Good point! I’m going to reword it to the best one I’ve tested becuase I’ve only tested a few. I will reword it and update the article. Thanks for your input. I think the point I was trying to make was I love the layout and I’ve had better successful memory overclocks with this board. I’m over 4000MHz. I am going to add in an update soon.

I can add in results from the other boards I’ve used for comparison. What tests would you like to see? I’m trying to add more value to my reviews and like anything it’s a process. Every audience can be tricky!

Yeah I only use e-leet for monitoring, and other people have also had issues with making adjustments from it.

you should check out the evga forum for info on the vdroop. the evga bios is not like other setups.

Yeah, I can! Since I'm testing it though and supposed to learn and be the expert on it, I may just play around with it. I've looked into it and worked with EVGA on it. I think normal believe it or not may be my best bet but I don't mind the voltage overshooting a little bit. I'm trying to get my voltage as static as possible to my manual input.

I appreciate the way you received my feedback. Of course it's fine to say that you like the board and that it's the best you've tested.

When reviewing items you kind of have to accept constructive criticism. I don't mind when people have issues and they offer a solution or suggestions. It's when people complain but don't offer any value. That never helps the reviewer grow.

elmor is an asus rep... I think he wants you to give the new apex some attention... Sadly the good asus OC boards aren't available in the US


I just mean on the forum someone, has gone through and found out what voltage ranges the LLC settings do. you should hunt for that...

really the LLC is the most difficult part of this board

Great Guide. I was actually looking at this board and noticed the price. I think I'll just continue to look at it, until the price drops. I do appreciate their attention to simplicity and stability over bling and aesthetics, though I think this board looks amazing. But the price and availability is just too much.

Good article, nice to see Steponz guy in review :D

I like my Apex as enthusiast OC board. Only XP support ismissing on Apex XI (but could be added with unofficial BIOS?). But Dark is one of the best OC boards, thats true (in TOP5 for LGA1151)
