    So it there an answer if 6pin PCI-E cable can be plugged in that strange power slot?

    Whatever it is, it's stuck / glued on quite hard. Not able to scrape it and I don't want to use any tools what could leave marks or whatever and have warranty / return denied for something I'm not at fault. This is a poor quality check and for a an item priced like this it's not acceptable.

    It's a pci-e cable. Gigabyte TRX40 xtreme has one too, but it's correctly named and described opposed to Asus.. Shot from the gigabyte manual:

    Don't worry, just plug it in if you need it.

    Yeah...can understand not wanting to hack at it...

    But I'd have a go with something plastic...or a soldering iron myself...but that's just me...

    If you're sending it back I wouldn't bother


    @Baze_Geo...yes 6pin PCIe power connector

    And it's not my own hardware, I'm just helping a friend out.

    I'm building a TRX40 system for myself, it's not going to be an Asus BOARD because of the issues I had with the first Gen Zenith. This situation is not helping me change my mind lol.

    My friend instructed me to send the board back to Amazon and request I change it for MSI or Gigabyte and so it shall be.

    I just got my very own...it's crazy high quality...it has it's own gravitational field the sheer quality weight!....

    The ROG multi tip screwdriver!...If I'd known it came with that I'd have got one sooner...

    Will be testing 24 32 and 64 core when that comes out...PCIe 4.0 too...the future is here

    I get the same error code C6 with ASUS ROG STRIX TRX40-E. I have sent it back, and now waiting for the shop to show it to Asus next week.
    I will never buy Asus again, their service support doesn't reply to my email even after a week. Moving to Msi and Gigabyte.
    Please post here more details on your motherboard return.
    I shall do the same.

    I purchased from Amazon EU, so it's completely hassle free. I was refunded as soon as they got it no questions asked.

    It's the main reason why I only use Amazon for certain items that I know can be problematic, I have no time deal with small vendors or manufacturers and its representatives.

    FAN CARD not detected in BIOS but detected in OS ?

    I have both Zenith X399 Alpha and TRX40.
    In both cases I use expansion fan card.

    In case of X399 Fan card is detected properly in bios and OS, but in case of TRX40 it's only detected under OS..

    I tried different bioses... reset the bios.. pull the battery etc.. nothing retrigger expansion card to be detected?

    This motherboard has 2 major issues with cpu and case FAN control

    1/
    This motherboard has FAN Spin Up/Down delay setting issues.
    Fan speed is constantly changing... this rapid variation creates extra noise...
    Just opening Chrome will make your fans spin faster immediately for few seconds.
    FAN Spin Up/Down delay settings are available in BIOS and FanExpert but it don't work in NEITHER.

    Reported in
    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...137#post798137
    and
    Support case E2001041256 (opened early Jan - still no useful feedback)

    2/
    As reported by macmus and myself
    Fan Extension Card II is not configurable from BIOS, only accessible in Windows through FanXpert.
    This same card is accessible and configurable in BIOS on other ASUS motherboards.
    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...ghlight=zenith


    @ASUS representatives in this Forum could you take these 2 issues seriously please?
    These are 2 major flaws in this high end card that can be fixed with a simple BIOS/Software update
