    Question Crosshair VIII Dark Hero USb-PD support?

    Which (if any) of the USB ports on the ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero have USB Power Delivery support? I don't see any information about this in the manual or the BIOS so I'm completely in the dark about this. I need an answer one way or the other please.

    My understanding is that any USB Type C (of which it has one) is USB-PD and typically any 3.1 or higher USB. So from this understanding, everything on the motherboard except the 4 x USB 2.0 port(s) should be USB-PD.

    So, in summary the, are USB-PD
    4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 port(s)
    4 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port(s)
    1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 front panel connector port(s)
    6 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port(s)

    I thought that the PD was an optional standard that the OEM can choose to implement or not. Also, there's three versions (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0).

    I've been playing around with this for a while now and no matter what I do the best that I can can get out of any of the USB ports is 220mA. That's NOT USB-PD. It should be more like 5 amps. What the hell do I have to to get USB-PD out of the ports?

    What kind of device are you trying to power? As you say, PD is optional and even among PD devices you'll have varying wattage. A lot of USB devices will also support something like QC 3.0 which is not PD so if both don't support the same standard you'll fall back to base USB power.

    I don't know about the USB A ports, but I can check them. I can confirm however that the USB-C port both fast charges my phone AND drives my fast wireless charger. A benefit I did not expect with the wireless charging pad.
