Check out the Gskill 7600/36 QVL (image below circled in red), only one motherboard listed so far, what a surprise which one. lol

F5-7600J3646G16GX2-TZ5RK kit in black is arriving today around 2pm, my first entry into the world of DDR5. :cool:

Of course, I cannot test the kit until the Z790 Apex arrives. "Patience Padawan" 😛

@Braegnok @Silent Scone@ROG I don't believe "most" enthusiasts have discovered the increased responsiveness offered by high-speed mem kits yet, but they will. For my apps 4400MT/s to 5866MT/s was like moving from SATA to PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs (exaggeration :p) - completing work is so much faster.

Cannot imagine what the jump from 5866 to 7866 will be like, wow!

Gskill 7600 kits sold out in 6hrs on launch day last thursday.

Now Newegg is asking $10 more, lol :rolleyes:

Was guessing the 7800 kits would be $499, and the 7600 kits $449-$459, so when I saw $409, had to jump on it - add to cart. 😛

My 7600 mem kit is arriving Monday, woooooo so excited. 1st DDR5 kit ever 7600Mhz, not too shabby! :cool:

You have to pay to play when it comes to high speed kits.

Currently still using C36 6000 Samsung from launch 😉

So it turns out the M.2 gen 5 riser card for the Z790 Apex is not only FHHL (full height half length) like the Z690 Apex riser - it's FHFL (full height full length)

"It's a freaking CANOE" :rolleyes:

Why is ROG throwing a fan and fan mount into the box? Are we expecting extremely high thermals somewhere on the board?
