking it because it all looks good on paper or in this case CrystalDiskMark but it does not pass the common sense test since it is not widely used or talked about. Snake oil???

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

I should be getting some new stuff soon and will have this puppy together and running great I hope. Only worries would be with mobo issues but ASUS is pretty good in quality control these days. I can tell the ASUS APEX is a good one from Skully's input and from reading NE reviews, etc. I like it when a product is focused on one thing like OCing and they are serious about it. There is no 'dope azz swag' on this mobo lol. It even looks respectable.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Yeah thanks, I looked at the TRUE Spirit and is shows it is 70mm on either side of center of the LGA socket. Makes sense since it is a 140mm cooler. I did not locate any compatibility specs for the TRUE Spirit but I did not find any record of incompatibility either. I hate that the HSF covers up some of the aesthetics of the mobo such as the ROG LED logo and the VRM heat sink but that is the price you pay for a HSF. But, you get a cooling solution that always works with no risk involved in damage. Besides, I don't sit next to the window and stare into my case window. At least not all the time.

I think its going to be close, I posted from the Noctua site that Noctua 14 won't work but the Spirit is 10mm thinner...hopefully it will work!

I think you mean the Noctua NH-D15 which is 150mm. The old Noctua D14 was discontinued. I am pretty sure the specs call for the CPU clearance to be at least 70cm on either side of center. I have seen ASUS push the Slot #1 further away before. When slot #1 is even with the middle mobo mounting holes then it is as close to the CPU as possible and in the case of the APEX it is.

I will see how it goes, not only does the cooler need to fit but it has to work to. It might get too hot or dump a lot of heat out the rear of the case, IDK.

No I'm talking about the Noctua U14S its 150MM wide here's the link and here's the compatibly with the Apex...(I posted all this stuff earlier I don't think you saw it).

NH-U14S

Here's the list

Noctua

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Yeah, that is 150mm wide. I can see that it might not fit. I have given some more thought to this and I changed my mind about using a HSF. The reason is my current system is working pretty good and I like it. I had a leak, changed hoses, changed pumps, and I most recently had my flow indicator get stuck a couple of time from air bubbles. But after a few topping off's of coolant it is finally running like a top.

I wanted the HSF because my CPU plus GPU would still hit 60C in gaming but I probably won't do better with the seperate HSF. Also, I stated that I could take my card out easier being it was the only water cooled device but really I will not be taking the card or CPU out. Also, I am really set with water cooling the CPU. I do not have to do anything to the hoses to install a new CPU water block. That is a big plus as I don't have anymore tubing to spare. The current water block hoses go in the exact same spot as for a new water block. The advantage is I will not be clogging up the mobo with a large HSF and can see and access all the components and cable plugs.

The advantage to getting a new complete system is you do everything at once. I will be pulling out the old mobo so it will be a good time to change out the CPU water block. I got the XSPC one, it is high-quality but not a wallet-ripper like EK. The only issue is it won't be arriving until the 18th. I will have my other stuff way before then I believe.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Yeah good thinking, you put so much effort into water cooling it would be a shame not to keep using it, and this summer you will be happy you have it!

Yeah it was a mistake on my part. At least I saved myself from putting in the HSF and cutting the hoses up and then deciding later that still want a CPU water block. That would be a big hassle. I would have to remove the mobo again and a bunch of other time consuming stuff. I am ready for a siesta from all this upgrading lol.

Thing is I got back into water cooling and I saw the opportunity to get the full blown mobo block. I am really late to the party upgrading the X99 and buying the old 5960X. I should have went with the APEX originally.

BTW, everytime I come into my room I check the little flow indicator to see if it is spinning. I enjoy looking at it.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

That's where I'm lucky with my setup, being on the cabinet just to the right of me I see my rig all the time, its right at eye level 4 foot from me while I type this, now if I can get Aura to work I'll be a happy camper!
