Hello everyone,

I gonna join Z490 soon, will be paired with 10900K.
Not yet decided if I'll go for a Formula XII and use 4x8GB 4000C15 kit or turn to Apex XII and use 2x16GB 4000C19.
Wondering if 4x8 is going to be fine now on Z490, wondering about IMC & stuff.

Probably for the LAN I'll opt for Version 1.0.0.13, since I read here that there are some issues with the firmware...
WRT bios, should I stick with the default one 0403, or update to 0607?


Thank you.

I'm already very happy with my 2x8GB 4000C15, really good stuff in games, another kit made same week is standing by just in case I'll opt for a Formula XII.

Probably for the LAN driver I'll stick to 1.0.0.13, since I read here that there are some issues with the firmware...

Hi if you go for Formula use bios 0606 i needed that to train my 4x8gb 4000mts corsair memory modules.

So, it was missing a 0, as I was saying, the version number was off, it is supposed to be 4 numbers.

So which Bios is considered the best right now for the Maximus Xii Hero?
im Running 10900k and 4x8gb ddr3600 cl14 @4100 cl15 with really low subtimings right now.

Since apex has got PPD and TXP added in Beta Bios, will the Hero get it also?

About RAM, I have those max xii extreme qvl kits on my watchlist (google search links):

- "CMK32GX4M2G4700C18" (Ver3.44)
- "F4-4500C19Q-32GTZR"
- "F4-4500C19Q-32GTRS"
- "F4-4500C19Q-32GTZR"
- "F4-4500C19Q-32GTZN"
- "CMK32GX4M4G4400C19"
- "F4-4400C19Q-32GTRS"
- "F4-4400C19Q-32GTZR"
- "F4-4400C19Q-32GTZN"
- "CMK32GX4M4G4266C19"
- "F4-4266C19Q-32GTZR"
- "F4-4266C19Q-32GTRS"
- "F4-4266C19Q-32GTRG"
- "F4-4266C19Q-32GTZN"
- "F4-4266C17Q-32GTRS"
- "F4-4266C17Q-32GTRG"
- "F4-4266C17D-32GTZN"
- "AX4U400038G18-QRS"
- "CMK32GX4M2Z4000C18" (Ver3.31)
- "F4-4000C15Q-32GTZR"
- "F4-4000C19D-32GTZR"

The great majority of them aren't available at the moment. I would like to get my hands on those 4500 MHz G.Skills, else if due to unavailability I have to settle for 4000 MHz, I'd like these 15-16-16-39 timings (the second from the bottom), not the 19-19-19-36 (at the bottom).

How does obtaining those fastest RAMs usually work? Do they appear at some point?

Regarding the XMP profiles, I see discrepancies (mostly at the last clock number) in the vendor vs. asus spec. I guess that those do need to be entered manually, according to the QVL information.
Keep exploring, keep innovating, keep creating

Do you want something you just enable XMP and go or are you ok with setting things manually and doing hours of testing? If you want something simple/easy I would recommend 4000-4133 kits. The higher speed kits can be tricky to make work especially if using 4 dimms or 2 x 16g sticks.

Also those Gskill 4500 19 are 19-26-26. You will probably get as good or better performance from the slower 4000 15-16-16 or something like 4133 17-17-17 kits. The 4266 17-18-18 are also an excellent kits. If it were me I would suggest one of these 3 for someone that wants something easier to get working.

Look here https://www.gskill.com/configurator to see more real world speeds the average user can expect. Most of the z490 boards are only 4133 by Gskill for the reason that those higher speeds are harder to hit for the average user.


Asus may have 4500-4800 for QVL but that will require everything being top notch probably requiring binning CPU, MB and RAM sticks.
