It should work, however there's no need for a hub unless you're experiencing disconnection issues with your Apex.

Don't put the Apex on one if you can avoid it. Put everything else on a hub if possible, but leave a port clear for your Xim setup to ensure enough power for your setup (mice and kbs can be power-hungry).

That said, you can connect the Apex to a powered USB hub and it should work. Don't put it on the same hub / port as a HDD, that thing will all the USB bandwidth and you may experience power shortages.
