I don't need the 8 dimm slots out of the three asus x99 boards I have used I have never used more than 4 dimm slots, also I don't use wireless so why pay more for AD wireless and I don't have anything close to 10g internet so why pay extra for the 10g card that comes with the Rampage VI Extreme, and the biggest thing for me that I don't like about the new Extreme board is all the plastic and shiny stuff they put n it and I have used the Rampage V Extreme and the Edition 10 Extreme and the X99-E WS/usb 3.1 the X99-E WS looked the best to me.

Also, the Apex board has two 8-pin CPU power connectors and a method to fix fans to the VRM heatsink and M.2 risers (the M.2 fans can also cool the RAM). According to Asus, having fewer DIMM slots (and fewer features) means fewer traces on the board, a cleaner design, and more stable overclocks. Even if you are not into extreme overclocking, stability when running 100% on 10 or 12 cores is a nontrivial problem. The Extreme will probably cost 20%~35% more than the Apex.

Different boards for different users. Be thankful the market is big enough to encourage this kind of variety.

Long term stability with performance is what I'm after, and would think most are after. This specific Apex model meets that, for me at least. MUCH more so than the x270 variant Apex.

Anyone knows whats the fan size that goes in the vrm mounting. I would guess 50mm because the dimm fan mounts allows 2x50 or 1x100

der8auer's video about the Apex vrm cooling said he used a 50mm fan.

Apex vs Extrene:
Quote:
7 Amps per pin is the regular rating, afaik. And I have heard up to 9 Amps per pin for heavy gauge with the Pro Cool connectors. The Apex has 8+8 because it caters for LN2 use. The Extreme's heatsink is better with airflow, outperforming the Apex's array by more than 50W. For what you guys will be pulling with water cooling, the Extreme should do just fine. And, you can always step up to a monoblock if you want to keep things under tight control.
Quote:
They are both good enough for the kind of overclocking you guys do. Just one has a better heatsink if you're going to push over 400w through the cpu, which 99.9% of you won't be doing.

Just picked up a 7900x yesterday and a silly Prime Deluxe board... man what is Asus waiting for lol.... Now I am sitting here and thinking I too will take back the Prime Deluxe as it is not even open and I guess just wait. Starting to worry about Asus when you look at the memory QVL it doesn't even show any QVL list for anything other than 4 and 6 cores.

Both the Apex and Extreme now include where to buy buttons on the ASUS US site, which is currently limited to Amazon. The Apex isn't showing up on Amazon yet, but the Extreme is (as unavailable). Newegg Business has also been listing both for a few days now, though by way of the typically higher priced, third party vendors. I'd provide, links to them, but the search functionality on at least that portion of that site has been acting wonky since yesterday

The manual for the Extreme is now also available by way of the board's support page.
