OVERCLOCKING

ROG Maximus Apex boards are well-known as a record-setting platform for overclocking enthusiasts. From OC-centric components and design choices, to a massive power delivery system, the beast is back to rock new world records in multiple domains.

AI OVERCLOCKING

Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.

MEMORY

Comprehensive memory tuning options are a cornerstone of ROG motherboards. With the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex, you can extract maximum potential out of the highest-performing DDR5 modules.


COOLING

Massive heatsinks cover the Z790 Apex from top to bottom and across both M.2 expansion cards, giving critical components ample thermal headroom to realise their true potential.

HEATSINKS

1 - VRM HEATSINK ARRAY
VRM heatsinks on the MOSFETs and chokes are connected by an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.

2 - M.2 HEATSINKS AND BACKPLATES
Both onboard M.2 slots are thoroughly cooled with heatsinks and backplates for maximum cooling performance.

3 - PCIE 5.0 M.2 CARD HEATSINK
The bundled PCIe 5.0 M.2 card wraps its slot in a massive heatsink to ensure adequate cooling for the most performant drives.

4 - EXTENDED VRM AND M.2 HEATSINK
An extended heatsink helps further cool the VRM along with an M.2 drive.

5 - ROG DIMM.2 CARD HEATSINK
Two additional M.2 slots are kept cool with the DIMM.2 card's hefty heatsinks.


CONNECTIVITY

As the Maximus moniker implies, the Z790 Apex is fully equipped with the latest storage, networking, and audio features.

PCIE 5.0

Fully embracing the new standard, the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex offers abundant Gen 5 support to give unfettered bandwidth to the fastest SSDs and graphics cards available.

USB 3.2 GEN 2x2

ROG Maximus Z790 Apex comes loaded with two USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C connectors for speedy data transfers up to 20 Gbps. One is a port on the rear I/O; the other can be attached to the chassis front panel and it also features Quick Charge 4+ technology to quickly charge devices at up to 60W*.

*Requires a PCIe power supply cable to be plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector.

WIFI 6E

Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.

2.5G ETHERNET

Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi.

OPTIMISATION

A bevy of innovative tools offers control over every aspect of your system.

AI Cooling II

Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.

PERSONALISATION

The Z790 Apex keeps its iconic cross-board slash, but brings a new silver and white colour scheme to the Maximus lineup. Onboard components contrast beautifully against a white PCB, and a tasteful touch of RGB on the shroud and chipset heatsink brings customisable colour into the mix.

GROW YOUR GAMING WORLD

ROG motherboards feature ASUS Aura technology, enabling full lighting control and a variety of presets for both onboard RGB LEDs and third-party accessories. Effects can be easily synced across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
