I have a new build put together and the memory is giving me all sorts of issues. I have seen a few people saying that the Apex board might have some dim slot issues but not sure if that is actually an issue. I snagged up a 6000mhz CL36 G Skill kit and tried pairing with my apex board and 12900k. Everything is on a custom water loop with fairly solid temps. I am on the latest bios. I recognize the Samsung flavor of sticks are not officially supported by the Apex board yet, but am curious as to why (per the QVL). The hero board has mine listed already but the apex list seems light. I tried the XMP profile and have had very little luck. I have been able to get it to boot into windows but typically crashes on any heavy workload and sometimes even just being in windows things lock up.
I am just curious if this is something I need a bios update for and just have to wait or I should look at going after different memory. Part of why I got the apex was to finally play around with memory overclocking but not even being able to run xmp kind of sucks. Just surprised that the apex board has so little support for memory so far.
I appreciate any help and sorry if this is covered elsewhere.
12900k (stock for now until I get memory sorted)
G Skill F5-6000U3636E16GX2-TZ5K (32gb)
EVGA 3090 Kingpin Hydrocopper
EVGA 1300W G2 PSU
Edit: I have also tried the built in profiles on the apex, like all of them and none of those seem to work even speeds down to like 5200mhz, wouldn't boot into windows on those. I also tried the XMP and bumped voltage up...no luck really.

I can't speak to the Gskill kit you have, however I have an Apex board and like you have had continual BSODS on both XMP 1 and XMP II profiles with a Corsair 5600mhz kit. Runs fine at JEDEC speeds. Latest BIOS 1101, and setting XMP1 with a slight bump of VDD up to 1.275v seems to have helped. Been stable for a week or so. My kit isn't on the QVL list either.

If G Skill F5-6000U3636E16GX2-TZ5K will work on a Hero it should work on an Apex. I have the same ram and Apex but haven't had a chance to build it yet.
