ASUS ROG Maximus IX Apex
ROG Maximus IX Apex


The new ROG Maximus IX Apex delivers bold design and unparalleled power, hearkening back to the origins of the brand. With an optimized layout and radical aesthetics, the Apex is engineered to smash performance boundaries and to look good while doing it. That makes it the perfect motherboard for overclocking addicts who push their system to the limits, or for enthusiasts who want to build a showcase gaming rig!


Maximus IX Apex is a motherboard built for serious performance. The ROG R&D team redefined boundaries with the Apex design -- elevating its overclocking potential to dizzying heights. Manufactured using some of the industry's highest-quality components, the Apex features a convention-breaking two-slot memory design on EATX to enable a highly optimized trace layout that reduces crosstalk and improves signal integrity. The Apex has already surpassed performance peaks by setting multiple world records to achieve global first places, breaking several long-standing records in the process. Among these record-breaking performances is the best Intel© Core™ CPU-frequency since the X58 platform-based motherboards, with a single-core, single-thread frequency of 7.383GHz, and 7.328MHz at four cores and eight threads. The new board has also set a reference base-clock (BCLK) record at 584MHz, and a memory frequency surpassing 5GHz in single channel — turning in a breathtaking 5041MHz!

The ROG team has raised the bar once again on memory overclocking with its latest 7th Gen Intel Core motherboard. Maximus IX Apex has enabled Corsair to showcase our Vengeance RGB DDR4 8GBx2 kit running at an impressive 4266MHz speed at CES 2017.

Over the years, G.Skill has always worked closely with ASUS and ROG to develop the highest-performance products for every new platform generation. With the extreme memory-overclocking capability of the ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard, we are able to develop the fastest DDR4 16GB 8GBx2 memory kit up to 4266MHz with rock-solid reliability — and extreme performance for the 7th Gen Intel Core processors. Tequila Huang — Corporate Vice President - G.skill


The dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 7th Generation Intel© processors is what allowed Apex to set an overclocked BCLK frequency record of 584MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights. And, of course, Maximus IX Apex includes Extreme Engine Digi+ — ROG's revered digital power controller. With Texas Instruments NexFET™ MOSFETs, and with MicroFine alloy chokes, the Digi+ PWM controller with 10K black metallic capacitors and Extreme Engine Digi+ technology always delivers consistently stable power.
