The latest Core-X platforms from Intel launched just a few months ago with company expanding their HEDT offerings to include both Kaby-Lake-X and Skylake-X processor series. It’s fair to say that at this point in time the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard has proved to be one of the more popular board choices for the new platform, which is why it’s great to ASUS produce a really solid Extreme Overclocking guide with that board specifically in mind.
Published (with permission) on the Overclocking.Guide site, we are treated to a very in-depth piece that will be really useful to any Extreme Overclockers looking to push their Core-X processor to the max. Specific subjects covered include advice about overclocking with LN2, overclocking DRAM (target frequencies and expectations), plus some pretty advanced advice about how to install and remove a DMI pin – an ingenious and unique way to get more voltage to key parts of the CPU.
The guide also covers a host of topics that are specific to the Rampage VI Apex board including; USB Flashback, PCI Express Configurations, USB and SATA ports, known issues and more. For serious overclocking with the latest Core-X platforms, Rampage VI Apex users will enjoy taking a look.
