    Newer ASUS motherboards without ROG EXT header for OC Panel?

    I use the ASUS OC Panel mounted in a 5.25" bay just for readouts of the CPU temp and cpu fan rpm, plus clock frequency and multiplier. Is it my imagination or are the newer ASUS motherboards without the ROG EXT header for cabling to the OC Panel? The ROG EXT connector uses one USB 2.0 mobo header plus a special purpose ROG Ext panel that looks similar to a USB 2.0 panel.

    (1) Has ASUS stopped providing ROG_EXT headers on ROG motherboards
    (2) Is there a USB interface device and driver to adapt an OC Panel to a ROG motherboard that does not have the ROG_EXT header? Or does ASUS have plans to produce such an interface?

    Thanks!

    That's 18-1 PIN ROG EXT

    Thanks Vlada011. Also the Zenith Extreme and Zenith Alpha don't have ROG_EXT. I am just wondering if newer mobos are less likely to have ROG-EXT than older mobos, if ASUS is abandoning it over time.

    Looks like they abandon.
    They are very fast with innovations and very rear something long stay on market.
    Most of high end motherboards get new stuff.

    I can't find to buy ASUS ROG Universal VGA Holder, ASUS give with several motherboards but now stop to offer and him with newer models.
    And I didn't saw more useful stuff. Someone to offer me change with SupremeFX Hi-Fi device I got with RVE10 I would change immediately.
    It's stupid to keep styrofoam in corner of GPU.

    Has ASUS stopped providing ROG_EXT headers on ROG motherboards

    Yep! Last motherboards to have the ROG_EXT headers are the ROG Maximus IX series.

    The header was superseded by ASUS Node. As an open standard, it allows monitoring and control via third-party devices. Chassis such as the InWin303 support OLED control.

    Thank you Silent Scone.

    This ASUS Node sounds exciting: open source protocol for hardware telemetry and control? This opens up a lot of possibilities for 3rd party monitors/controllers or maybe even DIY monitors/controllers maybe using Raspberry Pi? I can't find any documentation on ASUS Node other than a picture of a 12-1 mobo header labeled "NODE". Can you please suggest good documentation, or is it too new for it to be available?

    Thank you

    Thank you Dimitrios1971, I see that. It looks like if one is interested in hardware telemetry, the future is with ASUS Node. I don't yet see any 3rd party devices for it yet, but in the future they should be available for sure. It might even bring back 5.25" bays
