Overclocking Results

 

CPU Overclocking

The motherboard had no problem taking the 7700K to 5GHz with 1.3v and XMP enabled, I used LLC level 7. The Maximus IX Apex is an overclocking motherboard after all, so I didn't expect any issues in the CPU overclocking side.

 

 

Compatible Memory Overclocking Kits

 

In this section, I overclock four memory kits only using XMP, if the kit works then the results are below. I welcome memory vendors to send in their kits to be tested on each motherboard.

 

Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz C16 8GBx2

The Maximus IX Apex overclocked all of our kits like a champ.
