Can you post pictures of where the issue is with direct die and water blocks? I have the Apex XI and 9900KS and am thinking about going direct die in the future.

Oh, I'm going with the Apex XI, G.Skill 4800, the CL 17 if they are available by the second week of March or CL18 if not, and getting a 9900ks.
May the CPU lottery gods smile upon me, or can someone sacrifice a goat at least?

Sorry Bro - My Max XI is playing an away game (with deployed nephew) and I have not had an Apex XI. I only have one 1151 board - the Apex X.
Check the dimensions of the New blocks from Optimus Cooling. realy high quality stuff with really clean machining. I'm running their V2 on the R6EO and it's really a top performer. I have their Foundation block - excellent stuff.

No posting about unreleased kits... until they are released.

Put a fan on the RGB sticks if that's the issue. My Royals 4800c18 kit runs fine with the rgb enabled. When I run them at 1.9V I switch all lights off.

@Jpmboy

You own a Maximus XI Extreme I think, what kind of memory overclock you getting with 4x8GB?

jeffk Has anyone noticed that Q-fan Step up / down speed are completly ignored ? So the CPU Fan / Case fan are waving when the CPU temp spike just for second, when browsing for example.

(Q-fan Bios setting without AI suit)

Hehe, that's right. I want my cake and icecream!

I ended up turning off all the LEDs. I can't see the ram RGB anyways from the cpu cooler (D15) so it was just extra heat.

Just my .02
GSkill 4800 c18 doesn't come without rgb. This kit was needed for best overclocking capabilities. The rest of your post is irrelevant.

Kind of over this RGB thing.
Hoping they put out higher binned ram without RGB going forward.
