    built to BREAK LIMITS


    Rampage VI Apex is built to break world records — and it's already done just that. With its optimized layout, high-quality components, and its ability to withstand the rigors of sub-zero operation with liquid-nitrogen (LN2) and helium (LHe), Apex has already smashed seven world records and scored 16 global first-places.* These include the highest CPU frequency for Intel Core i7 at 7.562GHz with four cores and eight threads — that's a staggering 75.87% overclock of the chip‘s default 4.3GHz frequency!

    * World records and global first-place positions were verified on 27 July 2017, and are recorded at

    “With APEX, ASUS ROG managed to bring the LN2-OC optimizations onto a consumer board which also achieves best clocks for 24/7 overclocking. My go-to board for Skylake-X.”

    Overclocker's Toolkit


    Rampage VI Apex includes an overclocker's toolkit with hardware-level controls to aid your overclocking experience. The motherboard's Dual BIOS allows you to experiment with different firmware versions and provides a path for recovery in case one becomes corrupt, and the onboard switch allows you to easily change between the first and second BIOS. The overclocker's toolkit also includes a Pause switch to halt the system, and four PCIe switches for quick slot toggling. Other tools include Safe Boot and ReTry buttons, an LN2 jumper to aid POST at sub-zero temperatures, and a Slow mode switch. Combined, they're quick and easy time-savers designed to help you break more records.

    1. QLED

      Four LEDs to show the current boot status.


      Jumper to enable special options and functions for liquid-nitrogen (LN2) overclocking.

    3. Slow Mode Switch*

      Instantly reduces the CPU ratio to 8X to bypass finicky benchmark passages.

    4. Pause Switch*

      Activate to pause the system and fine-tune OC parameters mid-benchmark.


      One press instantly initiates a hard reset.


      Instantly reset the PC and boot directly into a safe mode.

    7. PROBEIT

      Check the voltage via integrated measurement points.


      Four switches to independently enable or disable any of the four x16-length PCIe slots, for easy debugging.

    9. MEMOK!

      Instantly retune memory settings for a guaranteed boot.


      Switch quickly and easily between BIOS one and two.

    11. *Slow mode and Pause switches require that LN2 mode is enabled

    Condensation Detection

    Specialized circuitry allows Rampage VI Apex to detect when condensation occurs on the back of the board. Divided into four distinct sections — CPU, DRAM_L, DRAM_R and PCIe — the feature provides a useful warning when an area may be at risk of short-circuiting.

    • CPU LED

      Flashes when condensation is detected near the CPU.
    • DRAM LEDs

      Flashes when condensation is detected near the left and/or right DRAM.
    • PCIE LED

      Flashes when condensation is detected near the PCIe.

    Optimized Trace Layout

    It's the combination of intricate and innovative engineering that makes Rampage VI Apex such a big performer. Allotting just one DIMM slot per channel allowed our engineers to create shorter trace distances, which in turn means tighter control over impedance and reduced possibility for signal interference. We also adopted an engineering-first strategy, paring back the number of integrated circuits to enable the best possible trace routing. The end result is a motherboard with better stability and more overclocking headroom, allowing you to get the best performance from your memory kit.


    ROG engineers adopted a four-slot memory design on an EATX motherboard, enabling a highly optimized layout for memory trace paths to minimize noise and improve signal integrity. Rampage VI Apex allows for DDR4 overclocking to reach up to 4500+MHz in dual channel mode, and 4133MHz+ with 4 DIMMs in quad-channel mode. ROG also works with all the major DDR4 memory vendors to ensure the best compatibility and real-word performance.


    A dedicated base-clock generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from Intel® Core™ X-series processors. And, of course, Rampage VI Apex includes Extreme Engine Digi+ — ROG's revered digital power controller. With a Digi+ PWM controller, PowlRstage® IR3555 MOSFETs, MicroFine alloy chokes, and 10K black metallic capacitors, Extreme Engine Digi+ technology delivers consistently stable power.
