    Thumbs up ROG Front Base does not include USB2 header required for Firmware update!

    ROG Front Base does not include USB2 header required for Firmware update. I am unable to find a store that sells one here in Australia and have tried the following.

    1/ Asked local computer stores if they sell one.

    2/ Contacted the online reseller Scorptec that sold me the ROG Front Base.

    3/ Contacted ASUS Australia about the problem

    4/ searched Ebay for one

    None could or would help.

    Without this USB2 header I am unable to update the firmware on the ROG Front Base from firmware v40 to firmware v48 which is essential to making it functional with a ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero motherboard and rendering it as useful as a piece of glorified plastic.

    After paying $110 for it including delivery. I can only think of one thing to do with it which would result in the ASUS Rep that decided what would be bundled it walking awkwardly for weeks afterwards.

    Unhappy Jan!

    I know you'd think they would at least warn you that you need it for updating the firmware in the product description.
