Squeeze every MHz from your systemBy default, all of Coffee Lake's major bus frequencies are derived from the same reference clock, limiting the control and flexibility needed to harness their full overclocking potential. ROG Maximus XI Apex features a dedicated onboard clock generator that supplies dynamic reference clocks to the CPU cores, giving you the freedom to coax every MHz of headroom from the system.

Featuring the Most Comprehensive Cooling Options Ever

Regulate Multiple Temperature Sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors, for workload based cooling. All easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.

Auto Detect Fan Headers Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Compatible with High Performance Water Pumps A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

Bolster your airflow when pushing your pc to the limit Three full speed fan headers for targeted airflow during extreme overclocking.

For High Performance Water Pumps With the popularity of custom water cooling rising, ASUS have included a dedicated header that can supply power to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

Measure your in/out Temps of connected components Enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output of any component.

Check the Efficiency of your Water flow Allows for constant monitoring of the flow rate of entire loop in your system.
