*Delided cpu.
To be perfectly honest historically ROG boards have always been up there as a premium board. That said I have built several computers with Asrock boards for friends and they have been good too though I can't vouch for their current range.

Thank you and sorry for the request.

the Apex is a good board

but stripped of a few features compared to other Asus boards in the same price range

other Asus Z270 boards get promoted for good audio solutions, on-board wifi
built in mono block

what makes the Apex stand out is it can reach 4266 speed on RAM (if RAM and IMC play along) at the expense of 2 RAM slots
while all other z270 from Asus "only" reach 4133 speeds and have the same OC settings
it would be a challenge to find a RAM kit at 4266 rated speeds were the uptick in price couldn't upgrade you from a gtx1080 to a ti



if I would be doing a custom loop and don't have a CPU block already it would be the Asus Maximus IX Extreme
really liking the in and out temp sensors and flow control on the mono block

or a formula again if you're into the clean look the armor provides

if you're going for price then any z270 from Asus with a ROG on the packaging will do

but in honesty it would be hard to find a bad Z270 these days

the Z is already the premium desktop line

I wish EVGA would step up and add more features to their boards. It's VERY limited as to what you can change when overclocking. No LLC configuration, no idle voltage changes just basic stuff.

Agree with you regarding the Z270 Extreme it's an incredible board from a water cooling perspective especially the level of fan control within the UEFI given its set up for radiator fans which means more control over ramp up and down delays etc. On board sound is somewhat overated though in my opinion as a sound card does give much better results. I hope someday motherboard manufacturers realise putting on board sound circuitry in the lower left hand corner of a board is the worst place to put it given that in a majority of cases it's right near the PSU, not ideal. The Apex is an excellent board from all reports for its target audience which is overclockers and benchers more so than gamers. If I could fit M9E in my chassis that's the board I would purchase given its targeted at someone like me a water cooler, it's very different to anything else in the market right now, not cheap but oh so nice.

I hear you

but most people would not try to chase a speed on RAM of 5000 if it means only using 1 module



all ROG boards offer plenty of options to play around with and overlock the same
there's not a ROG board that you will achieve higher CPU clocks than another

hell my formula VIII doesnt overclock better or has more features (that don't come from the chipset itself) than my "old" sabertooth z77 just because it is more pricy, just looks better to my eyes

it just depends too much on the CPU to begin with

nothing worse than dropping 600 bucks on a board but getting a dud as a CPU biggrin.gif



I'd say pick Asus Z270
they're all good

just go for the one that ticks all boxes (like wifi and what not) or looks best to you

Woooooo the extreme is just "woooooooow" drool.gif

the only problem is the cost :S ok the double water block for the cpu and the mobo transistors, but if you add a 90$ waterblock on the asus IX formula it will be 150$ cheaper than asus IX extreme and I think they share the same things.

I'm so confused now ahahaha a lot of motherboards have very nice things ecc, but everyone have something "bad", who the price, who a feature, ecc. For example, looking for a good case that can have enough space for a custom loop with 2 rads I found the Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t that is a very beautifull case and it have 4 3.0 usb ports in the front panel BUT the problem is that 50% of the motherboards have only ONE usb 3.0 front connector that can active only 2 ports lol, and the other 50% have 2 connector that will be perfect. For now the only two mobo that have 2 connectors are the gigabyte and the asrock, but between the 2 only the gigabyte z270 gaming 8 have the mobo cooler preinstalled, BUT that mobo cost a lot ahahah. Choose hardware is an hard life xD

I'm just frustrating myself trying to find the best piece of hardware without spend too much -_-

Finally got around to testing 1st 7700k (G023) after delid. Initial "impression"

53/50 @ 1.44v isn't stellar, but for msrp, is a gem. In reality F977 wasn't all that much better on water. Getting used to new mobo (From M8I to M9A), but should be on LN2 with it in nest week or two.

I figured out the huge temps on my 4.9ghz overclock, its due to VCCSA and Agent having to run near 1.25/1.30 to keep my 3600 CL15 memory stable :O

I dont think its worth going 5ghz and drastically having to reduce my memory speed though, especially in cpu bound games.

Just curious, has anyone tried underclocking their ICH? I havent found intel specs but i think it runs around 1v by default.
