When I powered up the Apex system for the first time, I was taken aback by the LEDs on the underside of the motherboard; they produce a really neat effect all around the PCB.

ASUS's RGB LED implementation on the Apex is very cool, the multiple zones to the customizable tag all add to the uniqueness of the Apex. Some might wonder why the Apex even has RGB LEDs, and I can't really answer that. What I can say is that ASUS wanted the Apex to be unique, and the RGB LEDs and other aesthetic enhancements make it one of the most novel motherboards I have reviewed in a long time.
