Product Overview MAXIMUS IX APEX: Back to Where ROG Began
The ROG Maximus IX Apex motherboard is the latest ground-breaking addition to the ROG product family, drawing players back to ROG's origins — a one-of-a-kind community for world-class cutting-edge enthusiasts that seek to reach the apex of performance and gaming. The Maximus IX Apex is engineered to provide the best overclocking experiences while including modern ROG touches with a radical aesthetic for gamers. Apex is crafted to be a natural fit for showcase PC builds for gaming and style-conscious enthusiasts — where pure adrenaline meets pure style.

Redefining Limits
The Maximus IX Apex is positioned as a true performance-oriented motherboard, with ROG's R&D team breaking all the boundaries to create the most optimal trace layout and highest-quality power delivery. With its 2-DIMM DRAM design, Apex has already surpassed the performance peak by setting multiple world records and global first places to break several long-standing records. These include the best Intel© Core™ CPU-frequency since the X58 platform-based motherboards, with a record of 7.383GHz on a single core and one thread and 7.328GHz on four cores and eight threads. It also set a reference clock (BCLK) at 584MHz and a memory frequency surpassing the 5GHz, with 5041MHz. In total, Maximus IX Apex has broken 8 WRs 13 GFPs. Features Revolutionary design
There's no end to evolution. Apex is built to surpass all other motherboards, inside and out, with radical aesthetics and a second-to-none M.2 cooling design.

DIMM.2
The DIMM.2 module has an exclusive design that accepts two M.2 drives vertically-mounted on a DDR4 interface. This allows a DRAM fan cooler to direct air towards the M.2 drives to prevent throttling.

X-Shaped PCB
An asymmetrical X-shaped PCB gives the Maximus IX Apex a radical appearance. The cut-out sections of the motherboard allow Aura Sync lighting to shine through for an even more impressive build.

Aircraft-Inspired Heatsink
The stealth-fighter-inspired heatsink features sharp, chiselled edges and flat surfaces for visual impact.
