    Supply and demand would be my guess.

    Hello

    If the ROG_EXT connector is is a priority one should choose the motherboard with that in mind.

    The ROG Front Base will still work with the Z370 boards with limited functionality through USB. It will show the time, CPU frequency, CPU fan speed, CPU temperature and MB temperature. To use it, you'll need to attach an ASUS USB Q-Connector block or an internal USB extension cable to the USB side of the ROG_EXT cable coming from the ROG Front Base and attach it to the USB 2.0 header on the motherboard.

    Note, it does not seem to work with the latest AI Suite. You'll need to uninstall AI Suite and reinstall the ROG Front Base driver. It does work with the AI Suite from the Z270 boards.

    Many thanks my friend, It works like a charm, even with the latest AI Suite. Seems that overclocking profile doesn't work, but I never used that.

    Thanks again.
