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.

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.

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.

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.

For people operating 4 GPUs, it's expected that they're all going to be water-cooled.

Not always, sometimes I use 4 air cooled cards.

The pic below shows why I don't like the connectors the way they are at the bottom of the motherboard. The board is a Rampage V Edition 10 and as you can see all the connectors are useless except for the 4 pin molex which is turned through 90 degrees.



Asus should turn all the connectors though 90 degrees so they can be used when running 4 cards.

Using NVidia cards is a pain but AMD cards are even worse as they often have less clearance underneath. This is not the card manufacturers fault though, it is very poor motherboard design.
