    Cooling
     
    A comprehensive cooling solution features carefully-designed heatsinks with the perfect balance of surface mass and air flow. With the addition of fan headers, the onboard cooling of Maximus XII Apex has more than enough capacity for specialisation, maintaining system stability under any condition.
     
     
    ROG Water-Cooling Zone
    Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop.
     
    Water pump+
    A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
     
    Water in/out
    A dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.
     
    Water flow
    A dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.
     
     
     
     
     
    Cooler by design
     
    Maximus XII Apex features the most comprehensive cooling options ever.
     
    Multiple temperature sources
    Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
     
    4-pin PWM/DC fan
    Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
     
    AIO pump
    A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
     
    Full speed fan
    Three full speed fan headers allow for targeted airflow during extreme overclocking.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Optimisation 
     
    Maximus XII Apex is packed with intuitive and flexible tools to allow customisation across all system parameters to deliver the performance you want.
     
     
     
     
     
    Accurate Voltage Monitoring
     
    Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. Maximus XII Apex features a differential-sensing circuit and delicate IC that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.
     
     
     
     
     
    UEFI BIOS
     
    The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
     
     
     
     
    Performance Level Up
     
    The dashboard-style control panel of AI Suite 3 lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Maximus XII Apex system with ease. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Connectivity 
     
    Maximus XII Apex is well equipped to deliver supersmooth wireless connectivity and compatibility with multiple input sources and PCIe extensions, all of which are a must have for any setups.
     
     
     
     
     
    Storage
     
    Three PCIe 3.0 M.2
    ROG Maximus XII Apex features three M.2 slots wired directly to the Z490 PCH. Two slots support both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, and the other slot supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Additional Intel Optane memory recognises, remembers, and speeds up access to most frequently used files, applications, and games for faster, more responsive performance.
     
    ROG DIMM.2
    The ROG DIMM.2 module is an innovative expansion card that allows two M.2 drives to be connected via a DDR4 interface. Add a metal heatsink to handle the heat generated at maximum performance, while at the same time giving your build a bit of style.
     
     
     
     
     
    Networking 
     
    Onboard WiFi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast wireless-networking speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense WiFi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.
     
    Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6. 
     
    Intel 2.5G Ethernet
    Onboard Intel 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
     
     
     
     
     
    Audio 
     
    SupremeFX
    Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. This integrated audio solution utilises the S1220A codec to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature.
