Overclocking

Ok so the screenshot below we didn't think we would see again after the Apex but the rampage pulled a blinder. It wasn't bench stable but then again neither was the Apex. The Apex no matter what we did including dropping the memory speed wouldn't remain stable above 4.5GHz. The Rampage however ended up almost completely stable at the same 1.225v the Apex used for 4.5 at a review first for us 4600MHz. Yep that's right the first time we have seen 4.6 stable at 1.225. Blender did need a few more volts to pass at 1.25 but the crazy thing was the Rampage CPU temps were cooler even with the high clock and volts than any of the board running at 4.5. 

We could get 3600MHz ram running easy peasey but not with the 4.6 clock in tow so we dropped it to 'just 3200MHz in favor of the extra CPU grunt... It was the right choice as you'll see shortly!

and what will be disabled without a 1000$ cpu...

but ok to be fair... someone who buys a 650 euro mainboard will probably buy at least the 7900x.Quote

I am gobbling on my keyboard. This is masterpiece.

I am bit disappointed that we didn't get uber review like we had on Rampage V Ed10. I really enjoy proper TTL reviews. And i really like your shirt Tom.Quote

OK, TTL while I was lurking on OC3D page for ages this review finally encouraged me to create an account.

I was so set on Apex after your review. Waiting for delidded 7900X from Caseking, have memory, most storage. Just not the board.

Apex has much appeal to me (despite all weird/bonkers cut-outs on the PCB ) with only 4 DIMM slots and possibility of connecting 4 NVMe drives using both DIMM.2 AICs (even ordered another 960 1TB just for that reason). Plus on top of that, OCUK have plenty of Apex boards in stock. I was so ready to order Apex by Monday and now this...

You dropped this R6E bombshell last night and I have to get it. I was drooling so much I've downloaded and replayed video 5 times on the bounce and twice today... I really hate to wait another month, but I have to get R6E, not the Apex. For now nobody has it in stock anywhere in Europe. Whoever is first gets my money.Quote

All the connectors at the bottom are covered by a 4th card. As this board is aimed at people using 4 way mGPU setups this is very poor design and would be very easy to correct by turning the connectors through 90 degrees.Quote
