ROG Maximus Apex boards are well-known as a record-setting platform for overclocking enthusiasts. From OC-centric components and design choices, to a massive power delivery system, the beast is back to rock new world records in multiple domains.
Massive heatsinks cover the Z790 Apex from top to bottom and across both M.2 expansion cards, giving critical components ample thermal headroom to realize their true potential.
As the Maximus moniker implies, the Z790 Apex is fully equipped with the latest storage, networking, and audio features.
A bevy of innovative tools offers control over every aspect of your system.
The Z790 Apex keeps its iconic cross-board slash, but brings a new silver and white color scheme to the Maximus lineup. Onboard components contrast beautifully against a white PCB, and a tasteful touch of RGB on the shroud and chipset heatsink brings customizable color into the mix.
